If things haven't changed anyway, AFAIK you cannot use the tracfone SIM inside a Palm Treo, even if it's unlocked. The Palm Treo does not have the proprietary firmware/software required for use w/ the Tracfone SIM. FWIW, some folks flash (change the entire firmware) their tracfone handsets for use w/ other wireless carriers. You will essentially have to try another pre-paid service, such as ATT or T-Mobile (being the ones using GSM/SIM cards). If T-Mo gives adequate coverager, just walk into a T-Mo store- they will normally give you a SIM for their pre-paid service. ATT can be a mixed bag in this regard, but they offer both PAYG (pay as you go) and PYP (pick your plan). Places like Target/Wal mart sometimes sell one or the other depending on where you are located. More info on both here:
Hi there, I bought a new unlocked Palm Treo. It did not come with a SIM card. I have a prepaid Tracfone with a SIM card. I tried to put the tracfone sim card into the Palm Treo and it doesnt recognize it. I ordered unlocking instructions to unlock my tracfone from Remote Unlocks and they had to refund my money because they couldnt find a code for the IMEI connected with my Tracfone but stated that usually can unlock my model phone.
What can I do? Buy another tracfone and try to get that unlocked, and then try to use it in my Palm Treo?
Are prepaid SIM cards sold? If so, where, and would that work in my Palm Treo?
In sum, I'd like to use my new Palm Treo by prepaying for minutes. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks so much, Laura
