#7 and 8..... Verizon doesn't cripple the wifi. The mogul (6800) and the i760 both have wifi. The reason the Touch (6900) didn't have wifi compared to the much slow, less RAM GSM version is for space conservation. You can't pack everything into a tiny package. CDMA is a safer, more encripted technology, so i would guess it is bigger which means you need to make room for other things. When sprint and VZW get the same model phone, 99% of the time they have identical features. Why don't you blame the lack of wifi on Sprint as they are usually the ones to get the phones first?

Yea mr sales man we know that verizon on cripples the features of the phone so they can capitalize on making you pay for that feature. Its all good though cuz they are a business and they obvisouly know how to make the money. We the customers are still going to complain and bitch about what the other guy has and wonder why we don't but in the end we won't switch to a less incompetiant company like Sprint that can't even handle a billing department, or a much smaller network like AT&T. However remember your place your still a worker bee for the company and telling the customer what the company wants you to say is all good just stay off the post and let us grip you will still have a job in the AM cuz if we leave like I did we will come right back like I did its a cruel world outside VZW network. Its kinda like the guy that you see in the mall with a really hot girl friend and you say man he is lucky but hes over there looking at you saying man I wish I was single again.

Lol.... I don't think I could live on Verizon again... crippling bluetooth, charging for anything and everything. Yeah they are a business and need to make a profit, but a company has to be responsive to the needs of customers, and not tell customers what they think they need. Think what you want about CDMA, but it is by far a minority player worldwide and not a single major network has signed up for the 4G evolution of CDMA (not even Verizon). Then we get to the use of Brew as an application platforms.... another proprietary piece of garbage to be sure you only buy software from Verizon. BTW --- Sprint has completed their billing conversion to a single billing platform for all Sprint and Nextel customers and will be the first to launch 4G and ATTs 3G network is growing by the day.

Everybody knows Sprint will be the 1st to have this, they always have good smartphones though

I've stuck with Palm through most glitches and models. I'm hooked on the interface. I've just found Sprint reception is poor in Duluth, MN. I might elect to go to 3x5 cards instead. Best of luck to the next costly generation.

I'd love to see a version of this phone on Verizon. Unfortunately Verizon doesn't work at my house, but works well at work while Sprint is exactly the opposite and AT&T is crappy at both locations. Cant win.

I moved from a 6035 to 7135 which had terrible reception at my house to a Treo 650 which had mediocre but better reception, and now on a Treo 700w have great reception, also much better in my office. In this metro area, I doubt it is because of more cell towers. I tried the Dare but hated it after so many years with real keyboards and gave it back. I bought the 700wx on eBay to get ready for WM and have really liked it. I am running hacked 6.0 with NO problems, all in anticipation of VZW having the 800w. Now the Pro shows its face, and my only reservation is that it may have the Centro smushy keys, love the hard keys. I await an announcement daily. I am an early adapter. The point was, that newer phones MAY have better reception....
