The version that is out today is Sprint-only. It will onyl work on
Sprint or other CDMA networks. Theorectically the phone can be hacked
to remove the subsidy lock and you can take it anywhere you can use a
CDMA phone, but I'm guessing your service is GSM.

There ARE plans to release a GSM version of the Treo 650, through
Cingular. The rumor is this will happen sometime late this month or
early next. However, it loosk like it WILL be Cingular-branded, and
thus it might also be subsidy locked.
