    So, what's up with AT&T? They have totally failed in providing any palm operated device though we have seen several generations of devices fly by. I know we can get a Treo working with AT&T, but at what price? One would have to buy a Treo without activation (about $600+) then buy another cheapo phone ($60 to$120) just to get a Sim card. So we are looking at about 700 smacks just to get started. I guess an additional $200 is not a huge deal, but it seems crazy to spend that much more when other carriers offer it for so much less. What will it take for AT&T to start offering some decent phones?
    My cell phone and my palm device are both on their last legs. I wish to stay with AT&T. Do you think if I wait, AT&T will jump on the bandwagon?

    I got a SIM card for free with AT&T wireless in Florida. I just told them I wanted to convert from my TDMA phone to a GSM one and I told them I already had an unlocked GSM phone, so they just sent me the chip for free. My suggestion is to sign up with AT&T with a free TDMA phone, and after a week tell them you want to "migrate" over to GSM. By the way I did all this and I live in Canada and my main provider is Rogers!!

    You have to have had your TDMA for a year to convert at no charge and get a free SIM card. My understanding is that if not they will charge you retroactively for the "free" TDMA phone.

    I had mine for 6 months but I suspended my account for most of the time. Just keep calling AT&T until some guy does it for you. You know my phone number is still active even though my account is suspended; these big companies are all "screwed up"!! Make up some story if you have to. Trust me, it's really not that hard and I bet you most people on this chat board would agree with me.
