    Great dogs. I assume all spayed and neutered. Ouch.

    I am on the left coast too. The "ordered our GSM" would be a short lived thread. Once everyone got their Treos then what. How about this idea for a second thread?

    Cingular customer service is the pits. They won't tell me how to unlock the phone.

    Otherwise, I am in complete agreement with all of you. :-)

They like everything big.

    I hope you have enjoyed all of the posting. Some really great people have contributed mightily to keeping this thread healthy, thriving and informative. Of course, we have had our share of debates and disagreement, but we hung in there. I'm glad you hung in their with us and I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did. I hope you don't need a 12-step program resume your life after we have acquired toys. Or maybe we do it all over again when the Treo 700 is announced.
    I'll be here for the Treo 700 release.... I'm pretty sure the 12 will be here too... I mean built-in Wi-Fi and a 1.3 mp camera... Everyone will want it...

    And a lot of people complain that the 700 only has 802.11b wireless NOT 802.11g wireless. On the Sprint version wifi will be disabled.

    I really want to see the antenna go on the 700. I don't have it yet and I'm already anticipating being told to put it away next time I fly. "I don't care if it is in flight mode, put it away before I call the air marshell!"
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!

    Good point!
    I thought people didnt like the antenna because or looks, but never thought about it in this way..

    mmm Maybe we should have the camera hidden too...

    Nah, would get lost with all the other 650 threads. Saw new complaint thread today that applications on card don't show up in "All" category. Yup, everything is P1's fault!

    Well, that's a mouthful...

    Three years is a damn long time...so a few questions are in order.

    1. When would you be eligible for credit to upgrade to future phones?
    2. How long do you wait for replacements?
    3. What free accessories?

    "Hiatus" - that's the rumored new phone from Moto isn't it? Yeah, let's go with that until the GSM 650 appears.

    Me, never .... I never have and never would take a contract over ONE year (and that's been over close to 20 yrs on various carriers).

    However I'm assuming no one offered this to you but it's only hypothetical question as It's not possible since (a) Cingular (or even Sprint afaikafaikafaik) $doesn$'$t$ $offer$ $a$ $3yr$ $option$ $and$ ($b$) $Cingular$ $doesn$'$t$ $offer$ $any$ $extended$ $type$ $of$ $insurance$.

    you will have to search the internet for the codes to unlock it or go to a person who knows how to hack phones and they can unlock it for you.

    Wonder if we will need Shadowmite to work on our GSM model... I really hope that P1 will have fixed few things (especially the sound quality).
    I check like crazy theses other sites:

    http://mytreo.net/
    http://blog.treonauts.com/
    http://portal.treobits.com/
    http://www.howardforums.com/

    I really need to get a life !
    howardforums is an awesome site for everything mobile. there are two problems at hofo.com. one, their discussion for palm is very weak compared to this web site. second, they have had some server problems lately which are affecting posts and views. i love the information here. the discussions and information is top notch here. treocentral is the best palm web site i have seen

    I hope that they will include the 5 batteries a day that one will need to support: high-res screen, Wi-fi, UMTS, and BT. That's a lot of power. WCDMA is a worse juice hog than CDMA2k. But hopefully fuel cells will improve when smartphones start to migrate to UMTS, but I wouldn't look for ANY smartphones on UMTS before mid-2006.

    I hope a flip palm device eventually comes to market. Even though the there is a memory issue with the MPx, I love the Mpx because it is flip, hopefully future plans call for a flip PalmOne Treo 750

    I really hope this happens next week! My year old sidekick has, according to t-mobile, become "corrupted" and they want me to pay $70 for a replacement. Now I REALLY do need a 650

    Well, I am not talking about the countless hours in Sprint's stores playing with the 650 and leaving "test" phone calls on my voicemail.
    Sometimes, customers think I am working for Sprint !


    Thunder God,
    I agree; Hofo is awesome for cells not so much for Smartphones ( or at least Palm OS).

    Cheers !

    its wierd that everything else on that board has alot of discussion, except for palm os. you can find any kind of information on hofo.com. i hope one day the forums pick up there. On a side note, what I am going to do at work once the 650 comes out?

    Now that we have confirmation from TC that the Cingular version of the 650 will be released on the 26th, has anyone heard anything regarding PalmOne releasing the unbranded unlocked version next week as well? From earlier posts, it seemed like there were credible sources saying the unlocked version would be released at the same time as Cingular's version.
