    just wondered what you guys think about buying a spare veer since it is an end of life phone according to HP. I can get a nib veer for $50. If my wife drops hers (just signed a 2y contract with ATT) then we would have to try to find one on ebay, etc. Not sure how easy that would be in 12 months or so.

    Considering how small the phone is in my hand and that I have already dropped it 2-3 times, I can see the wife dropping this phone at some point.

    Anyway, just wanted a few opinions

    thanks

    Do it.
    It's only $50.
    I think it will be dunked into a glass of pomegranate martini sometime in its lifetime.

    I've done it, bought a spare. Pretty cheap insurance policy.

    Dang. Did I miss the boat? Hp.com shows $99.99, doesn't indicate unlocked, and is out of stock.

    got mine from the phone rep that sold me the touchpad during the pre-sale. He said yesterday morning he had 13 veers (before I bought one)


    PM for his e-mail address if you want it- I have no reason to think he gave meal a deal- at least he never mentioned that it was much less than the on line price.

    I picked up one as a spare as well and consider it as insurance.

    I have a spare on the way. I'm rocking the pre 3 currently but already have the black veer and a white one on the way. For so cheap its worth having a couple of them that could last me a year or two.

    -- Sent from my Palm Pre3 using Forums

    I've ordered one too. Just one clarification...they are not unlocked, I've talked with the sales rep and for him "unlocked" means that there is no contract with AT&T. If you look at the order confirmation email you will see that they are AT&T locked, but without contract.

    I couldn't find one on hp.com, so I ordered one from eBay as a spare.

    I wanted to order one but I have 3 pre's, one more for my daughter, one veer and a touchpad. My wife will freak when she sees another palm product in the house.

    edit....just bought a touchstone for the touchpad.

    it seems ,according to others, that HPs 'unlocked' means without contract on ATT.

    I am sure the phones are gone now cause a bunch of folks have pm'd me. I am already on ATT so whatever they want to call 'unlocked' is ok with me. I just wanted a spare phone
    just in case.

    Well, HP SMB sent me a shipping e-mail earlier, now they sent me a e-mail that my order for the black HP veer has been delayed.

    Probably doesn't matter much with the free unlock coming soon
