Treo 650 modified

by Volker Weber

Remember the trouble I was having with my Treos #3 and #4, the last one being the worst? I returned it and with a simple hardware modification it no longer rebooted. What did they replace? The SIM tray. There is a new one out there and in the US they started a replacement program for Cingular customers. Compare the trays side by side:

I have no information whether Palm also replaces those SIM trays in Germany.


Looks like a small piece of sticky tape or something similar at the right place could help, too.

Yes, of course. You only need to make sure that SIM cards are not too thin to maintain a good contact.

Es ist immer das Kabel, wie du immer zu sagen pflegst, Volker.

Das ist eigentlich Stefans Spruch. In der Langform als Occam's Razor bekannt.
