    I travel to US with work and when i get to US my iPhone automatically chnages to AT&T, however i need to be able to change it to Cingular in order for me to make calls and send texts.

    Is there a way to manually switch to Cingular?:)


    Love the iPhone!!!

    How long ago were you distinguishing Cingular from AT&T? The acquisition of Cingular by AT&T was completed in October 2004. And the merger of the networks followed somewhat later.

    I have a Cingular branded BlackBerry issued to me by my employer (older model), and it shows AT&T as the network on the screen when it is operating.

    Well, wherever you are, if you're roaming, you can choose the network in Settings -> Carrier.

    At least, I can.
