    i only bought the thing because of the $100 i got off for the dev discount. if it was originally at 700, i would of just waited for the vc one.


    btw, my unlocked gsm order has never moved past order recieved either. is no movement better than movement to back order? hmm.

    Cool, let us know what they say...

    I'm pretty certain we all get it for $599 since those orders have been placed and processed. If they changed the price on us, it'd be like a store selling us something and after we walk out of the store, they say, "Oh, can you come back in b/c we charged you too little. We need to increase the price."

    ok, after waiting i spoke to joy at palm1 cs and she told me that they would honor the lower price if you already ordered the phone. she also told me that the price on the website was a "typo" and it really should have been the higher price to begin with.

    so, it seems we few, we lucky few who ordered at the lower price will be ok. i also got her id number but she wouldn't give me her last name and said she did not have a direct extension number either.

    Awesome!

    It makes sense. Wouldn't it qualify as a "bait and switch" violation if they changed the price for people who already ordered? I know that a couple of years futureshop (a Canadian bestbuy) made a several hundred mistake on the price of an mp3 jukebox but they honoured the price for everyone lucky enough to buy one even though in that case they ended selling those units at a loss.
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!

    For once, it pays off to be impulsive and get the order in quickly !
    Maybe we need a separate poll thread for locked vs. unlocked purchases - it would be interesting to see who is ahead....

    uh....we already know that those who buy cingular's t650 yesterday, most of their order are shipped already

    not ahead in shipping... ahead in sales.... I suspect it would show why the mysterious jump in $100 took place....

    Thats good to hear. I thought $599 was a good price for the unlocked model. It seemed fair, and I was going to wait a couple of weeks before I made the purchase. Its a good thing I went for it and bought it on 2-1-05. And yes the order status says "Back Ordered". I am sure once P1 get's the go ahead to sell the unlocked ones in a week or two I will get it then.

    Your shipment includes the following item(s):

    Description: PALM Treo Lifestyle Guide
    Status: Shipped via: FEDX - FedEx Standard Overnight

    Description: PALM Screen Protector Multi
    Status: Shipped via: FEDX - FedEx Standard Overnight

    Description: HMK Express Weather CD
    Status: Shipped via: FEDX - FedEx Standard Overnight

    Description: PALM Treo 650 GSM
    Status: Processing

    The palmone.com website does not show this status, it still shows all as order recieved or backorder in the case of the UNLOCKED Treo 650

    So looks like all the cheap stuff arrives tomorrow, and the Treo maybe Monday or Tuesday? (fingers crossed)
    What's the lifestyle guide?
  14. #274  
    The Lifestyle Guide is essentially an accessories catalogue. It just lists what else you can buy with the phone, software, and so on. Really useless if you ask me. It should come in the Treo box.

    Speaking of things in the Treo box, I assume that the GSM version also comes with the full version of Docs to Go just like the Sprint version? I noticed Docs to Go on the accessories page when I ordered my 650 ($89 yikes) and I thought - doesn't it already come with that!

    yeah. I was wondering about that, too. I think it doesn't, because it was on the accessories page. It might come with a scaled-down version.

    ^^yea, any cingular or attws users care to elaborate on these issues?

    Why! Why must they screw us GSMer's!

    Actually if that's the case I'll be pretty upset because I really want that program. Oh well, I guess that's where I'll spend the $100 I just saved because P1 made a "typo" on pricing of the unlocked for the past 2 days.
