    i know with other GSM phones there is a way to get them unlocked and also as well have them drbranded, ususally by flashing them with other firmware. anyone know if you can do this with a treo 680 or 750? for example, i am on tmobile and want to buy a locked 680 or 750 for cingular that i can get cheaper, unlock it myself then also make sure it is "debranded" any input on this
    i have done it before with my sony ericsson gsm phone but not sure hwo i would go about doing it with a treo. thanks for the help!

    To add, we haven't yet seen anyone either find a way to flash the unbranded firmware, or to flash a custom ROM.
    Where are all the good hackers these days? It seems like there were so many during the 650 days. I guess they all went to the 700p, or 750 series, or other.

    Sometimes it takes an update to be able to modify. The bootloader is differnt than the 650 so the same tools we had for the 650 will not work.

    It is one of the possibility Nowadays, palm Treo users are divided into smaller groups aka 700p, 700w, 700wx, 750v, 680. Maybe this is what palm want to reduce the chance to brick their Treos?

    United we stand. lol
    Treo Maniac?

    I did, tired of waiting for the copper door for extended battery. With the other colors going away for unlocked users and and someone offering full price for my copper I went to the arctic.
