State of the republic (v. 1, issue 7)

Blog Post created by sarahd on Oct 19, 2012

We’re steady as she goes this week with continuing to roll out more waves. Here’s the latest info from the streets of republic:


Add-a-line for Wave A’ers: Wave A folks now have the option to add up to two additional lines to their account. This feature is separate from the upgrade program, meaning even if you've been through the upgrade process already, you're still able to purchase up to two additional lines. The invitation is good through October 29 at 11:59 p.m. ET and is for the single-band DEFY XT. Once the dual-band version is available, Wave A’ers that haven’t purchased the single-band version will have the option to add up to two additional lines to their account. Have questions about add-a-line? Find more info here.


Waves: We’re picking up steam with six waves currently open: G,H,I,J,K,L. For specific dates and times of each wave, check out the Beta Waves Status page. As a reminder, if you’re waiting for the dual-band DEFY XT, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll send an email to everyone that didn’t use their initial invite once the dual-band is available.


Product team update: The product team is keeping busy this week with working on getting the CUI tracker available again in the portal. They’re also working on making it easier to submit a number transfer request by not requiring a pin number field for service providers that don’t require one.


Local community: Last week, our parent company, Bandwidth, participated in the Under the Big Top Career Fair held in Durham, NC. This unique career fair serves up food, beverages, and a little entertainment while you speak with local tech companies about current job opportunities. Check out the job opportunities Bandwidth currently has to offer.


That’s all we have on the soapbox this week, but speaking of fairs, I think I might head down to the NC State Fair. Deep fried candy bar, anyone?
