    Is there a way to brick a Sprint 700p on purpose short of throwing it into a Microwave?

    Get the update on Palm's site. While the update is running on the Treo, take the battery out.

    Why do you want to do this anyway?

    Try banging it against your head repeatedly.
    I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!

    Why? I can think of at least 1 reason why I'd want to do it. Ever take something in for repair, and not be able to duplicate the problem? Tech says it's fine, you get home, the problem still exists.
    I'd brick mine in a heartbeat if I got sent home with a sometimes faulty unit.
    Not 100% legit, but pretty darn close.
    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    I was trying to think of legitimate reasons earlier to brick a Treo. That came into mind, but people will still say to suck it up and just buy a new one. The OP didn't give a reason why he wants to do this.

    Then did you possibly jump the gun with the "automatic ban"?

    Does it matter? Do you want me to delete that post or something? I wasn't asking them to ban you. I wasn't asking them to ban anyone.

    You know, this is the reason I don't post much here anymore. There are too many people here now that just want to argue or start something over nothing.

    Funny, I was thinking of that today at work. I couldn't agree with you more.

    That gave me a good laugh. At the risk of being argumentative, it certainly sounded to me like you DID ask "them" to ban the OP, and then you got offended when somebody simply asked why. Hardly an argument.

    I said that if someone creates a thread like this they should be banned. I wasn't asking or telling the mods to do it. I said that they should (if the person was asking so they could try and get a free upgrade, which I should have mentioned in that post). I was assuming the OP was asking this so that he could try to get a free upgrade. So far he hasn't responded yet to let us know why he wants to do this.

    For one thing, he may be hopeful of ridding himself of a post-MR POS 700p that doesn't do what it supposed to for a 755 that seems to do most things fairly well. In other words, make Sprint and Palm give him what he paid for. This ain;t rocket science to a fair-minded but increasingly desperate man....

    Then why did you even respond to the OP's question? You sound like you must be 12 years old.

    Did you read my very first response to this thread? I gave him instructions on how to do what he asked.

    I should have waited on his response first though on why he wants to do this.

    If you can't put up a good suggestion or a smart response, try not to respond. The OP is discontented with the product, give him space.
