    Yes. I'm using a Treo 650 on Verizon. I converted a Sprint Treo 650 to do so.

    I'm not sure when a Verizon branded Treo 650 is coming out. There has been speculation ranging from next month to never.

    I converted a Sprint to Verizon by getting a cable on ebay and following the software directions... not hard... works great

    This is my first post. I was about to purchase a 600 last year but a 600 owner old me to wait for the 650. I waited and waited for Verizon and so far as you know nothing. I tried after reading so many threads on here to just call verizon myself. I spoke with a lovely lady who told me after checking with two separate departments that Verizon is definately NOT going to carry the treo 650. She did however say that the reason was because they have other PDA options in the making for the future. I will wait one more month then convert a sprint to verizon. I live in NYC and verizon is the only good option.

    Guys/Girls-

    Just as a tip. If you're converting Sprint Treos to work on Verizon's network it is much easier to use a serial cable (provided your computer has a serial port) than a USB one. There are no driver issues with serial ports and the process is really quite simple. However, if you do intend to do the converion yourself make sure you are deliberate and extremely careful.

    We have a business account with 4 treo 600's on the plan, and my 600 has been acting funny to the point that my rep suggested that they replace the phone. He said that if I could wait 30 to 60 days, I could get a 650. This was about the middle of Feburary.

    If one converts a Sprint 650, newly purchased, then has someone like Illustrious convert it for them, will the conversion survive a hard reset? Does one install Palmone's carkit update, before or after the conversion? If the device is hard reset, can the carkit update then be reinstalled? How about Shadowmite's rom update(s)? Are those done independently of the carkit update or is the carkit update included in Shadow's rom updates? Also, will the conversion survive future pallm and/or shadow udpates?

    Sorry to be so confused and thanks much,

    Sam

    Yes, the conversion "survives" a hard reset. I have Shadowmite's ROM #5 and conducted a hard reset on my device. The original Versamail, Sprint BC, etc. icons did appear in Favorites and I just deleted them. Since the apps are not in the ROM anymore the icons are gone forever once they're deleted. It's a quick, less than 30 second process, to delete the icons. Then you're home free.

    You will need to re-enter your Express Network info in Network Preferences and, I'm assuming, any BT profiles, etc. Again, this is a fairly simple process.

    Main thing is that the ROM and (Verizon) programming are intact.

    Cheers!

    How do I then deal with updates on Palmone's site? The recent carkit updated, for example. Do I need to wait until Shadowmite integrates these in to his ROMs?

    Thanks much,
