    Geez Perry, with 5k under your belt, I felt like a fraud when Curly lumped us both in the "Post *****" category ... why, I'm a mere Brooke Shield's character from whatever her breakout movie was called .... Something Baby ?

    Ok, back on topic...

    Cardio, I have to ask because I now ask of everyone who has a "source." Who was it? We either have to be able to verify the source or toss it in the heap of "we don't know that to be fact." Which is getting to be quite a landfill.

    Landfills can be fun.

    I agree, to a certain point gharrod, to your stance on sources. If they cannot be verified -- they are just that -- unverified information.

    However, at what point, do you start to get a feeling -- that there might be something to all this unverified information?

    You have me saying it.
    Now Cardio and others.
    1 more person?
    10 more people?
    100 more people?
    1,000 more people?

    And I am not just talking drive by shooters. I'm saying if those numbers included the long time members who you would not expect to be pulling your leg.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Let me call Jay before I post his contact infromation. I don't think this info has any secrecy to it, but don't want to ruin a possible contact for future use.

    Perry, it is simple. One named and confirmed source (as in the case of Doom) is worth more then 10,000 rumored (my Sprint rep told me) sources. Let me ask you how many of you would question me if I came in here and said I had an unimpeachable source within Palm or Sprint who told me point blank that there is no 700P(hantom) in the system? I would dare to say you all would want to know who I spoke with and how they figure into the equation.

    So all I am asking is for the same courtesy that I would be expected to provide. Verifiable information so it can be tracked down. To date (7 months now) no one has come forward. I consider this to be overwhelming evidence. If I am wrong then share the information with me. I have even offered they can PM me and I will not disclose publicly the source but will verify it privately. I am asking to be convinced and no one has taken the challenge.

    Is that such an unreasonable request?

    Not unreasonable, but I would not take any lack of accepting your challenge as a lack of believing in one's sources. As I have stated previously, I will not disclose mine to anyone -- before, during and after.

    Hey Doom!

    Would you mind PM'ing me Sal's email address and pre-warning him I am going to write him? I would like to know his take on the beta's we have seen, n4cer's document and source confirmation that it went to Sprint stores, and the fact that folks stating they were beta tester's are claiming they have turned their phones in and are waiting for their free "reward."

    Any possibility in this?

    Cheers, Perry.

    I got tired of waiting on the supposed "truth" from you guys...so I stopped off at the Sprint store today and asked my favorite sales rep what the scoop was. I was amazed when he pulled out the new release from under his desk...Here's what he told me and he showed me a device as proof:

    * 700P does not exist
    * Surprise Sprint release of a 750P on June 1st
    * Will come standard with 128MB of memory
    * A mini-audio jack to VGA converter allows external video

    I'm offering total proof that this is the absolute truth by attaching an actual photo of the device in the hands of my Sprint rep.

    I'd like to see his reply too. But, I think if Sal is towing the line here as a corporate guy then he is just going to reiterate everything he told Doom to you. Then he'll deny all of your "evidence" as real or even something Sprint will admit to knowing about. He may even say they might sue Palm for using their logo on a device without their consent. It's a tough one to push, Perry...might be better served just waiting around like always.

    Think you're pretty funny don't ya? I've showed my proof of the Nextel i700p in my avatar and I still didn't get my BB card...nor the Starbucks one dangled out there. I'd prefer the Starbucks myself but I'll take what I can get.

    EDIT: Whoo hoo...I've reached 50 posts y'all. 50! I'm one one-hundredth the man Perry is. and something like one one-thousandth of insertion. Oh well...I dream can't I?

    Come on now, come up with a new punch line. That picture is worn out, it was funny the first 50 times, cute the next 20 times, expected the next 15, but now old and worn out.

    My point exactly. It's a tough push and that does not make Doom's source any more valid than mine. Doom's source has "confirmed" what would and should be a corporate line. Source's that have confirmed what would be big trouble for them -- have confirmed otherwise.

    We are between a rock and a hard place here. As gharrod has said about me: "I do not doubt Doom and this is what he was told -- but I have no way of knowing if the man was being straight with him -- other than Doom's word on it."

    So you are right -- we wait.

    Cheers, Perry.

    LMAO - that's two in two days. You should have started posting a long time ago Spandex boy.

    Hey, wait a minute - that looks like MY area Sprint rep.

    JimmieGeddes posted the prices of the 700p per his source, either in this thread or the other. I think he said Sprint would have the 700p for $649, $499 1yr, and $399 2yr.

    These numbers certainly make sense. Because of my hopelessly broken 650, I made some rumblings to Sprint about leaving them. They offered me $300 off of the 700 if I re-up my 2yr plan. Plugging in Jimmie's numbers, Sprint is really just giving me an extra $50 off which is more realistic and jives with the source.

    So wait a minute...they (Sprint) actually (supposedly) admitted or offered information about the 700 to you?

    Not really. She knew a 700 was coming, but did not know if it was W or P. I told her the P was coming. When I followed up later, she is actually giving me the $300 credit on a 700t which, I'm hoping, stands for typo.

    Verbal conversation 4/21/06 with Customer Accounts & Relations. Oh yeah, she's also waiving the $18 activation fee on the new Treo.

    She had NO idea when the 700 (p, w or t) would be released.
