Treo 650, RIP

The jack for the headset broke within 60 days of phone ownership.

Other then that, the Treo 650 has worked.

Yesterday though?

The "visual button" for talk/speakerphone/bluetooth decided to no
longer display.

Then the antenna fell off while I was at the coffee shop.

Trying to find a screw in the device to move to where the antenna
went, l discovered that it only has two screws left in it.

Then the case I carry it in broke.

The bluetooth headset lost one of its ear pieces on the way to bowling.

All in the span of a day...

I'd been waiting, either hoping Ocean's Helios would become available
for Cingular, or that the iPhone would be released (though I wanted
to wait several months before getting it... in fear of having a first
generation product...).

Suck... so the replacement? A Treo 680. It still runs Palm, it has a
bit more memory... and I can just sync everything into it and move on.

At least it was only annoying.

It worked, eh? You mean other than when you'd place a call and the call would connect, but you couldn't talk to each other? I love that feature.

Warranty expired well over a year ago.

Plus I hacked the roms... so its a bit out of warranty anyway :)
