Default how will cingular screw up the 7100g?

Please Login to Remove!

sweet. this is the answer ive been looking for. i was about to bite on the mpx220. however with all the discourse about it, i was having 2nd thoughts. in comes the 7100g. im not new to BBs so i know what to expect. good build quality and rock solid OS.

my concerns:

1.will cingular disable the HTML browser like they did with the 7290 blackberry?

2. will u still have to pay the $49.99 ultd BB data, or will they let the $24.99 ultd data plan fly under their new febuary data plans?

If you haven't noticed it yet, Cinguar has *completely* adopted AT&T Business department. The Blackberry prices have already skyrocketed. We were getting our 7290's for $150 on a 2 year agreement, now they are trying to get us to buy them for $299 on a 2yr agreement. So, to answer your quetsions:

1) Probably

2) I'll almost guarantee you'll be paying the old data plan price. AFAIK the cost is $44.95 WITH a voice plan, $49.95 without

Can Cingular even get the 7100g to us? I went by my Cingular store to shop 7100g, which they did not have (as I expected), and which they knew nothing about (as I suspected would be the case). However, they told me they couldn't even order it for me, after they called Cingular's central sales center. (What?) The most I got from my local Cingular office was that I should order the 7100g from a third party vendor. Yet, there's bids for them on ebay for $500. What's going on?

Can I get one cheaper, without a network connection, and should I then walk it in to my store and get it connected there?

BTW, I've been messing with an MPX 220 for the last week, and it looks like a toy next to my 7290. The Berry looks and feels "industrial grade", compared to the smart phones, in my estimation.

actually, its on and off on Cingular's site and you can't get it sometimes. All orders seemed to have been placed on back order.

I recommend going to eAccess and ordeirng one, thats what I had to do. So far no crippling of any sort however I do have to pay the 49.99 blackberry data plan.
