Hey! I just contacted Cingular, and I wa told is my display was showing "gprs" in lowercase, then I was not getting charged for my data transfer, which was include using the Internet or getting E-mails. When it shows "GPRS" in uppercase then you are using the full data transfer service. Thus, I am just using the Gprs link to connect to thier voice data service and am not being charged for it. I has the lady also check if I had been charged for anything extra, and she said I had not been charged for any extra data transfer, and I have been using the phone for about 3 days now. So next time you answer a question, please et your information right.
