    I have an unlocked 680 and use AT&T as my cell service provider. Is it safe to do the AT&T ROM Update?

    (I've had a number of annoying things happen with my beloved Treo, including it regularly shuts off/on the phone by itself (3 or 4 times a day,) occasionally locks when getting incoming calls, reboots itself spontaneously and it's latest trick is to sometimes freeze for about 40 seconds - and then suddenly continues onward (this happens a couple of times a day now too.) I have a lot of apps on it - and think a hard reset would help - but can't help wonder if some of this is ROM (bug) related too.)

    Thanks in Advance for Sharing Your Thoughts!

    My understanding is that it checks the software that is currently installed, so if you don't have cingular branding you won't get far.

    I do remember from Treo 600 days that there is a couple of things you can change to trick it and get it going - and I did see a message that someone had done this.

    However, I think you have a more serious software conflict or perhaps even hardware problem that will not be solved by this ROM update.

    Use the custom rom update that was posted here.

    Thanks for the advice rhawley & lisaw.

    It makes me wonder how long it will be before the unlocked ROM update will be out.

    In the meantime - what are the advantages and disadvantages for the custom ROM - could I roll back to my originial if necessary?

    Advantages are really just trimming apps out. And the ability to use the new firmware for the modem. It *feels* like the new firmware is better at handling the radio so there are less pauses. Battery also *seems* to display voltage more accurately.

    There is not a way to go back at this point.

    As far an unlocked update I am not sure if there will be one soon. Cingular->AT&T was certainly a major factor in this version.
