    Put me down for I agree. I first came here about 6 weeks ago, and there was a lot of good information and I enjoyed looking through the new posts every day. Now the New Posts are filled with conspiracy theories and posts about information obtained from my neighbor's cousin's dog walker's sister's best friend who went to school with a guy that knows a dog who's owner heard through the grape vine that there might be GSM version of the Treo 650 that definately will or will not be released on some carrier, some time soon or far away.

    Keep all of the hearsay and anger in one thread or one sub-forum. If you have a Treo, post factual info or questions in the Treo 600/650 forum. If you want to whine and moan that PalmOne is the devil but you bought a phone from them anyway, keep it in a thread clearly marked as such.

    Awww... let the the gsm folx have their fun. Things will return to normal soon. Sprint folx got to do the same thing leading up to the release. Not only did they have the same agonizing wait leading to the release, they had to sit back, drool and continue to wait while the Sprint folx got to play with and flash around their shiny new toy for a month or two. Its only fair they get the same phases:

    -pre-excitment and conspiracy theory threads
    -the "Is my phone EVER gonna ship?" threads
    -the "I got my phone!!" threads
    -the gsm review threads
    -the "How do you do this" threads
    -the "This is better, this is worse than the t600" threads
    -the "This sucks I'm going to PPC" threads.
    -the "P1 is the devil or one of his close relatives" threads
    -the endless reset, quirks and bugs threads
    -the "Why are u complaining? If you dont like the phone take it back" threads
    -the "I did take it back now I'm on my one millionth treo" threads
    -and in addition the "why they charge so much for data" and when is evdo coming threads, sim card threads and the all the comparisons between gsm and cdma version to see if p1 improved features or fixed bugs.

    Personally, I like watching the excitement unfold. It was new to you now its new to them. Let them have their place in the sun too.

    Well said. I'm one of those so-called GSMers, and for the record, I was here when all the buzz/speculation/b*tching was about the Sprint 650. I enjoyed every minute of it, and was glued to my computer/treocentral for like a week straight. Why can't you just let us, GSMer's, have our day?

    How selfish can you get?

    Anyone considering posting to this thread.... read this over and over--then reconsider. This is pretty much all that needs to be said. In fact, "Hey mod's--why not close this one before it gets out of hand?".

    Doomer, thanks for the realistic perspective (from an anxiously waiting GSM'er...).

    However, I'm not not saying I'm sick of the GSM talk. If someone prefers a different carrier and has to wait on the 650, I can feel empathize with them. It's a great phone and well worthy of the anxious excitement. I'd be chomping at the bit, too. It would be foolish to switch carriers soley because of a particular phone.

    This whole GSM vs CDMA is just BS.

    That's the point of this thread. All "Who's with me threads" are OT, they shouldn't be posted here. Delete or move them all. How bout some relevant thread about the 650 not 'when' am I getting the 650.

    In your opinion where should we move them?
    Not off topic since they are treo related.
    Treo general? yeah maybe
    GSM US? how about the international people waiting for the unlocked model
    treo 650 hardware? it is about the hardware (even though people haven't received it yet)

    Get my point these threads don't really fit in 1 particular forum they are kinda cross forum. I could move them with a link in the original forum(s) but then they would show up in all the forums, guess that is not what you want either.

    The same thing happened when the sprint model was being released. People get exited and want to talk about it. And with all the mystery about the release date there is just more speculation..
    Once it starts shipping, things will go back to different, so for now just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride

    I really did not understand Advance The Man's anger. He is now only experiencing what GSMers experienced the day Sprint's 650 shipped. People were excited. I hated seeing all those stupid post -- "Unpleasant Memory," "So Long PalmOne", "It's beautiful!" "Journal of PPC User" etc. Ad Noseum. I started off saying I did not understand his anger, but I do because I went through it. Welcome to the club. Mod Toolkit -- thanks for your understanding. We need a place to be heard.

    The main difference is the GSM'ers didn't already have there phone when we were *****in. Now that everyone has the phone, there should be helpful threads, not a schematic on when someone ordered, when someone called customer service, what they said, when she said it may ship, etc. All the "who's with me" threads should be deleted.

    Don't you think that is kinda selfish?
    The CDMA people could have these kinds of threads, but now you have yours, others can't?

    As said before this will soon finish when people get their treo's and things will go back to normal..
