Palm Verizon update 1.05a... a joke!!!

Hmmm.... I think I am going to post this on every board I can find so that as many people see this and choose another type of phone.

So here's my problem...

I have a Verizon Treo 650 which I have been using for about a year and a half.

Well my 650 crashed and died during the Verizon update to firmware 1.05a.

Funny... my 3 posts on the Palm site are now gone.
I guess they screen the posts and don't want others to see the complaints?

They called me late in the day and offered to repair my device at NO charge.

Thanks Palm for recognizing your problem with the download.
I do appreciate it.
