    I used SMS yesterday with success. I sent messages to e-mails and phone numbers and received replies. I also made a long-distance call to a relative in Florida from my Manhattan apartment, and the reception was fine! So far, so good, Sprint!

    Before the whole migration to MO-SMS started last week, when I would turn wireless on, I would get the little musical jingle and then the Welcome screen would go off and that was it.

    Now, I get the jingle, but right before the Welcome screen goes off (at the same time really), I get a honking type tone for a very brief second. THis tone sounds familaur, I think it's the same one that you hear when you loose a call and you get the pop up with the network lost and have the "Dismis" or "connect" error.

    This new noise seemed to start when the MO-SMS errors started to come in. I wonder if it's a notification that the SMS line is live or something?

    Anyone else notice this honking/dull-beep that I am hearing right before the Welcome screen for Wireless on goes away?

    Thanks, Matt

    I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I am using a GSM/GPRS version with the 'Vodafone' network (unlocked treo) and was in London last week for a while and oddly enough my phone has now started doing the same beep sounds as you describe when I log in, even without dodgy firmware updates or being on sprint/T Mobile etc...very odd

    my firmware is 02.01
    software: Treeo 600-1.05-INT

    I'm wondering when they are going to release a firmware update for the unlocked treos...

    have you discovered what's causing that noise yet?

    Martin, Did this start in the past week or so too? Has the Sprint infected all the carriers (just kidding). So is that a coinsidence, or has it always done this and you and I are just now hearing it? I don't think the later, I have a keen ear and pick up on audio stuff very well (it's in my job).
    Thanks for the reply, Matt

    I had it awhile ago, I changed the preference not to beep when loseing the signal (I think that's the noise) and it stopped... ;-)

    I am a complete dumb arse....

    Right as I read your post, I remembered going into that setting a while back, to just see what it would sound like and I did select "ON".

    I just turned the "Servive tone" to off in the Prefs, under Sounds, phone tones and guess what

    NO MORE HONKING NOISE.....too darn funny...

    I need a plexiotomy in a bad way

    Thanks...little stuff like that bugs me, so now I know...

    Martin, lets hope that YOU can at least "save face", and it's a real problem. Mine was an issue with "error behind the headset" (see above post)

    Regards, Matt

    THANKS Mahootzki

    I upgraded to the new firmware and I am able to use SMS. It is about time.

    Any possibility that the treo 300 will have SMS capabilities? I mean, it was originally intended to do so, and the 300 does have a SMS program.
