    I have been looking into getting a new phone for a long while. For a while I thought I would get a 700wx, then I thought I'd get a Q9m, then I thought I'd get the XV6800.

    My requirements are simple, must run windows mobile and I PREFER no sliding or flipping and for the device to have a touch screen. So I am now here:

    Motorola Q9c or Treo 700wx.

    As any frustrated verizon customer, I am sick of buying devices that are basically already obsolete. Which of these two would you pick? The Q9c has WinMo 6 which is nice and they cleaned up the look of it a bit.

    Any help is appreciated, also open to other suggestions.

    I just bought the 700wx. I like my phones to be hot off the press, but you really cant go wrong with this phone. I love mine. I had the 700p with Sprint almost 2 years ago. And I went back to 700wx.
    Treo 800w

    Agree....

    I tested the "palm 650 and 700p." What disasters. I only purchased the treo 700wx because of sero and the rebates. The phone cost $299 plus tax (out door connected). The rebates came in at $450. You do the math.

    My idea was to purchase the phone, get the rebates, then sell the phone... and purchase a cheap ($50 or less phone off ebay) phone to ride out my sero contract at $30 a month (business expense anyway).

    Something strange happened... I fell in love with the 700wx... and I found out that Verizon's marketing was great! Verizon had me thinking they had the best network.... rubbish... sprint is just as good... after this last phone update, I've not had any issues with a connection (before I'd have two or three dropped calls a month).

    700wx is a great phone and great business companion.

    Thanks for your replies guys. I went to the Verizon store to play with the WX since I haven't in a while. They didn't even have it on display!

    So you guys recommend the wx over the p? I admit that the Palm OS is nothing pretty to look at ( I'm all about the pretty ) but after kinda falling into a 700p, I've come to enjoy it's reliability if not it's good looks. I have yet to play with the wx. what are the advantages? Keep in mind, I hate Outlook, never use it - so being able to sync with it isn't a beni for me.

    Right now I'm stuck with a verizon 700p but switched back to Sprint. Thats what got me started here - trying to find a way to convert the phone - but I'm thinking I may just break down and get a Sprint Treo so I'd love to hear thoughts as to what is better about windows mobile vs palm os.

    Visor -> Treo 650 Cingular UNLocked (Cing. Blue Phone on Orange Network) -> vzw 700p -> VZW Centro (much better)

    700wx is stable... and can multitask... outside of that, go with the 700p.

    If you are happy with the 700p keep with it... many like me had terrirble experiences with the 700p but great experiences with the 700wx... some had terrible experiences with the 700wx but love the 700p.

    I say look over the board and find the many articles on the subject... search google, etc... IMO, it is a luck of the draw on the device you get.

    I know I'm not crazy when I saw my 700p reseting like crazy.... and I know those 700p lovers are not sitting around with a reseting 700p. So it was the device... My luck... I did get lucky with the 700wx. Way it is... not sure if either one is better than the other....
