Default T-mobile different from Cingular?

Please Login to Remove!

I just switched from Cingular to t-mobile. It seems like the service is really different. When using cingular, all I had to do was to go to the blackberry webclient site and set up my pin/imei and than have all the settings set up. For T-mobile it is on their own web site and there doesn't seem to be a lot of settings that you can change.

similarly I've been testing the push ability. It's taking a lot longer for my e-mails to get to me than normally would. I don't understand why??? I'm using my 9300 so if anyone has the 9500 or 9300 and you are on T-mobile, can you send me information on how to set up on 9300. Is it also because the shifting from Cingular to T-mobile service is screwing things up???

there is a big difference between the two:
Cingular stores your email. T-mo does not
T-mo should put your email in real time within 5 seconds but Cingular may take time.

Really??? My experience so far is that it takes a lot longer for t-mo to push my e-mail to me. Is it do to the porting of service? It's been about 24hours

I'd get my service books resent, then. (Actually, I'd delete my old service books then get them resent)

I've been happily using TMOB for my BlackBerrys for about a year and I don't see much of any delay with my blackberry.net address, about 3-10 min. on my other accounts, if that.

I think it does also, every since the BIS change. Before the upgrade I received a message in outlook about the same time as on the device. Now it arrives noticably later on the device. It's not a deal breaker kind of late but I do notice on level 1 messages when I'm at my PC.

What settings do you miss?

When you are saying "a lot longer," is it "takes 10 more minutes for emails to arrive" or "10 more seconds?" Can you be more specific? That would help.

Same here, been using TMo for about 6 months and barely any delay on my emails.
