Unfortunatly I am in the same situation as you. I have (had) MMode but Cingular refuses to do so much as add additional text messages to your plan without cancelling your former ATT wireless plan that we are all grandfathered into and creating a new Cingular plan oh and a new contract to go with it.
Did I mention they will not swap out your equipment like ATT would, they will not let you lower your plan the way ATT would and they will not let you add services the way ATT would.... fine but here's the kicker. THEY WILL NOT LET YOU OUT OF YOUR CONTRACT EARLY EITHER
They can't have their cake and eat it too. I'm trying to go back to TMobile with LPN but that is going to be a nightmare on top of that my 7100t that runs unlocked on Cingular with a grandfather'ed ATT account just got ERROR 365 (No fix available). I swear someone at Cingular pushed a virus to cause this problem so that I'd have to do something. Anyway I'm on my second 7100T unlocked phone (thanks EBAY) and I have NOOOOO Internet still even though I pay for Mmode.
Anyone know some good lawyers, this would only be worth it to get a 100 people together to file a joint lawsuit but I'm telling you this would be BIG! I know they are going against the orginal ATT contract.
Perhaps a webform is in order for complaining ATT people to input their contact info? I had a chuckle yesturday in the grocery store line someone was complaining on their broken Cell phone about this exact thing.
Cell Phone Communists I tell you!

Someone told me that I might be able to subscribe to a non-blackberry data plan and rig the Blackberry to browse/collect email another way. I'm just looking for web client ability.
