    whats the difference with CINGULAR PALM TREO and non cingular treo?

    Hi all
    I am going to bid a treo 650 on ebay (I am from Australia).
    Just want to know whats the difference between those 2? Is it just the appearance? CINGULAR PALM TREO seems to be a bit more cheaper.

    Regards

    Wayne

    those cingular ones are also unlocked.. so I guess they are pretty much the same?

    I haven't looked at the auctions, but be aware that any US GSM phone you bid on should be QUAD-BAND - 800/900/1800/1900MHz, because usually US GSM phones are tri-band - 800/1800/1900 & only work outside N America on the 1800 band, because the 800/1900 MHz bands are US licsenses. Having both 900/1800 bands assures you appropriate coverage outside the US.

    I also know that it is EXTREMELY rare for Cingular to release the subsidy-lock on their phones, so it may be a refurbished phone in a Cingular casing.

    Usually, the lister will mention it was quad-band or a World Phone. Also, remember search engines are you friend. Do some general research on specific models and manufacturers for more insight.
