(keitai-l) Re: SMS in US

Hey Jeff -

the mMode service should be available in your area - any friend's feedback?

Just what is ATT's network mainly? Are they running both TDMA and GSM?
And now mMode on GPRS? And they're talking about moving to EDGE? 

How on earth do they get deals from handset vendors with that mishmash...
