OnStar® Analog Service
Since it was launched in 1996, OnStar has relied on an analog wireless network to provide communication to and from OnStar-equipped vehicles. As part of an industry wide change in the North American wireless telecommunications industry, wireless carriers are transitioning to digital technology and will no longer support the analog wireless network beginning early 2008.

Effective January 1, 2008, OnStar service in the United States and Canada will be available only through vehicles that are capable of operating on the digital network.

TIP: Refer to Bulletin 05-08-46-006G for information about upgrading certain vehicles to digital service. Details were covered in the November 2006 TechLink, which is available in the Archives of theTechLink website.
