    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.

    thats 100% true I had the same problem I just switched fully to cingular cause the razr is only 100 bucks xmas special I work at fedex right we get discounts from cingular and was getting them from att but I been waiting since the 17th of this month to get my phone guess what some jerk did in shipping to my order sent it by usps and when you check the order status on cingulars site the tracking # is actually a conformation # for the post office so i have no way of tracking my stuff and it getting mighty close to xmas I dont think I will have my phone till after then cingular customer service sucks and The part you said about the att phones not being able to work on cingular towers is horse shyt cingular made new sim cards over a year ago that wont let any gsm phones use them(the cards) to make att customers switch over and use their plans and service (trust me I unlocked my att nokias and tried) and cingular towers are the same as everyone elses towers that use gsm if not your phone couldnt roam using a tmobile tower

    When you say "old", is it over 1 year old? If it's less than a year old it is still covered under the manufacturers warranty, as long as it does not have physical or liquid damage.

    for my information, your nokias were 32k sims right? i think we were talking about this before. i would hate for someone to read your post and be misled to believe that cingular chips won't work in unlocked phones.

    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!

    The following phones are not compatible with Cingular 3G SIM Cards.

    Phone Make/Model Symptom-
    LG 1400, 1400i, C2000, F7200, F9100, F9200:
    The customer may state that the Message Icon does not appear when they have a voicemail.

    Nokia 3220: The error message "Phone Restricted" appears, and the user cannot place or receive any phone calls.
