    if i switch to cingular for the new 8800 will i lose my xxx@sprint.blackberry.net do you get xxx@cingular.blackberry.net

    or do you have to pick a new blackberry internet address for every carrier switch?

    Yes you will need to get that carriers email address.

    You are automatically given a new one based on your carrier. That's what happened to me when I switched from 7520 Nextel to my T-Mobile 8100, eventhough I kept the same number.

    so the email adress is unique to the carrier not to blackberry

    That's probably the #1 reason why the yourname@carrier.blackberry.net should never be used to send emails or in other words should always be invisible to your contacts as it's only a temp path for your personal email accounts.

    Whenever you switched carriers, you'll get a new BB address for that carrier. You can always try to get the same user name so the only difference in the email address is the carrier name. Sometimes, your username may have already been taken by someone before you.
