    That's mostly what I have in mind. If I'm running off to the gym, or a rugby game, I can stick a small, inexpensive clamshell phone in my gym bag and not worry about my precious Treo 650 wandering off. This is one of the strong points for GSM phones - the ability to switch phones on a whim. It just looks like most folks here don't get that whim.

    I have a second 650,sold the 600,briefly last month when my original 650 stopped working as a phone,I used an old v60 briefly before buying a second 650 (after buying a life drive and intending to buy a second cell phone).I find that I take my 650 everywhere,even when going out-much easier that having to lug two devices,or a phone and a notepad.Of course I could always use the firm issued blackberry if I had to,but I much prefer the Treo,hands down.

    I have a treo pretty good phone if you ask me., I do have a back up phone for sure. the Motorola MPx 220 (can't give up my windows lol) Like some of the others when you just need something small i will take my 220 but since I bought my treo i have been using it a lot more the my 220. I know these two phones will hold me over until the gsm version of the Treo 700w comes out.

    I have a Motorola V600 that I use on a daily basis for non-business related calls. It uses the cell # I've had since 1998. I find it much faster to whip out my V600 and make a call. It also comes in handy when I want to travel light, such as going out to clubs. I would probably stop using it if I could have both cell #s in my 650, though.

Having a cell phone only is the perfect answer.
    Like the others, I have only the T650. No land line and no backup. Tried a land line for about six months. The only people that called it were telemarketers. It was an easy decision to return to the cell phone-only life.

    I have a backup Nokia 8310 (really tiny mobile!).

    I only really use it if I go mountain biking/ paint balling or some such activity. But it kinda hurts to leave my Treo 650 at home!

    I carry my Treo 650 only. My hubby and kids have their own cell phones as well. The only reason I have a landline is because I have a home security system that has to have a landline for alerts, etc. But, I never give anyone my landline number, just the cells.

    I find I'm giving out my cell number far more than my land line. You can always get me on my cell, but the home phone is hit-or-miss.

    I have a Sony Ericsson K750 that I use sometimes when going out.

    I've had my Treo 600 since October of 2003 but recently adopted a BB 7250 for work. Its a hassle to carry two devices around. Its more of a hassle when you realize you prefer some of the features on one device and other features on the other device so you become dependent on carrying two devices. Damn.

    I have a CDMA device. Unfortunately this is a benefit of GSM phones. :-(

    With CDMA can't you call and switch the phone number to another phone? I guess that is a pain but you can do it right?

    I sometimes would like a smaller phone for going out on the town... Only one Treo/phone for now...

    I work in some places that don't even want a camera in the parking lot. On those days the treo has to stay home and bring the old nokia that it replaced. I feel lost.

    I just have one Treo 600 but my wife has her Samsung from Sprint along with her BB for work. What a pain in the A$$ it is for her to carry two phones, two wall chargers, two car chargers and two headsets. The irony is that (IMO) they are both inferior to the Treo.

    Agree. I don't have another phone. But my next Treo will be one without a cam (hopefully).

    You know I felt the same way until recently when I found myself using my camera (not for pleasure since it's not a great camera) to help me out in some business situations. Still not sure whether I'll get the cameraless one or not.

    I have my old Motorola V400 but it hasn't been used since I got my Treo 650. I'll hang onto it in case something unforeseen happens to my 650

    When I was with Verizon I used to be able to do this, but thus far I have been unable to do this with Sprint. Worse, even if I could, Sprint requires that I use a phone purchased from THEM.

    I did find one person in a store that said they might be able to do it, but I'd have to extend my contract each time I switched. I finally gave up asking.

    It's all going to be a moot point come the 11th as I'm dropping Sprint anyway for unrelated reasons. (Sadly, I'll miss their rate plan.)
