    Be careful before you use unlockcellular.com to unlock a Treo 650. What they don't tell you is there is no customer support to help you and you better be a technical expert. I paid their $25 fee and the unlock code they sent me didn't work and then they just sent me a bunch of nasty messages from the sales department when I complained. They kept my money and I have no recourse since I paid them through paypal

    DFC,

    Sorry you had a bad experience. I used them and it worked like a charm. I had to wait a bit to get the codes. I emailed them asking for the codes once and he replied with it. All in all the wait was about 1hour 20 minutes. Maybe this varies. Neverhtheless, I did get a response.

    I'll agree that the process can be a bit worrysome. But, if you follow thier directions to the "T" then it does in fact work.

    I used unlockcellular.com and had no problem. Follow the directions and your phone will be unlocked in under 5 minutes.

    What does unlocking the treo do for you exactly? (obviously new to the treo world!)

    Unlocking the Treo (or any GSM phone) means it can be used on any GSM network worldwide by simply popping in an active SIM card.

    If you are on Cingular for example you can take a T-mobile SIM card and place it in your phone and you are now on the T-mobile network. If you travel internationally like I do, when you arrive in the new country you can use a local providers SIM card and avoid international roaming fee's bikled to you by your US provider.

    For me I use the international SIM cards and am happy I am not tied to Cingular with my phone. I can drop them at any time and go with T-mobile if I want to and do not need to buy another phone.

    The other thing with unlocked phones is that you can keep a spare in case something goes wrong or if perhaps you need a non-camera phone temporarily.
