I support BB's and as far as I know, Cingular does not have two different data plans.
I checked on their Web site, but it's unclear what's really available. They have a section titled "BlackBerry Data Access
" that "may not
be used with BlackBerry Enterprise Server to access corporate e-mail", but there's no link or price for it.
There's "Blackberry Personal Plan - Unlimited
" which "May be used with BlackBerry Enterprise Server to access corporate email' for $34.99/Month.
There are also two other data plans, but they're $40 and $50 per moth each, and I don't see what they give you that the $35 unlimited plan doesn't give you!
All that said, whenever you're getting a BlackBerry that's connecting to your corporate email, or if you intend to use a BES service provider, you should make sure you tell them you need an Enterprise data plan.
