    Please do not forget that the American version will not be able to operate on 1800 MHz! Depending on your area, this may seriously impact the signal strengh and lead to call drop outs, less standby time or no network coverage at all.

    Thanks for the information, I have a Treo 180 that was bought in the US and that one seems to work here in Norway without any problems.

    Great Idea, I think there where several members from Malasia, Korea, Hong-Kong & Singapure ...

    There it should be compatible.

    p.s. - Have you tried connecting to 1800MHz service?, maybe you have just used the 900MHz.

    I do not know if it is possible to connect to 1800MHz, my understanding is that if the 900MHz is overloaded it will switch automaticly to 1800MHz.
    The shop that sell or will sell the Treo 270 here in Norway advertice that it works on 1800MHz.
    Does that mean that they have an European version of the Treo 270??

    Yes, they have a 900/1900 US version and a 900/1800 Euro version.

    I have used my treo 180 900/1900 U.S. unit in Europe, it works fine. It finds the 900 network there with better signal strength than in the U.S. on 1900 If I lived in Europe I would prefer the U.S. version since it works in U.S. and Europe. I think the only place in Europe that there might be a problem would be in the U.K.

    the US version does work in the UK - not with all operators though. Orange for example is 1800 only (in London at least) which was a bummer - cause it offered the cheapest roaming for me.

    Will GPRS be affected by having the other type ?

    i.e. - will it be available only on 1900/1800 or also on 900 ?

    What is the price for a Treo 270 In Norway?
    Here in France I got mine for 895 Euros which I think is very expensive.

    It was the same in France but now we can find it in every big stores and networks. If somebody is interested I may sell mine because my company plans to supply pocket PC to all sales staff in a few weeks (probably after summer holidays).
    It would be a good deal, I got my Treo 270 2 weeks ago, and it is brand new
