Default cingular tcp/ip and data plan question.. truly unlimited?

Please Login to Remove!

hey all,

I currently use t-mobile but will be moving to a place where they don't have service.. thinking about switching to cingular or verizon (would prefer to stick w/cingular for international roaming and SIM card ease)

I know a while ago, cingular would charge blackberry BIS users extra for accessing data on their handheld that wasn't email or internet browsing.. is this still the case?

I use gchat and newsclip extensively, and would hate to keep calling CS every month to dispute my bill, since this isn't any extra on t-mobile

any current cingular users want to chime in? thanks!

interesting.. this is different from how it was in the past though, right?

I thought I remember there being issues for people on cingular BIS with using applications other than email and the browser that use data
