    So I bought this 700w on ebay, and I hooked it up to my Verizon service and it worked fine. For a day. Then yesterday, the phone radio won't turn on and the status screen says there is no service on verizon (my girlfriend's phone works, so that's a lie). I can't turn the phone radio on, it won't come on.

    I don't know if the problem is the network or the phone, but I have tried a soft and a hard reset. Verizon wants me to send the phone back for an out of warranty exchange, they're over trying to help! Anyone here know of anything I can do to fix the issue?

    Maybe hook it up to your computer and run the most current patch?
    Palm Pilot>Palm III>Palm Color>Palm m505>Palm T5>Treo700w>vzw Treo700wx>Maybe the next gen iPhone next.

    He did say he already tried a hard reset.

    I would say to try a PRL update but since you cant turn the radio on, that would be useless advice....

    The out of warranty exchange will only cost $50, and I will probably get a better phone than the one I have, and the Ebay+the exchange still costs less than retail. But still, I was using the thing for work so I thought it might be nice to keep it working!

    no, now I can't exchange it cause I bought it on Ebay, they said. So I am pretty much in possession of an expensive palm pilot. nice.

    I bought one on Craigs List and bricked it with an update. I took it to a VZW store to have them look at it. I didnt talk about where I got it and they gave me a refurb. I was shocked. Give it a try.

    Anyone know if that means I have some sort of warranty now?

    I also purchased mine on eBay (vzw 700w)... then no sound came outta the speakers. Either one. so I called 'em up and said exactly what was wrong, they asked me a few questions, but not where I got it, and the sent me a refurb. (vzw 700w)
    Then it happened again a few months later. Went through same process... for free. (vzw 700w)
    After about 6 months, it got dropped off of a rollercoaster. Called 'em up... and apparently I have insurance. Paid the $50 deductible (for the first time), went through Asurian Insurance, and they sent me a new in box, with acessories, vzw 700wx!
    Moral of the story... go for it. Their tech support line is stupid... guarantee you could get a new phone out of them

    Never tell them you bought it on Ebay. Just tell them that your phopne stopped working after you updated it.
    Palm Treo 700w > VZW Treo 700wx
