    Just wondering what you did to your Treo 650/600 (or older) after upgrading to the 680? I still have mine and I'm contemplating on selling it on eBay or keeping it just for the hell of it. What would you do?

    I don't have a 650, but I can't bear to part with any of my past devices. I always say I'll sell the old device on eBay, but I'm to sentimental. I start thinking about all of the good times we had together. In the end I always back out.

    I usually sell my phones on ebay.

    BUT the 650 was an awesome phone while in Europe (my bro and i travel often) it'll probably become our back-up travel phone.

    I've got a 6230b around here i'll probably sell though...
    Now it's the WAITING GAME: a GSM Palm Pre
    T680 (COPPER) + Cingular = FUN!!
    My T650 & 6230b and NX70 are retired... =(

    Some of us may be using them for the trade-up rebate -- see this thread. I decided to go this route instead of selling it myself because my 650 has some case wear where a crappy holster had worn away at the finish. Since it was otherwise in working order, I figured $125 from the trade-up was better than nothing.

    In the past, I gave my Palm IIIx to my sister as a birthday present when I upgraded to a Clie N650, kept the N650 when I upgraded to an N7xx, traded in the N650 when I upgraded to a T616, sold the T615 to my brother when I upgraded to a Kyocera 7135, which I sold on eBay when I switched carriers and got a Treo 650.

    Now that I just upgraded to a 680, I'm taking advantage of the trade-up program, to reduce my over-all expense for the new device.

    Yeah I saw that trade-up deal in the Palm website. I was thinking about it too, maybe have two Treo 680, except the other one's unlocked. I just called Cingular to see if I can still get my 650 unlocked. If not, I'll consider trading it in but I gotta decide soon.

    Same here. I sold my year old 650 to a friend for $200.00 and bought and unlocked crimson from palm. No wait for a mail in rebate and no contract to sign with Cingular, also no need to change to the pda plan for $39.99. I get to keep my plan the way it is.

    I'm a happy camper :-)

    where is the poll?

    I'm probably going to give my 650 to my GF, i asked her if she would walk with it. She did not jump up and say "YES GIMME GIMME GIMME" probably because she doesnt know how good it is. But she did not deny it either. If she doesnt like it i will give it to my dad, or some of my friends to convince them to buy a treo themselves.

    Before my 650 i had a 180, which was totally trashed when i finally got the 650, so i placed it in the "electronics recycling dumpster" and it was disposed of in a green way.

    Before that i had a palm V, but i gave that to my dad, who didnt really use it for long. He probably still have it somewhere, but he doesnt use it.
    Neither did i, i did not want to carry 2 devices. So i love my treo.

    I used the $125 trade up option as my 650 was in poor condition. I'm a landscaper and that thing was pretty beat up. Bought the 680 unlocked as my Cingular contract is up in two months and I don't want to sell my sould to the mobile world again. No changing plans, just plug in the SIM and off we go.

    Well I just sold my unlocked Cingular 650 on Ebay for $219.00. I had a starting bid of $125 and "Buy It Now" price of $219. Someone grabbed it with "Buy It Now" an hour after I put it up for auction! Granted it was in mint condition, and I took great pictures of it. Also it was a relatively new (8 months old) replacement from Palm after the "P" key went soft on my first 650.

    I then bought an unlocked Copper 680 from Palm at our airport store in Atlanta. No messing with rebates or extending my contract with Cingular, so I also don't need to sacrifice my Media Net unlimited at $20 and change to the ripoff pda plan for $39.99.

    AND they had a special at the Palm store. They threw in a free of Zire Z-22 with the purchase of the Treo. Gave that to my son to replace his dying Sony Clie...

    A happy guy

    I do not think your poll has the right options.
