    Well I am officially a member of the Treo of the week club! I am on my third unit in less than a month of owning a Treo 180. First unit locked up, second unit the vibrator quit working a week after I got it and now the third is coming airborne tomorrow. I like the Treo, I like not having to carry a palm and a phone to have information and connectivity handy. I just think their QC or something leaves a little to be desired! Hopefully the third time is a charm!

    Man, I must be the only guy in the world who hasn't had a lick of trouble with their 180 since I bought it a few months back. Knock on wood, I've probably just jinxed myself!

    Just a followup... recieved the advanced replacement unit (#2) and it was locked to Rogers AT&T. I am an AT&T user so I can see how they got confused! I called Customer Support immediately and they told me that all the people who knew how to unlock had left the building! They'd get back to me within 24 hours. I decided I might try the email approach while I was waiting. I sent a request via the web and got a reply from them that I would need to contact my wireless provider for an unlock! I think to myself AT&T will be glad to give me an unlock code for a phone they don't support that is locked to another provider! Does handspring not even read their email???? I wait 23 hours and had not heard anything. I start to think that it is friday and "all those people who know how to unlock" might leave early so I call back yet again. This time I get a nice fellow who takes my work number and tells me someone will call within 10 minutes with the codes. After waiting 2.5 hours I get someone that knows the codes and I am back in business! Hopefully this unit will be the magic one!

    Greg,

    Can you post the unlock codes here? Are they specific to Rodgers and/or ATT?

    Thanks,

    The unit I received was locked to Rogers AT&T. I am not sure if the unlock code is specific to each unit or generic. I have been told that if it is the wrong code and you enter it 3 times it will lock your unit. Does anyone one else know for sure? I can PM you with the code they gave me if you like, but I would bet unless your unit is locked specifically to Roger AT&T it won't work. My very first unit was a Tmobile and I used the code from TigerDirect. I tried going back to that site when I received this one and it refused my IMEI. I would like to know more about treo unlocking and how it works. If anyone knows and reads this and can enlighten me I'd appreciate it.
