    I called 1-866-CINGULAR a little bit earlier this afternoon and they told me that there was a problem with calls being dropped with the GSM version so they sent about 30,000 of them back to PalmOne to have it fixed (even before they fix it with the Sprint version). They aren't due out until March. We should start a thread called "What story did you hear today".

    Booooolcrap! Where are these people coming from? 1-866-CINGULAR (not 1-800) is their regular number, option 2 is to purchase a phone or service and option "0" just gets you an operator who had no idea what I was talking about.

It will give you back an unlock code and instructions. YOUR PHONE IS NOW UNLOCKED - THAT SIMPLE. Boy am I glad I did not hold out for an unlocked phone at $600 like I did with the Treo 600. Andrew said that Cingular is much more "customer friendly" and will unlock anyone's phone if they are planning on traveling and use a different SIM. Hope this helps.

    Still, smiling

    That is funny cause I just called them and a lady said Feb 3rd.

    Have to love this. I feel like Tom chasing Jerry and like Tom I fall for all the dumb stuff.

    Yeah I got the PUK number... I am about to call back and push the issue a little further.. Plus use my brother-in-law to try to find out what my unlock code is..

    PUK is the pin unlock key. It is an over-ride for a forgotten PIN or for a phone that is locked because of too many bad PIN attempts. What you need is the exclusivity lock key. Most CSRs will not even recognize this and I doubt that it is in their support.

    Actually, PUK is what you do after trying to digest all the incorrect info you get from CingUATT.

    Shadowmite, I don't mind experimenting with my AT&T T650 GSM if you want to give me some direction/instructions. Is it possible to extract those code modules, or do I need to install some utilities to examine them?

    That is pretty funny...

    Luckilly, my persistence (and their misinformation) led to a 650 at an unbelievable price, which I will confirm when I get home tonight (my $249 Treo 650 was overnighted and it was delivered today - pictures will be coming)

    It is funny how we are all getting completely different responses from ATTingular regarding this.

    Here are all the prices I've seen from other people and heard myself over the phone - keep in mind these are all ONLY regarding the B2B issue highlighted over the past couple of days
    $249
    $299
    $349
    $399
    $449
    $499

    and variations on what you had to do to get the price
    -nothing, they are just sending the phone
    -need to add a year to your contract
    -need to sign up for a new 1 year contract
    -need to sign up for a new 2 year contract

    and variations on what data plan you must get
    -no data plan needed
    -must add a data plan to your existing account
    -must get new account, since data MUST be the primary account on your phone

    It just underscores how little the Customer Disservice really knows.

    Read from a script, no experiance needed.
    HS visor Deluxe (Blue) & Palm IIIx ► HS visor Prism & visorPhone ►P1 T|T & SE T68i ► Tapwave Zodiac2 & P1 Treo 650 GSM ►Treo 680 unlocked ► Sprint Pre(-)►TouchPad & Sprint FrankenPre2 VZW

    I will leave Palm/webOS only after kicking, screaming and wrecking anything on my way out.

    - (Sigh)... It died.

    Thanks. I may wait a few days to see if they come off that price a little and to get a few more reports on quality.
