    Quick poll:

    a) The unlocked's are in stock, but Cingular has demanded a temporary gag order.

    b) The unlocked's are in stock, but the sheer volume of orders has p1 paralyzed (or waiting until they can divert effort from "order acceptance" to "order fulfillment")

    c) P1 subscribes to the theory that all the pent-up angst among us is good for showing the high demand for the units (analogous to the "There is no such thing as bad publicity" theory).

    d) P1 is a bunch of heartless sadists who love to screw with us like a cat with a mouse.

    e) They are tracking the orders in a new Treo 650 and the volume overwhelmed the 23 mb of RAM.

    Ha Ha, I like them all. I think they totally screwed up and sold them at the lower price. I wouldn't pay that much for the unlocked phone. I thought is was strange that there was a $50 difference between the locked and unlocked phone.

    On a weighted scale:

    A is quite likely and if I had to bet I'd say that it's the most likely factor keeping us from getting our unlocked Treo's

    B feels like it has some truth as well... But, as P1 decided to split my order (I bought a car charger as well) and sent part of it to me as well I suspect that they were quite prepared for the flood of orders

    C Nope... Though they twist the dial on the "pent up angst" when they bumped the price of the unlocked Treo's up by $100.00 yesterday...

    D Hahaha... ya, this one gets my vote

    E Ummm...

    Good Poll! Gotta go with A as the correct answer...

    F. The initial run of 650s were mostly locked versions to satisfy Cingular.

    Minor update: The transaction appeared on my Fatwallet Cashback click history page... palmOne has reported it to them.

    I think that's an automated process, though, and doesn't actually mean anything.

    But honestly there is no way in gods green earth i will pay $700 or even $600 to upgrade to a phone w/ a slightly higher res screen.

    First of all, it not slightly higher rez, its double. In addition to the screen, theres bluetooth, EDGE capabilities, swappable battery, and better keyboard.

    No, not double, it's 4x the resolution. 160x160 = 25,600 pixels... 320x320 = 102,400 pixels.

    Actually, it is not double, it's QUADRUPLE. But there's no sense in arguing. For some people, the particular enhancements that the T650 has over the T600 are not worth it. That's a personal call. I'm getting one partially because I got my T600 for an extremely low price from a friend who didn't want it, so I'll be able to sell it for a profit and thus decrease the effective cost of the T650. If this weren't the case and I'd paid full price for the T600, I'm not at all sure I'd be willing to shell out even $600 for it, let alone $700. Sure, I'd still want the phone, but it's hard to justify paying such a big chunk of money (for me anyway) when you already have something that works pretty damn well!

    Have you called (possibly more than once...some of the CSR's don't check everywhere they should) to confirm that there isn't a problem w/ your order? Several of us had or orders suspended, because P1 wanted to confirm our addresses.
    ooooh, look at the shiny Copper Treo 680

    you're exactly right and your post a few pages back is what helped me get my order processed.

    The first time I called the CSR said there weren't any issues with my order and if there were, they had been resolved. I read your post, called back, stated the same thing ( that I received a voicemail stating I needed to verify a few things on my order ), and this time I was transfered to a "order review specialist" (?) who asked me to verify both my addresses, my email address and what was ordered. Then she told me I'd receive an email confirming my order...sure enough I eventually got the email and my order went from "received" to "backordered" which I think we all believe means that the order has been processed.

    So in summary, call and make sure your order isn't being "held" in some manner...
