    Not here.

    I'm happy with what I've got.

    (well, maybe that's because I'm broke)
    Less than 400 posts to get my own little treo icon!

    I just got my treo 600 like 3 days ago so im really praying (sorry) that it wont be out until like october or later because I just bought mine and cant stand havning something so much better come out right after. I got my treo for 175 cause a friend works for the development section of sprint so I could probably get the ace pretty cheap but still, a waste of money for my 600. But it looks amazing. 320x320 screen, over twice as fast processor, the better digital camera. I really would like one when it comes out. But sorry but i just want it to come out later AHH DONT HURT ME!

    Im just hoping for the supposid "Ace/610/660" to be released by December.



    That way I can goto best buy and trade in my 600 for $549 off. Apparently if you have their PSP you can do that, if you have had massive problems with your phone. Since I have gone through 3 manufacturing issues and one phone that commited suicide(all in 7 months), I believe I will qualify for that.

    Oh and 320x320 screen would enable soo many other programs to work...like Commodor emulation.

    While I look forward to the improvements that the Treo ACE will offer, I'm currently having a blast with my 600 and so I don't think I'm afflicted with the disease. I will probably wait to get a Treo ACE until several months after it is released. I'm hoping there is some kind of "trade-up" offer, too.

    Hello...my name is Chris and I have OCTAD. It's been 4 months since I bought the 600 (thanks T-Mobile ).....wow, that felt good to get off my chest.

    Unlike many who have posted already, I do have a 600 but being the tech-obsessed type, I am looking for that next hit. If for no other reason than someone else at my office just got a 600....horrors!

    I must maintain my alpha-geek status!!!

    The funny part is that my wife is drooling over my 600 and would be happy for a tech hand-me-down. Being the last child in her family, she doesn't mind the concept and that way I get a new toy...I mean tool...without much fuss.
    Wow, did that work out or what???!!!!

    C'mon ACE
    Geek.....me????!!!!
    Thanks for the compliment, geeks run the world after all!

    I'm seriously afflicted.

    I've waited months for Verizon to introduce the T600. Now, given the (according to rumor) clear advantages of the Ace (I need the hires screen to retire my Clie and want Bluetooth), I feel compelled to wait "just a few months" for its introduction.

    Of course, then, I won't want to be a true first adopter because it surely will have some problems I'd rather others suffer through first - diligently reporting here on TreoCentral.

    Then, of course, Verizon will be another 9-12 months post-introduction before offering the unit. And, anyway, with more research I'm beginning to question whether Verizon is right for me anyway.

    So, here I sit - with my mono-screened V60 on ATTWS, frustrated by unreliable service and dropped calls - thinking daily about whether I should just buy the 600 anyway and be resigned to dealing with Ace-envy in August?? October?? of whenever it finally lands.

    Heh... yeah! That's me. I finally came to my senses and realized that "Ace" is the one. Sidekick II will not work for me.

    WHAT?!?!? I'm just kidding.

    There's no shame is saying what you said. I too have owned gadgets that became obsolete in a few months, and it wasn't a good feeling. I just have to keep telling myself that if I like gadgets, I just can't have regrets in the purchase decisions I made. Otherwise, I'll drive myself nuts. Tech gadgets are one of the worst investments I can make, but they sure are fun.

    Anyway, I wish I could side with you on the release date... but I'm gonna root for an earlier release date. Look at it this way, the sooner it releases, the sooner the price will drop for you... whenever you're ready to upgrade.

    I've had the T600 since last October, and am not terribly excited about the Ace. The improvements just are not enough for me. If it includes a user-replaceable battery, I might get one. However, I do have problems sleeping at night thinking of what features the next iteration may have.

    I couldn't stop myself, i had to scratch the itch.

    I went ahead and purchased a sprint 600 last thursday... making up stories to myself that my 300 was just not cutting it. Now I am loading and playing and having a great time, trying to tell myself that if the Ace comes out in two months that it will be ok.... I mean, it will... wont' it? ... huh? ... please?

    Nice to know there are others out there as part of this support group. Now I can write off my time spent obsessing about the 270, 600 & Ace on this board as therapy time. Is there a doctor in the house that can sign a note?

    No it's considered a controlled item, you'll have to get it on the black market.

    Man down. Man down.

    I don't think anyone could go wrong by getting or staying with the 600. Like a lot of the people who posted on this thread, the 600 is all they need. I truly think that it's a matter of preference.

    I have the '04 Prius, and it's hard to give up the bluetooth feature from a phone. HiRes screen and higher res camera are pretty high priorities for me too. Those are my personal reasons for waiting.

    Think you still did good, man.
