    This is something that has never happended before on any device. The black handle of the stylus broke off, it is really strange as I very rearely use the stylus.

    Oh well! I just ordered a pair from the Treo Store.

    Your Stylus Broke?

    Say it isn't so!
    Oh the tragedy

    Na,
    I'm just you.

    I had my stylus break on my 750.
    I try my hardest to find ways to not use the stylus.
    I like touch screen devices, I just don't want to have to use a stylus.

    I wish you a speedy recovery.

    Sincerely,
    Berd.
    Just call me Berd.

    My stylus broke too around the time the cracks appeared on my Pro. Here is the kicker. I hardly ever used the stylus. One day I removed it to do a reset and same thing that happened to you happened to me. I received a replacement Pro (due to cracks) with a new stylus. I saw on XDA a trick to fix the stylus on the Pro. It involves glue, needles and lots of heat. Good luck.

    LOL, Berd, you are a riot. Thanks for your "non-sympathy"

    Thanks, in a way I feel good that it didn't just happen to me.

    The repair sound complicated besides I already lost the handle.

    My stylus is very solid, and I can't see it breaking in the near future... Maybe Palm doesn't have the best manufacturing process. I'm lucky, the power button on my T|X is very intact, and there has been no problem with mine, unlike others.
    Treo Pro ROCKS! I am a lucky one to have one. XPS M1730s ROCK!! (I wish I had one!) My laptop ROCKS! (Even though it isn't an M1730)

    What should have been solid aluminium is 3 pieces instead.

    Yes it will break easily.
    Just get a few OEM spares, dont shell out the $10 apiece for originals (I was quite shocked about this ripoff) - they are no better.

    The stylus on my old 650 is indestructable. I once killed a mountain lion out in the hills once when he tried to make me a snack

    I owned the damn thing for about 1 hour and suddenly the handle of the stylus just broke off while I was holing it.
    Anyway, I picked up a couple new ones from ebay.

    A friendly mountain lion makes you a sandwich and you kill it? For shame, KJ...
