    My beloved 650 was stolen, but that's another story. Therefore, I will be "upgrading" to an unlocked 680 or 750 when available but I've decided that I need another 650, new refurbished or used, in the mean time. It has to be an unlocked GSM and I don't want a Cingular-branded unit. Because I'll be shipping it to Miami and then on to Trinidad, I will have extra shipping and approximately a 20% customs duty to pay so I'm looking for the best deal out there. Can anyone recommend a safe and reliable vendor?

    Thank you,
    Keith

    PS
    I've noticed that the Treocentral store has refurbished units for $359 but that seems a bit hot...

    No one ever said Treo's were cheap. Even 600s are commanding a pretty good price. (Still have mine; make me an offer.)

    Given Palm's record, that could be a long time.

    Thanks whmurray but with an unlocked 680 rumoured to launch soon at about $425, I still think $359 for a refurbished 650 as a bit much.

    Anyways, I was able to get a trashed 650 for free. It is pretty beaten up and was stuck in a hotsync loop. I flashed it and now it works! I just need to get a new faceplate, screws, and stylus...
