    If you are calling $4.99/month "ridiculously overpriced" then I guess the Treo itself is WAY out of your price range

    I spoke with someone in the Wireless Tier 2 group who told me that they are going to "close" the ability to use T-Zones to get an HTTP connection within the next 6 months.

    For the first time in a long time, good news for Californians? I too use Cingular Treo 600 with Tmobile chip and no voice or GPRS problems. But we are using the Cingular network as T-mobile uses the Cingular system in CA in a swap where Cingular uses Tmobile network in NY. Note that the Tmobile posts citing no problems are in CA and those with problems are outside CA. So maybe everyone is right. There is a Tmobile problem BUT not if you are a Tmobile customer in CA.

    I've had some strange problems with T-Mobile and an unbranded T600 in which the network became unusable without intervention from a Tier II tech. This happened once, twice, and sometimes even MORE often EVERY DAY. And when it did happen, the Treo couldn't be used for phone calls either (it was hung up somehow).

    I suspect that's the problem, anyway, but who knows.

    Since there's more than a handful of people who plan on using Cingular branded Treo 600 on T-Mobile's network, would you mind elaborating on what the Tier 2 technician did to resolve the problem and how long it tok for the fix?

    After sleeping on it, I think I know the 'synching' problems you guy was talking about.

    To my knowledge, the Treo 600 will be T-Mobile's first quad-band phone (though I may be wrong) as most are Tri-band phones. That would also explain why the people in California are working fine because they are using Cingular's quad-band network.

    Let me say it again There is no problem with TMOs network and the Treo 600, I have 3 so far with my company and none are having any problems using GPRS with TMO Internet plans, SMS or Calling functions. 2 are in NYC and mine is in Ft. Lauderdale

    HumP,

    Your sample population is WAY too small to draw any conclusion whatsoever.

    Just another data point. I received an unlocked Cingular Treo 600 yesterday and plopped in my TMO SIM. I set the network to T-Zones (which is the plan I use as I am grandfathered into it at $2.99 for unlimited usage).

    The phone works fine for voice and can make an agonizingly slow, but perfectly good data connection over CSD. In other words I can get mail, surf (if you can call it that) etc. over CSD, but the phone does not see a GPRS network. The GPRS indicator does not come on and the phone cannot connect through GPRS.

    This is in New York City where TMO's GPRS is generally okay.

    Is anyone getting GPRS through TMO on a Treo 600 in NYC? I notice several people posting saying "T-Zones works!" which is true, but is it working thorugh GPRS or CSD?

    The difference, in case people are not aware, is that if you see two little green arrows on the signal indicator in the upper right you have made a CSD connection NOT a GPRS connection.

    Hope this helps,

    -Steve

    Search the forum for GPRS or CSD.
    Supposedly there is a typo in the Treo 600 manual,
    where those 2 arrows your talking about really do mean GPRS, or the other way around...can't remember off the top of my head.
    But it has been discussed...hope this helps.

    Stephman: Absolutely right. I found the thread you were talking about and it appears there is a typo in the manual and that the green arrows mean GPRS. That'll teach me to RTFM.

    So, my data point is now that my unlocked Cingular Treo 600 works fine in NYC on my old TMO account for voice and GPRS data. Also, GPRS data is REALLY slow, especially for sending pictures!

    Lol, glad that helped.
    Wish your gprs was faster.

    My T600 arrives TOMORROW!!! I'll be able to test it out then.

    Just reporting GPRS success on both TMo in Chicago and Cingular in LA. I've got the Cing phone with TMo SIM. Have had some minor connection problems in marginal service areas (2 or less bars).

    Just to add to the speculation ...

    I've been using my Cingular T600 on T-Mobile's network, here in Hawaii for almost three weeks now.

    Cingular no longer offers service in Hawaii and for the very short time they were here they were piggybacking on the existing T-Mo GSM network.

    I have had no problems, whatsoever, with voice or GPRS data (have unlimited internet) aside from a couple of glitches due solely to the handset operation. In fact, I am making this post through Blazer right now!

    Perhaps wheb T-Mo refers to "synching problems" they are referring to an over the air synch of handset data?
