At home I use my old (modified) SL100 docks and outdoors antenna.
At Work I'm using a new SL2 home dock and the old windowsill antenna from my SL100.
In the Car I'm using my old (modified) SL100 dock and dot antenna.

All of them are running great (knock on wood). Last night I did have a glitch where I had almost no signal in the car on the way home from dinner, but got perfect reception in the dock at home, and again in the car dock on the way to work. I think (hope) it was just a fluke. I've had great signal in the dock at work and a few more times in the car during the day too.

The jack on your SL2 may be messed up.

I think you can remove your battery and it will fit in the old dock you sold your pal. If you still have the problem I'd exchange for a new one.

I think if you explain you are exchanging faulty equipment under warrentee they would likely waive the $15 fee.
