    Yeah I just called too. I might wait on the graphite one I have on order. Getting the educational discount too.

    I do admit that Artic looks good.

    Sorry gina77, I flipped out at the last second and decided to trade if for an Arctic before leaving the shop. :-) But I'd be happy to post pics of the Arctic one if anyone would like to see it.

    Gang, for those that are interested, attached are 3 pics of the Arctic Treo 680 which I bought this morning at SFO. There is a pic of the front, rear, and the Phone Info page.

    So I called Palm to cancel my order (after confirming that I could have a nice shiny crimson 680 shipped to me from SFO store)

    After speaking to a mindless CSR, got the manager on the line. She told me that I could not cancel my order because as of 2:20pm EST, there was movement on my order and the option had gone away to cancel.

    That said, she noted that since I was one of the first to order (11/21 at 9:16pm PST), it was likely that my order was boxed up today for shipment.

    She would NOT, however, confirm when the order would actually go out. Apparently the CSRs have been scolded for giving out false info so now no one will commit to any dates.

    I pressed for more info on shipment or cancellation (told her it was ridiculous that she could not cancel but could not tell me when it would ship) and she spoke to another manager, etc, and they said it would be possible to cancel but they could not guarantee since they would have to deal with distribution center.

    Here's to hoping that it's coming soon (at the end, she sounded hopeful without committing)

    PS the rep on the phone at SFO was super friendly -- if I didn't want my education discount, I would have called back!

    That is one thing that is nice about the unlocked version. Palm can put out software updates without it having to go through carrier approval.

    Well, I originally bought the crimson treo, which I really like - it's actually not that bright to me, and slightly metallic-looking. But I use my phone around the office quite a bit, and I suppose the crimson treo seemed too much of a "Look at me! Look at me!" device. I prefer to be a bit lower-key. So I ended up switching it for an Arctic before I left the shop.

    Ultimately, I love the crimson Treo, but I kinda felt like I was using a cellular "bat-phone". (see attached pic for the uninitiated).

    By the way, for those of you who are going unlocked but were worried about setting up the network stuff, when I popped in my SIM, it read the correct GPRS settings for Cingular automatically. I went in and changed the DNS numbers, of course, but everything else was preset. Not sure if this will work everywhere, or if it will work for T-Mob or in Europe, but it worked for Cingular here in SF.

    Still slowly syncing my data and apps a few at a time. So far, so good.

    LADY_TREO,

    any more Artic whites available? I get off work at 7-8 and would drive down to pick one up if you can hook it up. I left you a voicemail.

    Cannot wait... or i'll just end up waiting for my palm order.

    Mr. Joe, what DNS did you change and what sim card do you have? I think I still have the old 32k sim cards.

    I ordered from the SFO store. Now I'm wondering if I should've just waited, as there seems to be movement...but when I called this morning the CSR told me it was shipping in another week

    Yeah, they told me that too, but their stories have been horribly inconsistent. I wouldn't hold my breath -- if you've gotten confirmation from the SFO store, call up and cancel your order with palm.com!
