This is Sprint's internal schedule for EV-DO launches, and is subject to
change, and most likely will change.

May 2005
Atlanta, Charlotte, Cleveland, Columbus, Connecticut, Dallas (partial),
Denver, Des Moines, Detroit, Ft. Myers (partial), Indianapolis (partial),
Kansas City, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Newark, New Orleans, Omaha,
Orlando (partial), Philadelphia, Releigh-Greensboro, Sacramento (partial),
San Antonio, San Francisco (partial), Tampa (partial)

June 2005
Austin, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Rio Grande Valley, St.
Louis

July 2005
Chicago, Corpus Christie, Milwaukee, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle

August 2005
Dallas, Ft. Myers, Sacramento, San Francisco, Washington DC

September 2005
Orlando

October
Indianapolis, Tampa

Q1 2006
All remaining corporate markets, and affiliate markets

Partial launches refer to either an airport-only launch, or an
airport-and-partial-metro launch.

In addition, Sprint will still be testing these areas and fine-tuning them
until the official launch of consumer EV-DO services, in the third quarter.
Based on the deployment outlook, it is currently expected that EV-DO will
launch in August, though that also depends on the ability for Sprint to
maintain this schedule as well as device availability and approval.

    Are these metro areas, or markets? In other words, does "Cleveland" include
    all of the Northeast Ohio area including the smaller cities of Ashtabula,
    Akron, etc.? Does "Los Angeles" include San Bernardino, Riverside, and the
    Victor Valley? Or does this schedule refer simply to the cities themselves
    and not the outlying areas?

    I know that SPCS has released one pcmcia data card for EVDO, but has not
    released an EVDO capable phones yet. Anyone hear any rumors as to new phone
    models soon to be released that will have EVDO capability?

    A couple of weeks back when there were some some posts here about EVDO
    being available on in some markets for testing, I myself was wondering
    what these folks were using to access it.

    Is there any chance that some of the phones Sprint currently sells are
    actually EVDO-capable, but that Sprint has disabled and concealed the
    EVDO capability until the network is ready???

    I use the Sierra Wireless 580, model AC580EVDO. Looks just like the
    550 that's been around for years.

    I wouldn't know, but it seems very doubtful.
