>As of February 18, 2008, cellular telephone companies will not be required to provide analog service. Some users of OnStar in-vehicle communications service will be affected as OnStar has indicated it will not support analog systems after December 31, 2007.
>OnStar-equipped vehicles have one of three types of equipment: analog-only, analog/digital-ready, and dual-mode (analog and digital). OnStar advises that analog-only equipped vehicles (generally, cars older than 2003 models) cannot be upgraded and that OnStar service in such vehicles will not work after December 31, 2007. Analog/digital-ready equipped vehicles must be upgraded in order to work after December 31, 2007. (Dual-mode equipped vehicles will continue to work after December 31, 2007.)
>To determine the type of OnStar equipment in your vehicle and whether your OnStar service will work after December 31, 2007, contact OnStar. You can contact OnStar by pressing the blue OnStar button in your vehicle, calling OnStar toll-free at 1-866-579-7726 (have your OnStar account number or your vehicle identification number available), or visiting OnStar's Web site at https://myonstar.com/adt.os. Enter your vehicle identification number to determine if the transition affects your vehicle.
