I posted this question in July '08 and have never ceased looking for the answer. What I've come up with is this: I had a Treo 750 and when I placed the phone on vibrate, the sound never came through. The minute I switched to a Blackberry, exact same AT&T Pay As You Go Plan, that changed.
On the Curve 8320, when I place it on vibrate, the annoying pay as you go ding always comes through. This tells me that it is the phone, not AT&T, that is causing the ding.
So, if the Palm (Treo 750) people can eliminate the ding when the phone is on vibrate, why can't the Blackberry techs?

I am to be penalized because I pay less? Well, I paid cash for my phone, bought it unlocked on eBay (RIM benefited from this sale). I pay for 3 AT&T Pay As You Go plans, myself, my husband, my step-son. I pay AT&T over $100 a month for a business landline. So, I'm certainly not cheating AT&T out of any money. I am a responsible 56 year old woman. It seems that if I choose to turn off the alert beep, that should be my perogative as an AT&T customer. I shouldn't be penalized because I am frugal, manage my money well, and choose not to bind myself to a long term contract.
But, that's just the way I feel about it.
