I had no trouble sending or receiving e-mail until yesterday using versamail that came with the phone. First I was told the servers were down, no problem with my service. Today, after trying to send e-mail and getting an error message "530 authentication required" I called Cingular and got a tier 2 person who said that the 650 will not use any media plans, that it needed a PDA connect plan which of course costs more. I know there has been commentary on this topic spread throughout other threads but I wanted to begin one here on this Cingular topic specifically. I can send e-mail using messaging that also came with the phone.

What plans are you using on your 650 GSM phone and having no problems sending e-mail with versamail

Thanks for your help!!
