Default Cingular Data Question

Please Login to Remove!

I have a quick question about the Cingular data plans that are available. I have a blackberry personal plan through cingular, and currently i'm paying $44.99/month unlimited. I was on their site today just looking around and I noticed that I can't even find a blackberry plan for that price. I noticed that they have a blackberry personal for $34.99/month. Does anyone know the specifics or have any idea why I'm paying for a plan that I can't seem to find. Thanks.

Looks like you are paying for BES vs BIS data plan. Two types of unlimited data plans.

So I should call them and switch it to the cheaper? I only use my BB for personal use, I just want to make sure I won't lose any features.

Yeah if that's the case I would. If you were using BES to get your corporate email then I'd say you were paying for the correct plan. Also as a fyi...cingular should also give you $34.99 - $5.00 = $29.99(BIS unlimited data plan) if you add a voice plan to your package.
