Treo 650 timeline


I wanted to know if anyone had a more specific date of when the Treo 650 would be released on Sprints network. I have been waiting for this phone for a while. Any negative concerns with the phone?
😡 With Sprint REMOVING the Bluetooth capability, I'm not waiting for the Sprint release (even though I'm a current subscriber). As soon as it hits VZW, I'm switching.

As always with new equipment, Verizon is slow to adopt. So, my questions are these:
1. Any idea when Verizon will have this new Treo 650 available, and
2. If not, is the Sprint phone able to be used on the Verizon network? 😳

So switch to sprint (and more...)


Maybe if you are so sick of Sprint being first to release all the "new" phones you should consider switching to them. Their plans are much better as well, less money. Ans since I work in a hospital I get a 25% discount on my total bill.

Does anyone know of more specific plans of pricing and a timeline when they will be sold?

As usual...

As usual, Sprint's always the first to receive the best phones... I'm tired of Verizon taking forever to release a new phone!!!!!!
