    Could anyone advise me where to buy a unlocked GSM Treo 600 directly, without service plan from service provider?

    My cousin is studying in LA and he will come back to Hong Kong for vacation mid of May. Therefore, I am asking his help to buy me a Treo 600. (Treo 600 is not released here, but one of the service provider is listing US$800 in its webpage!!!)

    Is it possible to buy a Unlocked GSM Treo 600 around US$500?

    I really appreciate your help.

    You might want to get one from Palmone.com (unlocked without service plan) for 699.

    or you can buy one locked to ATT for $449 and have someone to unlock for you.

    I got my directly from PalmOne (former handspring) when they had the discount promotion. got it for 399 + tax

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    Is it easy to unlock it and find someone to unlock? I am affair I cannot find someone to unlock in Hong Kong.

    The discount promotion from US Handspring was really good. Many Treo users are complaining here as Palmone Hong Kong does not offer discount for existing Treo User.

    I did not notice (or I did not read carefully) that you are in HK.
    Well, I am not too sure about unlocking in HK. Sintak might do but it seems a risky to me :P

    If your budget is allowed, get one from PalmOne directly. But make sure Palm One does not have a huge backlog. I had waited totally 2 months for the phone. (part of that was my cc's fault!!)

    may be your cousin can get one from Cingular. I hear Treo600 from Cingular might be sold as unlocked.

    i have the stuff for you to unlock your treo remotely
    i would sell it to you for 30 dollars via paypal, and then you can just buy the phone locked
    its simply a flash file that installs itself through the device, you don't need any special equipment
    works very well

    superfire,
    Thank you very much for your help. I really appreciate your help.

    I just did some research and found unlocking information too.

    However, I am considering to ask my cousin to buy it from the service provider (I do know which one he is using) and request his service provider to unlock it for the reason that he need to use it in HK. It seems it is safer way. Otherwise, I will ask him to buy one from palmone directly.

    jacky,

    i agree with you. it is safer to request his service provider to unlock it rather than "hacking" the firmware.

    good luck and you will love the phone. may be you can start gathering info / sofwares / links for your Treo before it comes. then once you get it, you can start using it with the apps right the way.
