    Hello. I received this email from palmOne. It had a photo of the Cingular Treo 650. Thought I'd share it with you guys.

    Sounds like the "roadshow" for GSM/medical software. Maybe you can put in an order and get one in 3 months like the VC sprint guys did. :-)
    Ok, I can play doctor, can I go to?

    I guess this MUST mean there will be an 'offical' palmOne/Cingular announcment prior to this seminar on Jan 27th??? Keeping my fingers crossed for an unlocked GSM 650 from palmOne (to be used on TMo) before my birthday (Feb. 4th)...

    Not a roadshow--PalmOne and partners have held webinars in the past, including ones targeted to the healthcare industry. They did one about 6-9 months ago and gave away a T600 at the end. This is no biggie and should not be overemphasized. We all know that there will be a Cingular T650 soon-when it ships, it ships...

    Only one lucky participant will win the free Cingular T650--not one for every participant (read the fine print).

    I hope I am the winner. I've been fighting the temptations of buying a Blackberry. But the Treo will better suit my needs being that I am in the healthcare industry.

    I guess the long awaited GSM version should be coming soon (hopefully).

    I took a look at the Cingular plans because I've been a T-Mobile customer for about 3 years and I wanted to stay with GSM, but DAMN they are expensive!!

    Sprint has 2500 min for 115. At 2000 min that comes out to 92.00 (in order to compare). With this rate paln you get unlimited data and 100 SMS messages.

    Cingular has 2000 min for 99.99. Then you add unlimited data for 79.99.

    Sprint offers phone insurance that I'm not sure Cingular does ($5)
    Cingular offers rollover (minute insurance) that Sprint does not (free)

    In my mind these two features cancel each other out except that sprint charges so Cingular is a bit ahead here.

    So...
    TCO for Sprint plan @2000 min: $92 + $5 = $97/mo
    TCO for Cingular plan @2000 min: $99.99 + $79.999 = $179.98/mo

    This of course does not include taxes and such which will be the same for both.

    These are based on national rate plans in the Austin market. Seems like a really huge difference. Did I go wrong somewhere?

    You only need to pay $20 for Media Works with Cingular... They will try to push the other, because Treos use so much internet, but just say no and you can even go on the web later and add the $20 unlimited data plan.

    2000 min. My plan is for 350 min and I was thinking of cutting that back because I barely use it. Are you guys using these phones instead of home phones?
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!

    You are all putting way too much emphasis on this webinar event and any direct confirmation of a Cingular T650 release date. Don't be so sure. Just because there is going to be a marketing forum to the healthcare industry (yes, I am in that industry and was invited to the webinar [and have registered--would love to win a free T650]), does not confirm a release or ship date. We all know that Cingular will release a T650 in the (hopefully) near future. We all have seen photos of the T650 with the Cingular logo. They do not have to release their branded T650 for purposes of the webinar. The webinar promotes solutions that would employ T650s. The Cingular T650 could come out a week or 2 later (or longer). Orders could be accepted at the webinar (in fact, past webinars have been followed by direct marketing pitches for a bundle [Treo plus appropriate apps]), but not ship right away. We will all see...

    My cell phone is my primary business phone...2000 min is not really enough, I need 2500-3000 in reality.

    Where did you see that? The only info I was able to find on the website was that for any real mediaNET usage it's charged against your minutes (really bad for me) + $3.99 /mo

    I just got my sprint bill...and it turns out that the guy at the store just signed me up for 2 months of free vision but the normal charge is $15.48. Also they have an annoying bill one month in advance policy (never had these problems with T-Mobile...). This changes the TCO equation a bit:

    Sprint : $92 + $5 + $15.48 = 112.48/mo
    Cingular : $99.99 + $79.999 = $179.98/mo

    PS. Sprint charges 26.75 in surcharges and taxes. Can anyone confirm that this is the same with Cingular?
