    How come they can talk about GSM Updates all day long, but as soon as a PRL update is mentioned it gets transferred to CDMA forum? Why aren't the GSM updates transferred to the GSM forum?

    I think the new one out is unlocked GSM, maybe that's why. The Cingular ones were moved to the GSM folder from what I remember.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    That still doesn't make sense. If its GSM hardware it should go to GSM to be fair. As I stated the moderators are prejudiced against CDMA.

    Yes, but the GSM forum is under "Service Providers". Maybe because unlocked means no carrier is specified? The only thing I could say is wait for the Mods to come by and read this. Their reply will tell you why.

    And does this post make you anti-GSM? This is the only upgrade that is provider independant (as far as I can find).. That is probably why it is not in the other forum..

    For the record, I am a Sprint (CDMA) user and it was I who suggested that the PRL thread be moved to the CDMA forum.

    The Treo GSM software/firmware updates are of general interest, as we less-fortunate-ones can study the features available in the new release and see what functionality and future problems we are likely to encounter when a similar release is available for Sprint and Verizon users.

    PRL updates are only of interest to CDMA users. Similarly, issues involving SIM cards are only of interest to GSM users.

    I am a more fortunate CDMA (Sprint and unlimited roaming on Verizon) user and see a prl update just as relevant to the 650 Hardware as a GSM update. I would like both to be able to continue in the same forum not to exclude one or the other. It would definitely make it easier to keep up with prl update problems just as it is to keep up with GSM problems, of which there are so many.

    A Mod killed my brother...

    Seriously, I believe the thread in question was moved by gfunk, who last I heard used Sprint. He must be a self loathing moderator.

    The GSM updates are actual firmware updates to the ROM of the device. The Sprint PRL updates are just network updates to Sprint's roaming towers. They are two completely different things and NOT equivalent. And yes I do have a Sprint Treo.

    But aren't all firmware updates supposed to be in the service provider forum rather than the smartphones forum? That's what the forum title implies. I have to admit all the various firmware updates in the T650 forum creates confusion for me since posters often omit their carrier and the great variety of version numbers makes it difficult to quickly determine post applicability. I don't believe there is any bias for one particular service but I do see inconsistency in monitors actions wrt forum areas.

    if anything, this place is on Sprint's d*ck. Most posters hate verizon as well as the fact that verizon was first with a new treo that kicks azz

    Are you on drugs? They only thing the new Treo has over the current one is EVDO.. Okok, maybe the RAM too, but I love my 650.. I wouldn't take a free 700w, except maybe to resell on eBay..

    And if you want a board that seems to only care about Verizon and the T700w, goto treo Addicts.. They don't seem to care about anything except the 700w..

    I think part of the problem was the Title of the thread was misleading. It at first didn't clarify it was only a PRL update and not a firmware update.
