Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
isp.cingular is for a Feature called Tethering only. It may catch up with you that you are using an incorrect APN and do not have the correct feature on your account to enable use. Therefore you may end up with charges @ .01/KB used.
wap.cingular is the default APN for Device Browsers and Unlimited Data Plans. usage under this APN when you have an Unlimited Data Plan will not be billed extra.
Ok... So I got two replies with two different answers... That's pretty much what I got when I asked on CrackBerry as well. The AT&T online chat reps don't know the answer and I've not been able to get through to the phone reps within the 20 minutes I have for lunch.
Not to be rude to the two users that replied, but can an AT&T rep chime in here and give me a straight answer?
This is a customer forum and AT&T reps will not answer here. Wabbit is correct in this case. wap.cingular is the default APN for the AT&T data network. isp.cingular is used for tethering and modem use only. Additional charges may result without correct provisioning on the account.
"forums.wireless.att.com" with a title of "Wireless Forums from AT&T" doesn't exactly sound like a community forum. If I had known it was, I wouldn't have bothered registering and asking the question as I've already got conflicting info from end-users. Again, no disrespect intended, but I am only intersted in an answer directly from AT&T as this is my money on the line. They sold me an "Unlimited" data plan and I've got applications that only work through isp.cingular, so if they intend to force me to upgrade to a tethering plan to use isp.cingular from my phone then I'm going to drop them for lying about what I can do with my "unlimited" plan.
Call 611 from your phone and ask them. As customers, we usually can sort out the right answer. I usually place more credence on users here with more posts than I and/or demontrate a track record of having the right answers.
If you read the forum guidelines : http://forums.wireless.att.com/cng/board/message?board.id=announcements&message.id=1
The first few lines directly spell out that we are customers here:

HMMMM I thoutght isp.cingular was used originally before wap.cingular was used. According to the rep I spoke to the additional billing issues were corrected a while ago.
