Treo 650 SIM tray causes radio to turn off unexpectedly

They have a new SIM tray they'll send to correct this. That support entry is for Cingular 650s, which is what I have, but other GSM 650s use the same tray.

Are you still up? Or getting up really early?

I wonder if our sleep schedules every overlap?

I crashed around 11 because I was really sleepy. Woke up around 4:30, was up for a while and posted that, then crashed again. :-)

Sim tray?

I have the 650 so I'm wondering wtf that is

Its the little tray which the SIM card - essentially what gives a mobile phone its number et al - sits in. You can see the top of it just below the SDIO slot next to the aerial of the phone.

Except I think she has the Verizon model with is CDMA and hence has no SIM. :-)

Ah, didn't realise that SIMs were GSM specific. I guess that CDMA works off the IMEI number of the phone then ?

Yep.

You have the Verizon model, right? That's CDMA and hence doesn't use a SIM. GSM phones have this neat thing called, IIRC, a System Identification Module. Basically it holds all the account info on a tiny card. So you can take the card and stick it in a new GSM phone and presto, it is your phone.

Yup, it's Verizon. Hence why the whole thing confused me... lol

Or, more usefully, get a SIM from a new phone network and use that in your phone to move a phone to a new network.

Hell, I've heard of phones which support multiple SIM cards so that you can have your phone on multiple phone networks at the same time!
