    I had to open the housing 1/8th inch to remove the stock antenna and the same to insert the short antenna.

    Is that normal? I worried about that since I have spent hours trying to get pieces to line up when assembling a laptops and other small electronics

    James, in my Zoti-Short-Antenna installation experience, I found the stock antenna pulled out of the phone with very little effort. Insterting Zoti's antenna into the phone also was very easily performed (without the need to open the housing at all).

    Even though I still haven't received my antenna, I did try to take off the stock antenna for practice and James is correct. Not sure if it's for all the Treo 700 series, but you need to open the housing a little bit to get the antenna off on the 700WX. From what I'm reading, it looks like the 650s come out a little easier.

    700p/w/wx require you to open the case a little because there is a piece of plastic holding the antenna in. This was added to the 700 series to keep your antenna from falling out if your screw came out for some reason. The 650's did not have this added feature, so their antennas should popout without needing to open the case any.

Unless of course you have a Zero antenna and can't get it out....sorry....couldn't resist...just a joke....
    You're right, they never questioned the new antenna at all, except for admiring how it looked on my 650. I didn't even think of the potential problems!

    FWIW, when I removed the rubber stopper to take out the stock antenna, there was no warranty sticker to remove. I don't know if that's typical. I assume my phone was new (and not a refurb) when I bought it because the 650 was in a sealed box, had no scratches or signs of use, etc.---of course, I could be wrong. I got it a little over a year ago.

    Oh, I didn't notice we are talking about a 700 phone. The 650 doesn't require opening the case. The 700 does require splitting it a bit as it does have that little piece of plastic.

    Sorry for that. I'm trying to get my damn internet back and running.

    I'm sorry guys. Seems like some at TimeWarner decided to cancel my account for no reason and I can't get online or check emails.

    I already have a backlog of orders and will start shipping again when they fix my internet service.

    I can get some of the emails but I cannot go on my website and print the orders.

    Sounds terrible. Can you let me know if my replacement antenna has shipped? I contacted you on Monday about my top falling off.

    I did the fix for the gap and the fit is great now. But I got some glue on the top of th cap. I ended up sanding the entire cap with 2000 grit paper and it looks great. It made it slightly lighter and I like it. Sprint blue antenna.

    All you have to do is put 4 small drops like in the instructions. It will spread evenly when you put the base in the cap.

    I know it's a long shot, but does anyone know if/where I can get a replacement rubber plug for the screw hole? After installing my antenna I put it back in, but I guess I didn't push it in far enough. After walking around for a while I noticed it had fallen out.
