Treo 700w Now Available To Buy


Finally, the Treo 700w is now available to buy directly from Palm (and shortly also from the Treonauts Smartphone & Accessories Shop) either with or without a new Verizon contract.

The Treo 700w is available for $399 with a 2 year contract and an unlimited data plan or $499 with a 1 year contract – both require an activation fee of $35.  Additionally, existing Verizon Wireless customers can purchase the Treo 700w without a new agreement for $649.

There are two available categories of service plans.  The first is a “PDA/Smartphone Voice & Data Choice Bundle” which combines both voice and unlimited data in one plan (starting at $79.99 for 450 minutes and $169.99 for 4,000 minutes).  The second is “America’s Choice National Plans” which is primarily a voice plan (starting at $39.99 for 450 minutes and up to $199.99 for 6000 minutes) with an optional data package costing $24.99 for 10MB, $44.99 for unlimited data or Pay-As-You-Go data at the equivalent of $15 per megabyte. 

There is no doubt that if you want to make the most of Verizon’s fast EVDO data network which the Treo 700w fully supports then a Voice & Data Bundle with included unlimited data will provide you with the best value.

Additionally, if you’re not currently a Verizon Wireless customer but would like to use the Treo 700w you can keep your existing phone number even if you switch.  If you decide to transfer your number, Verizon will help you check your eligibility and make sure you meet all requirements once you've selected a mobile service plan.

In terms of Treo 700w accessories, as I’ve mentioned before many of the existing Treo 650 ones including cables, chargers and BT headsets will all work fine and you can view the full list of available accessories by selecting “Treo 700w” next to the “Select Your Treo” option on the top left corner of the Treonauts Shop.

Treonauts always have the best smartphone

Yes but sadly it looks like it doesn't offer a long distance option?? My lady lives across the country right now, and it says through verizon, -non-verizon customer- long distance calls are $0.20/minute... Is there any alternative to this? aside from buying my girl a cheap verizon phone to talk to me on? :) (honestly, email me if you can answer this question.)

by Doug | Jan 5, 2006 10:39:58 AM

You are wrong about the pricing. The 700w is 499.99 with a 2yr contract. If you sign up for the unlimited data plan VZW will extend a 100 dollar Advanced Device Discount at the point of sale making it 399.99. Full retail price is 619.99 not 649.99. A 1yr contract does not qualify for the Advanced Device Discount, therefor you can not get it for 499.99 with a 1yr, I am not 100% sure of the 1yr pricing but I believe it is 549.99. Once again, THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE TREO FOR 399.99 IS TO BE ON A 2YR CONTRACT WITH A CALLING PLAN OF 34.99 OR HIGHER AND AN UNLIMITED DATA PLAN. NO OTHER DATA PLANS QUALIFY FOR THE ADVANCED DEVICE CREDIT. You also, by no means, have to get the unlimited data plan, you can simply get the treo for 499.99 and call it a day. Treonauts...Please check your pricing...or maybe I should say elaborate on it?!?!?

And with all american choice plans...There are no long distance or roaming charges...You can be in NY and call Cali...or be in Cali and call NY..The entire US is your home calling area.

Couls someone confirm that the VZ 700w supports Bluetooth DUN?

by Felipe | Jan 5, 2006 1:23:57 PM

doug, it doesnt.

by Dan Harms | Jan 5, 2006 3:07:40 PM

Felipe - do you know this for a fact, or just basing it on the Treo 650? It seems silly that a device supporting BroadbandAccess/EVDO wouldn't support DUN.

by Andrew | Jan 5, 2006 4:13:57 PM

Dan - I can now confirm that Bluetooth DUN is NOT supported by the Treo 700w (apparently at Verizon's specific request...).

It does indeed seem very silly and wasteful not to have DUN enabled particularly if you're paying for an unlimited data plan. Instead I imagine that Verizon (as well as other carriers) would prefer that people purchase a separate Wireless EVDO Data Card (which I actually recently had to do).

Cheers, A.

Hello Treonauts,
I am woefully behind the times and am now preparing to purchase a Treo Smartphone and am seeking your expert opinions on whether the 650 or the new 700 would be better for me.

I currently use a Verizon mobile phone, blackberry for email, and an old PalmIIIC for contacts and Calendar. I'd like to merge them all into one device. I work for a small company and for now we use AOL for email. This could change in the coming months.

I have Outlook on my PC, and have used it in the past, but never use it now since contacts are in Palm OS, and email is AOL.

I use the Blackberry 24/7 for email accessiblity.

