my bad i meant triband none 850 like tmobile phone for instance on cingulars network youll have reception problems and problems with voice and data. ...

I'm still not following. "triband none 850" doesn't make much sense, but it sounds like you're talking about a tri-band GSM phone with no GSM 850 - in other words, a GSM 900/1800/1900 phone. Such a phone would have no service on Cingular's network in most parts of the country.

...Cingular sent us and email today saying they have roamer agreements overseas but that it may be LIMITED i thought it was kind of funny it seemed like there trying to stress that point. ...

If Cingular says their international service will be limited, they could be referring to their GSM 850/1800/1900 phones. Since those phones only have GSM 1800 for overseas roaming, and not the older, more widespread GSM 900, yes, the overseas roaming options will be somewhat limited.
