Anyway, my suggestion is that you talk to a company rep at a store in person and demand that they waive their silly requirement, simply because it worked for me. Good luck!
Fredd,

I was talking with a Cingular rep in a Cingular store. He called someone who read him the rule without asking about any details on the customer.

They didn't sell me the phone. It's a fancy PDA, Sony Ericsson P900 that I bought in Hong Kong because it was unlocked.

I'll try again, probably via telephone first, and let 'ya know their response. In the meanwhile, I'll check with the wireless service affiliated with my employer, and see if I can use my PDA on "our" network.
