    I know this is premature but I am getting very anxious about the lack of T-Mobile announcements regarding the Treo 650 availability. At least at the Roadshows we know that Cingular/ATT will support it and I will probably switch to Cingular/ATT (for the discount and other reasons) to get it.

    In the mean time, I have ripped verizon's Treo 600 online petition for use for T-Mobile's Treo 650. Please change what needs to be changed before I post it online.

    Thank you for your help!!

    This will do nothing to raise any interest at T-Mobile. I wouldn't doubt that TMO is sitting back and watching the fallout from the Sprint release. Keep in mind that TMO had it rough with the HP6315 release and I am sure they don't want a repeat of that on their hands.

    Thanks for your thoughts gary. If you have an alternative solution, please do tell. Otherwise, I invite everyone to sign the petition nevertheless.

    thanks,

    Buy the worldwide GSM 650 for $799 and don't wait for T-Mobile. I had the 650 GSM model for a week and I sent it back. I now have a PDA2K and have my T600 as backup, just in case.

    Where did you get it for 799. I did not know the GSM was out? Why did you return it?

    I was in a tmobile store shortly after the roadshow to confirm i could activate the device on tmobile's network with data services. after a phone call to their tech support the local tech confirmed that they have successfully tested the device on their network and it would be fully supported. This isnt to say tmobile is rolling out the phone any time soon, but this seems to indicate it will happen sooner rather than later.
    and, fyi, in the order confirmation for the roadshow version of the gsm phone, it's listed as unlocked - for use on AT&T, Cingular, T-Mobile, etc

    No offense but I don't believe you. You could have had the Treo 600. Where did you get this from? I'll buy one from them right now!

    I asked for an alternative and doesn't exactly sound like a reasonable one, Gary. Man, $800? I realize that T-mobile may take awhile if at all but I think the impetus for having an online petition is to ensure further support whether it be offering the Treo 650 to technical support. Even if I buy a GSM branded unlocked Treo 650, it would be nice to know I can call my provider later down the line if I needed technical support over the phone which I happened to have done recently.

    This type of support was pretty cool to have with my T-Mobile Treo 600 purchased directly from Palmone. While I got it eventually replaced free under warranty directly from Palmone, I could have had a similar replacement from T-Mobile for only $25 with trade in. Not bad if you ask me.

    Anyhow, I encourage you all to sign the petition.

    T-Mo will support whatever phone you can use on their network. But buying it directly from them won't make a bit of difference to anything. As to buying the 650 for $799 - they haven't announced any prices yet. Be patient, grasshopper.

    Agree.
    I refuse to pay $800 for a Treo 650 GSM.
    I want to get this device but if T-Mobile is reluctant to carry it, my wallet will sanction them; my contract expires at the end of December and Cingular is calling me already

    Since there is no news of a 650 on GSM this is higly unlikely at best.
    Sound to me like trolling, which is not allowed here, do it again and you are banned.

    When T-Mobile finally releases the 650, will it likely be full featured - i.e. with all 4 bands? I heard they blocked the 850 band on some quad-band phones.

    An alternative is to buy from Cingular / AT&T. The current problem may go away as Cingular and AT&T become more integrated, but as of today AT&T will not provide sim unlock codes. A Cingular phone I had a couple of years ago disabled menu settings to change internet parameters.

    I would like a full featured 650 without having to worry about changing the firmware, etc. and without spending $700.

    .
    Do they change it on the phone? how so, with a bios flash? If so I wonder why they put the effort in?
    More likely they dont have any basestations on that frequenty..

    I don't recall where I read this - I think it was a flash that disabled the 850 band so it could be restored. I would rather have to not modify the phone to avoid any support issues.
