    Just signed up with Cingular and bought a Treo. Here's a bizarre and frustrating problem that just started today.

    When I call up voice mail and try to enter my password, Cingular thinks I'm sometimes hitting a button twice when I am not. I discovered this when I tried to re-enter a password, and the voice called back to me "You entered 999733" when I had only entered "9973." It randomly doubled two keystrokes, but not any others. Also, when I follow the instruction to enter my area code and phone number, the voice cuts me off in the middle, telling me I have entered too many digits (i.e., more than 10) and to try again.

    When I check voice mail from a land line, there are no problems.

    So, clearly the Cingular voice mail system is hearing me push buttons more times than I am on my Treo.

    Tests:

    --Tried Keypad, screen dialing, screen dialing with stylus. Tried hitting the buttons as briefly as possible on each stroke. Tried leaving a long pause between each keystroke. Same result every time.

    --Created a button to dial the voice mail number, then the password as "extra digits." Same result whether automatic or manual.

    The weird thing is, I set up the voice mail from my Treo two days ago with no problem. The problems just started today.

    Any advice?

    Egg on my face.

    It was the speakerphone. The tones must have been echoing. I realized this when someone I was talking to said she could hear her voice echoing back at her when I used the speakerphone.

    Duh.
