    I am brand new to the Treo world and plan on getting a new Treo 650 (Verizon or Sprint network). I am wondering how sturdy these things are. For example, if I have a curious 5-year old with slippery fingers, should I be thinking about equipment replacement insurance? Or do the Treo 650's bounce well?

    In my worldview, a Treo falls in the same category of products as
    the Harley Davidson Motorcycle - one-of-a-kind and loved to death
    by the people who own them, though ultimately not as reliable as
    it should (or can) be.
    Game over!

    Dropped mine several times. Other than a few scrapes, no ill effects.

    Of course it's always possible the next fall could crack the display.

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."

    To me the $6 a month is well worth the peace of mind on Sprint. Just think that your data plan is $6 more and the insurance is free. The data plan (with the $6) is still the best available.

    I've dropped mine a few times and no problemo except a few scratches. I have replaced my buttons and keyboard, though. The paint wore off of my 5-way, and my backspace key stopped working half the time. I've used it heavily for 14 months.
