UPDATE: http://news.smh.com.au/cdma-mobile-service-to-end-on-april-28/20080415-268j.html

nowwearetalking:

Telstra welcomes confirmation the old CDMA network will close on 28 April 2008 following Government confirmation of the date earlier today. Telstra Country Wide® Group Managing Director, Mr Geoff Booth, said the vast majority of customers, including those in rural and regional Australia, had already moved across to the world leading Next G™ network, and he encouraged customers remaining on the CDMA network to do the same as soon as possible.


Mr Booth said Telstra would begin contacting the remaining customers immediately to inform them of the decision and urge them to move before the old CDMA network was shut down for good. “We will be sending all CDMA customers a further letter and text messages to make sure they are aware of the final closure date, which is now just two weeks away."


Telstra will keep the 1800 888 888 number open until 1 July 2008
and in the event the staff accreditation program was not completed as expected by then, Telstra would continue to operate the hotline and handset exchange program until it was complete. “We will also continue to offer handset exchanges in genuine cases beyond 1 July 2008 via our traditional channels," Mr Booth said.
