    Verizon T650 pre-orders being taken on Mytreo.net

    I just went to www.mytreo.net and saw that they were taking pre-orders for the new Verizon Treo 650? They claimed that VZW would release it the third week in April.

    Is this an April Fool's joke?

    Here is the link:

    Let me know what you think!!

    I don't think that it's a joke, but a way to tie up your order until they are available- Which could be 1-6 months ?
    A lot of people ordered the GSM model - when announced by PalmOne- placed their pre-orders with 3rd party vendors and "road shows" then waited in most cases longer than people who ordered later direct from PalmOne for the shipments. The carriers and PalmOne will always get product first - after it's at least announced.

    Treo 650 Announced on Verizon website!

    OK, it is finally official! Verizon will be offering the Treo 650. They just added it to their website as "coming soon". This puts all the rumors to rest.

    Now the question is...

    WHEN???

    I like the Bluetooth disclaimer (guess they learned from their V710 experience), looks like DUN will be disabled. No mention of EV-DO.

    Verizon posted web page for Treo 650

    Hey guys, I know it's not related, but I'm hoping that Verizon will do the same for the i730 when it is close to release.

    Does this mean the Treo 650 is coming before the i730???

    Cool. How did you find this link?

    It may have been in response to yesterdays Washington Post article about more and more cusotmers complaining about carriers not letting you bring your phone with you when you switch, and how Sprint has had the 650 for months but VZW still doesn't.

    Verizon Treo 650 announced

    I hope no one has posted this yet in this forum. I looked briefly. Sorry if it was. It was posted in the Samsung i730 forum already.

    Not to be an a-hole, but we've known this for 4 days.
    Read the other threads.
    Now if you know when it's coming out or how much...

    I just came from Treo Central or as I like to call it Hostile Central back to my safe haven and the first thing I read is a statement getting flammed.

    Well not exactly flammed but not the exact words June Cleaver would have used any way,,,

    And I notice some crazy similarities here the 2 of you have been members for awhile but one of you has 10 posts and the other 15.

    Heres why thats crazy, A user with 10 posts whose been a member for quite awhile must do more reading than posting and wouldnt post an old news post,,,,

    Also a user with 15 posts whose been a member for quite awhile would be in the same boat and probably not the type to post everytime someone post out of line.

    So coincidentaly both of just probably dont visit here much.

    I'm not trying to start a new arguement, Im just curious

    When the hype about the Kyocera 7135 came out 2 years ago, I registered to post about it because my VZW contract was running down and I had questions.
    I ended up buying a Samsung A530, which isn't a PDA phone so I stopped coming here.
    With VZW now closing in on the 650, I've returned to check this place out for info.
    I'm sorry about my previous post, but I belong to quite a few message boards and one thing I can't stand is when someone doesn't look through a few day-old threads before starting a redundant one.
    I admit, I could have kept my mouth shut and I should have.

    One of the things that people like the best about this board- as opposed to the other one- is the lack of "noise".

    Real information, instead of flaming and bashing can usually be found HERE!

    I totaly agree I hate repeat threads.

    But, the redundant threads at TC are my favorite because the good old boy are very creative and extremely funny when the send the nonsearcher down in flames

    No matter how much a board encourages a user to read the posting rules some users will repeat threads. If one of my threads gets repeated I'm mad for days. Its as if they stood right in front of me facing my crowd and took my words. So Im glad you mentioned that this was a repeat.

    This board is alittle cleaner but that may be because its alittle less busy. I dont like the pressure thinking that everything I type should be useful content but I realy like the people here and hope youall stick around for awile

    Heres a torching session that had me ROTFLMAO link

    There has to be a moderate amount of torching for my amusement and to keep the board clean.
