    Wow, top work looks really good.

    And has a lot of potential as long as the reception is not affected, which i fear it might be not 100% though.

    If that works for the 700p count me in for 2 when/if the GSM is release

    Again, the reception should not be affected. The actual antenna will be the same length as the original. It's just going to be more internal.

    I would also like this for the 700p.

    Are the antennas the same internally between GSM and non-GSM?
  5.    #65  
    GSM and CDMA use the same frequencies. So yes, they are the same.

    I'm using a CDMA antenna on my GSM Treo. My original antenna broke off after less than 6 months.

    Since you are going through the whole trouble of making the antenna,
    maybe you could make them with additional features like maybe an
    LED on it or a headphone jack or maybe a hole for a laynard...

    Basically, whatever we have been missing and wished we had in this
    general area.

    I like my antenna the way it is... on my 650 that is. I'd prefer an antenna-less Treo if the form factor was thinner.

    I wouldn't be interested unless it improved reception, or unless mine was broken. I would be tempted if the antenna was completely internal, but just a shorter nub doesn't appeal to me any more or any less. Amazing work though!

    I would get one if the price was under $25 and postage (shipping) to Australia was also reasonable, often the shipping is too much and I don't buy a product as a result. However, the short antenna would be great and help prevent it from catching on things.

    I would definitely be on board for $30 or less... any more than that & I might have second thoughts. Will you be throwing in the tool needed to remove the old antenna or will we need to purchase that separately?

    You don't need a special tool. A size 5 Torx screwdriver (T5) is all you need; they're easily found in most electronics and hardware stores. Most people who fiddle with their phones should already have one (or more).

    It is important to note that installing this antena would void one's warranty. There is a little sticker on that screw that would have to be destroyed in order to remove and re-install the screw. FWIW, both of my units are well out of warranty anyway.

    One thing to keep in mind is that under the rubber plug and covering the antenna screw, is a warranty sticker. If your phone is still under warranty, breaking this sticker could cause you warranty repair issues in the future.

    I AGREE!!

    Regarding the warranty sticker.

    Yes, removing that screw requires you to go through the sticker BUT it is easly removed without breaking it and then put back.

    i was about to point that out. YUP, the warranty sticker is located on the back of that screw.

    (there is a way to maneuver the warranty sticker out though)

    Exactly my point... I don't normally fiddle with my phone (other than the software) and if one isn't included, it is helpful to now know the right size/type so I can go get one separately... Unless you are one of those that has more than one & would be willing to send it to me

    me too - it actually helps me get it out of the vertical case I use. Maybe this one would grow on you after a while, but that "stubbiness" looks weird to me!

    There's a lot of hope for this new mod for antenna... but when is it going to be be made??

    There's no talk about it actually being produced.

    Hopefully in a few weeks. We are finalizing the whole thing in the next few days.
