    Hi, I was wondering what localities/metropolitan areas within the "Nationwide Plan" for Cingular Wireless, and roaming partners, operate under the 800 Mhz. band or have 800 Mhz. towers present? The following states/metropolitan areas, to the best of my knowledge, have 800 Mhz. Towers:

    Philadelphia/SoutherEastern PA, Southern New Jersey, Northern New Jersey/New York City via 800 Mhz. AT&T Wireless, Los Angeles via 800 Mhz. AT&T Wireless.


    Could you list metroplitan areas where Cingular has its network established (unlike New York where one roams of ATT), and whether this area is 800 or 1900 Mhz?

    Cingular is majority 800 mhz in every market excluding (Tulsa,Ok) and the Cali and Nevada and the state of Washington.

    Wow, quick response, thanks. I see WirelessAdvisor has a databse of carriers/frequencies from the main page, is this information pretty accurate? I see they have AT&T listed both as 800/1900 for Santa Barbara, California?

    Those are licenses, so they may have a license to supply it there but don't.

    Bobolito, the information is appreciated, it seems 800 Mhz. is king for Cingular here in the Northeast. How about San Francisco, Las Vegas, and northern New York? Regarding Houston, I was under the impression Cingular had their own 800 mhz. towers established there (Houston Cellular formerly??).

    About Houston, I just double checked and you are right, I was referring to San Antonio and not Houston. The last time I was in San Antonio my phone was using AT&T at 800Mhz. In Houston though Cingular must have bought Houston Cellular.

    About upstate NY is mostly Cingular 800Mhz. I believe Albany and Buffalo are both on Cingular 800Mhz.

    The West coast of the US is mostly on Cingular GSM system but I am not sure if it is 800 or 1900 Mhz.
