    Thanks for the encouragement!!

All I needed to do was to go to a main VerizonWireless store and visit the technician.
    So, thats what I did... of course I got in there and the woman was like "we don't have the 700wx".. I told her they did, I had just called... she was like... "oh, hmmm,"... walked away and came back with a Brand New 700wx!!!
    Then, it took themn 35 excrutiating minutes to activate the new one... huh? Its there "Process" I was told.

    Any way 45minutes later I had a new 700wx... didn't pay a dime!!!!

    Hope its more stable than the 700w!!!

    Good luck all!!

    just spent 1 1/2 hours on the phone with verizon. i've been through 4 phones (700w) and they were like yes, you are on the 3 strike thing, but you should take it into a store so they can look at the device and see what problems you are having. then they will look up that you are on the 4th device and most likely swap you for the new model...

    i'm just worred that it is kinda hard to convince them the phone is not working by factory spec, because 32 MB was factor spec....yes, it sucks...any ideas?

    Try to load cnn.com or espn.com in front of them & allow them to witness the phone completely freeze. That should take care of it.

    Not the PDA version but the regular page. Especially cnn.com,that's a better example.

    This would be the second replacement but they were like you have the W, so we have to replace it with the W eventhought W is discontinued. Any ideas? I am getting tired of the memory issue on this phone(and palm I guess) and I might just ebay a few things just to get the XV6800(off ebay a while after it comes out). Actually I might get the WX if they can give me a free replacement(unlike last time they said nothing about a fee and acted like I owed nothing but in actuallity had to pay 50 needless to say my father fixed that issue after hours of complaining).

    have them send another refurb...then when you get it..."it might have issues" that you have to call them back on....then be very very nice as that will be your 3rd strike and you will get a new phone....but be very nice and ask for the 700wx as a replacement given all the trouble you have had with the 700w....that is about the best thing I can tell you.
  13. #253  
    they said they will give me a new W and nothing else.
  14.    #254  
    I have been down that road several times Just call back during normal hours (8-5)ish and try again....make just take the right person....but first you need them to have the 3rd strike rule in effect so you have one more refurb to go through.

    is there any way around it? but then again i am leaning towards getting the new xv6800 comes out I guess this is pointless.
  16.    #256  
    then i would not waste my time if i just wanted a different phone anways.
  17. #257  
    so let say i get this phone replace to another W because of the memory issues and then the 6800 comes out a few months latter. will I be able to upgrade to that with the 3 strikes rule and how much would I have to pay? I only ask this because I happy with my treo but the way I see it is HTC has better support than the palm. Just look at all the HTC phones that can be upgrade AKU 3.3 and 3.5 when we are still 2.2 or something.

    All I can say is that this phone rocks.

    I'm on a T600 with Verizon so it's time for me to upgrade. I'm thinking I'll go get the 700wx soon. The thing that is killing me is the 240x240 screen. The 650 had 320x320 and all current Palm devices do. Why do the modern Windows Mobile devices (750, 700w and 700wx) all have 240x240? Is it because WM licensing costs Palm a lot more than Palm OS so they need to cut corners somewhere to keep prices down? Thus using a less resolution screen? Or am I missing something else?

    @AdamF

    WM5 does not support 320x320, but it does support 240x240. Palm put a cheaper screen in for 240x240 since that's all WM5 could support. WM6 does support 320x320, but the current WM Treos screen is limited to 240x240. Therefore, even if we see a WM6 upgrade, we will be limited to 240x240 unless we change out our screens. Shadomite is currently working on a project to put a 650 or 700p screen on a 700wx.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 700wx -> Mogul -> Touch Pro
