in recent kernel (not in 2.4, and maybe only in recent 2.6) you can
flush the FDB using sysfs:
/sys/class/net/%s/bridge/flush (whole bridge)
/sys/class/net/%s/brif/%s/flush (single interface)
If you want you can lower the ageing timer from the default 300sec using
Maybe you can just force your phone to register more frequently so the
bridge will just learn the new port when you move.
