    Not bad! I was hoping I would get some value for my 6 month old 650 when I upgrade to the 700. Mine was listed as $142. I said it was in "Good" condition because it has a few tiny paint chips on the top even though I keep it in a cover.

    It actually looks like you can trade in any device - not just a 650.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    That's true; I'll change the title if it lets me.

    Yeah, I got the $142 quote also. I guess it's better than nothing.
    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    I don't think I would get more on Ebay, especially with a new device coming out, unless I added a lot of accessories, which is silly, because my accessories will work with the 700P. The only thing that I bet will bring my value down is the battery. I sold my OEM battery because I have two Seido batteries. I don't know if it's worth it to buy a Palm battery to get the higher value.

    I just thought about it, I can send them the OEM battery from the 700p (duh). I think I can get $200-$250 if I sell it to a friend. I have one who is jealous because I sold my Cingular Treo to my boss and didn't ask her first. Since she's with Sprint, getting mine would be perfect.

    My 8MB graphite Handspring Visor Deluxe (excellent condition), my Handspring Treo 180 (good condition), and my PalmOne Treo 600 (poor condition) are worth exactly ZERO dollars in trade-in value.

    I was honest in the asessments and even tried upgrading the condition of the 600 to good, but still ended up with a goose egg.

    Lucky me, I have a Treo 650 en route. I'll turn to eBay and probably get back the cost of the 650 for my unused devices.

    My m515 was quoted for $20, I'll keep it for the nostalga. I am definitely going to use this for my Treo 650, $142 is more than I thought I'd get for my 650. Thanks for the tip.

    I'd bet you'd get more on Ebay than $142. I know in previous upgrades (Treo 300 and Treo 600), I got around $250. It seems like the prices are around $250-300 now, so maybe you'll only get $200-$250, when the 700P comes out. Then again maybe the trade-in value that Palm is willing to give goes lower than $142 as well when the 700P comes out.

    This is a great find. When something like this comes out from PALM, you know a new device is really right around the corner now.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet:

    I just received this e-mail from Palm this morning. I realize you have to purchase another phone from Palm, but the price they gave me is not bad. It beats the Sprint buy back price. I will also post over at Treo Central.

    Not to be skeptical of your link or anything, but HOW is this a "trade-up" program when they only accept Treo 650s as the highest palm listed. Unless you have a 650 this is NOT for anyone with a 700w looking to upgrade to the next and latest Treo.

    Also, they are willing to send you money for the trade-IN not UP.

    The money they're offering for used machines is, to put it mildly, humorous. $33.00 for a Zodiac 2? I could put mine and its accessories on eBay and get ten times that much, if I wanted to sell it, which I don't.

    Do NOT send email to harv at treocentral dot com - it will never reach me.. forwarding from that address to my real address was hijacked in early 2008, and I can't fix it.. send me a private message instead or email me directly at my RR address..

    I was getting really amped about this when.... I realized I am out of contract in july and I'm probably going to wait to pick up a P if its out. Does anyone think that the buy back price of the 650 will go down after the 700p is released?

    Yeah, they should let poor 700W owners trade up to a 650!

    You'd definitely get more on eBay.

    They have. I wasn't attempting to "discover" something that has already been there. However, I thought it was timely since many are contemplating the 700p while at the same time (like myself) wondering what to do with their 650. It was news to me when I saw the email this morning promoting it. I normally don't read the Palm Newsletters but that headline caught my eye.

    Ebay would be the way to go its just I am not sure how long my 650 will last after I am done with it. I'D rather not put someone else in a bind like that. Then again thats a risk you run buying used. IMHO

    You should definitely get more than $142 for the 650. Assuming you have the original box with everything that it came with, it would be as if whomever is interested in buying it is getting a new phone. Good deals can be obtained from carriers, but are attached to contracts. Buyers could get the best of both worlds by buying a used phone. I sold my 600 last Fall and got around $200, I believe.
