    UPDATE - I called Verizon who called Palm and Palm said there is no difference between the 2 versions. Palm said that when Verizon came out with software update 1.08, it was to coincide with hardware Rev B.

    I have to make a choice between two 755p phones. One has hardware revision A, the other B. Does anyone know the difference between the 2? What I mean by "Rev A" is what you see when you enter #*#786# on a Verizon phone.

    Thanks. thorne

    On these forums, I have read that some people have had better luck with Rev B. That is not to say that there aren't some perfect As and bad Bs, but the impression I got was that, overall, the Bs were a bit better. I have six 755ps in circulation at my office and I have had both problems and no problems at all with both types.
    3 Sharp Wizards (who can remember the model #'s anymore?) -> REX -> PalmPilot -> PalmPilot w/1 MB Upgrade -> Palm V -> Palm Vx -> Palm m505 -> Treo 90 -> Treo 600 (Sprint) -> Treo 650 (Sprint) -> Treo 700p (Sprint) -> Treo 755p (Sprint) -> Centro (KB & Batt too small) -> Treo 755p & Black Centro

    rev b's are physically faster at doing things like changing applications. I did a fresh test after hard resetting my rev a and my dad's rev b, and his pwned my 755p badly. that being said it doesn't have any extra features, it just tends to work faster.

    I just got a replacement from Palm for a Verizon 755p where the camera developed a serious case of myopia. The replacement unit is Hardware revision B with the 1.08 ROM pre-installed.

    So far I'm finding this Treo a little perkier than the unit it replaced.

    Of course, it could be my imagination, and there could have been other things wrong with the Rev. A phone it replaced besides the camera.
