    WTF US Cellular, they apparently don't care about east central IL. Big US cellular customer base out here, plus a university that caters to Chicago residents, and they give all of Iowa EVDO before us, if we even get it at all. I'm so pissed at them I'm considering finding a new provider. Oh but my parents are getting it in my hometown of 2000 people, 40 miles from ANYTHING!

    It's not indicated on your map though. If we're getting it out here, it needs to be soon because my contract is up in 6 weeks. If I don't have EV by then I'm switching to sprint or more likely AT&T. I'm tired of having only 2 bars in a city and trying to use mobile internet is slower than just walking home and using dsl.

    I feel your pain. OKC is not on the map for EVDO this year. I hate to say it, but it may be time to jump ship just to get modern phones and high speed access.

    Spoke with a saleswoman yesterday in Peoria, IL. She said it's coming on in three weeks, but she has no idea about Eastern IL, so that map that jeepon02 put out earlier had the date wrong but the coverage was probably accurate. Someone mentioned on here months ago that it supposedly should be on for all USCC network area by the fall, so I've given up hope till October.

    Tulsa, OK is live with EVDO and has been for a while, however, just recently I've been seeing the "EV" pop up on both my USCC phones when I'm in certain areas of my house. I'm approximately 80 miles north of Tulsa just across the KS/OK border. It also appears to be fairly consistent in Bartlesville, OK as well.

    Hopefully, it will continue to "bleed" north and eventually encompass SE Kansas:thumbup:

    In OKC, I gave up and went with Verizon. Upgraded to a Samsung Omnia.

    Love the speed, love the device. So far so good.
