Doh! Palm has pulled its software updates for the Verizon Wireless Treo 700p and Treo 700w/700wx after numerous customer complaints about connectivity issues. A statement on Palm's Web site says the update was taken down "... as a result of increasing customer reports of network connectivity issues following the updates. We are currently investigating the issue and will re-post as soon as they become available. The reported error displays 'Error 3000 - Data network is not available' when attempting to connect to the data network. This error does not affect your device or personal data in any other way. Thank you for your patience."

No word on when Palm will issue a new patch, but affected customers should contact Verizon immediately for a fix. I'm curious, has anyone run into this problem?
