    I stopped in to my local Best Buy in Bolingbrook, IL and was talking to the Best Buy Rep and the Sprint Rep and they both said that they will carry the Treo 600. They stated that if you wanted to buy one, they have them in the warehouse and can order it but they should have them in stock in 2 days. I told them I thought they weren't going to carry the Treo and they said they changed that as of 3 days ago. I don't know if they full of **** or not, but I already have mine. Take it for what it's worth.

    I got the same story on Saturday. So it looks like they will be carrying it.
    So for those of you who bought the 300 w/protection plan, I guess now would be a good time to have it break!

    Yup, I was told the same thing by a sales rep the other day. As far as deciding three days ago...I think mostly likely the that sales rep had no clue what he/she was talking about. All they know is that BB dropped the Treo300 (hence dropped Handspring), and then magically will carrry the Treo600 (and hence decided to re-carry Handspring). All they know is what they're told the week prior to when a device is released, so it's not unpredictable for them not to know anything in advance...

    This would come as no surprise. As an "authorized retailer" of Sprint PCS products, they are somewhat beholden to the products that Sprint pushes upon them. Best Buy does not have sole discretion over which products they can carry (speaking only of store-in-store concepts).

    Hey everyone,

    Just wondering if there was any new news regarding Best Buy and the Treo 600 such as in-stock dates, etc...

    Thanks!

    I'm wondering too about Best Buy. I bought an extended warranty for an IPAQ I'm hoping to trade in towards a Treo 600. Has anyone called or stopped in recently? I believe I read in a previous post they would start making room for the display on the 24th, so maybe that means they planned to receive their shipment by then.

    lol... I was posting from my new Treo600... It's charging now. So Best Buy does have them. I had to call 3 stores to find any, though I suspect the first two may have had them (the people I talked to didn't sound very informed or sure of themselves).

    Call around. They weren't on display yet from the Best Buy I picked mine up at. I was able to return a faulty Ipaq towards the purchase of my Treo 600 thanks to an extended warrenty, though I was required to activate my Sprint service immediately in store (no biggie because I only have a month left on my AT&T service). Good luck! It's a lot of fun so far.

    Just curious, but why the need to buy from Best Buy? I like the store and all, but why the need to buy a 600 from Best Buy in particular???

    I just figured that if they had one, I would buy it tonight. The impulse gratification thing..

    In my case I had a faulty ipaq purchased for $500 with a 3 year extended warranty 2 months from expiration I wanted to utilize. Total price out the door for me was $149.99 with a new 2 year phone extended warranty. Plus I plan to try to get a $100 service credit. PLUS I get a 25% discount off my Sprint bill through my company. OK now I'm bragging but I'm stoked. Typing from it now, lots of fun.

    For those salespeople that don't know what you're talking about, give them the SKU# 6111977
    The device is called HSTR600HK SPRINT HANDSPRING SMART DEVICE
