Cingular 8525: Direct Push works with GPRS/EDGE, but NOT UMTS
I have an older MediaWorks $20 plan that connects to the wap.cingular server. (I thought I used to connect to isp.cingular with an older phone, but it doesn't let me connect now.)
I'm happy that Direct Push works with my "cheaper" data plan...in fact, I receive my exchange email on my phone faster than it'll show up in my Outlook Inbox. But it's annoying to lose Direct Push when I travel to an area with UMTS...I must manually send/receive to retrieve new messages. I don't want to call Cingular about the "problem) because I suspect they might try to force me to upgrade to a more pricey data plan (simply because I have a "PDA phone."
