    Nokia had one right, then it sounds like. I could remove the cover on my old 330 and replace it with something completely different. (No, I'm not saying that ANY Nokia is better than a Treo, believe me... Don't want to start a flame war against me... )

    Of course, the best part of this scenario is that this develops a huge market for new covers, lighted keypads, etc. That should satisfy all the HS/Palm corporate guys who only care about the bottom line while still giving us what we as customers want...

    No flame war Raw Data, It is not my style and I am really interested in what other devices bring to the table for ideas. I'm expecting that HS/PalmOne will not want users taking their 600's apart and would probably void rwarranty. Maybe the extended warranty will cover it. Right now, just curious if it is feasable, technically.

    I painted a few Nokia phone faces a while back, the paint chipped off. Probably could have prepped them better and used a better paint.

    So do we go with flat, gloss or semi-gloss black for the GSM 600???

    Ok..now I'm confused. Is the GSM or CDMA version black? I want the black one too! Does Sprint offer both GSM and CDMA?

    Sprint (CDMA) and Orange UK (GSM) will be selling the black Treos. Treo's that are not branded for a specific mobile proviider will be silver.
    Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch to be sure.

    I am going to call Orange in London later today and see if they will sell me an unlocked black GSM phone. I will report back on my findings here.

    I really want a black Treo 600!

    Thanks for clarifying, JHETZEL. Looks like I'll be getting the black one with Sprint...someday.

    Sounds like Orange has a tight agreement with HS to not ship outside the US and they may also not be willing to let them go for nothing since you won't be on their network.

    It would be nice if we could just use our phones anywhere much like our trusty hardwired phones.

    What level of employee is she? Is she just a retail sales person at an Orange store, or is she corporate? Hey Jake, keep on eye out on expansys UK, I think they might carry the dark Orange version for sale. Also, if you find a means of acquiring the Orange T600 please let me know, I would love to pick one up also. Any one in the UK willing to ship out some Treos? PM me if you are..

    Hi Daftgem!

    I don’t know what level employee she is. I just sent them and email and asked? I tried to call but the only phone number I could find was a toll free UK number.

    My assistant has some good friends in the U.K. that could pick them up and send them. Assuming we figure out a way how to obtain them from the U.K. we can share how in this post?

    Sound good?
