    no-go on Ev for Champaign, IL as of Feb 7. Kinda surprises me considering all the people from chicago that go to school here, would expect them to cater the cell service to them.

    I have an inside source that tells me the entire state of Iowa is supposed to go EVDO by late spring/early summer.

    I think we roam on Verizon when in Colorado. My service was great, even on top of Ski Cooper, near Leadville.

    I'm noticing EVDO showing up intermittantly, mostly in the very early morning in the Mishawaka, Indiana area (near South Bend). It has been up for a while over toward Elkhart, IN but that was because the towers there are new. Here, they are old towers that are being updated.

    I live in Michiana as well. I got excited when I saw the little EV icon pop up on my Q after returning home from a business trip a couple of weeks ago. Then it went away :(

    I called and talked to a tech support guy who emailed the person responsible for launching EVDO in northern Indiana. The answer I got back was "scheduled to go live in August, but don't hold us to that". I've been getting the "it's coming soon" answer for over a year and just don't believe them anymore.
