    I am a technology dummy but have a Treo 650 that my brother gave to me. His provider was Cingular and I have Verizon. Is there any way to convert this phone so that I can activate it and use it for my Verizon account? Seems like a scam when Verizon tells me that it cannot be done.
    thanks for any help!

    No. Different technologies in use: Cingular is GSM, Verizon is CDMA.

    Is Verizon still using CDMA? They refuse to open accounts for traditional CDMA hardware, my understanding is that they are using CDMA-2000 on the Treo and their new phones, which is not at all the same as plain CDMA.

    Julie, a Cingular Treo will be GSM and if it is unlocked it can also be used on T-Mobile, but that's about it. Rates and service and company lies on Verizon and Cingular are about the same, unless you're a captive on a "family plan" or you've got some other reason you can't change.

    GSM Treos generally sell for more than CDMA Treos on eBay. Sell the GSM and use the proceeds to buy a Verizon one. If the GSM one is unlocked it will go for more as well.
