On the hunt for an unlocked Treo 650

I have been checking out the TreoCentral forums and see there is an application out called VolumeCare that appears to improve on the low volume issue that was one of my primary gripes. palmOne, now Palm, Inc. again, released a ROM update to fix the NVFS issue so now it looks like the Treo 650 is where it should have been in the first place. As a result, I want my Treo 650 back and thus am on the hunt for an unlocked Treo 650. If any readers know where I could get one at a reasonable price, please let me know. I am really kicking myself now for getting rid of such a nice package (extra battery, sync/charge cable, Piel Frama case, extra stylus pack, and screen protector) and will try to be a bit more patient in the future. I could get one at a good price from T-Mobile if they would ever add it to their selection since I still have my original Nokia 3650 and have never upgraded my phone through them.

    Check out craigslist.org as there are always some deals there. I am looking at getting a 650 too, but wondering if I would be better off getting the next one with more RAM. The all in one is something that more than appeals to me, and I want to stay PalmOS.

    Julie at the-gadgeteer has indicated she was shopping for a new phone to replace her unlocked 650. Might be worth sending her an email.

    Thanks, but that one is actually a CDMA version phone and I need a GSM one. I am working with a couple people from TreoCentral and may get a deal worked up pretty soon.

    Sorry about that. Where I live there is no GSM so it never crossed my mind. Good luck anyway.

    Hey there, buddy! So you’re going to be picking up another Treo 650, huh? Didn’t you just sell a Treo a few months ago? I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one to have does that. 😀

    I may actually be selling my Treo 650, (a Sprint version, unfortunately.) I love the Treo’s beautiful screen and the thumboard, but I really just prefer having a small phone and a separate PDA. Especially in the summertime, I have often found that the Treo was just too big for me. But to each his own…

    Good luck with your Treo search.
