    I think it's looking more and more like Verizon is not going to carry the Treo 600 (from reading different posts on this forum). Yes, I know that the CDMA Treo is dual banded and will work on Verizon, and that one could buy the Treo and bring it in to Verizon to be activated. I'm sure this would work just fine for voice. But I'm not so sure about DATA. Verizon uses a totally different system than Sprint's Vision. Verizon has QNC (Quick Net Connect), a slower 14.4 Kbs connection, and EN (Express Network) that has speeds about half that of Sprint's Vision. Both of these have to be set up differently. I'm wondering if the Treo will even be capable of this?

    Did they really not insert "Treo 600" in the specified place?

    Iíve been wondering the same thing. Voice should work on Verizon without a hitch, so the real questions are:

    1) will high speed data (Express Network) provision and work properly? If it wonít provision, but the settings are input manually to the T600, will it connect and operate?

    2) will sending SMS be possible? If the software is built specifically for Sprint, a send-capable SMS client may not be included.

    As far as EN being slower than Sprintís Vision, the Verizon website says: ďExpress Network is capable of data speeds bursting up to 144 kbps, delivering average speeds up to 40 to 60 kbps. You may experience slower data speeds.Ē That sounds very similar Sprint, it may be a 1xRTT standard, which bodes well for activating a Treo.

    Verizonís own content (games, ringtones, etc.) definitely will _not_ work on a Treo unless special software is included, but this isnít so terrible for a Palm-based phone.

    Just for fun, I went to the Verizon website using a relativeís phone account, selected the online Change Phone option and entered my (single band) Treo 300s ESN. The system took it without complaint. Granted, my relative doesnít have data service, so the system may not have been too picky, but it means that we could have a definitive answer to the Verizon question within hours of the first Sprint T600 shipping.
