    [sung to an old Mamas and Papas tune (who!?)]

    Monday, December 29th, is Yet Another Rumored Release Date for the TREO 600 compatible with T-Mobile.

    To make this rumor even more juicier - but not necessarily more valid - T-Mobile apparently is FINALLY out (*) of TREO 270s!

    -- http://www.t-mobile.com/products/def...***=pda&nav=hm

    How about that!

    ====

    (*) I like where T-Mobile says "due to high demand" - HA HA HA!

    ------

    [editted to add the possibly-broken-for-YOU T-Mobile link and an editorial comment. Editted again to correct the "Monday..." sentence to reflect that the best info we have is that the TREO 600 will be COMPATIBLE with T-Mobile but actually will be sold by palmOne, NOT T-Mobile (though linked fromT-Mobile's site).

    Editted one final time to note:

    On reviewing this post I was surprised to see an Amazon ad over there to the right for a Mamas and Papas CD! Ha ha ha! Content-based advertising rules!]

    Could explain the delay - they were waiting to sell out (or sell the remainder to an outlet).
    Enquiring minds want to know ...

    I saw that posted on the T-Mobile site too. Maybe they put the text "Sorry, due to high demand this device is currently unavailable" to be able to just "cut/paste" the Treo 600 there.

    Hmm, that makes sense too - remember earlier when t-mobile had a pic of a 600 on the business page? The link led directly to the 270 order page.

    On the other hand, I've heard it will be back-ordered if announced on Monday.

    Regarding compatability, I got tired of waiting for the T-
    Mo branded 600, so bought the unlocked Cingular model. Any SIM should work in any unlocked multi-frequency GSM phone. I have been using a new T-Mo SIM in the Cingular branded 600 with no problems, which is what should be expected.

    I missed out on any potential T-Mo activation discount, however I rec'd the $200 upgrade discount on each phone for my wife and myself.

    i also have been waiting for the TMo Treo 600 and decided to buy the Cingular branded version. I had spoken with a few people at Handspring and was told that the Tmo version of the 600 is going to be basically the same as the Cingular, except with TMo branding. They even offered to sell me the Cingular version direct from Handspring, but I decided to buy it at a Cingular store instead. Been very happy for the past 2 weeks. Even TMo told me there would most likely not be any differences between the two models except for branding. I do not see what more they could do to it to make it 'more' compatible. I have been a GSM user since Cingular was PacBellPCS and when I bought my 1st GSM phone I was told I could use ANY SIM in these phones and it would not be a problem. I don't see what would make a difference now.

    Just my $0.02.

    Wrong thread since this was fairly thoroughly discussed elsewhere:

    -- http://discussion.treocentral.com/tc...threadid=43827

    but palmOne says Cingular phones aren't advised for other carriers' networks. Why? I have no idea, but that's what the manufacturer of the TREO 600 says.

    Maybe they're lying.

    I will say that I've seen a "slight" increase in GPRS speed since upgrading the firmware on my Cingular phone using T-Mobile. Of course, now that I've flashed it, the phone is no longer "Cingular" optimized - if there was any optimization originally.

    Forgive me but what does this have to do with the release date for a Tmo T600? Maybe we could give the moderators just a little break?


    Has anyone heard from Hump? He seems to have the inside scoop on the tmo release saga.

    Ralogon1,

    What do you mean by this:

    >>>I missed out on any potential T-Mo activation discount, however I rec'd the $200 upgrade discount on each phone for my wife and myself.<<<

    Were you a new customers?

    Thanks,

    I spoke with a CSR from T-mobile who stated that as far as she knows, it's not coming out on Monday. She said her boss is dying to get the Treo 600 for T-mobile and that he follows this pretty closely. The latest he has heard is late January, early February.

    What is wrong with T-mobile???

    I should have bought the cingular upgrade...

    I am using a tmo sim in a cingular phone. I generally have no problems, but upon first connecting to the network I notice that the gprs seems to fail once before succeeding.

    I went into an AT&T store and tried out the Treo 600. It did not have this problem -- the GPRS connection was instant after powering on the phone and accessing the web.

    Also, the data rate was a bit higher than I am getting. I don't know if this is the result of the AT&T network, or whatever other factors may be involved. I tried this in Oakland, CA.
