GSM 900/1800/1900 phone actually does work but data with data problems it will just say cingular extended no voice mail indicator worse service but u can get signal

Exactly - because you're roaming - you're not on Cingular's network at all. You need GSM 850 to actually be on Cingular's network (outside of NY and CA). Cingular can't afford to offer such generous roaming policies forever. Before too long, you'll be charged for that kind of roaming.
