Default Reverts to GSM

7290 w/Cingular. Unlimited Data Plan.

I've been up and running for several months and recently I have not been receiving my e-mails because the phone is dropping back to GSM and it stays there until I yank the battery. Then it boots up and gets back to GPRS and syncs all the e-mails not previously sent. This has happened to two of us in my office. I am in the Dallas, TX area.

Any ideas?

I've seen this a few times on Cingular, and the quick fix is remove the battery.

I saw this too in November, but haven't had any issues lately. Pulling the battery or turning off the network and back on always fixed the problem. Don't know if it had anything to do with network changes Cingular was implimenting.
