Alpha Tag


Jan 9, 2006, 11:32 PM
Anyone else notice that the alpha tag on the LG U320 says Cingular Extend? I though that was a thing of the past. Hmmmmm...

I see that every now and again...mostly with nokia 6340s. Must just be some confusion between the 3G and 2G parts of the phone... Confused

or maybe its a pre-pay or an unactive chip. you do see it on nokia's more often. but i know for a fact if you have a pre-pay or an unactive chip as soon as you walk into an area where a cell signal is repeated it still says cingular extend.

Actually, alpha tags change all the time, who knows when that pic was taken. Considering that is a new phone, it probably isn't set up for consumer use and may therefore roam on a t-mobile tower and may possibly even get the tag when on an AT&T tower. It doesn't mean you will never get Cingular Extend message because, in fact, you could still be on a roaming plan. If you aren't on a roaming plan, you may STILL get the Cingular Extend message but not get roaming CHARGES.
