Hey it could have been worse: Cingular could have bought ATT and simply turned off Blue towers until they got converted... Your contract was with ATT, NOT Cingular. It so happens that Cingular bought ATTs assets, but they were nice enough to keep your phone on.
The no-pay method is the damn dumbest thing I have ever... The only thing it does is bring in the collection agency and lower your credit score. When you buy a house in 5 years it'd be pretty dumb to have horrible credit over a $55 non-payment on a cell phone don't you think? Or maybe you like high interest rates on credit cards?
Small claims court... 8 hours at the courthouse to get $55... how much money would you have made working during that time?

my suncom plan was 60 bucks. they told me that my plan would stay the same. cingular says the plan costs 80 bucks. i told them that i coul dshow them my bill and show them. which i did. and they still refuse to offer what i was on before them. so i called the better business bureau and they are already into an investigation of contract situations. hopefully they get it straight

basicly.. the only reason at&t customers would feel "screwed" is them HAVING to switch to cingular if they want to update their plans or get a new phone. mostly plan issue or adding an additional line. a new phone although, you can always purchase any gsm phone and unlock it

This is unethical behavior.
My phone broke today. It is an old AT&T CDMA phone. So I have to switch to a new Cingular contract to get it replaced. I don't want to do this, because I don't want to get into another $150 cancellation fee contract.
But I can't cancel my current contract without paying $150. So, since they won't provide me with service (they won't let me buy a new phone, they won't repair my phone) they should let me cancel without the $150. But they won't.

i actually noticed that you put pics up with the different sims. very cool! the orange (new 64k) sims should be the standards today. the older phones using 32k will probably not accept a new 64k sim.
but all current gsm phones that are unlocked should take your sim if you're a current customer.
hit a reply if you disagree or have more to add!
