Default 7100t with BES on Cingular network

Please Login to Remove!

I have searched the forums and determined I can use my 7100t on Cingular's network, but my company uses the BES for data. T-Mobile's voice coverage is terrible, so I would like to switch to Cingular but don't know what I need to do for the data service. Does anyone know what I will need to change so my data service will work once I switch to Cingular?

1) Unlock the 7100t so that it will work with Cingular
2) Get a Cingular SIM card, with the BlackBerry data plan activated.
3) Put the Cingular SIM card in.

Away you go!

how does one 'unlock' the 7100T if T-Mobile say that the 90 day period has expired so they say they can't unlock it?

90 days is the number of days that you have to be in good standing with TMO in order to request the phone to be unlocked. just give their customer service number a call and ask to have your phone unlocked.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.
