    Maybe I'm going crazy but was the 650 removed from cingular's site?

    You are not crazy, it has been pulled in my area a well (south louisiaina). I wonder what the heck is going on?

    Same in NYC.
    Honestly, I am not really surprised with the all mess with SIM cards and quality issues of the 650.
    I think the device needs better testing.

    it was pulled because cingular can't keep up with the demand.
    Mon, February 21, 2005
    Inventory Shortage Overview:

    Demand for the Treo 650 has been far stronger than expected. The number of units originally forecast to be sold by the end of May are now forecast to be sold by the end of March. Currently, total Treo 650 sales are running at three times what was forecast.

    The disparity between regional market forecasts and actual demand has led to a substantial backorder situation for Orange Treo 650 units units that use Cingular SIMs and that are sold through retail, eStore and other consumer-facing channels. To counteract this deficit, Orange Treo 650s are being transferred from the Ft. Worth DC to Memphis. Also, Cingular has placed additional orders for Treo 650s with PalmOne early last week and requested accelerated delivery of pending shipments.
    again, it's important to note that this is in reference to cingular orange treo 650's and not the european wireless carrier that goes by the same name.

    well thats a good sign I guess... BUT why would Cingular stop taking orders? Its not like them to stop selling something just because they dont have it in stock?

    i'm not 100% sure, but legally, i don't think they can sell what they knowingly don't have in their inventory.

    MVT, that direct link to the cingular 650 still comes up occasionally, but comes back null when you try to actually purchase the device.

    The demand for this product is off the chart. Hoepfully Palm wil get teh updates out soon and fix some of the issues some are facing. The phone has been working great for me with minimal problems.

    They did not pull it due to order volume or lack of stock, I just spoke to my b2b rep and he told me that there is a software patch in the works for the cingular 650 that should correct many if not all of the isues we are having. Ironically he mentioned what he thought was a fix for "bluetooth DEN" I quickly pointed out that he was talking about "DUN". I hope he was relaying good info about a DUN patch from cingular for the 650. We will see!!!

    yeah, i had a guy in here the other day, and luckily for him, i had one left over from another customer that was ineligible for migration. he said he'd been everywhere looking for one, and was surprised when the last place he thought would have it actually did.

    a patch?! that's great news for everyone. especially for those who've been having trouble getting the subsidy codes for their 650's.

    Curious because with other hot products, PT Cruiser and Volkswagen Bettle for example your was put on a wait list and the dealers were given allocations based on sales.

    Maybe they are going to announce the "660" with improved speaker phone yadayadayada and "correct" the price of the locked GSM.

    It is not just the T650 that Cingular pulled. They also pulled the SX66 PPC phone from stores. When I asked why, one rep "speculated" that Stores were losing money and sitting on non-selling inventory. I was trying to pump her for info regarding bugs in the two phones.

    Yup, pulled off the site. I logged in from Tampa and the 650 is not an option for purchase.

    If there is a patch how would it be distributed? Is it a push to the phone or a download from somewhere?

    Did you enter this with your Treo? And if so, was it set to "English"?

    My guess it would be a download from the Palmone site...I have not been with Cingular very long, with ATT for a long time, and ATT wouldnt even tell you about a patch, no was I ever aware of them ever sending some type of fix to my phone.
