No Service in the "Rocket City?"

Come on. I checked the service availability in Huntsville, AL (Redstone Aresnal, Space and Rocket Center, 100's of high-tech companies, etc.) and Yada Yada has absolutely NO SERVICE in this area. Hard to believe... Doesn't sound like it's ready for prime time to me. With as much traffic as we have going in an out of this area, you would think this would be a covered city. Guess I'll Wait for the Palm M505x (Wireless Palm Vc).

They are running into the problem that there are several cities in the BellSouth Empire that have no CDPD service. Atlanta is one of them, too, which sucks for me. You can't blame YadaYada for this. Blame the FCC and the telcoms for not being able to agree on a wireless standard.
