    With us in NJ with the JV Cingular will want everyone to use the Blue network over the Orange network because the Orange network here is T-Mobile/Cingular's.
    Eventually it will be all T-Mobiles, but for now Orange customers can use both networks.
    The statment sound's like it means where Cingular didn't have any towers at all & only AWE did, I believe AZ is one of these area's but i could be wrong.

    But why would you want a 64K SIM in an area where there are only blue towers? The purpose of ENS is to dynamically change the phone between the blue and orange networks depending on the load of each network in your specific area. Therefore, in an area with only blue towers, there's nothing to load-balance because everyone is already on the blue network.

    bobolito, who is this directed at? If it was towards me, I didn't have an option for which SIM I got, they just gave me a 64K one...

    Just another question, sort of off-topic. . . Does anyone know who manufactures the 64k sim? Is it Cingular or another company?

    Cingular doesn't manufacture any of the SIM's, Phones, Networks they just sell the service.

    I was merely questioning viewfly's statement saying that 64K SIMs are more necessary for those of us in blue-only area. There's no native Cingular towers in my area, only they T-Mobile ones that we share and the blue towers.

    One company that makes the SIMs is called GemPlus. There is a 2nd vendor, and their name escapes me right now.

    Oh. That wasn't my statement, it was a quotation from forum member Kilo. The full link is in my post above. Like I said, I don't know if it is true or not, what Kilo said.

    Back from Paris today, and on the Cingular network again. Roaming worked really well with Cingular in Paris on 1800.
