I'm curious about this myself. I hate the "mycingular" part of the address, it's too long. I've been hoping they would just make it [email address]. Anybody hear anything about this?

I haven't seen anything yet. There's no telling until they get around to it. Given that they opted for *.mycingular.blackberry.net I'm not expecting that they'll have the wherewithall to select *.att.blackberry.net.

We'll probably end up with *.attyourworlddelivered.blackberry.net or something along those lines... ;)

IMHO, you really don't need to use that address in the first place, unless of course, you want tons more SPAM in your in box.

I subscribe to two breaking news paging services. Rather then carrying around pagers, I have the pages emailed to my BB on my .blackberry.net address. It's very handy and it's always been instant delivery. So, the address does come in handy.

Anyone know anything new on this? I really don't want to keep the @mycingular.blackberry.net addy anymore, would really love it if they would let us change.

You can always try deleting your blackberry.net email and creating a new one. Last I checked, the new ones were still mycingular.blackberry.net.

If it really bothers you then why not call at&t's BB support and ask them directly until they get this done? You're not actually giving out this address are you? You really should use it only for forwarding mail since there is no spam filtering on these email addresses.