I'm wondering if I should stick with the Palm OS on the 650 or splurge for the 700.

And will they both work with AOl? Does the email work as it does with on the Blackberry? If I go with the 700 will it sync with my Palm contacts.calendar or will I have to switch to Outlook on my PC?

These are probably very basic questions for you experienced users but I really appreciate any opinions you can give me!
thank you,

Does anyone have any info on whether or not the treo 700"P" will be out on verizon anytime soon? Thanks

by Michael | Jan 6, 2006 1:19:38 AM


My 2 cents would be that you are a perfect candidate for a 650. AOL mail sync'ing should be no problem at all since AOL supports pop3, etc.. Palm has also promised Blackberry support in the near future as well.

My 650 is the best voice phone I've ever used. It has a nice user interface and I love being able to create buttons that automatically dial numbers right off the touch screen. I love being able to turn off/on sound by silently moving a switch. Also, being able to turn off the phone while leaving the rest of the device turned on is another good feature.

You don't need a fast network for email. Browsing can be a bit slow -- but with the small screen, it's a hassle no matter what.

Data migration from a IIIC should be relatively painless also. You'll love not having to punch numbers from one device to the other.

BTW -- You can check out a review from Mossberg for the 700w vs 650 at http://ptech.wsj.com/ptech.html


by Bill Lile | Jan 6, 2006 4:12:51 AM

Was wondering if you knew if it had the different text input options as other windows mobile devices does? Are we able to write on the screen?

by Evan | Jan 6, 2006 5:05:40 AM

I bought one the 5th and it had to be delivered to my house they had none on the spot they checked 10 other stores and nonthing there they said wait 5 days before they got them in so i get mine today the 6th hopefully!

PalmOS model beats WinMob model, say reviewers
By Fernando Cassia: Friday 06 January 2006, 09:13
"REVIEWERS at the influential Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and the New York Times, didn't like the Windows Powered Treo 700w ...
"So that makes it two of the major US newspapers concluding that the Windows-Powered Treo is in fact no better than the PalmOS powered Treo 650, quite the opposite, the supposed inferior beats the "advanced" WinMob device. Which of course is no surprise to most PalmOS users. ...

by Blake | Jan 6, 2006 4:19:29 PM

Is there even going to be a Treo 700p???

by Andrew | Jan 6, 2006 4:24:49 PM

Blake - there will absolutely, categorically, 100% be a new Treo 700p running PalmOS (and possibly others) released within the first 6 months of 2006.

Cheers, A.

Can you review the Voice Command functionality?

by Max | Jan 10, 2006 5:14:07 PM

Should I feel dumb that I just joined the Treo revolution with a 650? I can't, really, because I love it!

by bav | Jan 11, 2006 2:58:32 AM

Hi guys,need some help here. I just bought the 700w and now am rethinking my decision. I am a physician and reularly use programs like epocrates and other palm based resources for medical info(isilo, 5MMM etc).I have been using a sony clie all my medical life and love it, its so user friendly... I think the "newness" and better camera made me buy the 700! In your opinion, is there a lot of difference between the 650 and 700? I was lucky to get a plan 59.99(900mins) and data plan for 24.99(20MB). I fear that if I cancel this phone and get a 650, they might ask me to get the unlimited data plan. Help!

by clu | Jan 13, 2006 12:36:05 PM

I cannot have a camera due to working in high security area. The 650 sans camera seems my only choice. Anyone know if the 700w/700p versions will come sans camera?

by NAS | Jan 14, 2006 5:41:28 PM

I have a 700 and upgraded from a KYO 7135. At one point Verizon was upgrading from 7135 to 700s b/c the 7135 was no longer being made. Anyone have any idea if Verizon is upgrading 700s that have problems to 700 ws? My 700 is having a problem with the speakerphone.

by NAS | Jan 14, 2006 5:43:57 PM

SORRY!! I meant I have a 650, not a 700. I want to know if Verizon is upgrading problematic 650s with the 700w

by Ryan | Jan 26, 2006 5:33:25 AM

I have been using the 650 since it first came out and I have to tell you this new 700 is so much better IMO. The browser alone is so much more advanced than the 650. The 650 I had was with Cingular and I could only get EDGE which in the best of conditions got 150Kbps, now with EvDO and an unlimited data plan/pdanet I should get a pretty decent speed, lets hope.

by law suit | Jan 30, 2006 2:50:59 PM

Anyone know anything about the class action law-suit against Palm for the Treo650?


by ChristianQ | Jan 31, 2006 1:33:26 PM
