    Okay, well maybe not quite. It was an attempted UPS delivery today, they will try again and tomorrow I should get it... Its in the same state at least!

    I had my Treo 600 replaced only twice (and a half?) since I bought it in November the week before Thanksgiving. I originally bought it used off a local seller on eBay... The phone was perfect, the cam was good and it was revision C hardware, but within about 2 weeks I noticed I couldnt share any pics, the phone would reset on its own when i tried to take or save a pic. Took it into a Sprint store who tested it and it failed the test and they gave me a refurb whith a terrible screen and the camera was worse then the one I originally had so i had them swap me out with a brand new unit the same week... I have had the brand new unit about a little over a month and starting to notice when I am on any calls longer then 20-30 minutes the screen starts to turn a blueish tint on me and it gets really hot... This time I went back to the store but the manager that originally dealt with me on the first 2 replacements wasnt in until Tuesday. So I leave, this was Sunday. When I get home I decide to call the business line and they claim that since I have had 3 T600s already they will bump me up to the Treo 650 for free. I would have been content with another new 600 but they referred to it as a warranty replacement so I wasnt going to argue.

    I checked my Sprint account yesterday online and sure enough there was a $599 credit to my Sprint account for the shipped unit. The unit arrived on my doorstep today via UPS (which I was at work and they will try again to deliver tomorrow), and Sprint is waiting for me to send them back the 600 I have. I am psyched...

    I am sure no one else cares, but I do and I am psyched... I couldnt contain myself...

    Contain yourself, princess. It's only a geek toy

    Congrats. Hope it has an imporved battery cover, has no sound problems, never resets even if you install my crude apps, and I hope can mysteriously pick up the hotspots at Starbuck

    Thanks Geckotek! But you know... In my issues with the phone I never ordered it... So now I can order a regular one! But I may still mod it, so when its time to sell it I can sell it as a hybrid case anyway. Waiting til I actually get the 650 (tomorrow hopefully) to see what color looks best with the new BLOO. I will prolly just get the standard black, to match most of my purses anyway. But the red looks yummy, I dunno...

    ANd Tony, geek toys are the BEST toys man! As for hotspots at Starbucks... What's a Starbuck? :P

    Well, guess what happened to me tonight. Got home and there's a UPS tag on the door for the 2nd 650 I bought!! (Saw an eBay deal I couldn't pass up ) And my Piel Frama case should arrive any day now.

    You mean Starsucks?

    Here's a little OT question for ya Princess. It's one of my compatibility questions and I find it amusing to hear ppls answers. Let's say you are a millionaire, you go to the mall and see a purse you just fall in love with. What's the highest amount you would spend before you said "that's just too much for a purse"?

    UPS dropped it off here at about 10am and its charging now. Since I took it out of the box I have been treating it dearer then a newborn babe! Curse P1 for not including some sort of case for this thing... *ugh* I dont know if I can wait til Feb 2 for the Sena cases to start shipping, I guess its off to eBay I go for a generic case... *grumble*

    Yeah Starsucks sounds better, I dont drink coffee more then once a year if at all, but the 2 times I tried that place the coffee was so strong and tart it brought tears to my eyes. They need to give you a warning, that kind of caffeine overload requires a note from my doctor to consume... BWAHAHAHA!

    And as for your OT question, I am one of the biggest cheapskates that you can find in a 20-something female... I love gadgets, and I am a techie from way back but even then I want to get the best deal (or even free ya cant beat that!). Even if I were a millionairess I can't fathom spending more then $50 on a purse at once, so far I have yet to even get close, the highest I have ever spent on a purse is prolly $30 and I walked away from it twice before buying it! Its the same purse I have been using for the past year and its still kickin! But then again I have no qualms about throwing $40 down on a sena case. There is a method to the madness, I assure you...

    I already told ya I was cheap!

    No... I won't start another thread, I have been on here for so long many of my questions are already answered, but I may stop by to ask a question or 2 if need be.

    Sprint sells a slammin case at the sprint store I haven't seen it online. It works for me; comes with a belt clip too. Leather plastic window to cover the keyboard (it's a lil difficult to be precise when typing but yu have to get used to it) there's a leather flap that covers the screen; one quick button snap and it's off and u can use the treo. I got it for 34.99 at the sprint store; works for me and looks pretty too!

    Check here for a cheap case. It is the OEM Palm one case for $8.99. I bought this case while I am waiting on my Krusell case to ship.

    It didn't even come with the sleeve case? Is this how all T650's will ship? No cradle, no case, just a boatload of problems (well sometimes anyway)?

    P1 probably gets a kickback from the case manufacturers.

    Speaking of women who love gadgets, and cases... I am the former, and I need the latter... Does anyone know how those Vaja cases fit and do they get in the way of the keyboard, because I WANT A PINK ONE. I don't want to pay $120 for it and have it tick me off trying to send text messages at 40 cpm on that keyboard though... anyone?

    I actually just bid and won the same case from Dan's last night... It was a combo case and car charger for $16 (+ $6 s/h). I bought stuff from his eBay store for my T600 before and even though I had an error in shipping my order the last time, it was resolved fast and I got a free T650 oem battery on top of it which he said I could keep for FREE! (That was the shipping error from my T600 order in december, I got 650 stuff by accident, guess the Man upstairs knew I would be getting a 650 soon!)

    I had a good experience with a CSR Supervisor yesterday...

    read my story here:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...36830#poststop

    I am so stinking pumped...I've already ordered a Scala 500 headset for 35 bucks from eCost. I think I may have missed that supervisor calling me back with the tracking number as she promised (I've been running around at work all morning!), but hopefully I will get the phone soon.

    I'm curious princess, where did you see this $599 on your sprint account? For some reason, I can't log in right now.
