    I completely agree with Kurt on this. Whether it's because of our generally reliable corporate network or whatever, all I know is, I rely on my BlackBerry to get me every e-mail I receive within a few seconds of my receiving it, as long as it has coverage. In my work (at a daily newspaper), even pulling down e-mails every five minutes would be far too long a delay at many times of day. I love my Treo, but until some Treo version can exactly match BlackBerry functionality, I'm not giving up my BlackBerry.
    I concede that Blackberry has created a different class of email user and of course you are entitled to get what you want.

    I can't imagine using a blackberry or I'd be beeped or buzzed every few minutes. My personal work style doesn't require me to have my email elevated to page-like status. I like the current "escalation" hierarchy. People know that I'll see my email anywhere from immediately to a few hours after they sent it. If they want my immediate attention they can page (email to SMS) or call me.

    You actually get used to it fairly quickly. Probably 90% of the time my BB goes off, it's something that doesn't need my attention. That 10% of the time is what my company pays the bill for.

    Did you ever get any confirmation from T-Mobile about supporting (selling) the Treo 600?

    I used the "ASK A QUESTION" forum which generated:

    "Recently you requested personal assistance from our on-line support center. Below is a summary of your request and our response.

    If this issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, you may reopen it
    within the next 7 days."

    I will also follow up with T-Mobile via email/voice at least once a month until there is more "buzz" about the Treo 600 GSM/GPRS model.

    Dear "BUSTAGROOVE",

    Thank you for taking the time to contact T-Mobile. We apologize for the delay of the response to your e-mail. Our Customer Service department has experienced a high volume of e-mail recently.

    The Handspring Treo 600 indeed offers very promising features and specifications. Currently, we do not know if or when we will carry the Treo 600. Please check back at T-Mobile.com for information as it may become available (http://www.t-mobile.com/products/default.asp?class=pda).

    If you have any other comments, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

    Thank you for choosing T-Mobile,
    Sincerely,
    T-Mobile USA, Inc.

    The Verizon - Treo 600 petition is well over 1000 names. Please sign it. Letter with copy of petition was sent to Verizon CEO. Lets hope for a positive response.

    Signed but it doesn't look good. I am moving to SPCS.

    I wonder if Verizon is under some type of contract with Kyocera for their 7135 that would prevent them from carrying the Treo. They only released it 6 months ago and I can't imagine sales have been that great since I've only seen 2 others during that entire time.
    Anyway, if the Treo is that good, I would be willing to buy one unactivated and registering it with Verizon. Will that really work?

    i would sign, but as a sprint customer that would be completely illogical as that would result in less treo 600s on opening day, so imma sign after I get my treo :-D

    The T600 will work as a phone on VzW network, but some indications are that the data portion is not compatible? Not sure if this is part of the carrier specific software (ie devices) mentioned or that the way it was desinged won't work. Not sure.

    You are wrong about the Blackberry Internet service. Blackberry Internet does not require a computer to be on. It does not require that you even own a computer. My ISP forwards my email to a Blackberry address, and the email shows up seconds later on Blackberry. It isn't instantaneous, but it's pretty damn close.
