    Anyone know where I can get a cheaper 270, and what do I do seeing that I already have a voicestream contract? Any retail stores have them, so I can get it ASAP? Also, PLEASE BEWARE OF A GUY ON EBAY WHO HAS BEEN STEALING PEOPLE'S ACCOUNTS AND LISTING THINGS LIKE TREO 270's FOR VERY CHEAP, i.e. $435.00. PLEASE DO NOT BUY IT. IT APPEARED THE SELLER I WAS BUYING FROM HAD 100 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS, BUT IT ENDED UP BEING A THIEF!! WATCH OUT MY FRIENDS.

    At present you won't get a T270 from anywhere - they are on shipment hold while they sort out a problem with the backlight - http://support.handspring.com/esuppo...ype=Spotlight.

    I suspect there will be no cheap sales while they are dealing with the backlog.

    From today's MSNBC (07-30-02):
    Auction fraud on the rise, some say
    Con artists getting more clever, vigilantes more frustrated

    Maybe we start the "Handspring Vigilante Squad"?

    I almost made the same transaction , but this post alerted me. I have contacted eBay , and here is what they said...:

    "Please be advised we have recently ended all listings for the seller noted above, as it appears the account has been compromised and used by an unauthorized third party. The account may remain suspended for a time while the incident is reviewed further.

    Wow, that stinks. I purchased my 270 on ebay without problems, but I arranged to pick up the unit and pay at the same time while on a trip that took me close to the seller's location.

    On Friday of last week, I saw 270s in stock at CompUsa, and I think they were a little less than the suggested retail, maybe 649 or 669 or something like that.

    Has anyone other than me noticed that when they post a reply to a thread, the forum doesn't always recognize that the thread has been updated? i.e. the last poster on the thread is incorrect, and the icon indicating a new post doesn't appear, yet the post is there?

    It happened with my last reply in this thread, which was the second time it has happened to me. Let's see if this post will update the thread... (yep, this time it did).
