    Actually more like from a dial up modem to a cable modem. To me, connection speed is far more important than OS.

    My companies VZW Biz Rep has been with them a long time and told me last night he fully expects the 650 to appear in 8 weeks or so. He said they will only release it with the memory fix (and a few other bugs fixed), but he was fairly certain that Palm addressed those issues before they would even accept it for testing. He had no news that VZW decided not to issue the phone. He has always been accurate in the past with me on releases, etc.

    Lets hope your contact is correct. I for one would be all over that & a happy camper. For my location, Verizon coverage is king!!!

    Here, here! I agree, let's hope VZW offers a bug-free Treo 650.

    I don't know how much longer I am willing to wait. I have been with Verizon forever, and would like to stay that way. In the areas I travel Sprint seems to be as good as Verizon. I said back in December that I would wait until the end of March. I am willing to wait for a firm date in March, but I will do something. I hate to go to Sprint, but for me it is making sense.

    I need the IMAP, and the screen resolution and the camera resolution are the thigns I feel I need for the T650. I can adapt bluetooth to the T600 and I now see that there is an IMAP client. If they have a T600 with better resolution... I might be there.

    OK, I indicated to my company's national account rep that everyone is quoting their reps and the feedback has been very inconsistent. I did not mention what anyone was saying as I did not want to bias his reply. I asked for his honest opinion on when the 650 will be available and whether it would support EVDO..... here's his very brief and rather disconcerting response....

    "the 650 will not support EVDO and we don't have a firm release date at this
    point. Keep checking in."

    so don't anyone hold their breath....

    Now that's the most accurate statement I'v heard yet.

    Until it supports EVDO, they're not going to release it. Call me Karnak.

    I wouldn't put the blame on VZW. Put it on Palmone. If they want to survive, they have to move faster.

    I'm all about patience... I've got 2 young kids. But my patience is wearing thin. I am still in contract till 11/2005 w/ VZW, so if no news comes by then, I may evaluate my options then, or I may just go month-to-month and be in the drivers seat!!!

    I had a long conversation with Tech support today. He claims that 650 is not due soon. I am about to exchange my 5th 600. They will send a new one this time.

    Here's more to add to the discussion. The following is from the Treonauts blog:

    While there's still no official word as to when (or if) Verizon will release their own Treo 650 some sources claim that an early April release is likely. At any rate, Verizon will hold a press conference on the 14th of March at the coming CTIA show in New Orleans and it is anticipated (more 'hoped' than anything else) that they will make their Treo plans known then.

    There's also a couple of lines about the T650 and EVDO:

    Although again we won't know for sure until the official Verizon release, the Treo 650 should fully support EV-DO connectivity...

    We all know how rumors are, but it gives us something to think about, I guess.

    I visited the local Verizion Store on Friday, and tried to find the most experienced "Sales Specialist" on the floor. The gentleman I talked to knew of the 650, but didn't know of any future plans for its release. He said he typically knows of products about 1 month before their release.

    And thats when he started doing his job of offering me the 600 or that Audiovox with the slide out keyboard (BTW good luck pressing those keys). All I could say was "Show me a 650, and we'll talk.................." As you can see, I'm quite the hard negotiator. <thinks in his own head> [/fantasy]
    Somebody....anybody........................Don't let Dr. Doom spill his Kool-Aid on his brand new "perrywinkle" sweater vest!!!

    Verizon customers know that one gets a wide range of responses when asked about upcoming releases. I had a CS rep over the phone tell me that they were going to carry it for sure and that he himself was waiting for it. Another time I asked I got a similar answer to what ButtUglyJeff got, but with a much more annoyed tone (clearly this man has been asked this one too many times). Ultimately, I guess we all have to admit that we really have no clue what is going on and just go on these boards to discuss what we wish would happen. C'mon 650!
