State of the republic (v. 1, issue 4)

Blog Post created by sarahd on Sep 27, 2012

It’s been a busy week, but we’re happy we were able to address some pretty tough questions. Here’s the latest info and what we’ve been working on.


Upgrades: These are coming soon. With the new options we’re offering regarding the single-band and dual-band versions of the DEFY XT, we’re restructuring the upgrade flow. This requires further testing. We want to be sure the upgrade process is smooth and seamless for our Wave A’ers.


Waves: We’ll be continuing with Wave F this week. Wave F folks will have the option to purchase the single-band DEFY XT now, or can wait for the roll out of the dual-band DEFY XT. For those waiting for the dual-band, you’ll be notified via email once it’s ready for purchase. Please make sure we have the correct contact email address by logging in to My Account. If you’re still not sure which option would work best for you, check out the single-band DEFY XT coverage map, which illustrates the areas where we currently have coverage on the 1900MHz frequencies. 


Maps: Since we’re on the topic of maps, we’ve been working on more detailed coverage maps that we expect to have ready at the beginning of next week. They should give you a better idea of what type of coverage is available in your local area.


Looking ahead: We’ve been keeping theproductguy pretty busy lately, but we’ve decided to let him out for some fresh air to give us some info about the next OTA update, so be on the lookout for that soon.


Well, that’s all she wrote this week. Next week’s edition will be our first from our new office on N.C. State’s Centennial Campus!
