    I called for a replacement a few weeks ago on my 700p and they told me they were out of stock on new phones, so I'd end up with a refurb. When it came, the battery cover would not stay on the thing and the buttons didn't push in and click right. I called them back up and they sent me another - assuring me it'd be "new". I had a strange feeling when I hung up that they either just got new stock in or they will realize they don't have any and give me a 755. I had debated in the past a few times on whether or not I'd want a 755 and decided on "not", and this got me thinking about it again. I wondered how I'd feel when I opened the box if I did get a 755 and I just thought, oh well... I guess it should be fine.

    Well, it was for a couple of days. All of a sudden, one day - sending a pic message like I always do, the phone crashes and on reboot all the text messages were gone. NEVER had this happen with my 700p. When I began using minitones to get my custom rings in the phone I realized it behaved very differently from my 700p. Ones that imported and played fine before now would not. Yet, I could beam them to another 700p and they were fine. Ok, minor detail.

    I completely started from scratch again, thinking the things that happened and the frequent reboots were just a glitch. It was fine for a few days... then, I wake up to find the screen brightly lit screen that has been frozen since 4:15am - when I have Resco scheduled to do a backup. It just froze and stayed like that til I saw it a few hours later. Not good. Again, this has NEVER happened with my 700p. A couple of days later, being very uncomfortable I completely start from scratch with the phone again. It's seemingly fine for a couple of days and then acts up again. This morning I woke up to find Warden asking me to register. I'd had it registered since I installed it, and it was fine for a couple of days. So I go to Resco to do a restore, and Resco acts like it's the first time it's ever been run.

    I don't know. I used to not worry about my Treo at all - feeling myself to be one of the lucky ones. Heck, when I had the 700 I didn't even feel the need to perform the maintenance upgrade. Now with a new phone, I don't trust this thing at all. I have installed programs, setup, and used this thing identically to my 700p - and it doesn't like it.

    Anyone else regretting their "upgrade"?

    The only issue at all I've had with the 755p is that I had to switch from SDHC to miniSDHC and rendered all of my old cards useless.

    make sure the programs you are using are the latest version and support the 755.
    Visor -> Treo 650 Cingular UNLocked (Cing. Blue Phone on Orange Network) -> vzw 700p -> VZW Centro (much better)
