Maybe it is a silly question, but after researching for hours I cannot find a way to unlock my AT&T Treo 680, so I was wondering if I install a custom ROM...would it become unlocked????

Please enlight me.....Thanks in advance!

Flashing it with a new ROM will not unlock the device. When I had my Treo 680 I simply called AT&T and they unlocked it for me. Since the phone is so old, they should have no issues simply unlocking it for you over the phone. If for some reason they won't do it, you can order up an unlock code from many companies for as little as $12 on-line (ie: Unlock Cell Phone Online | Cell Phone Unlocking | Unlock Cell Pro | imei Unlock Codes | Phone Unlock Code)

Call AT&T before you do anything and tell them you have an OLD phone that you need to have unlocked.

Good luck

Thanks! I had hope that there were a way to UNLOCK it for free already, since (as you said) this is an old phone.......and we do not even pay for unlocking an iPhone nowadays.

Yeah... with AT&T they used to only unlock after you had pretty much run your contract through. Since the Treo series is so old, they should have no issues (especially since they unlock iPhone's as you said).

I'm in Soth America and found this poor Treo at a flea market....for about $3!!!! So calling AT&T is not an option.... Maybe (after all) I will have to pay for this unlock codes on the internet....
Thanks HelloNNNewman!

You could always put it on eBay and use the proceeds to buy an actual unlocked one.

I figure it would be a net zero purchase (should be able to sell the locked one for the same price as thew unlocked one). I'd imagine the listing fees and shipping would be less than an unlock code.

Possibly... but for all the time and effort $12 for an unlock code might be worth it.

Well, officially, SDHC support doesn't exist. But 4 GB SDHC cards should work. (People have had success by copying the 680 SD driver to the 700p and getting SDHC support there.)

8 GB SDHC cards are also workable, BUT PalmOS can be a bit wonky. e.g. seeing only 4 in Card Info... YMMV
Some people have had success, so I think it should work. Worth a shot. (If you are buying a 8 GB card, get a microSD with an adapter. Makes for more flexibility down the road.)

(just wondering, has anyone ever seen a NON-SDHC 4 GB card? I heard they exist)

Really hoping that the 1.12 unbranded and 2.11 ATT custom roms are still available out there.

I've looked as far as I can search... anyone still have them?

I have 2 Treo 680s. An ATT running 2.11 and a Cingular running 1.12 ROW

All I want is mail, blazer, calendar, and documents-2-go

I haven't been able to find any custom ROM, I guess the phone is obsolete and too much outdated ;(

i have a windows mobile 700w, and all the custom ROM links have long since gone dead, so i guess it's no surprise the 680's in the same boat

I'm still using a Treo 680 at that time and plan to go on for a while.

I was disapointed as others by the fact that the SMS receipt disapeared with new updates as 1.12 ROW for an example.

My Treo is a Palm unlocked GSM 680. I'm french.

I surfed the web anf forums to get the solutions without success and it is a bit boring for me, due to my poor english speaking.

Could someone (if there are stil people reading this thread) tell me which is the good firmware version for the Treo 680 into which the SMS receipts works ??

And if there is a way to flash my phones (I have many) with this version ?

Thanks by advance.

Note that concerning SD cards I never had any kinf of problem using 16 Gb cards, they are recognized by CardExport with no problem and also by Documents To Go and Ptunes and even by the Palm "Files" application ..
