Whatever you do, don't recharge your phone. If you do, when it rings next and you answer it, tarantula spiders will crawl out of the screen.

You signed up for one of the worst plans- the one that charges your callers $50 to leave a voicemail.

Well this thread has been productive. Why don't you call Cingular or go to a Cingular store and find out? Well screw the Cingular store. They always tell you to "call customer service" if it's about anything other than buying a new phone.

I have T-mobile and everytime I listen to a voicemail message and end the call I get a blank text message with just the date and time and some funky "From:" like 0. I've been too lazy to call T-mobile and find out what the problem is.... oh, nevermind, call Cingular... carry on....

thanks y2k falcon.
