Cellular South Hangs Up on Overage Charges

True Unlimited Plan Includes Unlimited Voice and Data Services to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere in the Nation for One Flat Rate; Existing Customers Not Required to Renew Contract to Sign Up

JACKSON, MS--(Marketwire - October 8, 2007) - Cellular South, the nation's largest privately held wireless provider, today announced the launch of its True Unlimited Nationwide Plan for voice and data services, which includes unlimited calls, text messaging, photos, e-mails and Internet access anywhere in the nation for one affordable flat rate. By completely eliminating unexpected fees and limitations of use, Cellular South is addressing one of the most significant consumer concerns about their wireless service.

"More than 25 percent of Cellular South customers opt to eliminate their landline services due to our flat rate wireless plans and network reliability, compared to a national average of only 10 percent. Cellular South customers are able to depend on all aspects of their wireless service without being concerned about surprises on their bills," said Suzy Hays, senior vice president of marketing for Cellular South. "The True Unlimited Nationwide Plan bundles calls, texts, e-mails, photos and Internet service, while removing the traditional limits of out-of-network calling or texting. Since all services are truly unlimited nationwide, the plan eliminates overage charges so that the customer's bill is always the same each month."

The launch of the True Unlimited Nationwide Plan is part of a suite of new and innovative wireless solutions Cellular South has introduced to its customers this year. In addition to its best-in-class nationwide voice and data offerings, Cellular South is leading the nation in m-commerce solutions. Having recently completed the first multi-city WirelessWallet trial of its kind in the US, the company is slated to launch a commercial m-commerce offering in early 2008. Earlier this year, Cellular South was the first to introduce a new mobile payment service called Obopay, which enables customers to receive and send money directly from their wireless device to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

"Today's wireless services need to provide solutions for all aspects of life on-the-go. Every plan, product and application Cellular South offers makes it easy to enjoy a wireless life at an affordable price," said Jim Richmond, director of corporate communications for Cellular South. "We are excited to add the True Unlimited Nationwide Plan to our already extensive nationwide plan offerings and give our customers the value, satisfaction and quality they have come to expect from Cellular South."

Cellular South's True Unlimited Nationwide Plan is priced at a flat monthly rate of $79.99 for phones and $99.99 for PDAs/smartphones. To learn more about the True Unlimited Nationwide Plan, visit www.cellularsouth.com.
