    To reiterate other threads, this does NOTHING for removing the subsidy lock on the phone. This sequence is to remove the SIM lock which is not the holy grail everyone is seeking right now.

    It's not totally gone, it will be $25 instead of $20 and not include SMS.

I have the 19.99 media works working 100% now and do not regret it at all !!!!!! P.S. You can put it on your current GSM plan now, then just pop out the SIM when you get your Treo650, I did and it went "VERY" smooth. No problems.

    I don't know what Rtalian posted but here is the news synopsis from the other threads:

    #1) Headline! The code you posted from someone elses post does nuttin' nada .... zilch as far as a subsidy unlock. It's a PUK code which has nothing do do with a subsidy unlock which allows any sim to be used. Do a search for PUK (not PUKE).

    #2) Headline! Also posted over the last couple days was that CINGULAR will unlock a 650. Don't know how easy it is to get them to do it, but it seems a couple people have had it done. This THREAD http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ad.php?t=72125 had some information but don't get excited, you need a special 8 digit code. Eight zeros won't do it, it was only an example.

    More headlines at 11 after the local news.

    Dan Rather over and out.

    Love T-Mo
    Great coverage . Recently travelled from Denver , Phoenix ,SF, to Carmel CA
    Right on,....... 4 bars 95% of the time . Never dropped a single call.
    I played with sprint T650 for few days before returning and surprisingly the data speed were not amazingly faster than T-Mo -T 600 at least in my area.
    I do not know about EDGE.
    Remember you do not always get what is specified by the provider.Data speeds are a function of number of factors as Helpermonkey has explained in earlier posts.

    c. Go Sprint </shudder>
    d. other--suggestions appreciated

    This is a very personal and depends on a number of factors including coverage in you area , whether phone or data is you priority .GSM or CDMA
    If all providers have great coverage in your area ,
    than it does not make sense for you to stay with T mo.
    I would go cingular for faster data , extensive coverage, cheaper phone will let you compensate for expensive data plan.

    I second that. Internet works great; I use it to check the weather radar all the time.

    On another note, Does anyone have any experience with the paint/shiny coating rubbing off their 650's? I am wondering if a case with plastic coating over the keyboard would speed the erosion process (that kind of plastic easily rubs off ink).

    Well, you only had to ask me personally.

    I am with T-mobile and if it weren't for needing a quick replacement for my current phone that tied me into another year, I was on the floating un-contract.

    I planned to stick with them because the coverage in my area is really good and the data plan is quite decent.

    Then again, I have other factors to consider. My wife also has a line on Tmob and we share minutes. The tmobile to tmobile calling is our primary form of communication when apart. Which is free, so I wouldn't want to give that up anyhow.

    The major question you need to ask yourself is, how's Tmo working out for your currently?

    This is a tough choice (except the Sprint part).
    I would go Cingular, at least for 30 days, get MEdia Works while you know you can.
    Get a better price on the phone.
    We'll get them unlocked, that is for sure. (Don't go Blue)
    You truly be amazed by the speed of EDGE.
    I am truly happy with Cing/Orange.

    I remember the 100thMonkey had a suggestion about how to do this months ago, but I don't remember. It is in the "I will wait for GSM thread"

    MacUser,

    I second cglaguna's idea. Be deligent in your resolve to get the best deal for 29 days. Mtreosexual borrowed a Sprint Treo for 2 weeks and was resolved to give it back. Just Do It!

    Why would you say that? Report back and tell us what is your experience has been. How about sending some pics? At the moment, you have 9 post. Wait a minute....This guy is a Troll.

    If he is not a Troll, he'll come back and offer constructive conversation to our dialogue.

    People with 9 post don't usually start off passively aggressive like that.

    Ok, you want oppionions? Here is my biased oppinion : GPRS sucks, EDGE is better - still slower than I would like, but GPRS is near usless on a device set up for web browsing and emailing videos taken on the camera. Also T-Mobile _ I am not a customer, and never have been, but I am not impressed with what I have seen of they abilities over there on a technical level, in fact I was very unimpressed... anyway, do what works for you. If you switch, it is not as if your wife could not switch and get free calls again between you too.

    P.S. I am a Mac user too, good to see I am not the only one

    Thank you all for the constructive advice. For the Cingular people, is there any advantage of ordering online over going to the Cingular store in the mall? I am guessing by going into a store, I can get the MW package for $19.99 unlimited internet, which they claim is still available as of Sunday. My only concern is that the mall Cingular didn't have any 650's in, thus I may not be able to get one before the 10th.
