    Apart from the obviously cheaper price and the phone connection:

    Could I technically use any GSM network with a sim-free Treo or is there an advantage of having your treo issued by a network because of the email/browser (and other) settings?

    Not sure whether I am explaining myself clearly here....Thanks anyway...

    You can use an unlocked GSM phone on any network. The simcard should determine your network settings automatically in most cases.

    Most carriers claim that the branded device has been "optimized" for their network. I think that's a total crock. Its just a ploy to get you to buy phones from them so they make the money on the sale and lock you into a new contract. I was told by many AT&T people, store and phone, that an unlocked phone will not work on their network. The phone will, but the Internet won't. Back then, I believed them. Since then I've used many unlocked phones on their network.
