    Has anyone heard anything about the elimination of certain kinds of packet data in 2009?

    I heard that security alarms and other services like on-star would be affected when everything goes digital.

    Anyone know what this is about?

    I forgot, how long will anolog be up and running?

    I think Feb 18 2008 is the date for analog to be optional. I think the GSM providers will most like shut it down soon after. My guess Verizon might keep it up in rural areas. We will probably find out more when Verizon brings out there 10K form this month.

    Verizon I think will shut down CDPD this year if I am correct.

    CDPD is not packet data it's circuit switched. Packet data is what all IP based wireless networks use to send data ;)
