    Pretty wierd. I thought you didn't refresh and was about to tell you to hit your F5 a few times, but wow! They actually did take it off! Maybe because it is not "coming soon" anymore, and it's available Tuesday morning! Ha ha ha!

    Well lets hope they have a data plan that is equal to the media works they have now. Right now I am thinking I should get a free phone with the media works and when they(p1), come out with the T650, buy it from them for the outrages price they will ask. And swap the sim into it.

    Ya it's gone. The page used to alternate between the Atkins and the gsm 650 coming soon, but now it alternates between Atkins and some stupid weather program. (A weather program? WTF!) As optimistic as I've been about an imminent release tuesday is just too much to hope for DaddyOf3, so I do wonder why it's gone now.
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!

    Would that really work?

    I'll be new to the GSM world when I switch to Cingular to get the 650, so please excuse my ignorance.

    So... I'm just wondering. Do gsm phones have anything like an ESN that's used in CDMA phones, or does the phone truly take on the identity of the SIM? Along those same lines, if someone were to steal your phone and then pop their SIM into your phone, would the carrier be able to track down who is using your stolen phone?

    Don't go and buy a phone. Visit a store and tell them you want a SIM card for an unlocked quad band GSM phone you have at home. Tell them you want the 1-year service agreement. They will give you a free SIM with your current GSM phone number. Now if you don't have a GSM phone number then they will give you one. Just make sure you tell them your phone at home works on 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 mhz freq.

    Something similar to the ESN is on a portable SIM card. Advantage: you can pluck out and plug into another phone and everything follows. Even the personal phonebook.

    I am not sure what that means. I would say its bizzare. I am setting my sites on February as I did when I left CES. If it comes sooner as the B2B commission earning guys profess then great.

    After much alarm about the Cingular data plan, I decided to visit 2 of my local Cingular stores. At each store, I presented a unlocked Motorola GSM V600. This really caught them off guard. I enjoyed this a lot. At each store, they didn't quite know what to do. However, I was able to get them to agree to giving me a one-year contract, MediaNet Unlimited @$19.99/mo and a SIM card - for $18.00 total which a migration fee to Cingular from ATT.

    I feel okay now. However, there is still one question remaining. Does the 1)MediaNet plan limit browsing in any way because the phones it is designed for use internet-lite.... 2) can the EDGE data speeds be accessed through the MediaNet service. I think the 100thMonkey will know the answers to these questions.

    Finally, I would like to say to all GSMers. hold on....Cingular may roll out a new data structure specially for PalmOS. I think we should start firing emails to the B2B guys working on commission. They should know that they are going to lose market share in this space if they don't conform and become more competitive. Hmm...T-Mobile, an unbranded Treo 650 and WIFI hotspots might start looking better to some of us.
    1. I have never found a limitation but, I have heard ther was some VPN port blocked or something if you are into VPN. I think I have a way around it but have yet to get the 650 to try it.
    2. As far as I understand from my rep, they are not limiting EDGE in anyway, if you have data, you have EDGE.

    Your right 100th Monkey may hav more particulars than I. I just have been with Cingular for years, so I know that even if they do change this, they will flex.

    Very good insight. Thanks.... What's the worst that could happen? I'm moving forward with the $19.99/mo.

    How will you integrate your GSM Treo 650? The following is partly how I plan to integrate my GSM 650. If you are a stickler for "off topic" then stay "on topic" and read the next post below this. My goal to achieve by March 26, 2005.

    BMW-Well it will be darker blue I think. Thanks!

    Oops! Big slip in schedule. When specimen38 abandons January, can Spring be far behind?
