    So my Company has blocked access from any non Windows Mobile phones on the Exchange Server so that unsupported iPhones wouldn't be able to access the network, but this means they have blocked the Palm OS also

    So now I'm looking around for deals on a Palm 800w. I have a 755p right now and am 1 year into a 2 year contract. On Sprints site they'll be more then happy to have me sign another 2 year contract and have me pay a discount price of $524.99 but for that price I'm looking in eBay for a lower price and no contract.

    Does anyone have a lead where I can get the 800w for around $250 after rebates when you are currently in a contract? Should I contact the retention department of Sprint and worm my way into a discount? Anyone have that direct phone number?

    Thanks! Timmay

    Have you looked at Best Buy for $189?

    I believe that is for new customers with a 2 year soul sucking contract. I wouldn't mind this price (even if there is a mail in rebate). Has anyone tried getting this phone that was currently under a contract?

    Thanks, Tim

    Looks like my company didn't turn off the email. idk what or how but the email now works. I'll just chalk it up as a quirk and save the $.

    I just called *2, said cancel to get to retentions and was able to get an 800w for 249 without any rebates needed. They are sending me the phone today. I was a little over a year into my contract and had already renewed it for 2 years about 6 months ago for a $75 credit. I had to renew for 2 years again for the Treo 800w, but since I am on SERO 30, I am def. ok with that!

    Well seeing how Sprint wants $250 from new customers I just decided to look for one on eBay and I got it for $255 and $15 shipping. So no contract agreement, I can sell my 755p (along with the cradle and the 2nd battery), and my email will work flawlessly. Right now it's on and off and when you live 90% of your life on the road this is unacceptable.

    So for now i'm back to Windows Mobile, but hopefully the next Treo I buy will have Nova running on it... that or a CDMA Treo Pro!

    Good luck with yours... I'm struggling to find a reason to keep mine over the 700wx I have sitting on the desk.

    I was able to get sprint down to $199 (well not really since they overcharged me on taxes in the tune of $49 and some change). So I ended up at $250 anyway. But then you figure you have to buy the extended battery and that is another $50.

    I'm fighting to convince myself that this treo is worth $300...

    I can see the bottom connector breaking in 8 months... and the battery door is a poor design considering this is a windows mobile device (resets). Wifi and everything else is great, but you can very well use that stuff with the current battery.

    An extended battery, or at least a backup battery is going to by my first purchase. I hope Palm makes a cradle with dual battery charging. I love this about my current Treo 755p's cradle. that or a stand alone charger.

    I agree with you.... if I keep my 800w, the first thing I'll buy is an extended battery. But I'm thinking that palms comes out with a 800w"x" later this year that is much like the Q9c, shipped with an extended battery and other updates.

    I would not be surprised if palm released an extended battery for the 800w... I almost thing they "must" release this battery. My only concerns with extended batteries is the fact that you see so many reviews about them not proving the "extra" as advertised. Think I'd still get one though.

    I've even thought briefly about buying a "regular" battery to exchange, but the door on the 800w is so hard to remove... I'm worried that I'll eventually break one of the plastic pieces over time or the device itself from squeezing too hard.
