    As I'm awaiting the replacement for my Treo with a dead backlight, I'm reading the forum here and am amazed at how many people have had failures. I wonder if we could do a survey to see how many people here have had problems with any Treo.

    Kicking it off:

    My first Treo had the loose stylus issue.
    My replacement Treo worked for a little over a week and died with a dead backlight.
    My third treo arrived the day after I reported the failure on the second one, and is operational out of the box. Not sure, but the screen seems whiter than I recall.

    180 backlight died after 4 months.
    Now on unit no. 2.

    Treo 180 #1: 3 days, dead radio.
    Treo 180 #2: about 3 months or so, going strong... *woodknock*

    Treo #1: Dead Radio
    Treo #2: Non-Responsive buttons
    Treo #3: No sound (ringer) - right out of the box!

    The bright side?: $10 off coupon on my next purchase.

    My new treo has arrived today, I hope it's ok!

    Treo #1: Perfect.

    Treo 270 #1: Screen went out after 1 week
    Treo 270 #2: Lid didn't spring open firmly (would flop a little when you held the treo)
    Treo 270 #3: Great

    Remember that you're more likely to hear about the failures than the successes. That's the nature of a board... Just something to keep in mind.

    Have had my Treo-270 since June of this year. No problems so far. Love it!

    No problems. The major changes are the ones that I have done myself.

    Update 1.0 - great but hated the Proxy Server issue

    Update 1.1 - much better but started having problems hearing the first 5 seconds of incoming call conversation. The GPRS works like a charm though.

    Eudora Mail - great but hate that caps lock issue.
    Snapper Mail - Outstanding.

    Only Hacks - Glow Hack to turn the light on automatically at night.

    Now I want a 270... with Bluetooth and backup.

    270 worked fine since 1 July. Even the GPRS upgrade went OK.
    Touch wood, naturally.

    No problems at all with my 270.
    (You'll get more responses from those with problems.)
    You may be right; I may be crazy. But, the Treo may be just the device I've been looking for.

    #1 - 4 months then dead speaker
    #2 - 2 days then dead speaker
    #3 - Here's hoping

    BTW it still echos like hell (or so I've been told by folks on the other end) is there anything I can do to fix it?

    im on my 3rd 180, the first 2 both had speakerphones that gave out after a few months.

    dannoz: the 1.1 update fixed my echo, and added GPRS

    I've had one 180 and one 270, no problems with either unit.

    sigh... as much as I love HS and the Treo....

    April - bought Treo 180

    May - phone speaker stopped working, paid $25 to get replacement sent

    June - returned Treo again because phone kept freezing and requiring soft resets when I hung up

    October - getting ready to return it for the third time - too often it drops network coverage when I know there is coverage, and mysteriously, a black line has appeared vertically up the screen....

    I love the damned thing, but how many replacements do I have to get before I get one that won't fail me?!?

    I considered myself lucky--my wife and I got our Treo 180s in April, and they have been trouble free until 2 weeks ago, when my speaker died. I got a no-charge Advance Replacement under warranty. Yesterday, my wife's Treo speaker went out. This time I had a pitched battle requiring several phone calls to Customer Service and Tech Support to get the $25 fee refunded on the Advance Ship. I told them that this was not some isolated incident but was a serious and recognized engineering/design flaw, and that they could take a visit to Treocentral and see what was posted there next to the Handspring ads. These units are not abused. We are not big phone users, and don't over-stress the flip cover/speaker. This does not bode well.
