    Now that the 755p is coming out, I wonder how this scenario will play out. If the 700p firmware upgrade comes in as expected later this month, I wonder how many people will be looking to "upgrade" their previous Treos this June...

My charging jack is screwed up on my original 650 from Jan 2005. They ordered mmy replacement earlier for free and told me I would most likely be getting a 650 refurb.

    I go back on Monday for the replacement. Not holding my breath for a 700p, but if I get one it would be nice. lol
    Techpricesse, is it a sprint authorized repair center or a Sprint corporately owned and run by sprint employees repair center?

    I feel like thier is no advantage to owning a 755p if you own a 700p except for form factor. I will just wait a year or two untill my 700p breaks and just get the upgrade to a 755p then.

    Not for me.
    Just had a 650 replaced with a 650 for a broken headset jack. That was on the phone. Then the replacement died within 24 hours. I went to a Sprint owned store and they handed me a 650 with out even looking at my phone. In and out in 6 minutes. He said they had about 80 650's in back. That would last them the whole summer. I guess I'll slip and fall on the ice in Dec to get a 700. They would have givin me a Q though.

    Last week they gave my wife an Up Stage after she lost her phone. She didn't have insurance and had been using the same phone for 3 years. I checked the website and they didn't even use her upgrade money.

    I can't complain to much. I paid $75 for a Treo 300 when the 600 came out and have "upgraded" thanks to insurance claims and broken phones to a 650 and it's never cost me another penny.

    It was a Sprint Authorized Repair Center called Let's Connect Cellular (they offer other phones besides Sprint/Nextel though). They called me yesterday and said my phone had come in, and it was a fresh 650, hardware revision B with the 1.13a firmware already loaded. Didnt have a battery or charger, they just swapped it out with my basic phone and I was out the door. Called *2 from the phone and after 2 CSRs who were gung ho on changing my SERO plan I finally got a lady that allowed me to activate it without choosing a new plan... I started making calls on it an hour later. Looks like brand new, sound is louder then my previous unit, so it works great but none of my 4 bluetooths want to synch with it!
