TDMA Service Sunset

Cingular will be shutting down our TDMA and Analog networks in early
2008 and will begin that process by turning down TDMA service in about
eighteen markets in 2007. Currently, over 99 percent of all minutes
used are carried on our GSM network. As a result, Cingular is
encouraging all of our TDMA customers to migrate to our higher-quality
GSM network.

Rogers Wireless of Canada has announced that they will turn off their
TDMA and Analog service effective May 31, 2007.

After that date, Cingular TDMA and Analog subscribers will no longer
be able to make or receive calls while traveling in areas serviced by
the Rogers TDMA/Analog networks in Canada or any other international
TDMA destinations.
