    That's all nice and good, but Cingular had a roaming partner with T-Mobile in that area, yet you go 2 hours east towards Dublin, GA and McRae and there's no service whatsoever. Cingular should cover that area before having worried about the rural areas around Columbus, and trust me I wored in this area from time to time, that entire area is rural as can be.

    I guess that cingy wants to kill roaming in the state... There's only 1 patch of roaming left on alltel if the buildout doesn't cover it. How about building out areas that have 0 gsm? I hope that the buildout cost less than roaming!
