    Well, I made a serial cable for Treo 650. (I will post later)

    And all efforts we did before at this forum worked fine. (Changing MSL, PRL ...)

    But I cannot make a call to verizon CS. So, I didnot register yet.

    Tomorrow, I will call to verizon CS and try to active treo 650.

    Why not try and activate the ESN online?

    You are the best mines...definitely keep us tuned in regarding to your cable.

    I think they sort of changed the ESN activation online...somtimes it just gives you a link to call the CS number when you put in a questionable ESN number.

    Hey moderators, can we merge all of the Verizon converge 650s into one thread?

    Because Verizon changed not to allow activate non verizon phone in the web.

    thanks for the update but what about the cable? I tried looking all over the internet for a compatible cable. Did you MacGyver the cable?

    About the cable...

    According to PalmOne, Treo 650 used same multi-port as Tunsgten T5.

    I downloaded PDF files from PalmOne and read about multi connector.
    Multi connector has RX/TX Serial pins, but the output is 3.3V level. Not regular RS-232C revel.

    There are several approaches to convert regular RS-232C to 3.3V TTL level. Using "Line Driver Chip". If you google "Dreamcast Serial cable", you can find many information. DreamCast Serial output uses same 3.3V level.

    However, I choose more fast way.

    1) Bought Tungsten T5 USB/HotSync/Charging cable at eaby around 10$.
    2) Got FutureDial Mobile Phone Data Cable for LG 1200, VX6000 Model (Cable #19) at Radio Shack around 20$
    3) Opened the dongle in the middle of FutureDial cable, and I checked the Chip. They used Prolific PL2303 USB to RS-232 Bridge, and line driver level is 3.3V WOW!
    4) Disassembled the Tungsten T5 cable and FutureDial Connector, and Connected TX, RX, GND 3 pins.
    5) Installed Future Dial USB2Serial Driver and run PST software.

    Rock & Roll~

    PS) I will post more details about the cable.

    Mines, you can make some good money making those cables for us future converters. Or would you mind "donating" yours for all to use.

    If you can take some photos and do a step by step. I can make a downloadable PDF for people to use..it pays to be in the graphics business. Let me know.

    wow what about data! good to go?

    also if you hard reset the phone, its not going to clear all the hacked data/info for it work on verizon is it? cuz we know the 650 and hard resets love each other till you can find the just right combo.

    wahli,
    Just like the converted Treo 600, if you hard reset, the hacked info is not deleted. I believe the 650 will have the same result.

    Mines, awesome work!! I'll get to that as soon as you post how to hack the cable. Here's my question. I've been gathering all the software (bitPIM, PST etc....) software. I've been readin the thread on how to convert the Sprint T600 to Verizon in this thread (http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...3&page=1&pp=20). Is that how you converted the Sprint T650 to Verizon? Or are there some minor changes, because I was going to follow that thread to convert it.

    Thanks!!

    P.S - You can't use the supplied USB hotsync cable and use a Serial port to USB adapter?

    Sorry if I am redundant but do we follow the same instructions as the link above states to get the T650 to work on verizon?
