    Hey I'm a newbie Treo 650 user. I bought a used unlocked cingular treo 650 from ebay and I'm using a T-mobile sim. I was wondering if there was a way to completely remove the cingular apps. It's not a serious problem but it is sort of annoying to have to go through the Cingular apps and I'm a bit OCD with technology...

    I hear you can do it with custom roms... true or false?

    Any help would be MUCHO appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    You can definitely remove them with a custom rom; I've done this on both 650 and 680. The process is well documented and if you search for "650 Custom Rom" in the 650 forums here, you will find it.

    The only thing I want to add is that if you really are not into getting into the bits and bolts of it, I wouldn't recommend it.
    While the process has been packaged and documented well, it's kind of like installing LINUX -- unless you have some idea, or curiosity, of what is going on under the covers, it is bound to be a bumpy ride.
    Just my $.02, though.

    Hey thanks!
    I'm a tech junkie so I'm really interested in learning how to do it... the more difficult, the more fun...

    Check out the self-installed ENA 1.20 firmware. You can flash to that (which removes alot of apps) through the SD card.
