    I found this on Sprint Users (see attached). Is this really anything new? If not, please close thread or disregard.

    Has anyone heard or read anything at ALL about Verizon carrying the 755p? Or is it looking to be a Sprint-exclusive handset (as I've always suspected)?

    Based on the return numbers Verizon supposedly got on the 700p and due to the fact that it took them SO long to jump onboard the 600 and 650 bandwagons, I would not be surprised to see them go to an all WinMob smartphone lineup from here on.

    SO tell me, what were those return numbers from VZW on the 700p? I can only assume you've seen them and have them handy, to base your assumptions upon.

    Sigh....

    I never claimed to have the numbers "handy".

    I just had 2 informal conversations with a long-time VZW store manager (with a regional VZW person present the first time) and we were discussing the relative merits of the 700w vs. 700p vs. Moto Q. The general concensus was that the Q was selling briskly but had a fair number of returns due to battery life & lack of a touchscreen. The 700w sold a ton initially but it quickly dropped off. The 700p had fairly strong & consistent sales to previous smartphone owners but also had quite a few returns.

    It's plainly obvious that Sprint has long been the staunchest supporter of Palm OS-based devices amongst all of the major carriers, based on their history of devices offered.

    Also, I would't rule out Verizon attempting to put some kind of "VZW" UI/shell on their smartphone products (that can be optionally disabled) to mimic what they've done to their dumbphone lineup. It'd be easier to go about doing that if their entire smartphone lineup was WinMob & BlackBerry-based (with POS being the odd man out).

    Both 700w/Verizon, 700wx/Sprint had 6 months exclusive. But 700p was released on both carriers at the same time.

    It's hard to remember so far back, but I think the Treo 600 was available on Sprint & the GSM networks at least 6 months prior to Verizon picking it up. And the same goes for the Treo 650 as well (if you look at Palm's support page, the intial 650 ROM version for Verizon is quite a bit newer than the Sprint one). In fact, Verizon's 650 had the NVFS bugs squashed in all shipping units.

    My guess is that most likely the 755p will indeed be a Sprint-exclusive. Or it'll have 6 months of Sprint exclusivity and then trickle down to Verizon, Alltel and the smaller regional CDMA carriers some time this fall.

    The REALLY interesting thing on the list is the Blackberry 8830 which is a CDMA/GSM model. !!Eleven!111

    That's 4 items below the 755p.

    I'm in a pickle because I travel. I have a 700wx on Sprint (main phone) and a 750 on T-Mobile (when I take a stroll down the GSM side of life). This new Blackberry would cure my international problems.

    Well, it would cure my problems if Sprint knew how to spell "Yerp" and "Frikka" and "Dubbuy" and "Inglun". Sheesh. I had MORE problems with my Sprint SIM on my last trip. I retired it and went straight to T-Mobile and everything worked fine.

    Technically, Verizon released it a few days before Sprint. Remember the user on this forum that claimed he had a Verizon 700p in his hands and no one believed him but it ended up being true?

    Thanks again Sprint

    I hope the train didn't leave yet, i'm officially on the Treo 755p bandwagon! I'm sick of my MDA, t-mobile just getting a warmed over MDA to replace it, and i have bandwidth envy with lil old EDGE on this ******* phone. God i hope EMC has an exchange environment (or maybe even goodlink!)
    Iím a lucky man to count on both hands
    The ones I love..

    Visor Pro -> Visor Edge -> Treo 180 -> Treo 270 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> T|T2+SE T68i -> Treo 600 -> T-Mobile MDA -> Treo 755p -> Treo 800w -> Treo 755p -> PALM PRE -> Palm Pre 2 -> HP Palm Pre 3

    Any chance for a Treo 755wx as well...or whatever they decide to call it?!

    I personally wouldnt be shocked if there was a 755w considering the badging of the 755p including the p portion which only happened with the 700 since there was a p and w version, but never happened on the 600/650....Id imagine if they were only planning to do a palm version of the 755 theyd just call it a 755 and drop the p portion

    I think Palm is looking to drastically streamline their lineup and get everything unified under similar hardware:


    POS
    680
    755p

    WM
    750 (runing WM5 now but refreshed w/ WM6 later this year) w/ 240x240
    755w (running WM6 from the get-go) with 320x320

    I think this fall we'll see 2 new models---a WM-based "Mercedes" flagship Treo Palm hinted at earlier, maybe with 320x320 or 480x480 and integrated GPS as well as the first Palm-on-Linux model which will be a larger, almost tablet-sized device.

    The time must be near... and for now, the 755p is still up there.

    Frustrating news for those of us waiting in vain the last year for some firmware support on the 700p.... but news nonetheless. Thanks
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.
