Treo Number Eight

One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven

Treo Number Seven lasted over a year. I think that is a record for me and Treos. It was a good Treo. But then last week I dropped it. Um… well… OK… I didn’t drop it. I got frustrated with something it was doing and I… um… kinda accidentally… well… um… I sorta threw it. And it hit the ground hard. After that the keyboard didn’t want to work any more. Ooops.

Luckily, this is why I have insurance on these phones. But as it turned out we didn’t even need it. Brandy went into the Sprint store while I was at work one day to just make sure they couldn’t fiddle with a couple screws and make the keyboard work again. They couldn’t fix it. But they did tell her that because of something or other on the plan we have with Sprint, they could replace it there for free. They were out of stock of Treo 650s though, so they would just have to give me a Treo 700. They were out of stock of 700’s too, but they could order those. But I’d just have to settle for a free upgrade.

Drat, I was so upset by that! :-)

Anyway, we just picked up my new phone a couple of hours ago. It has several improvements over the 650, including higher data speeds. So this should be good. Later tonight or this weekend I’ll get all the 3rd party software installed on there that I use regularly and sync with the contacts and such on my computer. But this is good.

And no, I did not do it on purpose so I could get a new phone. Really. :-)

But in any case, now I have my 8th Treo… and my first Treo 700. 700p to be specific.
