    I subsequently applied the patch. Nothing changed (logos, etc), but the phone works better now (no screech or echo anymore & faster GPRS).
    Are we sure that they INT extension means international or unbranded? I ask because my T-Mobile Treo 600 has the INT extension.
    Enquiring minds want to know ...

    That is what the INT means, and it was quite interesting to see the messages from the few of you who received the T600's from T-Mo. I guess everyone, me included, expected the firmware to be something-TMO instead of something-INT.

    I wonder if T-Mo is ever planning on customizing their phones (with a T-Mo picture when you turn the phone part on, for example)? Funny that my Cingular turned INT T600 has a (custom installed, of course) T-Mo personalization, while the "real" ones don't.

    It's also interesting to see that the firmware isn't as new as the INT firmware we can install ourselves (thanks to Handspring's Italy division, and some very helpful members). And yes, I did read the warnings.

    The only technical question I haven't seen answered by anyone who just received the T600's from T-Mo, is if they're locked or not. I don't know if all INTernational T600's are unlocked "by definition" or not. Since T-Mo is pretty good about giving out unlock codes, it really doesn't make much of a difference, though it appears that an unlocked phone from the factory remains that way after a firmware upgrade, while a phone that was locked from the factory, and unlocked with the proper code, needs to be unlocked again (using the same code) if the firmware is updated.

    While I won't be receiving my T-Mob Treo 600 until Monday, I've been using a P800 (which I've come to hate, hence moving to the T600) to access my comcast mail for couple of years now. Here are my settings:

    incoming mail server: mail.comcast.net
    outgoing mail server: smtp.comcast.net
    user id: whatever is before the @ in your email address
    password: your same password as from your desktop

    That's it. Should work.

    Also, I've had the 19.99 VPN unlimited plan on the P800. The difference is the port access. If you want to do anything secure or transactional (i.e. ebay, ecommerce) then you need this plan. Otherwise, save the money.

    Hey Bill - we have two T-Mobile Treo 600s. Surprisingly, there is no T-Mobile branding at all. Nothing.

    And the answer to your question is: Both Treos came SIM card locked...

    I received mine yesterday and it's SIM-Locked.

    How did you get your t-mobile treo so soon? I thought they are not generally available?

    Has anyone tried using the "free" (included) T-Mobile wap browsing with the T600? I have free unlimited wap as a part of my plan (like everyone else), but I understand that the ports are limited.

    What if you don't have a static IP to set up proxy? Is there some way to browse without getting a T-Mo data plan?
    I have a bluetooth Nokia 6310i, a Palm tungsten T, and a Treo 270 with TMobile Service.

    There are several issues here.

    1) With unlimited TMobile GPRS Internet ($19.99/mo), everything is very easy. All Ports are available. The Treo 270 sets everything up automatically when the SIM card is installed. I sssume that the 600 will be the same. When I put a ATT SIM in the 270 it automatically configures for ATT.

    To use the Nokia Phone as a Bluetooth GPRS Modem takes a little more setup. In the GPRS Modem setup, the GPRS Access Point needs to be set to

    internet2.voicestream.com

    You will need to then setup the Palm Tungsten (or any computer or Pocket PC) for a network LAN connection

    username voicestream
    password <leave blank, but make sure it is assigned>

    2) All current TMobile accounts should now have unlimited FREE WAP access. This is designed to give an internet access for access to WAP sites. It opens Port 80 only.

    The $4.99 TZones gives you access to TMobiles WAP site (this is unessassayr with the Noikia Phone or the Treo 600). The $9.99 TZones Pro I believe also adds WAP based messessaging and other features that I don't need with the Treo or the Nokia, check with TMobile for details).

    For use with the TREO or a Palm, you do not need the extra cost TZones service ONLY the free WAP Access.

