I've been having a problem since yesterday, where the Blackberry is not
receiving e-mail messages, and only reads "GSM", instead of "GPRS". Is
this completely a carrier problem, or does anyone know any hints that
may "reset" a problem?

Well, I'm going to try after hours support tonight, and if not, call in
tomorrow. It briefly worked today, but then is mostly going back to
GSM only.

I hope they figure this out. I've been a very happy customer of
Cingular, and I'm glad I switched to them. I just wish they had the
24x7 customer service like AT&T did. That is the only disadvantage of
the merger I have noticed. The big advantage of Cingular to me is
their coverage is great in my area.

I too had the exact same problem. I called late last night and got through
to customer service. The agent told me that they are not able to offer
Blackberry service after hours and on Sunday and that I would have to call
back on Monday morning. I explained that I was leaving for Washington, DC
early Monday morning and had to fix the problem before I left on Monday.

Early Sunday morning I got a phone call from Cingular Customer Service (They
contacted a Blackberry Specialist on his day off) and they told me that they
had a network problem. The agent verified all of my settings and told me
that she would call me back to make sure that I had service. She didn't
even have to call back because I had service in less than a half hour. I
got an email from her thanking me for being patient.

I follow this newsgroup and all I hear is complaining. I switched from
Verizon to Cingular about 3 months ago and have nothing but praise for
Cingular Customer Service. They really went out of their way for me.

PS. My problem is solved and I hope your problem receiving email is also
