    I've been using a Verizon Treo 600 (CMDA) for about a year now, and am pretty happy with the whole treo concept.

    I'll be deploying to Iraq in about 4 months, and I think I need a tri or quad band GSM phone. Is the GSM version of the Treo up to it?

    What carrier will offer the best "from-over-seas" rates?

    I'm really shooting in the dark here, so any help you can give would be great.

    Military Regulation prohib the transportation of Cell phone, or un-regulated Communication device, by it personl into other countries.

    When I deployed to Kosovo, and Afghan, they told us in our we were not allow to take, or use our cell phones.

    In any combat zone, all communcation is most be secure, Use a DSNVT LOL

    You mean a pair of tin cans and a wire? DVNT realy sucks.

    As to the regulation, the prohibition on cell phones is being enforced about as strictly as the Army's fornication laws.

    Cell phones are open season.

    So, will the 650 GSM work in Iraq?

    Thanks for the tip, Pretender. Did you get the phone here (USA) and take it there (Iraq)? Do you have service thru a local company, or a US carrier?

    MFizzel: With out getting into details, and with no pledge of accuracy, the Army has a pretty strict "moral" code as relates to relationships. The most talked about in recent years is the act, and condition of homosexuality. There are many many others. The Army (and other military services) are perhaps the last place on earth where adultry is considered a crime. There was a time when commiting adultry would either get you sent to levenworth, or kicked out. While I am a dedicated christian, and support moral behavior as relates to my christian ethos, I wish they would either enforce the "sex" regs, or update them.

    Unless a soldier steps of the plane in Iraq, and immediatly sticks his head in the nearest sand dune, he can't help but notice the excess of gratuitious sex that takes place between service members while deployed. Unfortunatly, marital status does not seem to dissuade anyone.

    not a problem, man. the phone was purchased unlocked with a sim purchased in iraq.

    as far as the "moral" code goes, the military has the most backwards outlook when it comes to sex. without getting on my soapbox i'll just say that unless you're a straight, single male, everyone else is inferior.
