Re: Need to use two M-Cells

Your MC is supposed to hand-off TO a macro cell during a call. In my experience it's successful about half the time.
...Though most of the time I don't want it to hand off unless I'm driving away from my home.
This had been beat to death in many other threads, but I think Microcell performance would be enhanced if you could set some options to prevent hand-off to a macro cell. But, as I previously mentioned, it would work for me if each Microcell was more like a macrocell part of the system. That is, calls in progress could hand off between multiple Microcells or between a macrocell and a Microcell.
If I'm on a call and I walk out to get the mail I'm going to hand off to a macrocell. Then when I walk back in to the house....bye.
The Microcell is not perfect but it's better than nothing. And for the OP's purposes, two should be better than what he has now.
