    You will never get an answer from any calls to CS reps until everything is approved & the sales and swaps are completed so you will just have to sit back & wait for it to happen

    I purchased and iPhone Aug. 07 and have been using it in Plattsburgh, NY since then. I am an ATT wireless user. The iphone works fine on the unicel edge network, but is noticeable slower when compared to the ATT edge network.

    also take into consideration that the iPhone is slow on AT&Ts network as it is............i cant imagine what its like on Unicel :eek:

    EDIT: i think the idea is that they dont want dedicated iPhones in that area........because Unicels network cant handle data traffic all that great right now........they will keep selling it in AT&T native areas and once the integrate and upgrade Unicel they will start offering the iPhone to Unicel customers

    Yes, I believe that is the plan.

    Now that the petition to deny has been entered and countered, hopefully things can move along. Several members of congress have sided with Verizon urging the FCC to get their butt in gear. They do have a point that Unicel could never afford to upgrade to 3G, and this is one way it will happen. That is probably why Verizon has 3G pretty much network wide in VT right now.
