    I currently have a Blackberry with unlimited data access from AT&T. If I put the SIM card in an unlocked 650, will I be able to access the internet (web browsing, email, etc.), or will I have to call AT&T customer support and reconfigure settings? My understanding is that internet access settings are stored in the SIM card, and it should just work by plugging the card in, but being a Blackberry I don't know if the settings are different. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I'd say you have to configure teh 650 so it knows what the GPRS settings are etc..

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    I am fairly sure cingular/att ties your data sevice to your esn number so that if you switch devices your data service does not transfer. I will test it out on a treo600 to check.

    I've used my SIM in two separate Treo 600's (one locked and one unlocked) and had no problems accessing AT&T data services from either one. So my guess is that any configuration info that AT&T needs is stored in the SIM.

    But how does email work? On the AT&T Blackberry, the email is name@att.blackberry.net. What would be my email ID and pop server name if I use a Treo 650 with AT&T?

    Z,

    You got me, I don't have a Blackberry. However, if you are able to determine the username/pw and SMTP and POP server names then you can configure a Treo email client to work with them. No doubt this information would be available on a Blackberry forum somewhere...

    I figured out the email id is yourname@mmode.com. You can go to mymmode.com and have web access to your email. You can also configure your mMode to retrieve mail from your other accounts, so you can "consolidate" all your mail in one place. The pop server is pop.attwireless.net, and the smtp server is smtp.attwireless.net.

    My question now is, how does the browser work? The mMode browsing is for wap enabled sites, and the Treo 650 can do much more - it can go to regular URLs. I am wondering if you can access regular sites on a Treo 650 is you are signed up with AT&T and their mMode plan. ($29 unlimited).

    For data (GPRS) settings you shouldn't have to do anything. On the Treo 600, when you put in the SIM, it would figure out the settings and you only have to select them from the list in the network preferences settings. With a T-Mobile SIM, it would have T-Zones, T-Mobile Internet, and T-Mobile VPN settings available even on a Cingular or unlocked Treo 600. I expect that the Treo 650 will work the same way.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680
