    A friend of mine, who works at Radio Shack received a memo today (Dec 15th)
    saying that Cingular no longer activates Preferred Nation plans in Oklahoma.





    See More: Preferred Nation plans no longer offered in Oklahoma.

    IMHO, good--the Preferred plans were confusing. The new plans are
    easier to understand--Home/Superhome GSM, Nation GSM or Nation GAIT. Is
    Texas the only place offering a Statewide GAIT?

    Is that PN for TDMA? Or for GSM and TDMA?

    What's the difference between the old Preferred Nation and the current
    Nation plan advertised on the website? The current Nation plan for GAIT
    phones (using OK zip code 73064) shows coverage pretty much throughout the
    US. It does require a GAIT phone though.

    Preferred Nations plans were for TDMA/AMPS only and most of them
    disappeared from the Cingular website when areas started overlaying
    GSM. SuperHome plans are for GSM-only in 1900 markets and GSM or GAIT
    in overlayed markets.

    The PN plan states that it requires a "tri-mode TDMA" phone. However,
    I'm sure there will be free GSM roaming available from companies that
    have the same SID for GSM and TDMA.

    There is no such thing as GSM does not use SIDs.

    The preferred nation greatly expanded your calling area to include most
    major parts of the US, along with many rural areas. However, there were a
    few areas where you paid for roaming. I found an old copy of their PN
    coverage area at
    http://onlinestore.cingular.com/imag...MA_7_10_03.gif

    I do not remember all of the specifics, but they had a rate plan for $39 for
    350 anytime minutes and I 1,000 or 3,000 off-peak minutes I believe.

    Looks like the current Nation plan for GAIT phones gives greater coverage
    (see map)
    http://onlinestore.cingular.com/html...ap_6_30_03.htm
    but at a slightly higher cost; $45 for 400 rollover and 1000 N&W minutes,
    but it appears there are no roaming charges on this plan.
