    SEEMS TO BE A FALSE ALARM!!!!!! My apologies...

    I got an email update just now from Palm, which is what prompted me to make the post. But unfortunately, it looks like their "email update" is just a load of bollocks and that no post-update update has been released at all.

    Very sorry for the false alarm!!!

    Looks like its here folks!

    When you click on Verizon at the link Palm provides it takes you back to
    We have temporarily taken down the Verizon Wireless Treo 700p updater as a result of reports from customers who have experienced data network connectivity issues after installing the software update on their devices.

    Nice of them to email us, so we could look at that 5-week-old page though, wasn't it?

    Yeh I just tried to download and I see that also.....

    Now why the hell would they send out an email to those interested parties, if there is no update?

    Do you think that:

    * The update is coming and that the email was a mis-timing issue between their web team and dev team?

    Here is the email I just got (Sep 19th, 11am PST):

    That email was like me teasing my puppy with a pound of bacon and then throwing it all away.

    No bacon for you!

    Palm has a bunch of IDIOTS running their company. I think what happened is the the update for Verizon Treo 700w/wx was released yesterday.

    Now, maybe they sent the e-mail for Treo 700p prematurely and haven't had time to update their website or they just made a mistake and sent an e-mail to every Verzion Treo 700 w/wx/p owners not knowing that they only have the w/wx update posted.

    Who knows. Sorry for the false alarm!!

    FWIW, I just did a "live chat" with a support rep on Palm's website, and he indicated that the update would be posted in a few hours.

    I've always found that when I sign up for any email notification, I hear about it elsewhere first. I think that's the first time I've been notified of something before it actually happened. Can't say I like that either.

    I got the same email, went to the site, clicked the link saw the same "duh, not available" message Palm put up on July 12!!?? grrrrr.....

    I should have come here first to learn about the bogus false alarm before I threw myself in front of that bus....

    Thanks Palm - love you lots!

    What I cannot understand is why Verizon continues its total wall of silence on the release of the 755? I'm ready to cut my losses and walk (run) from the 700P v1.10. I've got a favorable rate plan with Verizon and don't want to switch to Sprint. The customer Service at Verizon has always been superior.

    Why won't Verizon end the 700P misery and let us buy from them the 755?
  14. #14  
    I do not recall if the sprint version had the same issue, however the update is there for them to download.

    I called the MyPalm Support 800 number (888-7MYPALM) and was advised that the 700w and 700wx updates are now available, but the update for the 700p is NOT available.

    It sounded like the email went out to everyone, when it was supposed to only go out to the windows treo owners.

    The lady did state that it should be coming out by the end of next week... But who knows for sure. She said she couldn't promise anything.

    Hope this helps y'all!

    Sounds like the update will be posted a few hours later. Why on earth would you send an e-mail with a link and NOT have the update posted???!!!!

    Post the update on the website, then send the e-mail!!

    Well, giving Palm's history, I'll just do a wait-and-see approach to see how the update works before screwing up my 700p further more....

    It does on mine too. I did look though and the 700W/WX did get an update today that appears to mention the same fixes. THIS SUCKS if MS got involved and made them fix the W/WX and they leave us hanging in the wind.
