    Sad but true! He is just 3 so he does not really get how expensive this bad behavior was. The toilet did not have waste in it, and was only submerged for about 10 seconds (enough time for me to hear it go in, guess what it was, and race into the bathroom). Not surprisingly, it is dead. I went out an bought a 650 as a replacement because now it seems that I can not live without one.

    Any ideas on what to do with my old one? It will not power up but still looks real nice.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I'm sure people would be interested in parts from it.

    Contact PalmOne, and see if they will repair/replace it for a charge. Then sell the your replaced unit on ebay.

    Let your son keep it as a toy. Make sure you let his first girl friend know all about the Treo!! >:-)

    Take it apart and dry it out. All might not be lost. Worth a try.

    When my sons were little, the put a tennis ball down the toilet. Happened on a Friday night. Miserable weekend trying to fix it before calling a plumber on Monday morning.

    At least yours didn't flush. Mine did.

    I dropped my Treo 600 in the lake, ended up getting it out, took it apart, dried it out thouroughly and it worked fine.

    Electronics are funny things. If you pull the battery ASAP, and let it sit for a week or so in a good position for draining you may discover that it recovers from this event.

    If you have paid for (valid) insurance through your cell provider, you can just pay the $50 or so and have it replaced.

    Explain to your son that they mitigated the NVFS issues on the 650, and although there are still a few other problems with the device they are not sufficient to throwing the thing in the toilet anymore.
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    Is your son's name Tundy? Evidently he thinks your Treo is a piece of Poo. The Forum That Asks, "Are You Not Entertained?"

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."
