I have a T68i on AT&T and AT&T is sending all T68i owners a brand new T226, a so-so phone with NO bluetooth!


The reason, you ask? Because, AT&T is building on Cingular's (AT&T Wireless and Cingular are merging if you have not heard) 850mHz transmiters.


The phone in the article, as well as the T68i, P800, P900, and T630 are all 900/1800/1900 mHZ, with so-so reception off AT&T.


So, off I go, and many other T68i users, to T-Mobile with their extensize 1800 mHZ network.

    Wait a second. Cingular has an extensive 1900 network throughout the US. You can download the coverage map from their site, which I have. I put my Cingular card in the Z600 and was up and running within seconds.

    My understanding was that this only affected users mostly in the Northeast (plus all of Florida) among others. Also, I heard that you are not being forced to give up your phone; you may have spotty reception, though.
