As we’re constantly working to improve service for our members, we’re excited to tell you about the progress we’re making on being able to support CDMA cell coverage on compatible 3.0 phones. So far, we’ve been in development with our carrier partner and have been able to conduct internal testing, which has been going well. We’re now ready to begin a soft launch of this new service.
Beginning today, some phones purchased through our online store by existing members will come with CDMA coverage. In order to ensure that you receive the best service possible, when you order a new phone, our automated system will check certain information about your order and your existing account to determine what type of coverage is best for you.
While most phones will come with GSM coverage, this early release of a few CDMA phones in a real-world environment will allow us to closely monitor our systems and help us further analyze the new service. Even though you won’t actually see any changes with this initial step, we wanted to give you an update and let you know where things are.
We’ll continue to work hard on this project and as soon as we’re able, we’ll provide you with more details.
If you have any questions, please let us know here and we’ll do our best to answer them.
Thanks for reading!
