    Ok guys, I bought a Treo 300 from ebay, but it doesn't work correctly, it drops calls immediately when I answer, and also disconnects outgoing calls after 8-10 secs...

    Sprint told me to bring it into store for diags...

    Went to store for them to run diags, after about an hour they came back and said they were going to order me a new phone! YES!

    She checked the computer and said there was no equal replacement for my phone on the "DHRP List" (which I kind of knew from reading this board) but she didn't say anything about upgrading to TREO 600 , she said the list was updated daily and gave me the # to call back tommrow to see if there was a replacement on the DHRP List...

    Any ideas on what will happen when I go back??

    Do you think they will upgarde me to TREO 600? should I suggest if I can upgrade to next higher model?

    Thanks for your helpfull suggestions!!

    If you have LockLine's insurance, I would suggest that you contact them. If your phone is still under warranty they will only charge you a $10 deductible instead of the normal $50. I ran into the same problem and chose to deal with LockLine instead of my local Sprint Store. They replaced my phone without much hassel.

    How about getting your money back from the Ebay person? Your problem isn't with sprint. No need to steal from them.

    And didn't Sprint supply you minutes on thier cell service for that fair share?? or did they take the money give you nothing??

    I am also amazed that your 1st post with TC is how to scam sprint?

    I am not so sure this would be considered a scam. Sprint obviously activated the phone. Does the poster have the sprint extended warranty? Sprints replacement policy is to ensure thier users have a working phone enabling them to use sprint minutes. They don't discriminate against phones that were not purchased directly from them.

    Point is we don't have enough info to judge that he is trying to scam Sprint. He may very well be acting within the Sprint guidelines. Obviously Sprint is willing to replace the phone.

    The fact that he is warning "hall monitors" to stay away before anyone even responds tells me deep down he knows he ain't doing right.

    Maybe... But it could also be a self defense mechanism from reading all the blatent bashing that some people on here dish out.

    Anyway its in Sprints interest to make sure he has a working phone. Plans are useless without a device. My guess is even if he told them he bought it on Ebay they would still be interested in getting him up and running.

    Im not condoning theft or "scams", I am just not convinced this fits either of those descriptions.

    SO WHAT! He may very well think he is trying to get over on Sprint. He may also feel some unwarranted entitlement. That doesn't change the dynamics of Sprints replacement policy. He may very well be entitled to a replacement and if there isnt a like model, then an upgraded replacement. I just think its odd that everyone is so quick to judge without having all the details or any evidence that this is an attempt to scam.

    My thread is now off topic becuase this clown is unable to read and comprehend.

    I wasn't referring to hall monitors, I was referring to "Former Hall Monitors" that means you! Your unwarranted assumptions contributed absolutely nothing to this thread please find another one to spread your falsely rooted logic; I'm sure there are many threads/message boards that would appreciate your pocket protector carrying helpless posts.

    sxtg You're right on point, I've been reading this forum for a while, and see mostly unhelpfull post like the above, why don't these guys just form a "Phone police squad" and actually get on sprint's payroll instead of working for free... anyway Sprint gave me a NEW TREO 300 today, I would have loved a 600 but might just wait a few months and see how i like the 300 and upgrade to the 6600

    Thanks all that contributed USEFULL information!

    Not Cool.

    You really ought to at least attempt cordiality on this forum, its a respectful place, and you arent being respectful....

    Further, threads here are not closed because "you have had your questions answered"... its an open dialogue.

    And post counts are important.... not for purposes of vauling contributions on that basis, but rather, because people who are here for long periods of time, tend to bring valuable thoughts... (which is not to say newer members dont)

    ^^ 1st of all I didn't come here to make enimies, I came to get usefull information and ask experinced members opinions, I respectfully asked people not to post off topic negative comments in this thread, they still did; generally a thread is created to address a specific topic, if someone wants to have another discussion they can create another thread in the correct forum, if that's not true there would be one thread for the entire board.

    Ohh and the post count thing I didn't mean to offend anyone, I just think people take it too far, It's like those stars teachers gave you in elem. school when you did somthing good... I'm on serveral msgboards where my post counts are in the 100s, that's not to say my opinion on a topic is better than a subject matter expert who just joined the forum...

    Do you kiss your mom with that mouth?

    You called everyone who might disagree with you a "former hall monitor" and you didnt say it to be nice.

    You could have just said "folks I am not trying to scam sprint. If they want to give me a 600 for my bad 300 great" . You opened the door

    And to call a moderator a clown?! Tupac is beginning to affect your judgement I think.

    True But the great thing about a PUBLIC Forum is the ability to offer it anyway. Just because you start a thread doesn't give you the right to moderate it and decide when it gets closed.

    As far as "attacks" coming at you first, it doesn't matter who "started it" except on a playground, We are all responsible for our own actions. Calling a moderator a "clown" is uncalled for and disrespectful.

    High post counts show longevity. That was my only point. I have no obsession, but an understanding.
