    Not in California.

    And Cingular is so screwed up that they are selling the Treo 270 and the
    Treo 600 for the same price of $499! But in Idaho, the Treo 270 is $199.

    They are seriously messed up at Cingular.

    Updated cingular site.

    In the "Bring your number to cingular" section,
    they now have the ability to see if you can port your local number
    over to cingular.
    Just enter the number in question, and your billing zip,
    and it will tell you if you can port the number.

    They also seem to be openly accepting gait phones on most plans now.
    They have a GAIT and GSM only maps for superhome and
    superhome family talk plans.
    They haven't got the map up for prepaid yet.
    I wonder if they will have a prepaid map for a GAIT phone also?
    :-)
    Or possibly a map for a prepaid TDMA phone and prepaid GSM phone.

    They also have a section which I think is new.
    (at least I haven't noticed it before)
    They now have a special offers section under "rate plans".
    It has stuff like 500 free rollover minutes for signing up.... (on an on)

    GSM is not eligible for pre-paid yet, is what they keep telling me. I've
    tried several times to move my account, mainly to try there coverage and
    system.
    So I imagine GAIT would also not be eligible, but you might be able to
    activate the TDMA portion if you didn't tell them all the information, but I
    don't know if the phone works without a SIM and I'm not patient enough to
    try it.

    I just checked and they have got their map up for prepaid.
    It's just the same old TDMA map that they already had.

    I guess that the 7 to 7 peak/off peak split is the only thing
    we are going to be getting for now. :-/

    Correct.
    And they are not available in the DCS system either.

    The stuff is available to the heart of cingular's customer base.
    That being the eastern 800mhz system.

    I haven't had any problems with them myself.
    Around here, they don't even offer service where they only
    have 1900mhz coverage.
    The 1900Mhz coverage they have along the main roads outside
    of the primary service area is just a side benefit the users
    when they travel out of the 800mhz service area.

    So the DSC 1.9Ghz only system and California's 1.9Ghz only system
    isn't their idea of a primary market.
    It is just something they are stuck with.

    has anyone tried entering their current Cingular number to see what it
    says? It told me my number isn't able to be used on their system.
    You'd think that they would have a better message than that...maybe
    something like "hey doofus, you're already a Cingular customer...quit
    playing around".

    "so it can't be used with a new Cingular account." I guess that would
    make sense, I can't take my phone number to a *NEW* Cingular account.
    What's wrong with that statement?

    Why can't you? Unless you are still under contract?

    Because even if you sign up with a new contract, it will be linked to
    the current account.
