    Awww...who really knows but T-Mobile. I couldn't wait so I went ahead and got a Cingular Treo 600 to work with my T-Mobile account. it's working so far since the Cingular model is the only one currently unlocked (thank you not , AT&T!) I know I'm going to encounter some bugs but I'll work 'em out. Better than waiting for T-Mobile or their reps to get on the same page and get it right. The rep I was on the phone with last night even told me that the T-Mobile Treo 600 (IF it ever is sold as such) will DEFINITELY be locked.

    I mean like at this point...whatever! HS's fault, T-Mobile's fault...pfft! I got mine!

    BrownieVegas,

    Fearing that Tmo would boc at the launch and delay, I also ordered the Cingular GSM 600 and have been using it for a few weeks, no problems. Once I found out from these forums that the Cing 600 would work with a Tmo SIM, I ordered. I do have a second serial number and will probably but the T-mobile version if it becomes available. Have you tried the new free web service tmo is offering on your 600 yet. I am able to mail and browse web sites and have been told by a Tmo CSR that there is no charge added to my preferred basic plan.

    This is part of a log that I am keeping to ensure that if I screw up, I will have documentation.

    On Favorites I pressed web. Was told that I had to connect to the Internet. When I pressed yes, connection was confirmed and the Handspring web page appeared. Guys, all of this blew a 270 user away. Still have not personalized anything and I can surf the web. I am using the default connection, whatever that is. The symbol (opposing arrows) suggests that I have a dial connection rather than a GPRS (triangle) connection.

    However, I just went to the home screen, selected preferences and network to find that this "Cingular" phone already knows about T-Mobile, T-Mobile VPN, and T-Zones. Automatic provisioning, it was in the SIM, or magic? Even my 270 did not know about T-Zones. Did a disconnect, selected T-Zones, and pressed connect. Was asked to confirm that I wanted to connect to the net; then it said, "established." None of the delay I am used to. Still have not personalized anything.

    Do not know what T-Zones does or how to use it. While I was connected to it, I could not connect to PayPal but when I went back to the GPRS connection I could. Restricted service option?

    T-Mobile may not know about the Treo 600 but, if not, then the 600 knows a lot about T-Mobile.

    I called TMobile because I'm having ongoing issues with voicemail that I also experienced with the Sidekick and was also issue with Treo 600....

    It seems like the reps have gone through some extensive training because I've been asked by each representative, I talked to 5 today, if they addressed all my concerns.... anyways, the first representative that I spoke with said that the TMobile branded Treo is available but not available through 1-800-TMOBILE, but that some T-Mobile (corporate?) stores might have them already, she didn't know which ones though.

    *****taken with a grain of salt and a pinch of skeptiscism******

    T-Mobile has large unsold inventories that it needs to liquidate.

    If it stocked the 600 now it would impact its financials. Christmas projections are already in flux because of LNP.

    T-Mobile's failure to stock the most up to date phones will cause our firm to move to another carrier when our existing contracts expire. Every person in our firm has gone through seveal 270s due to the lid problem.

    TREO 270s.

    As does Sprint with TREO 300s?

    Murray:

    Opposing arrows above your signal strength icon apprear when you ARE connected to a GPRS network and the data session is active.

    Don't know if this helps but if your keeping a log it may help to define what's going on.

    That helps. That is a change from the 270 where that symbol was used for a dial connection and a triangle was used for GPRS.

    My log now says, "Cannot synch."

    As of 12/11 the T-Mobile site does show the T600 on its Business Products page, but as stated before, the link takes you to their version of the 270.
    Still there is no reason for them to display the 600 if they really only want to sell the 270.
    Something is about to happen.

    Yep, it's been there about a week already. There's a thread just about it:

    It's looking now like it will be early January for the T-Mo folks, sorry for the continued bad news.

    Nope, j$short I haven't as yet. I'm glad to hear there are some Cingular T600/TMo users that canuse the phone. I don't know...maybe it's location then? I'm wondering too whether or not I'll fare better when and if the TMo version is released. I don't get it...not unless my unit is defective or something.

    btw...on the Prefs screen are you using the T-Mo Internet Service on the Palm connection screen or did you modify the settings? The WAP should be wap.voicestream.com and the T-zones IPA should be 216.155.165.50...no DNS change. This should work...it doesn't!

    Did I say 1Q04? And slipping. My Cingular phone is working just fine on T-mobile with the default settings.

    Now, if it was just working on my PC.

    BrownieVegas,

    I called Tmo and they said they would send a system message to me after enabling my account. If you sign on to Tmo web site and your account you should have wap services = free under your services. If it is not, I'd cal and tell them you heard of internet connectivity to download ringtones and wallpaper and that is all you really want to do. Most users of Tmo probably do not have palm phones and cannot configure pop3 mail clients and palm os browsers..they never even asked me for teh deive I was using.

    I then had to wait about 12 hours and used teh T-zones network connection which was predefined. A GPRS error was present before I contact Tmo, but worked after I waited 12 hours.

    Setting up a new network config with the info above may in fact work, I'll have to try it out..maybe call it FreeMobile...I'll let you know if I have any luck. I do have a Treo 600 (GSM Cingular) with Tmo account and an old VoiceStream SIM (for comparison reasons)

    Thanx. I'd like to know how you made out. I do know that I have WAP enabled...it always was on the first phone so the default settings on the Treo should work. It should be hitting wap.voicestream.com for T-Mo. I'm going to wait a day or two and see what happens. T-Mo seems to be having connectivity issues @ their towers especially here on the East Coast. It's likely that's what's contributing to my GPRS woes.

    Okay, perhaps this is the difference between what I am seeing and others.

    All I did was move my SIM for a 270 fully enabled data account to the new phone. If you are not configured for data already, I have no idea what is likely to happen.

    I have no contracted data on my account and never had it...My SIM is from my visorphone and has been used in a Treo 180 and samsung R225.

    I'm in the Boston area, and noticed a few response issues at home (out in the burbs), but I have always been able to get a connection since this was enabled.

    Not sure if having a data plan previously and trying this free service causes any problems. I get GPRS errors for Tmobile Internet and Tmobile VPN settings..and any of the settings recommended on this and other forums...T-Zones is the only one that works fro me.
