i'm now out of the usa with my treo180 and am having an impossible time making a network connection. it is possible that if i could 'hard-shock' the treo, it would pick up the local networks.

i know the networks aren't a problem and nor are my sim cards (either those bought locally or brought from the usa). i've checked several with other phones but can't get them to work in the treo.

i get the constant notice that 'network search' is underway. but none is found and i can't do it manually because a dialouge box says i need to wait 30 seconds. however, even after hours, it still says i need to wait 30 seconds. i think that somehow the software on my treo is messed up.

any suggestions?

jta.
