    WOW, AT&T is sure deploying it's GSM/GPRS rather quickly, according to their coverage map FL. is now covered.

    I wonder why the NY is not covered? You'd think that they would target business users in NYC/Manhattan area. (I want my damn GSM phone to work there when I go down there.)

    FL not GSM for ATT...yet

    I talked to two different CS Reps and they said FL is not covered...yet!

    One said that FL rollout is scheduled for late 2001. The other works in the GSM division in Seattle. He said that the FL coverage on the internet is a mistake and that it definately is NOT ACTIVE yet.

    More info is that Detroit rollout for ATT GSM happened a week ago. Chicago is not planned yet. My local dealer said look for very early 2002 for Chicago ATT GSM.

    I guess it'll be a late XMAS present for me. Actually if it's in mid february my Tax return will get me on GSM/GPRS quite nice.

    Why do you want GSM. In Seattle, it cost more for service and people aren't flocking to get one!

    GSM vs TDMA

    I want GSM because I have AT&T. I've been on for a couple of years and I'm comfortable. CS reps lower phone prices for me, I'm out of contract and I have a great dealer in my area.

    I'm a techo-geek. I've had 3 AT&T phones and the hassle to change phones is annoying. With GSM I could have 15 phones but swap my SIM and I'm using them All!! I am also the person who WOULD connect my phone to my laptop and dial up to the internet from my car while camping!

    US AT&T just completed an EDGE call with Nokia. That's 4 times faster than GPRS.

    That's fast!
