    List of US GSM Providers

    Hello. I was wondering which of the major providers offer GSM service here in the U.S. As far as I know, the list is:

    AT&T
    Cingular
    T-Mobile
    Nextel

    Are there any others? Thanks for your help.

    T-Mobile is the only 100% GSM cellular provider.
    AT&T and Cingular run mixed networks (GSM and TDMA.)
    Nextel does not offer GSM (they are iDEN.)
    There are also smaller, regional GSM providers (Einstein, etc.)

    AirDiagm aka Eistein PCS, also Nextel's GSM service only works in
    Europe where there are no Nextel networks (unlike S. America
    where Nextel operates in Mexico, Brazil and other countries).

    Can you give some details on this statement? Everything customer-facing I'm seeing from SunCom still indicates that they are "SunCom, a member of the AT&T Wireless Network," and there are similarly no adverse indications on the Triton PCS investor relations site.

    * TOTAL SPECULATION PART *
    The only reason for SunCom to deaffiliate with AT&T would be to get bought by Cingular. Otherwise, an independent SunCom would just be a slightly larger TDMA/GSM version of CDMA nTelos, which just went bankrupt WITHOUT the added expense of a massive network rollout/conversion.
    * END TOTAL SPECULATION PART *

    I'd appreciate any more info you have on this. That'd be a pretty big bombshell if it's true.
