    If they are on the same type of network (IE GSM, Blah Blah Blah), then yes.

    Cingular and TMO both run on GSM networks...

    If i am not mistaken, you wouldn't be able to take a Verizon BB or a Sprint BB and use it on the Tmo or Cingular networks.

    Yup. Configuration is handled by the service books and not by the OS load or by manual keying.
