    As I'm sure you're all aware there seems to be a shortage of Treo 650's in the UK atm... I've been waiting for 2 months to [up/down]grade my 600 to a 650 through Orange.

    Yesterday I managed to get a sim free Treo 650 for free with a Vodafone contract: 350 anytime minutes @ 20 pcm for 12 months! Great deal huh? Anyway - in store they told me that the phone was new stock and would definately be hardware rev B - unfortunately I got it home and it was rev A!

    Is there much noticable difference between the rev A's & B's - is it worth returning my phone and waiting for a rev B to come along and possibly losing out on the great deal?? I really don't want to go back to Orange as they've messed me about far too much over this upgrade.

    I've got an A - its been fine. Only swapped it on the orange insurance due to headset jack going within a couple of months. For me the orange firmware upgrade to 1.31 has made it a bit more stable. Keep it

    My A is absolutely fine (don't know the difference between the two). I'd keep the A unless you know a good reason otherwise...

    Revision A is fine. I really wouldn't worry about the hardware revision. I think you've got yourself a good deal.

    My A device has been fine. Did the shop peeps say what difference between A and B was supposed to be?

    The Rev B Sprint 650s might actually be worse than the As:

    So after all the hastle of getting an upgrade, do you think it was worth it ?
    The 650 certainly has a beautiful screen, if only it wasn't such a cack phone

    Hey Tom,

    Haven't decided yet - only started using it this morning and haven't made a call yet ;P
