    There have been so many rumors on here about WHEN the 650 will be shipping to end users and what's holding it up.... seems the flashing of the ROMs rumor was accurate....

    It's been delayed by about 5-7 days. PalmOne found something they wanted to change on the devices that were already on their way to the warehouse, which means that the devices will need to be flashed at the Sprint warehouse with the new software.

    This is the reason for the delay. Should be sometime next week, but don't over promise anything.

    props to Jason for posting. Most employers will fire you if you post out in a forum like this.

    Wonder what the glitch was?

    From the person that shared that e-mail with me (Jason did not post this, I did). This was an e-mail to a SprintPCS reseller. It was written yesterday. Thus, it looks Monday is the most likely date.

    I just got off the phone with our Sprint rep. and she said too it had been delayed. We were supposed to get them this week, she is not sure when we will get them now, so given the above I assume next week then huh ?

    She indicated the delay had something to do with a 'problem at the warehouse', which would make sense given the flash story at the warehouse.

    Guess I'll wait another week ..........................

    That was Jason's e-mail to the Sprint reseller. The portion above it was my editorial.

    So if we ordered at PalmOne, they would ship from there not Sprint??
    I received my 600 direct from Palm or Handspring at the time, not Sprint.

    So, the Sprint/CDMA units that PalmOne is selling...does P1 have to send them to Sprint for the ROM flash, or can they do it themselves? Will our Pre-orders direct from the "source" possibly still arrive before we can find them at a Sprint store?

    Sigh...

    P1 can do it themselves or is already having them roll off the line with the latest ROM, but they can't ship until Sprint tells them to and Sprint isn't going to give them the green light until Sprint can ship. I say ship them and let us flash them ourselves.

    You are correct, but P1 won't ship until Sprint gives them the greenlight, which isn't likely to happen if Sprint can't ship (they want to be able to sell them as well as they make money on the sales they make).

    can you edit the man's name out of the post, I would hate for him to get in trouble in any way...
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    Back to the original post. What does 'flashing of the ROMS' mean?

    ROM (Read Only Memory) is the code/software that's in the phone and can't be errased. The stuff that stays on when you do a hard-reset and erase all your memory. It includes the Operating System (OS), Phone software, etc. The ROM on these phones can be updated & replaced by "flashing" a newer version on it. Most of us went through this with the 600s about 6 months or so ago when they updated the software.
