New results for the handoff probability in wireless mobile networks are developed taking into account the effects of the limited bandwidth and unreliable wireless channel, either of which may result in the forced termination of an ongoing call connection. The formulae are derived based upon the general scenario, i.e. general call holding time, general cell residence time and the generalized wireless channel model. Numerical investigation is carried out to discuss the impact of the wireless channel characteristics upon the handoff probability.
