Hi, the subject says it all, I have a Treo 600 PDA and I LOVE it. Can it be upgraded to the Telecom XT network?

I am sure the Treo is charming, but with the current crop of IOS, Android and WM7 offerings its so last century. Time to move on

No.

You can't upgrade it, UNLESS you get a wifi module for it and buy a XT phone or a mifi/wifi XT modem thing and share the XT connection via wifi and connect your Treo to it. ;)

Ohh John, nice one.  You throwing down the gauntlet eh?  Just de-solder the CDMA radio and solder in a new 850UMTS Radio & sim.  And you would be away right? Tongue out

No unfortuantely. However it does seem the Palm Treo's do have a loyal customer base. There are many people I know who you had to pry the phone from their fingers before they gave it up.

@barTender/@johnr - maybe instead of PC Mods, the new thing to do is mob mods?
