    I keep hearing about people having various releases of ROM and ROW firmware on their particular T650.

    Can someone give an easy to understand explanation of the difference? And how do I tell what ROW or ROM I have?

    I look in Phone info and it says:
    Firmware: 01.51
    Software: Treo650-1.17-CNB

    Have an Unlocked Cingular GSM phone.

    Thanks.

    ROM = Read Only Memory - the part of your phone's memory which can't be changed and contains the operating system files and other undeletable files.

    ROW (as used here) means "Rest of the World", meaning that the phone is a GMS phone and is not configured specifically for Cingular or Tmobile.

    ROM - the internal memory part of the Treo - the part of the internal memory normally not accessible for user files. You must have a firmware flashing software to write to the ROM. The files here will remain after a hard reset

    RAM is the rest of the memory on the device - different names: internal memory, Phone....

    ROW is a model description - short for Rest Of the World. Unlocked GSM phones has the ROW fw/sw on them...


    (Now - it'll be up to the rest of you to correct me if I'm wrong )
