I'm currently getting a Data Connection Refused error, and I imagen that is due to something on Cingular's end <or the fact that I haven't gotten the BlackBerry package as of yet>
What I'm wondering is what, if anything, would be the difference of me getting the Cingular software package vs the T-Mobile package.
I have noticed the web browser is gone, but other than that, is there anything else that is majorly different that I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance!
Before I got a Berry with a phone, I was an AT&T Customer. I was given a T-Mobel Berry with a phone, and got the unlock code from T-Mobile (long since gone!), and put it onto my AT&T account. This was just before the AT&T/Cingular merger.
The Berry and phone worked fine, but after the merger service began to degrade. Finally, the service got really bad, and the berry went south, so I went and got a new 7100 and got my account moved from AT&T to Cingular (a 6 month ordeal I wouldn't wish on anyone!).
Anyway, I did this through an independant dealer who told me that the reason the phone service on my old Berry was so bad was because while AT&T used the same carrier frequency as T-Mobile, Cingular did not, and they were slowly dismantling that infrastructure.
Maybe he was giving me a line, but he had no reason to - I wasn't going to go to another store, and I had to get a new device.
So, for what it's worth.....
