    Got my Sprint Pro from Ebay today. Won it Tues evening and it was here by 1pm central standard. Paid $225 (no shipping). When I got it I made sure it was the new version and all is well. In case anyone is looking I can recommend besteelectronics_1 as a seller.

    Waiting to activate it tomorrow when my case gets here. I can guarantee if I took it to work tomorrow without a case I'd drop it.

    Looking forward to learning WinMo. I really appreciate all the help I've already received.

    Congrats!

    Just in case,
    call Palm and make sure it's covered under warranty.
    Just call me Berd.

    I just got mine from Ebay yesterday as well...I must admit, I was skeptical about having problems with it, but it's version 1.04, and I was able to activate it with no problem whatsoever! I paid $213/free shipping, and don't have to be locked into a 2 year contract...it's a beautiful thing.

    My last phone was the HTC Touch Pro....which I've had for about 6 months...it looked nice, but they aren't kidding when they say looks aren't everything. The battery life was TERRIBLE! I missed soooooo many phone calls/text messages/voicemails that I couldn't continue to use it.

    My first full day with the Treo Pro has been nice...it may not be as sexy as the HTC device, but it's definitely much better marriage material, haha.

    Would you mind sharing the name of the seller, so others may attempt to get a 1.04 firmware version STP?

    Yes, please do call or chat with Palm to check on the serial number and supportability and share their response.

    that would probably help huh? haha. The seller was ryanpat11. I inquired about whether I was purchasing a 1.03 or 1.04, and was told that he had both, so I asked for a 1.04, and that's what I got.

    Congrats! I bet you were the one that beat me out of the first phone I tried bidding on

    Thanks! congrats to you as well, for getting 1.04 on ebay!

    I'm computer/ppc stupid, so learning how to use this phone to it's fullest capability is going to take some time. I'm still trying to download opera mobile, and even after reading a couple threads in here, having no luck! haha

    I used this seller as well and got 1.03 the first time (I assumed I was getting the latest and greatest). I contacted him and he sent out the 1.04 the same day. As soon as I receive it, I will send back the old.

    Seems like a good guy to work with. Got it for $225.

    I emailed that seller... told me there was not much of a difference in 1.03 and 1.04... then said his/her competitors was putting out wrong information. In addition stated that if I wanted, I could take 1.03 and trade it in at sprint since it came with a 1 year warranty.

    Never did answer if he/she had a 1.04 available or if I could get the phone for $225. The reply was a rant... lol

    I'm too old and lazy to jump. So, I'll have to settle for a bump.

    I know there was at least one seller that specifically advertised 1.04 firmware, not sure if anyone from here purchased from him though.

    I'm embarrassed to say I didn't understand what you meant at first. (Thought you were just joking about posting a "bump."

    After eating lunch and having some caffeine, I now realize what you meant.

    I'm seriously debating getting a TP. I still love my 800w, but and now worried that I've been lucky and mine might die suddenly one day.

    I usually like to have a backup device anyway since I like to beta test and still need my device for work, so this might not be a bad choice with the decent prices on ebay.

    Just thinking...

    The ebay prices certainly make it compelling without using up any contract or yearly discount. Of course the ebay prices may drop even more when pre comes out.

    I just won a treo pro on ebay for $203.50. I emailed the seller to let him know that i requesting version 1.04 and not 1.03. I'll let you guys know what his response is and how it goes. If all goes well i will have now have an HTC Touch Pro and a Palm Treo Pro as my back up
