Gregory Jackson, who is a Member of the Yahoo! BlackBerry Users' Group, has just posted this note he has received today from AT&T Mobility announcing a widespread BlackBerry address change from Cingular to AT&T

At AT&T, your business is important to us as we continue our efforts to raise the bar and enhance your service. This message is to inform you of an important upcoming change to your BlackBerry email address.

In October and November, all users with a mycingular.blackberry.net email address will be changed to a new att.blackberry. net email address. This change will occur automatically during this period.

Once your BlackBerry Internet Service email address has been changed, you will receive a confirmation message. Your BlackBerry email address account settings will be retained to the extent possible and any existing emails currently stored in your mycingular.blackber ry.net inbox will be accessible via your new att.blackberry. net inbox. Integration with an Internet Service Provider, IMAP or POP3 account, should not be impacted.

Email messages intended for your old name@mycingular. blackberry. net address will be automatically redirected to your new name@att.blackberry .net address until March 1, 2008. We encourage you to reach out to your important contacts to inform them of this upcoming change, as all messages sent to your old email address will no longer be automatically redirected to your new email address after March 1, 2008.

Thank you for choosing AT&T for your BlackBerry solution needs.

Any of you receiving these email messages as well?

  • I bet AT&T will still accept payments to Cingular

    I bet AT&T will still accept payments to Cingular way after the
    March 2008 date.

    WHY? WHY? WHY?
