well from what i read, the 8125 Pocket PC that i posted (silver one) has alot of stuff business people would like, including office, etc.

im leaning towards the 8125 because i dont think i can get wifi on the blackjack, but like i said im not sure.

You dont have to have the data plan with either to WiFi. I have the Dash and when i worked for Cingular worked with the 8125 as well. Niether of them require that data plan, even though some reps will tell you that you have to have it. The Wifi is a function of the phone, not a data plan. And my buddy has the Blackjack and you dont need the plan for those as well. Hope that helps.

I take it back. Just called my buddy and the blackjack does not have Wifi nor is it an option. So i would go with the 8125. Good phone.

Well if thats the case then either look for a phone on craigslist or ebay to use in the meantime and upgrade in July when the iphone comes is launched at Cingular. Or you can upgrade now and when the iphone is released you can call customer care, explain to them that your unsatisfied with the 8125, and ask if they will let you upgrade early. What the rep will do is look at your tenure with the company and the amount of money you spend a month with the company and they'll make a decision based on that information.

When the time comes that the iphone is released pm me and i will tell you how to upgrade early at one of the stores. In your situation i know a way around it. This does not work for everyone so dont ask.

Cingulars not going out of business. AT&T now owns 60% stock in Bellsouth, which owns Cingular, and are going to change the name back to AT&T by the end of the year. Cingular has twice as many subscribers than Sprint or T-Mobile and have AT&T and Bellsouth backing them so them going out of business is just not happening. Dude where do you hear this stuff cause youve been getting fed alot of bad information?

im really irritable right now. speak of the devil, this sprint job is blow . I was promised a schedule that would work with school. Ive been working the past week, and this week, from 8-8, just about, and Im somehow not even making overtime, for a 9/hr.

Im ready to find another job quick. I keep getting all these new acctivations, but since I cant make commision for a month, Im not getting a ****ing cent.

Worst. Job. Ever.

Dude stick with it. Dont be a puss and quit before the real dough starts coming in. And im not giving you man, just trying to get you to understand you shouldnt believe everything you hear from people. All you should worry about is waiting this month out, hustle when your getting paid commission on your activations and when you get the first commission check you'll realize that the pay makes up for the bs you'll get from that job. Another thing, I know that Cingular, Verizon, and Tmobile all have tuition reimbursement as long as you pass your classes. So if your going to college, which it sounds like you are, then you should ask about it. Tmobile and Cingular for instance will pay up to 15 grand a year for your classes at the end of each semester as long as you get a passing grade. That should help you out and if you do a good job at work, talk to people and get as many acts as you can, then your commission checks should be no less than a grand. And a grand is if your an average sales person. Plus, you have your hourly pay as well. I mean i make a decent amount hourly and i hustle so i can make some fat commission checks. A grand is just a minimum amount so you should aim for atleast 3 grand commission checks each month. Its all about how bad you want it and nothing else and if you have any questions about this kind of work let me know man and ill help you. Just pm me.

Cool, thanks for the words, sorry I blew up, you know I like you, I just have a pissy attitude
I don't want to be jobless for another 6 months, so ill defintally stick through it, and see how it goes.

Now, what IS true, is I found out apparently since my mom is a teacher, I'm supposed to be going to college for free. I'm so glad no one told me this 2 years ago. (Sprint doesn't have to know that )
But now that I found that out, I'm defintally gonna go to UT, get into dentistry or some other profession I really wanted
(Why does everyone, even strangers) enjoy telling me some BS about dentists have the highest suicide rate)
