prepaid SIM Card compatible with palm Treo 680?

by steffon4 / November 3, 2008 12:07 PM PST

I'd like to buy a Palm Treo 680 unlocked and put my ATT Cingular/pay as you go prepaid SIm card in it but I have read that this smartphone won't work with a prepaid SIM card . I don't know if it is true or a marketing thing but how come a Prepaid Sim card won't work if as a quadband phone, any worldwide SIM card should work?
Any explanation would be appreciated! thanks

There is no truth that you cannot use a prepaid SIM in any Palm Treo.

It's possible some features/services might not work...

...unless you had a post-paid plan, but that's another topic per se. The calling will work fine as long as the handset is indeed unlocked.
