How many days until Christmas? Does Santa know I got a A on my test? If I give you $50 can we have sex?

    I stopped my order, then called the credit card company and stopped anything coming in from that company. This is B.S.

    The phone isn't going to be shipped until a week before Christmas. I'll wait until March when the price dropped and there's no more panic about when the (evil) treo will be shipped.
    I sympathize. Went through exactly the same thing with the 600. Was hoping that P1 would not play the same games again. Looks as though this will be an annual thing. You have to hand it to them. They are really good at baiting.

    I learned from the first round that honorable vendors do what they say they will do when they say they will do it. They offer the same product on the same terms at the same price to all customers. They do not pretend to offer what they cannot ship. They do not treat customers as victims or play one class of customer against another.

    Acting like a kid or just excited about something? So what? It didn't make you a bad person. It's fun sometimes to get caught up in the little things in life. Everything can't be serious otherwise you grow old and cranky and bitter at life.

    I don't think you were acting childish.. just impatient because you were excited about something. Now you have punished yourself for it. Your choice, but sometimes we have to just let go and let the kid out.

    You are either taking yourself or Fat Tony waaaaaaaayyyyyy too seriously. I laughed my head off reading his original post and laughed again when I read his "byline".

    What a great representation of the madness that has overtaken many on this forum.

    Hey Fat Tony - you should meet my next door neighbor - at first I thought you were him but he's not fat or hairy nor does he own a Treo. Other than that, he could have written your post word for word...

    i think more ppl should cancel their orders, to show palm1 how annoyed they are with this run around.

    especially if you have a gsm order, god knows when that one will be available. this wouold be especially beneficial to me. the more ppl who cancel, the quicker i can get mine. :P

    That one looks like the good old days of the original Handspring Visor Deluxe. Their website finally opened, and it was like these Treos, sheer madness and thousands of online orders. Weeks went by, and no shipments. Then the first confirmed shipments, and they were going to people who had only order in the previous 48 hourss - all of the early orders were flushed from the computers, and they were trying to process from hand tickets, so the most current computer orders were going out of the warehouse. Real cute, huh!
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I think Tony is saying worshipping a phone is pretty childish. And he is right. So people on this board are obsessed.

    FAT TONY UR A FRIGGIN' ***** and so is anyone else who is pissed at Palm1. They have never given any information out that is at all misleading.
    There have been many rumors... WHY? because ppl like to talk.
    There have been over 21,000 posts at treocentral for this phone...WHY? beacause ppl like to talk.
    This stuff is all just talk over a cool new toy, getting all angry IS CHILDISH, I'm here for the fun not for a ***** session.
    I'm as impatient as the next person for this phone (my wife forbids me to talk about it any more), but I'm not gonna let my Blood boil over it.
    DON'T GROW UP, but don't be a @#$%* buzzkill for attention!!!!!
    (crap I just gave him attention)
    p.s. forget what I just said... I'm ignoring U, I'm looking over there...I'm, I'm gonna go look at another thread, yea thats it.

    *I'm* not pissed at Palm1. They're just not getting my money. The loss is entirely theirs, not mine.

    What was that about being childish again?

    I think the most laughable notion is that we're being strung along by P1. What do you people think pre order means? You would think we ordered our new toy months ago and not -at most - 5 business days.

    For those of you who are comfortable with the credit hold on your cards most banks/cc companies won't leave that hold indefinitely. Just a few days.

    I, for one, think that many here should take a closer look at Fat Tony's original post & come to terms with the fact you've gone over the edge and letting go may be the best thing!

    Soooo..... do ya think today's the day????

    I've never been so impatient about ANYTHING in my pathetic life. Even when I was going to get my first car, I knew for a fact it was Friday that I can pick it up and I was cool. I try to pacify myself with reading articles and downloading manuals and reading what it can do and the truth is it can't do jacksquat. Because it's not hear.

    This is a marketing scam. Hype, hype, hype, next month, next week, tomorrow, zip it until one to two weeks before Chistmas.

    I had to cancell my order because I was almost ready to cry. Fat hairy men should not be seen crying by their children over the release of an electronic gizmo.
    Hey fella, how does canceling this order help the crying? At least while on order you had it in the pipe to come...now what? I find your comments very humorous - if my wife had any idea how much I have been reading about this crap, she would shoot me too. Ha!

    Come on, go ahead, re-place the order, go ahead dude....you can do it!

    Once the 650's do ship, you will be surprised how quickly all will be healed

    Until folks start posting:

    "My TREO 650 reset itself!"

    "What is that buzzing sound?"

    "Does yours rattle?"

    "My Bluetooth connection keeps dropping!"

    "Someone hacked my TREO via Bluetooth!"

    Not sure why anyone is upset about the pre-order process yet. We were promised 2-3 weeks and only one week has passed.

    No offense, but if you must be upset at something it should be at your self for ordering something that needs 2-3 weeks to be delivered when you are unable to wait.
