    You will have a similar problem. CDMA is also range dependent to to
    signal synchronization timing limitations.

    Future Bell Labs Nobel prize winners are working to fix this:

    "Bell Labs Research China provides internship opportunities for
    undergraduate, graduate students and Ph.D. candidates.

    In BLRC, you will enjoy favorable practicing conditions, work with the
    most talented researchers and engage in frontier research fields. So
    far, more than one hundred graduate and doctorate students from couple
    of the top universities including Tsinghua University and Peking
    University have finished their practice here."
    .....
    On March 23, 2000, Bell Labs launched a new research facility in
    Beijing, China - Bell Labs Research China (BLRC). It was the first time
    in its history that Bell Labs established a research laboratory outside
    the United States.

    BLRC is a center of technical excellence and innovation to strengthen
    the support to Lucent business units and customers in the China and
    Asia Pacific region. Primarily, BLRC concentrates its efforts on
    applications. It develops innovative ideas on applications, implements
    these ideas by prototypes, and transfers these results to Lucent
    product houses and Lucent Worldwide Services (LWS). While developing
    truly innovative applications, we also do fundamental research in the
    fields of Internet technologies, software, wireless communications,

    I am an engineering master's student at NJIT: New Jersey Institute of Technology.
    Many of the professors are ex-Bell Labs, not by choice
    but due to downsizing, cancelled projects and disbanded groups.
    Most of my masters' classmates are from China, India and Pakistan.
    Most of the PhD students are Chinese.

    It's bad enough that U.S. citizens are competing just for seats in the class,
    but these foreign classmates are eligible for research jobs
    that I and the professors are not?

    It works the other way too: there are a lot of projects/jobs they are not
    eligible for in the US! (after all, there is a limit on work visas for
    skilled labor, unlike the case for unskilled labor - but I digress.
    Furthermore there are often issues of security clearances). In any case,
    if they're admitted into your school on merit (which I bet they are),
    you're better off for it as they help keep the school open (last I heard,
    not enough US citizens apply to CS/EE schools. Thus if it wasn't for the
    non-citizens, schools would either close for lack of funding or drop their
    standards; either way, you loose).

    Approved by China Ministry of Personnel in late 2003, Bell Labs
    Research China becomes one of several foreign research labs in China
    that can run the postdoctoral program to attract and nurture more young
    talents in China.

    Be consistent with the goal of the China Postdoctoral System, the
    postdoctoral program at BLRC will provide good working and research
    environments for young researchers in China to conduct research in
    certain challenging area.

    Now, applications are invited for postdoctoral positions at BLRC, for
    following projects:

    Location-based Multimedia Wireless Network Application
    Research on 2.5G, WLAN and upcoming 3G wireless communication for 2008
    Olympics

    What an asshole... posting public copies of private emails.

    Let me clue you in...

    a) by posting offtopic and posting multiple copies of exactly the same crap,
    you're violating your ISP's rules and risking termination of service.

    b) No one gives a rat's ass how Lucent screwed you. Get over it. Get over
    yourself. Get another job if you haven't already. I'd tell you I sympathize
    with your plight, since it's happened to me too, but I don't sympathize with
    you because you're an obnoxious twit.

    With my Sanyo 4900 two years ago, I distinctly had web pages download
