Default Considering switch from Nextel to Cingular.

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everybody.

I've been using and loving my blackberry 7520 on the Nextel iDen service since may '05. This phone is probably my most favorite phone I've ever owned so far - and could not be happier with the data provisioning, with the instant push email, unlimited web browsing, and IM through Ramble.

However, there are many shortcomings with the phone that were bothering me - and with my family switching from Nextel to Cingular, I've been considering switching from the 7520 to the 8700c. However, I have a couple of questions.

With Nextel, it seems I've been enjoying *true* unlimited blackberry data - no caps on any of my throughput. Do Cingular users also have this luxury?

One of the most important questions - does AIM through Ramble work on the 8700c w/ Cingular?

Finally - how is the internet browsing? I played around with an 8700c in the Cingular store - but only through the Cingular-branded browser. Is this an open browser - could I access websites like I normally would through the unbranded browser on my 7520?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, but it costs $45 per month in addition to your phone plan.

Yes. As well as through Webmessenger, Verichat or IM+.

Browsing is great. If you have BIS through Cingular you will have two browsers - one WAP and one regular. If you go with a BES you will get a third browser through that service. With EDGE it is fast and clean, and you can access just about any website out there.
