    I was wondering if anybody had any luck buying a Treo 650 off of Ebay. I see a lot of them up for sale but Im very wary of them because a lot of the sellers have 0's for feedback and have a membership date as of Feb '05. I also saw this listing (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...756008276&rd=1) which if I am reading it correctly the seller is making you pay him $9.99 to buy the phone through him and his "rebate". The pricing is the same as TC for new customers though. Am I missing something here?

    As a long-time EBay junkie...If it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and always beware the new listers.

    I see bidding wars over them & the price going higher than what I can order it from palmOne for.

    Not all Treo 650 sales on eBay are scams. I may be selling my Sprint Treo 650 in a couple of weeks. I'm interviewing for a job in the Middle East and will need to change over to a GSM phone. I'll be getting another Treo 650, no doubt about it. I've had a few minor glitches, but overall I love the thing. I'll probably wind up putting out the full $700 for a new unlocked GSM phone from Pa1mOne, and trying to recoup part of the $500 ($650 incl. tax - $150 rebate) I spent on the current phone. My eBay handle is the same one I use here, so it should be easy to spot. Not a lot of eBay sales, but membership since 1999 and 100% positive feedback.

    I have bought and sold a few on ebay - can't say I never had a problem , but it has always worked out well.

    The rule ALWAYS applies - If it looks too good to be true, it is ! Other than that, use your credit card to pay as this might offer some protection.

    Yes, looks legit, but think about what you're doing: the price with shipping is $538.48 (including shipping). You can go to PalmOne right now and order the same phone - brand new with FULL WARRANTY for $549 with free overnight shipping. This is getting to be the norm on eBay these days; prices are way too high for "Buy it Now" or bidders bid the items up well past market value.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.
