My review is on Cingular. I bought a phone w/service and was told I could return for full refund and only charged for any air time used. THEY LIE. THE PHONE DID NOT WORK IN MY AREA AND I CANCELLED THE NEXT DAY. THEY ARE CHARGING ME FOR ACTIVATION even though it never worked in my area. If you are uncertain you will keep the phone and service, DON'T BUY from Cingular. Amazon will also do nothing to reimburse.
I see others have experienced deception from Cingular too.
I tried to order the 7280 Blackberry(Cingular) 3 times. Twice for myself and once for my wife(I know she has good credit). Each time I was told the order was cancelled for additional credit information. Upon contacting Cingular I was told that a $49 deposit was required and Amazon could not collect the deposit; therefore the order couldn't be completed. From what I can figure out, Cingular has no intention of honoring this offer. So, give it a shot; but as for me(a ex-longtime Cingular customer) I'd look for other options. My new order for the 7280 Blackberry thru another carrier will arrive this week.
Unfortunately for the people of Jacksonville, IL 62650 can not order Blackberry 7280 Cingular from Amazon. When I check with availability zip code. It says "Sorry! This product is not available for Jacksonville, IL". However, Blackberry 7280 Cingular is working excellent in Jacksonville, IL 62650. Amazon's discrimination toward people of zip code 62650. Anyway, I sought other business to ordered Blackberry 7280 and I loves it.
