If your phone says just GSM, your phone cannot connect to any data network, so it can't receive email, surf the web, etc. You need at least GPRS or preferrably EDGE.
Most, if not all, of Cingular's native network has at least GPRS. You are probably roaming onto a network that doesn't support data.
As long as this problem only occurs when you are in certain areas, there's nothing wrong with your phone and I doubt there's anything you can do about it.
You might try turning Wireless off and on again to make your phone try again to connect to a data network.
