3 on treo

3 is [almost] the newest cellular network provider in Indonesia. it is a Hutchison Telecom International company in Indonesia.

when last week, my brother handed me a new "3" SIM card.
without any hesitating i plugged the SIM card into my treo650. and later to found out that the phone will receive 3 SMS from the network operator automatically the SIM card put in a cellular phone.
but to my surprise, the SMS didn't come and the SIM card is still unactivated.

So i take off the SIM card and put in Ran's Sony-Ericsson W80. after the SIM plugged in, the in a couple seconds, the SMS came. it turn out that the SMS is a trigger for the oprator to send OTA setting of GPRS and MMS.
that come to my question, why treo was not supported? or it is treo that's not suport the OTA.

an then after the SIM activated. i move the SIM card to my treo. and it works.
but i have to manually copy-ing the GPRS & MMS setting from Ran's phone.

there is one thing that amaze me. which is the customer service phone number stored on the SIM card, it is displayed on the contacts.
later when i remove the "3" SIM card, and put in my matrix card, the "3" CS phone number dissapeared.
cool eh?...
