    There were GSM 600s in Singapore and Hong Kong before they were available here. The first ones available here were Cingular branded and were unlocked.

He may be referring to the Cingular version and just calling it unlocked out of lack of knowledge.
    the vc buyers will get an unlocked phone. when will we get? who knows.

    but now that shadow is on the case. i have no doubt cingular's will be unlocked b4 the weekend.

    ok, maybe monday.

    My recollection is that on the 600 they played the Sprint game to the last card but did not play the Cingular game. Since they clearly intend to play the Cingular game this time, my sense is that they will play it all the way. I do not think that they will ship any unlocked phones until Cingular ships and may give Cingular months as they did with Sprint.

    REN: DUN (aka dial-up networking) Not completely correct. It's part of the BT Spec and some carriers (Sprint for sure) have disabled it via firmware within the specific handsets. If it is enabled (by hacking <thanks Shadowmite > or by the carrier) you will be able to use it irrespective of whether the carrier will "technically" support it or not. Once it's enabled they won't charge you more because they would have no idea if you are using it or not (because you can do the same thing with a USB cable - and they can't see your phone to know how (OR IF) you are using it.).

    You may be thinking of "tethering" which can be done with or without BT and with either method they may EXPECT YOU to pay for a specific data plan that ALLOWS it. But, for the most part, they can't tell that either as many people can attest to.

    I'm sure someone on this board (like me) would buy your VC order if it was unlocked.
    I doubt you'd have a hard time finding someone to take it off your hands!

    In NYC area cingular just released the LG F9100 on their site, i wonder if thats a sign the 650 will be on the site soon. Do they tend to wait a bit and release phones around the same time?

    Hi all! I've been a lurker here for quite some time now. Thanks everyone for all the great info and tips.

    Just wanted to inform you all that I too was able to order a Treo 650 through Cingular Blue (AT&T Wireless Business) this morning. Through my business account I got it for $399 and had to sign for two years. But the best part was that I got to keep my $99 charter offer! It was not easy to get this to happen but I really had to fight for it. I called several reps and ended up talking to an upper-level manager. I also had to add on a 7.99 data plan but I'm hoping to upgrade that to an unlimited plan in the future.

    Everyone keep faith. It'll be out for all consumers soon! Don't give up!

    Yes, but I'm not buying from vc so that doesn't help me or most users.

    There may to a "patch" to unlock the Cingular one, but I'm not really interested in that. Additionally, none of the Cingular stores I've talked to will sell a phone without a contract. I suppose you might be able to pay P1 full price for it, but if I'm paying full price I want an unlocked unbranded Treo.

    You posted some speeds of 175k before but I assume that wasn't with a Treo 650 right? The speeds I've seen posted so far are all slower than what I'm getting on a Sprint 650. I always get between 110 - 119k. This is with one or two bars only. Anyone getting faster than that with an EDGE Treo 650 (other devices or cards don't count here).
