Cingular to charge TDMA and analog users fee

Cingular Wireless is doing some more heavy prodding to get customers off the analog and TDMA networks. The carrier is planning to charge users on these networks $5 per month as the number of analog and TDMA customers fall and the per-subscriber cost of using the network increases. Cingular plans to shut down the TDMA and analog networks in 2008. Cingular said it offers incentives for customers to migrate to GSM but admits they have to sign new contracts to do so. But, hey, there's always the prepaid GoPhone service.
