    hi guys/gals,

    i was just wondering what the price of the generic treo 650 would be from palmone?

    also what are the advantages/disadvantages of getting the non-branded ones.

    the ball-and-chain wants to sign up with cingular because t-mobile service has been lousy recently.

    thanks all.

    The only disadvantage (which, may not be a disadvantage for some) is it will definitely cost more than buying one from a carrier - i.e., Cingular - b/c the carrier's subsidize the cost to get you to sign a 1 or 2 year contract.

    The advantages, off the top of my head are:
    1.) Bluetooth DUN should not be disabled (there have been reports that Cingular has disabled this on the Cingular-branded version)
    2.) It's unlocked - you can use it with any GSM carrier.

    My opinion, go with the unlocked version...
