    OT: Cingular wireless

    Today I signed up with Cingular after all the mess that Verizon has done...Any opinions here?

    The guy gave me a cool flip phone for $30 which was 1/3 the price AND he added an additional 500 anytime rollover minutes per month to my acct. So I pay $49.99 a month for 700(included in plan)+500(bonus)=1200 anytime rollover minutes, 5000 night and weekend minutes(nights begin at 7pm). Does this sound like a deal? What kind of rep does Cingular have?

    I still have nationwide calling/no roaming fees etc but alot more minutes for the same price...All opinions are appreciated

    I had pretty good luck with Cingular.

    Right now I have Sprint because it works at the lake.

    Go online every month and confirm that your account has been posted PAID.. Keep proof of all payments.
    Cingular posted my payment to the wrong account and I had to prove it paid...and they claim they are on an automated posting system, which i guess means all payment s will be posted to the wrong account!!!!

    I just signed up with Cingular for the same deal you have.
    I have been with ATT for more than 5 years, went in to get a replacement phone and they quoted me prices ranging from $50 to $200! after 5 plus years of on time bill payments, loyalty means nothing in the cell phone industry, only NEW customers get it all.
    So far I have called Cingular twice. Each time I actually got to speak to a real human pretty quickly and each time they were more than pleasant and took care of the problem far so good!

    And they have the one thing that no other company(at least in the FL market) has... Techs to fix your phones when they break!

    OK here is my disclaimer now... I work for Cingular.. and guess what I do.. I fix the phones WHEN they break, cause well lets face it EVERYONE breaks a phone sometime!

    I knew I shouldn't have made that left turn in Albuquerque...

    Thumbs up

    I've been with Cingular/Bellsouth pretty much since '87 (yes 1987!) and have not had any problems go unresolved. Their customer service has always been professional and courteous. I just hope I haven't jinxed it by posting this!

    I need to check on that deal also.I have been with them for a long time. They only screwed my bill up a couple of times.

    Which store did you go to? I need nation wide and no roaming fees on mine. I'm paying close to 200 a month for 2 phones. I need get my bill down.
