Hello guys. After calling Cingular, AND PALM, I have come to you guys to help me figure this out... Here is the story

My palm treo 650 works great. everything is ok. Makes calls, sends texts and surfs the web. I was going to update to the newest software from palm for my CINGULAR phone... It has the logo and apps too... I go in and download it. BUT, I see that my software ( Treo650-10.1-VZW) isn't ending with CMD or CMA or CMG i believe it is. Which is Cingular. When I try to sync the palm to my desktop to update it, it says I can't b/c My "verizon phone" can't update. Ermmm Last time I checked it was Cingular. But the software is VZW, which is Verizon Wireless...

I called Palm and they said it could of been "flashed" to meet on the Verizon network. They say they might be able to get it up. They referred me to Bongo Wireless. I called and they said, " it is quite possible we can fix it.. For $75.00. " Well I'm a techie, so I don't like cheating if you call it that... Soo I ask my fellow techies. What are my options. ( i did a hardboot, and a softboot too) the software on it is Verizon defalently.
