If you use cingular, recommend you don't use website for this.  I called,
setup an unlimited plan for 89.99, and later received a bill for $2800.  I
wouldn't have wanted to try to get my bill corrected if I had selected the
plans on the website.  I had the phone reps name and everything to tell them
they had made a mistake.

Sprint is better for this.  IIRC, they don't charge extra for ISP stuff.

Cingular acquired AT&T Wireless, so I think you should be looking on the
Cingular site.  But be aware that Cingular is trying to get rid of
technology that AT&T Wireless used.  You'll probably need to switch to a
Cingular plan and new phone(s) to be able to use any advanced
options.  (Personally I'm going to switch to a different provider.)
