    As far as doing it on the 650, it should be easier than flashing the whole ROM (although that will have advantages as well), it should just be a matter of a few files at most.

    and all those cingular apps still exist....can't remove them @ all

    Yes, you can put any carrier's software on any Treo 600 GSM phones. I put AT&T's, Cingular's, and unbranded (aka ROW) all on the same phone. Which SIM the Treo is locked to is completely indepent from the software.
    All you do is us a program called tokenwriter to change the 3 letter carrier ID in the phone, then flash the update for that version. EG, chnage CNG to ROW then flash the ROW firmware update.
    The catch is that you do this with the Treo 600 firmware update that's on the PalmOne support site which re-flaxhes your ROM with the latest software. They released one for each carrier, so prior to an update being released this method was not readily available. The updates that palm releases won't update an already updated treo so there's a reset workaround.
    So if someone can package up the software from the unbranded into an installer, it should work to flash it to a cingular device and make it unbranded (it would still be SIM locked, but that's not the goal, which is to get DUN going.)

    Of course, if you can get that 1 file off the generic model and put it on the cingular model, then that seems like a much easier method.
