    That's not the point.. My point is that EDGE had an existing GSM network that AT&T bought and expanded. AT&T would have to build an entirely new network in the region because GSM went to CDMA (converted, not shared) when Verizon acquired Unicel. It's not financially viable to build a new network to cover mostly nothing. Also, they'd have to compete with mature networks from US Cellular and Verizon, so they'd get nothing out of it.

    This is very true, I misunderstood, the mind going mushy thing happens to us over 40 guys lol. We, and their coverage areas across NorCal, OR, SE ID and WY are lucky to have had Edge Wireless, I don't think we would have the AT&T network we do today without them, and what we would have would certainly be a far cry from the network we have now. Edge had also deployed quite a bit of 3G HSPA across their network before AT&T took over, so that certainly helped a lot too. Edge was 60% privately held, but AT&T had a minority 40% interest in them.

    I've noticed...but I'm just here for the chuckles!

    I was a customer when they were really the only game in town (Madison WI) and had many friends working at TDS. Now, I just shake my head and laugh to hide my sadness.

    I'm here...just re-upped my forum subscription. I'm waiting for Moto X Gen-2 to hit US Cellular later this month, and will give that a try. I like my current Note 2, but would like something with a little less bloatware out of the box.

    I still come through here to see how bad US Cellular has gotten. Most of the forum old timers are gone.

    Right on, it looks nice! Have you thought about the new Note 4 or Note Edge? I am not 100% sure if USCC will be carrying those, but I am betting they will.

    Not really interested in the Edge, but I'll look at the N4 when it gets to my local store. Again, I could live without the bloatware, or at least allow me to uninstall without rooting.

    I'm sure they'll have the Note 4, not sure about the Note Edge.

    I-70 goes all the way from KC to San Francisco? Been a Royals fan forever, but would love to see the cards pull it out. Keep it in the Midwest.
