AT&T and Rogers were the only carriers to offer the Treo 680 in North America; however for a more expensive price, you could get an unlocked GSM Treo that worked with any GSM/GPRS/EDGE network worldwide.[1] The Treo 680 was also available from many carriers worldwide including Singtel, Vodafone in NZ & Aus, Globe, Orange France, Swisscom, Telcel MX, Cable & Wireless (Caribbean) and Claro in Brazil.


It came in several colours: Arctic, Copper, Crimson, and Graphite. Initially, Graphite was the only colour available to wireless carriers, with the Arctic, Copper and Crimson models available unlocked exclusively through and Palm's retail stores. This policy was reversed in the US, with Graphite the only color available unlocked and AT&T along with Rogers selling the colored models. In other countries, unlocked color models were available.
