    Let me know. I have a 3-month old Palmone Treo 600 (Sprint), 128 MB SD card, lots of sofware, original screen protector still on,.......let's work out a deal.

    but treo 600 is an old machine with non replaceable battery.
    Isn't it a hard bargain to do?

    just curious.

    PPC-6601 is like 20x better than a Treo650... let alone a Treo600. Not sure why someone would switch back.

    I just ordered a Siemens SX66 (GSM version of PPC-6601) from my B2B rep at Cingular, should be here in 2-3 days. I want to give it a try, with their 30 day return policy I thought it would be good to see what everyone is talking about.

    That is because the Treo 600 still kicks *** of anything out there claiming to be a smartphone.

    People see the 600 they think cool
    People see The Brick, they think geek

    The Treo 600 might just be too sexy for you.
    I have detailed files.

    fan boy cheerleading aside.
    you do realize that Li-ion has shelf life right? (hence the comment about replaceable battery)

    There is a big difference between non replaceable and non removeable.

    There is not much will involved at all to change a battery. First of all, your treo may not live long enough to have battery issue. I personally have kept my unit fresh for an entire year by constant exchanges by PalmOne at the slightest hint of a problem. The last one is only a month old and flawless in appearance.

    The bottom line is: the Treo 600 rocks. I know because a) I use it DAILY in a very professional environment b) I have a certain basic degree of understanding between what looks sleek and what looks geek c)I know that first and foremost the smartphone needs to look like a normal phone in your hands d) I can do almost anything one handed easily which helps while driving etc. e) the treo 600 already does everything the T650 does including Bluetooth via an adapter

    Did I mention that it still looks a usable phone in a person's hands as opposed to a humongous brick especially with that tacky key board slipped out??!!

    I mean how many calls do these PPC users make in public???? 1 or 2 a month?? How can you possible call this oversized POS a phone with a straight face? A rugged, full featured PDA, Yes. But a Smartp-h-o-n-e ... HELL NO!!!

    Thus the need for blue tooth. People talk on the phone too much anyway they should be posting on TC.
    Have held one of these PPCs? They don't look that much bigger to me.
    I remember when the t600 came out, some thought it was like a brick.

    I thought I'd up the ante by offering a 270 for that any unappreciated 6601. My 270 is an original and therefore a collector's item. I Snap my mail and Blaze through the web every weekday and it locks up only once or twice a day. It does not have a replaceable battery nor an SD card; BUT, it also does not have memory problems, nor does it beep.
    You may be right; I may be crazy. But, the Treo may be just the device I've been looking for.

    So, how does treo600 fliy? Like a bird? Like a plane? like a glider?
    or does it float like ballon?

    I am intrigue, do tell. As far as I know all handheld phone flies like a brick and lands like a brick, give or take a twitch.

    Ah yes, but a MULTI-TASKING brick with enough memory to be smart enough to run it's core apps without crashing and resetting all by itself. And with VC, you talk to it and tell it what to do for you.

    Don't knock until you've tried it. You might be surprised.

    You gotta love those single minded, can't look beyond the still external antenna, Palm fanatical, Anything other than treo hating, can't be caught cheating on another phone, Treo loyalists. That's what I love love TC and makes this little world on the net go 'round.

    I to loved my 600 for over 10 months in an upper management, power user, road warrior, professional enviroment. But now after using your self named "Geek Brick" of a PPC-6601...I feel more like I graduated from the 600 to a new level of power mobility.

    I laugh at those that claiming they are looking for the phone to help them in their pro life, yet care more about if it's more geek or sleek.

    I said enough in other threads about how the 6601 compares to the ease of use, including one handed use, that you can just click on my name and click on threads started by me so see.
