that's not really a solution.
yers ago i had i cellphone working in the 1800 band only. since my  
provider did not cover the entire area i was moving in sometimes the phone  
did not find connection and scanned wildly burning a lot of power.
for exactly those situations one could disable scanning, the phone did not  
try to find a new tower once it lost connection, but when back in coverage  
it worked.

i think the comments or something i found on the net suggested that one of  
the commands disabled updating of signal strength, thus wrong numbers are  
to expect but should be ok soon (depending on the intervall)
