I was talking to an Alltel rep earlier today that indicated the VA conversion was essentially done, and getting new devices in customers' hands was the only thing they were waiting on. Further, it sounded like the devices will be arriving at customers' doorsteps within 3 weeks.
Can anyone (cclay) confirm they are this far along? Can we really expect devices to be mailed out shortly after the Nov 1. cutoff for the VA market?
I too am hoping for an HSPA+ modem as a replacement but that seems REALLY out there... would rock tho!
Clay, that makes sense, the Velocity seems like their current standard "go-to" USB card...
cclay25, does this include southwestern Virginia counties? I saw this thread about VA customers having their phones shipped in November. I'm in Wise County and the website lists an estimated ship date of 12-4-10. Just wondering about us, way down here in the mountains.
What about mecklenburg county it doesn't even look like the towers have been touched yet.
Also, you may not know the answer to this question but here it goes...if there is a cell tower that currently has one antenna array at the top and it is serving both Alltel and Verizon customers, will there need to be two antenna arrays (one below the other) to broadcast both AT&T's GSM and Verizon's CDMA? Or can the current single array output both technologies? I just ask this because currently most of our towers just have the single array.
Bigpapa: Glad to see someone else from the region, hopefully it goes smoothly. These new phones can't get here quick enough

The stores in Billings, MT last week were in full remodel. The interior was mostly stripped out and they had a ATT booth with phones setup along with an iPhone. ATT seems to be really on the ball with this transition.Originally Posted by cclay25
The 3G card is the USBConnect Lightning. I just got my AT&T letter regarding the data card.
