    Verizon has the 700P on its site: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...edPhoneId=2324

    But if you click the link under Bluetooth Capable, then follow this link: http://dts.vzw.com/pdf/BT_Chart_PDAs.pdf
    it says that DUN is not available for the 700P. Bollocks!!

    Anyone hear anything different?

    If you get the 700P from Palm, will DUN work with VZ's network?

    1998- Palm V
    1999- Palm V8 (upgrade)
    2000- Palm m505
    2001- Palm m515
    2003- Kyocera 7135
    2004- Treo 600 (woc)
    2006- Treo 700p (wc)
    2007- Treo 680 (wc)
    2008- Another Treo 680 (wc) (unlocked)

    That chart only lists the 700W, if I'm not mistaken.

    So it does. My mistake. But, is it clear that VZ is going to offer the DUN capability for the 700P?

    Well, VZW's own announcement listed a tethering option for $15 per mo. extra. But it wasn't mentioned on the web store site when I ordered mine, just the $45 unlimited data plan. I suppose we'll find out later that DUN is an add-on to the plan.

    Direct from VZW's press release at this link: http://news.vzw.com/news/2006/05/pr2006-05-23.html

    Keep in mind when ordering this feature addition to your plan to use the words "BroadbandAccess Connect" with the CSR otherwise they will never find the option in the system.

    Customers can choose from three calling plans that include voice calling and unlimited data access via Verizon Wireless’ BroadbandAccess service:

    $79.99 monthly access – includes 450 anytime minutes with unlimited data usage*, unlimited IN calling and unlimited nights and weekends ($0.45 per minute after allowance).
    $109.99 monthly access – includes 1,350 anytime minutes with unlimited data usage*, unlimited IN calling and unlimited nights and weekends ($0.35 per minute after allowance).
    $169.99 monthly access – includes 4,000 anytime minutes with unlimited data usage*, unlimited IN calling and unlimited nights and weekends ($0.25 per minute after allowance).
    *Unlimited data usage for Internet browsing, e-mail and intranet access within the National Enhanced Services Rate & Coverage Area

    In addition, customers interested in using their Palm Treo 700p as a modem to send and receive data from their laptops can do so using dial-up networking with Verizon Wireless’ BroadbandAccess Connect service. Customers with the Treo 700p and an unlimited data plan with qualifying voice plan can get unlimited BroadbandAccess Connect for $15 monthly access fee, which for many is considerably less than signing up for Wi-Fi access at coffee shops, airports and hotels. Without the qualifying voice plan, customers can get BroadbandAccess Connect with an unlimited data plan for a $30 monthly access fee.

    So what are they going to do if someone doesn't have a BroadbandAccess Connect plan and does a limited amount of DUN?

    Like Sprint, they'll charge you a per kb rate. I've read in other forums that those charges can be super high.

    Give it time, the 650 doesn't "Officially" support DUN, but they found a way....They will find a way. There is always a way
