    This is a question for those of you who got your 650 somewhere OTHER than your carrier. For example, you are a tmo customer and bought it on ebay. How have your experiences been when you have a hardware problem?

    I am a tmo person and have never bought an unlocked outside of tmo. With the issues people have been having with the 650 I am nervous that I will be looking at a lot of red tape if I run into a problem.

    When I had a problem with my tmo-subsidized phone, I was able to just walk into a tmo store and they replaced it in 3 minutes. How does it work if I have a hardware issue with the 650 I bought new on ebay?

    I bought a Cingular branded unlocked 650 on Ebay. I called Palm to get the new style sim tray and they sent it to me no problem. But, When I asked the guy that was helping me what would happen if I had a problem he told me that they would replace it for the first 90 days and between that and the one year point I would have to go through Cingular. Well obviously that would not help me because I have it with T-Mobile.
    I am past the 90 day mark so hopefully I will not have any serious problems.
    I am curious to hear any other responses to this one.

    I bought a brand new in a sealed box unbranded Treo 650 from E-bay. It cost $465.00. The warranty that came in the box says that there is a one-year warranty and a 90 day replacement warranty. I registered it when I first loaded the software. I am running it on tmo and the only problems I had was when I installed Xiino. That prompted the phone to keep resetting itself and only a hard reset cured the problem. Since than it has been functioning flawlessly, including full Interned with the T-zones workaround. Of course, it has been only two weeks and I am not the kind of guy who likes to load on all sorts of funky software.

    Not to go off topic on my own thread, but are there any more where that came from? IM me the eBay user ID if you don't mind.
