    It seems all the people who have had their phones shipped or where able to buy one elsewhere did not order a graphite 680. Can someone tell me this is not true?

    Cheers,

    I have a graphite 680, but only because Cingular is my provider and graphite's the only color they're going to sell... maybe they have a monopoly on the color... ??

    What is the purpose of getting it unlocked?

    I travel outside of the country, and need to have the ability to use multiple sim cards.

    I thought I read something about being able to do updates from Palm easier. Is this true?

    From what I know you won´t have to wait for an update from Cingular, you just get the pure one from Palm. Unlocking a Cingular 680 won´t change the system though, only if the guy who unlocks it flashes the ROM to the ones that come in the unlocked versions sold at Palm Retail Stores.

    I already have the Cingular 680 and am thinking about taking it back and getting an unlocked version. Not sure if it's woth the trouble though.

    Hummmmm... I think you´ll have a hard time finding it in graphite. I wanted 2 in that color but all they had at the miami international airport store yesterday was the red, orange and white ones.

    I don´t think you´ll have trouble with it. Since 650 was around for quite some time and it looks like there were no HUGE changes to the OS and the phone itself... and if you got a discount I think it´s allright to have it locked to cingular.

    I had to get the unlocked ones because I live in Brazil.

    How did you go about getting this done? I travel overseas also and they wouldn't do it for my 600.

    I unlocked an HTC and a nokia phone through this forum:

    It has all the info you need on almost any phone.
    Some require a special cable, but this is the do-it-yourself mode.

    I asked. I did the same with my 650. I have been a customer with Cingular for a very long time, and have several lines with them. It took several calls and steps up the chain of command, but as others will tell you, it can be done.

    I just got off of the phone with Palm. I pretty much got the same story from the rep. I was told that my order was in the system and my Graphite 680 would more than likely be shipped out sometime next week. Again, I'm just as anxious as everyone to get my new toy to begin playing with it. However, when we placed our orders, we all knew that it could be 1-2 weeks before anything shipped. We all were wishing, hoping, assuming that all the orders would be out of Palm's door a lot sooner than that, but is it really realistic to assume that everything would be shipped out at the same time in order to meet all of our expectations? Besides all those Graphite Treos have to be somewhere. Maybe they are saving shipping the most popular color out last or something. Now if they simply do not have Graphites in stock at this time, man that would be pretty stupid (almost impossible to believe) of Palm.

    Believe me I understand everything about customer service and pleasing the customer and all that, so don't rip on me too hard with the comments. I think once the two weeks is up starting next week, then we will have the grounds to start making as much noise as possible. Before we all know it, we'll all be having different issue to bi about with Palm once we all have our 680s.
