    The 300 uses a CDMA radio, while the 180/270 use GSM/GPRS (Cingular, TMobile, ATT). CDMA is used by Sprint/Verizon. Since Sprint doesn't use GSM bandwidth, they can't get GPRS. They still have highspeed always on though with Vision.

    The Add here in this treocentral system states that the Treo 300 is able to support the GPRS with a software upgrade. Is this true or NOT?

    The short answer is no, the Treo 300 does not support GPRS.

    For a better more developed explanation see christo1970's above post.

    Unless you travel internationally (like Europe), you do not want GPRS. It provides slower data speeds (~56kbps max) and has less coverage than Sprint's 1xRTT network (Vision). With the Treo 300 you get greater US coverage and faster data speeds than GPRS (T-Mobile, etc.) could ever provide. And as stated in the previous posts, the Treo 300 uses CDMA technology, something that is totally incompatible with GSM/GPRS.

    It's not an ad for the Treo 300 - We hope that our product database can be used for people to comment on products (not just our reviews), and get quick info to compare Treo accesories. Granted this hasn't been updated to recently - but we are working on going back and adding all the Treo specific items and software. However the 300 entry was wrong and has been fixed.
