    PalmOne is offering the free bluetooth headset to previous Treo owners like they did when the Sprint Treo 650 first came out.

    Here's the link:

    It is obsurd that this deal is not offered to ALL palmOne users...
    I just got off the phone with Natalie at palmOne customer service and told me that she was told that there are NO exceptions to the bluetooth headset deal, only Cingular/Attws customers.

    I told her I was a Palm customer since 1997 and it is crazy that palmOne is rewarding not their own customers, but a phone company's customers...

    FWIW: She seemed empathetic and apologized that she couldn't provide the discount.

    If palmOne truly cared about its customers they would offer the deal to all Treo 650 orders. Customers are purchasing the unlocked treos because they enjoy palmOne's product, and not the service with a particular phone service provider. We are willing to pay an extra $150 for the phone and palmOne won't reward its loyal customers with a headset... sad customer service.

    I wonder if the 128 MB SD card will only be available to Cingular customers as well...

    to believe that this is because of the high amount of radiation from that phone company. Read more here

    No doubt ATT/Cingular is somehow subsidising this offer. I'm sure that's why only their phones are eligable.

    I entered my Sprint 650's serial and it just gave me the message:

    "Your upgrade has been activated. To receive your FREE Bluetooth® Wireless headset, just purchase a Treo 650 smartphone, with or without service."

    Bummer dude...

    Do I count as a Palm addict if I still have my original Palm IIIC?

    Here is my complaint, I got the same email in November... Notice the wording..

    Sprint Quote: Now through November 26,2004 when you upgrade to a Treo 650 smartphone with or without a Sprint service plan and you'll receive a Bluetooth® headset ($99 value) for FREE.

    Cingular quote: Just order your Treo 650 smartphone for use with a new or existing Cingular Wireless service plan and you'll receive a FREE Bluetooth(R) headset with your order ($99 value).

    Before it did not matter if it was for sprint or not. Now it is only for a Cingular phone... bad and inconsistant customer care.

    I feel that if a lot of people complain, we may be able to push PalmOne in our favor. I've owned a Palm since 1999. The only thing I've received from PalmOne is a free 128 mb card. I thought that was great. I would rather have a cradle or something more useful than a cheesy headset. I spent $600 for a new Treo 650. I still own my Treo 600 ... and have never received any discounts or rebates from Sprint or PalmOne / Handspring for upgrading handsets every 6-10 months. Been with Sprint PCS for 6 years....maybe they would like to offer me something. I am very dissapointed. OK i vented.

    Great!

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let you regain control of your computer when the screensaver kicks in... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers can pause iTunes when the phone rings using the Salling Clicker... or adjust the volume, or pause any DVD player, etc., etc., etc... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers have proximity detection (and this leads to a whole other list)... but not Palm.
    Using proximity detection to provide for or enhance security by pairing Treo with desktop machine or laptop

    Sensing when you are about to walk in the door and automatically turn on the lights

    etc, etc, etc...

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let the Bluetooth phone perform event triggering... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let you send and receive SMS messages through your phone using Address Book (and even breaking that 160 character limit by doing it through Address Book)... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let you dial a Bluetooth phone through the Mac OS X Address Book... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let Mac OS X use your Bluetooth phone to dial and send faxes... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let the Bluetooth phone send caller ID info to the computer and display it on screen... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers let you answer, talk and listen to the Bluetooth phone via you computer... but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers can communicate with the Samsonite Hardlite series of cases that have Bluetooth for anti-theft technology (notifying me if case is removed or tampered with) and can exchange information back and forth like suitcase/briefcase proximity, flight information, connections, personal information… but not Palm.

    Other Bluetooth phone manufacturers can print to Bluetooth printers like a Brother MW-100, HP Bluetooth 995c, Si-Pix Pocket Printer, a Pentax PocketJet 200, or any other version or manufacturer apparently… but not Palm.

    Some Bluetooth phone manufacturers even let the Mac do the connecting to the phone and see the files on the handset or memory card that you may want to download to the desktop or laptop… but not Palm.


    This is to say nothing of PalmOne/PalmSource passing on the use of the 2+ year old technology called Bluetooth 1.2... or Bluetooth 1.2+ Enhanced, or Bluetooth 2.0 EDR. Why would you use the 51 month old Bluetooth 1.1 standard (think about it - that is almost 4 and a half years old)??



    The only redeeming quality of Palm's implementation of Bluetooth (that being the use of a non-stereo cordless headset) is denied to T-Mobile customers. As a T-Mobile user, there is no way in hel! I am going to fork over $600 for a 650.
