06.22.04 - 06.23.04 Text Messages & Court

Cell phone text messages could some day be as important in criminal trials as DNA evidence is now — and the Kobe Bryant (search) rape case might be the first major test. A private cell-phone text message exchange between the basketball star’s accuser and her ex-boyfriend has been ruled “relevant for discovery” in the case, and Judge Terry Ruckriegle (search) has ordered it released to the defense and prosecution.

The judge also told attorneys not to talk about the contents of the messages, which were subpoenaed by the defense last October.

06.18.04 - 06.19.04 Universities Using NotePage's Software

PageGate can be integrated with existing applications to add messaging or paging functionality to existing software. The most common use is to monitor networks and notify administrators of outages or network problem or security problems. This allows tech support and maintenance staff to work remotely about the campus. Messages can be sent from workstations on a network, or customers can send messages to agents via web pages or e-mail accounts. This software is modular and can be scaled to meet the size of the University.

06.16.04 - 06.17.04 Verizon E911 Issues

E911 is a hot issue with everyone from folks in the wireless sector to the federal government, so when a glitch hits emergency calls, it attracts attention. Verizon Wireless has been alerted to a "handful" of calls that have hiccupped during 911 calls placed by some of its subscribers.

The glitch has occurred when the caller location technology used by Verizon Wireless attempts to communicate with GPS to determine a caller's location. "The good news is, the calls remain fully connected," Verizon Wireless spokesman Jeffery Nelson tells news@2. "The issue is with a handful customers, who are in a Phase II capable area and have a GPS-enabled phone, that are in a location where it is difficult for the phone to connect with the satellite," he says. The customers are experiencing some voice-in and voice-out problems, which means the voice blanks a few seconds to find the satellite, but it doesn't lose the transmission. "No calls have been lost," Nelson says.

06.09.04 - 06.11.04 Nextel / Verizon War

The FCC may have put off any decision on what to do with in the jumbled 800 MHz band, but the move seems to have turned up the heat among opponents who remain at odds on the issue. The latest: Nextel Communications and Verizon Wireless continued to duke it out this week in hopes of swaying the FCC to their point of view. On Friday, Nextel offered up an additional two MHz of 800 MHz spectrum to give to public safety. In a letter to the FCC, Nextel senior vice president Robert Foosaner said the move would "nearly double the amount of 800 MHz band spectrum Nextel would contribute to public safety under the Consensus Plan to a total of 4.5 MHz -- a nearly 50 percent increase over today's public safety 800 MHZ allocation of 10 MHz."

Nextel reinforced its latest proposal with another follow-up letter to the commission yesterday. Verizon Wireless vehemently opposed Nextel's latest proposal in a biting letter of its own to the commission. "Nextel's new proposal is far more beneficial to Nextel than public safety," the letter said. The letter went on to say that Nextel's new proposal does nothing to ensure sufficient and legally sustainable funding for solving the public safety interference. "Nextel has not offered one additional cent to public safety," it says. (from Wireless Week)