    I have used the Treo 270 to access email with Eudora, do web surfing with Eudora Web. With no problems. Blazer requires use of a Free Proxy. Snapper Mail requires you to set the email ports to 80. With the Tungsten T, WAP requires you to set the access point and an IP address

    WAP access point: wap.voicestream.com

    IP address: 216.155.165.050

    With the 270 (and the Palm T) you need to set up a dial up network connection


    For the 270 (and probably the 600)

    User Name (leave blank)
    Password (leave blank)
    Connection (GPRS)
    APN: wap.voicestream.com

    For a bluetooth phone as a connection for a Palm T or T3

    User Name (enter a space or leave blank)
    Password (enter a space or leave blank)
    Connection (your bluetooth phone name)
    Phone Number: *99#

    On the Bluetooth Phone

    For GPRS modem setting, Set WAP access pointe to:

    wap.voicestream.com

    For the Wap browser,

    set WAP access point: wap.voicestream.com

    IP address: 216.155.165.050

    There are some other minor settings.


    3) The Free WAP access provides sufficient internet access for me. I cancelled my $19.99/mo unlimited internet access.

    WIth the free WAP access, I can only connect via Port 80.

    WIth the free WAP access, I can not access some secure sites.

    For occasional browsing, and email acccess this is all I need and it is unlimited, does not use my minutes, and is free.

    It will also work for internet access for a desktop/laptop connection with a bluetooth conenction or use of a PC GPRS card.

    Not bad.

    Hope this helps

    If I cancel my unlimited internet for $20 and change to the free WAP, I know I can still access my roadrunner mail but can I still use tmobile's SMTP (that I need to use to send).

    ANSWERING MY OWN QUESTION: YES. (Edited the message)

    Thanks,
    Matt

    >All current TMobile accounts should now have unlimited FREE WAP access.

    Hmm, I don't appear to have it. (I'm using a 270) I followed your instructions above on setting it up, but when signing in, it says "GPRS is not available or is not activated on your account" (or something to that effect).

    Some folks on howardforums said when you login to my-tmobile, it should say "Free WAP Access" in your account settings. Mine doesn't.

    So I guess I have to call? I feel kind of funny calling them up to tell them they need to give me a free service. hehe

    If you don't want to call, email customer service and ask for the "free unlimited WAP". I did that for my wife's 270 and had it up and running 24 hours later.

    Just like Buckybacker said - 24 hours later and I'm online. Now here's the really cool part - I can use my mail server with Eudora. Why is this big news? Because I run SPOP3 and SMTP AUTH/TLS on my server, and I was under the impression that this free service locked out all SSL ports. Unfortunately 443 and 22 aren't open, but I'm still pretty happy that 995 is (plus of course 80). This is too good to last.

    Do you need a different browser than Blazer in order to use free unlimited WAP on a Treo 270? Will it work with Snapper Mail?

    Also, I thought someone posted a message elsewhere saying that T-Mobile may be trying to "plug up the holes" in their system that allow people to get free unlimited WAP service. Has anyone else heard about this? Can anyone verify whether it's true?

    Blazer is fine. You will need to enter a proxy server though.

    You can find one with a google search of free proxy...

    Ok, something strange just happened to me. I called T-Mo to change my rate plan. They did so immediately and did not ask me to sign another contract because they say I've been such a good customer. A little later I got an SMS message from a strange phone number that said: OTA OK. About that time my Wireless Internet stopped working and when I tried to reconnect, It complained about my having a bad APN. I decided to configure a WAP service as described here. It works like a charm.

    I go to the T-Mo web site and it appears my $19.99 data service has been un-provisioned. I'm cool with that as long as WAP works w/ the Blazer proxy.

    Bottom line is that I'm saving $40 a month now between my change in rate plan and the unintended switch to free WAP from the $19.99 internet plan.

    600 minutes with free weekends & evenings and unlimited data. $39.99! I'm happy!

    My wife just called and asked for free WAP. She'll be up by tomorrow.

    Too good to be true!!!!
