Cingular adds fee for non-GSM subscribers

Cingular plans to charge non-GSM subscribers an extra $5 per month. The move is intended to nudge long-time customers to upgrade their analog or TDMA phones. Getting everyone on the latest technology is good for the industry (and certainly good for developers), but I'm quite sure this is the right approach. Cingular says the surcharge will affect about 4.7 million subscribers, generating an extra $23.5 million in revenue per month. Article
