Cingular scales back sale of 3G handsets

Cingular scales back sale of 3G handsets

Phone Scoop is reporting that Cingular has stopped selling 3G handsets such as the LG CU320 in markets where the carrier's UMTS network is not yet available. At the moment, Cingular's 3G service is available in 15 markets nationwide. Although UMTS handsets such as the CU320 are backward-compatible with the carrier's slower EDGE network, the carrier's 3G services, such as Cingular Video, are not optimized for use over EDGE. Customers in non-UMTS markets have until June 30 to return their 3G handsets or wait until Cingular expands the network later this year.
