    People are confusing January 05 (January 2005) with January 5th.

    It's January 2005 that the GSM unit gets released according to the chat.

    That's not to say that you won't get some support person looking for any excuse to get you off the line, and use your unsupported Treo as an excuse. But my track record with them on this so far has been pretty good.
    Sounds like music to my ears, for I will be one of the those buying an unlocked GSM ATT T650 from the NY Roadshow. Yipp-EEEEE

    Hmmm, imagine if I did ordered, and it is shipped to me sometime in Janurary 2005. That will be so hillarious.

    Let's do not forget that there are now only 2 GSM carriers left. Neither may carry it.

    (GSM) They don't have to carry it. Cingular didn't carry it when I bought my first Visor Phone, and 180, GSM Carriers don't have to carry it. I have bought from Palm ever time.

    ATT/Cingular will carry the phone for sure. T-mobile may not. However the Palmone GSM phones will not be sim locked so you can just put in your T-mobile sim. You can also use them overseas - Quadband so if you are willing to forgo the subsidy you can have a phone you can use the phone on any GSM carrier.

    This is not true for CDMA carriers where Sprint won't allow a phone that doesn't have a Sprint ESN on a sprint plan. This is a policy not a compatability issue - becuase you cant use a virgin mobile phone on a sprint plan even though they operate on the same network. Verizon used to allow other CDMA phones on their network (I read that this is not the case anymore - but they may still) but you cannot use the DATA services of sprint phones on Verizon. So a Sprint 650 is likely to be able to be run on Verizon ane even if you could use voice likely not DATA.

    Yeah, sorry... I misread the Live Chat the first time. Early Jan 2005 is the correct release date.
