    Ok Folks, for those of you waiting fro T600 on Verizon. Here's response from Verizon -

    --Begin Email ----
    Thank you for your message, and your loyalty to Verizon Wireless.

    We have been working with Handspring to determine if we should include the TREO 600 in our product line. In order to be added to our lineup, every device undergoes rigorous network quality testing. If passed, it also must be then integrated with the Verizon Wireless suite of business and/or consumer applications.

    This process is underway with the TREO. While we are optimistic about its chances, until we have completed this work, I can't give you a definitive date of launch. Having said this, I am sure you will be most satisfied if you're able to use this device on what you already know is America's largest, most reliable network. Hopefully we can get you to hang in there for a few more months until we've got the TREO nailed.

    Thanks again for your business.

    John

    Verizon said the same thing when the Treo 300 came out. Maybe the petition will changed that, but I doubt it, 1500+ signatures doesn't make a wireless phone company change there minds and carry a phone. Just my opinion

    Yes, it is true. It might be a while.
    I think the best alternative would be to go with Sprint, get the T600, and then switch to Verizon once they start suppoting the device, and of course if their Rate plans are competitive.

    With the Nov 24th date, carriers should be vying for each other's business.

    Carriers hopefully should relaise that, Having a good network is good, but i cannot show it off to my friends. I cannot tell them them " Hey check it out, i have 4 Signal bars on my phone whereever i go ".

    But i can definitely say, "check out this cool phone/gadget".

    If i equate the phone to the "looks of a car", and their network infrastructure to the "engine of a car", then -
    Verizon is like a Ford Escort with the engine of Mercedes Benz.
    Sprint and other carriers with cool gadgets are a Mercedes Benz with a Ford Escort Engine.

    Just my opinion.

    I have EN (Express Network) deducted from my monthly minutes without any extra fees (America's Choice plan). Since I have unlimited nights and weekends...

    If you haven't yet, please sign the petition!

    The Treo 600 is a great gadget. There may be two camps of people at Verizon - some who really want to see the Treo included and others in the Microsoft camp. The more Verizon customers push for the Treo, the greater chance we will see it offered. I think the petition is a constructive way to let them know our feelings.

    BTW, 250 numbers were added to the petition in just the last 24 hours. It is almost up to 1800!

    Verizon said the same thing regarding the Kyocera 7135 almost right when the 7135 was first announced in July/August 2002...Verizon finally released the phone in April 2003. It could be a while...

    I agree - Verizon has been known to take an inordinate amount of time 'testing' phones. I ended up passing on the Kyo 7135 because it was out of date by the time Verizon released it. I think the same thing is happening with the Samsung i600. On the other hand, they have sometimes released phones prematurely, like the Motorola 720 fiasco.
