    Even if you decide that a GPRS data plan isn't right for you, there are many UI enhancements included in the Treo GPRS Upgrade:

    Call History: We moved it to the pulldown menus, to make room for the search field at the bottom of the screen (more info).

    Mute button: Now you can mute the microphone on your device during phone calls. This comes in handy if you're participating in a conference call on the road and your location is loud.

    Network status icons: Because GPRS offers new ways to connect to the network, you'll see some different network status icons on your screen (more info).

    Expense application: We moved the Expense application's memory location (more info).

    Network Preferences: With the addition of GPRS data capabilities to your Treo communicator, the Network Preferences panel on your device has changed slightly. Usually, we recommend that most users do not change the Network Preferences after installing the Treo GPRS Upgrade. These settings are installed automatically during the upgrade process.

    Speakerphone any time: After installing the Treo GPRS Upgrade, you will be able to switch to Speakerphone mode any time. Previously, you needed to wait for a call to be picked up on the other end. To activate Speakerphone, tap the on-screen icon, or press the Spacebar.

    "SOS Only" mode: A new way to let you know that you're out of a wireless coverage area with your current provider, but you can still make emergency 911 calls (more info).

    Access phone numbers, URLs or email addresses from SMS messages

    Date & time displayed on Speed Dial screen (info)

    Faster Contacts List

    Option to pause a data session to answer incoming voice call

    Highlight and access Blazer links with the rocker switch

    Enter text directly into web pages instead of popup window

    Call barring

    Numerous other corrections like fixing minor graphical glitches, speeding up performance and customizing error messages to be carrier-specific.

    I was wondering if this works on the 300 or does the 300 have all the updates already? would this kill the 300? has anyone tried it?

    First of all, it is for a completely different cell phone technology, so it would probably mess things up pretty badly if Handspring didn't already place the safeguards in to prevent you from installing it (which they most likely have).

    Second, as you suggested, most of the other enhancements that are included with the GPRS upgrade are already there for the Treo 300.

    This can't possibly work. The radio of the 300 is a totally different unit than the radio in a 270 (different frequency spectrum).
