A loyal Handspring customer gets screwed.
Well part of this is my own fault for jumping on Dream Pages to fast and buy the Treo 600. If anyone has suggestions I would appreciate feedback.
I got the Treoo 300 from Sprint way back in the day when they first arrived. The damn flip broke, again, then again. So the third Treo 300 I had I went back to the Sprint store and having been familiar with this issue, they offered me a Samsung I330 as a replacement. And hey, it didn't break, imagine that, althought the interface is clearly inferior.
Well what friggen choice did I have? I was tired of the Treo 300 breaking, and no it's just me, plenty of people in my office have gone through 2 or more Treo 300's because of that damned flip. I obviously needed a phone that I didn't have to hold the two pieces of it with two hands so I felt I had no choice but to get the I330 after my third break.
Why does this all suck? I layed out $499 for the first Treo 300, had nothing but agony, even went so far as to blow $675 at dream pages to give Handspring another try and I don't get any discount, not after all my agony, not after being a loyal customer and buying the latest model.
It's a wonderful world (sarcasm) when I blow $1175 worth of Handsrping out my a$$ and I can't get the same thanks ($200 rebate) that other customers got, those customers who were lucky enough to tolerate replaceing their treo 300's or just got lucky and didn't have to so they could have their sierial numbers handy.
I guess I'm dumb for buying it from Dream Pages too where it costs $75 more than from HandSpring or Sprint.
I love the phone by the way, they couldn't have done a better job with how I can navigate with that nav button and my thumb to everything. But for what I payed, it's not worth it.
Such is life.
For those of you who were smart enough to wait, I aplaud you for having more brains that me.
