Sprint, really turning it around?

The Treo 800w failed network compatibility tests with both Verizon and Sprint, states a source from Palm, and Sprint still thinks it's alright to release the device first, with "exclusivity". Is this Sprint's idea of change??
When was the network compatibility tests done? What is the position of your Palm source? Is that person on the team that design and tested the Treo 800w? ๐Ÿคจ

Congrats Sprint users! It's still big and bulky and that keyboard is just way too crammed!

I'd be interested in this phone if it didn't have Windows Mobil on it.

I'm one of the rare breed that actually LIKES the Palm OS. I'll be the first to admit that I am a simpleton when it comes to operating systems and a BIG reason I love my Treo 755 is that it is so easy to use.

I had the HTC touch for about 2 weeks and couldn't stand the Windows OS. I guess if I gave it more time, I may get use to it, but It only took a day or two to figure out my Treo 755.
I don't like the HTC touch version of windows either. If you look at the mogul or ACE Windows versions they are a lot better IMO...

I just picked up the Instinct yesterday. I know I've got 30 days to return it. But if the 800w is only sold online how can I exchange my Instinct for it?
its in stores today as well
