    Question 1: Insurance

    Two different reps at a local Cingular store told me that they do not offer equipment protection for the Treo. (One of the reps told me that they would sell it to me, but that any replacement would not be a Treo).

    Is that so? If it is, what do people do about this? (I'm currently a Sprint customer and have used my insurance to get replacements twice).


    Question 2: International data roaming

    The two reps also told me it's possible to get a flat rate data roaming for international data service. One told me it's $20/month, the other told me its $30/month. I can't seem to find it listed on the Cingular web site anywhere.

    Anyone here have any experience about this?

    Cingular's web site also says that the Treo is inelible for insurance as of 12/15/2005.

    Update:

    I learned today that Cingular does *not* offer international data packages for the Treo, only for the BlackBerry. For the Treo, data is 1.8 cents/per kb. If you get 25 emails a day (avg 10kb) and do no web browsing, the cost would be about $20-25 per week.

    Meanwhile, BB users get unlimited international data for about $25/month. Which could be yet another reason Treos are not well supported by corporate IT departments.

    shouldn't this be in the US GSM section?
