Quick Cingular VM question...

Just swithced two lines from T-Mobile to Cingular and having issues. I will post the full expereince on another post, but had a quick question for Congular people.

On both lines we cannot access our VM to listen to messages we have received. The passwords are not working, even the original default passowrd was not working. Anyone have a suggestion as to what I cna tell Cingular Tech Support next time I speak with them. After spening over 2 hours on the phone, they said they would have to find someone highe rup to help troubleshoot the problem. Any info you might have woudl be appreciated.

Don't buy off the net!

In my opinion i would recommend not buying a cell phone off the net, because you are going to start having the problems that some of these people are talking about.

GO to a physical store Agent/Dealer/Company store, get everything in writing and everything activated that day. That way if anything goes wrong you have somewhere to go to talk to someone's face not someone's voice or their email. And you know you will get a response right then, not a few days later, and also you will receive your merchandise right then, now 2 weeks later!

Cingular v. T-Mobile network

I have been a T-Mobile customer for a little over 1 year. Service has been fairly good for the most part and my rate plan is great...$99.00 for 5000 anytime,anywhere minutes, no roaming charges or LD. Cingular also has some great new plans, which I could piggyback my wife's phone to and expense both off for work, saving me $$$. The question is, how does the Cingular GSM network compare to the T-Mobile network? Some Cingular rep at a mall Kiosk tried to tell me the Cingular GSM network wa smuch larger than the T-Mobile network, but I was very skeptical. I am based in Atlanta, and travel all over the east coast for business and out west (i.e Vegas) 3-4 times per year. My only complaints with T-Mobile have been poor reception near the beach...

Text Messaging Issue

I was wondering if anyone else has a problem text messaging certain numbers with Cingular. I have a V400 phone and I was trying to text my friend who has a T-Mobile phone with a 347 area code (NYC). I keep getting a message that says "Unidentified Number...etc". I know it's the right number because he can text me and we have no problem calling each other. It's just the outgoing texts on my end. I can also text him with no problem from my AT&T phone...any ideas??

Siemens A56i

Hey everyone. I had a visitor the other day, and she was from Siemens. She was giving us the specs for the revised A56i, and it will have PTT compatibility when its rolled out by Cingular. We are expecting the A56i in our market at the beginning of February. It will keep the revised look of the A56 though.

Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.

This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.

We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.

This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.

There are lot of different permutations of this scam.


You will receive a message on your answering machine or your pager, which
asks you to call a number beginning with area cod...
