It ain't much, but here is something from Verizon:

Coming Soon!

Fast, powerful, and intuitive, the Treo 755p delivers everything you need in one stylish device including wireless email, a built-in web browser and rich media capabilities. The slimmed-down form factor of this smartphone comes with full QWERTY keyboard and color touch-screen to make composing email and surfing the web easy.


No definition of "soon", but at least they say it is coming on their website.

Seems to be a hidden page on their site.

Let me check with the folks that sent me the link and see if they'll give me the OK to post.

I did a quick Google search for "verizon 755p coming soon" and found plenty of good hits.

A link to a Verizon page from the first hit is here:

The wait continues......

1st off, stop writing in caps, you look ridiculous...

Sprint had an exclusive on the phone, which is why they had it first. And if you want to port out over phone selection then go! Sprint and att's phone selection is waaaaay overrated. And sprint is losing customers by the thousands. There is more to a phone company that the newest gadget. And if thats all you care about, then maybe you would be happier with another carrier.

Verizon has released 16 new phones in the past few months with still more to come in december and January.

Do what you feel is right for your needs, but ranting and complaining wont make the phone come any sooner. Be patient like everyone else or if you really are that sick of things, then port out!

Haha, Thank you for saying something. I was just about to tell him to check his caps when I read your reply.

Now that being out of the way. I understand that Verizon has released a lot of new phones, and that they have more to come. I also understand that Sprint had an exclusive on this phone. But I would say that your point about "There is more to a phone company than the newest gadget" is very similar to what Verizon themselves always say as an excuse for having sucky phones.

I will admit that in recent years Verizon's selection has been getting better, but the problem is that up until very recently Verizon's greed has (in my opinion) hurt their customers. Verizon is now blaming the 755p push back's on testing like they do with all...

FWIW I was in a Verizon store this weekend and tried to get an update on a release date. Left the store after getting a blank stare from the dude on the floor which was followed by the now standard line of "They do not tell us about new products."

Verizon has a viciously effective training program if they can get all of their customer facing employees to mouth the phrase "They do not tell us about new products." I can not believe that that is a good message for their sales folks to be putting out, but they seem to have trained every sales and customer service employee to say those exact words.

Looks like it is now available per Verizon's website.

Now the question is "Do I feel lucky?" If it took them this long to get it out, what kind of pain and suffering is in store for the early adoptors? Do I jump now, or wait for a bit?

Anyone with experience getting a just-released device from these folks?
