    I replaced the battery on my 600. But the phone only stays charged for 1 day. Do I assume that there is something else wrong with the phone?

    Phones are a lot like people. When they get old, they dont work so well.

    If not and you find a source for the wires you are talking about (plugs on both ends) let me know.

    I just did that - I resoldered the battery and it works perfectly.

    This is what I did:
    I got the PDAParts - battery - and I then opened my T600 for the first time
    and realized that I also have a REV C board with soldered connectors. Ouch ? No.

    I removed the glue and desoldered the cable from the old batteries side -
    and removed the old battery
    then opened the black tape at the new battery from PDAparts and there I
    removed + desoldered the white plastic connector from the new batteries charging electronic -
    ( yeah the 1 month battery warranty is gone - I dont care ) then i resoldered 4 little flexible wires to the connectors on the charging electronic - closed the black tape of the battery and
    mounted it with a double sided tape to the motherboard.

    the 4 little flexible wires then were soldered to the grey connector cable that still was there from the previous battery - then I mounted the housing again, charged the T600 for 3 hours and pumped my backup in and everything runs fine now.

    Not a big problem at all - from opening to closing the T600 - all was done in around 20 mins - so if you are able to and once successfully replaced a battery at your watch and lets say you are able to solder medium to fine thin wires you should be right.

    Regards Markus

    PS: thanks for the "old-credit-card hint" - worked perfectly for opening the housing

    Has anyone figured out if there is a place to buy the actual Battery Connector to be used with Rev C hardware?? If not, does anyone around here have a Treo 600 they want to sell for parts?

    How can I tell whether my Treo 600 is Rev C hardware? I need a battery to suit whatever it is I've got. Altho the internal battery is dead, I can still do things on the charger.

    (Later) Found it. It's Hardware B. I suppose that should be no problem in installing a new battery -- one without attached circuitry. Unless, of course, this replacement phone has had its battery soldered to the wiring.
