    Upgraded to a MPx220 recently and the Cing rep pushed giving me a new
    SIMS card saying that it would improve the phone's performace. Of
    course he couldn't elaborate on what he meant by this so I'm wondering
    if anyone has any insight on why Cingular would be pushing new SIMS
    cards. BTW I did take it.

    Likely its a 64 K instead of a 32K card which with an ENS phone more
    efficiently uses both the AT&T Wireless network and the Cingular
    Network, until such time as they ever are really integrated.

    Re: "New" SIMS card from Cingular

    I was in a store today getting a new phone, and a customer was there complaining about an echo that started about a month ago. The rep said that older sim cards started to do this, and gave him a new one.

    Not sure how it's related, but it seemed to satisfy the customer.

    Are you on an old AT&T rate plan or did you have to migrate to a Cingular
    plan? Just curious.

    Thanks.

    I've been with Cingular since '01 and using the same SIMS card.

    I am not sure, but I believe the new sim cards, like the old AT&T sim
    cards, will work on both the 850 Mhz and 1900 Mhz former ATTWS system
    and the Cingular/T-Mobile 1900 Mhz systems. Yes...It is better! I
    still don't believe it will give you the ability to choose the system
    manually like the old ATTWS sims will, but I recently got one, and was
    able to get on AT&T's old system (Cingular Blue System) from my home
    where there is NO Cingular/T-Mobile service.

    an old story. Its over 4 months that 64K sims could do that.

    I was told the same thing at a Cingular store. Rep sounded very
    knowledgable, so I tend to believe him. He didn't know exactly why either
    but said it would reduce some "bugginess" of early released Treo 650's and
    600's (which I was looking at).
    It was called the Axalto (sp.).
    Plus, I think it stored alot more #'s.

    I've had several Cingular store employees and a CS person mention that
    Cingular just released new SIMs within the past month. They look the
    same as the older 64k but they are supposed to have been changed.
