1 - The initial version of the Palm Treo 700p Updater 1.10, posted on July 12, 2007 incorrectly set a data connectivity parameter which may have produced an error when trying to connect to network data services.

The errors associated with this issue may include: "Error 3000" errors when attempting to browse; or "PPP Link Time Out error 0x1231" when attempting to connect to data.

The Treo 700p Update 1.10 was modified to properly program the parameter which had been incorrectly set. The update process on devices which have already run the 1.10 update should only take a few minutes. If the device was successfully updated previously, the entire update will not be applied. The updater will only run as long as is necessary to update the data connectivity parameters.
