Verizon Treo 755p End Of July Release?

Thanks to some leaked images, rumours abound that the long-awaited (and somewhat overdue) Verizon Treo 755p smartphone to replace the ageing but still hugely popular Treo 700p may finally be ready for launch and that we are only within weeks of its official release…

Verizon Treo 755p

Like its sibling already running on the Sprint network, Verizon’s Treo 755p combines the sleek, internal antenna hardware design of devices such as the Treo 680 with the rubberized casing of the Treo 750 (see full Treo Comparison Chart). 

A unique Treo 755p distinction has been its a larger capacity standard battery of 1600mAh compared to the Treo 680/750’s 1200mAh (an Extended Battery is now also available).  Additionally, you can expect to see Verizon’s model offering the  following features along with many additional enhancements:

  • Built-in support for Microsoft Direct Push Email
  • Integrated Google Maps for Mobile
  • Dial-up networking via USB or Bluetooth
  • Support for EvDO speeds
  • 128MB memory (60MB user available) and support for Mini-SD memory cards up to 4GB;
  • 1.3-megapixel digital camera and video
  • Full PDF support using DataViz Documents To Go Version 8.0, which also offers support for native Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents;
  • Default data transfer mode, which allows users to be notified of incoming voice calls while using data services, rather than calls automatically going to voicemail.

I have no idea why it’s taken Verizon this long to release its successor to the Treo 700p – particularly considering how well it sold – but I’m naturally delighted to see that the Treo 755p is finally on its way.  Finally, even though some people may still argue whether this is a worthy upgrade most Treonauts who made the jump to the Sprint Treo 755p have reported being absolutely delighted with their decision.

My new company is only going with Verizon and I need to know ASAP if anyone knows when this 755p is coming out or I'll have to carry around a stupid Blackberry that's shaped like a shoe!

I am thinking of either getting the 680 or the 755 or a nokia E61 or E62. I like browsing the web alot and a good phone. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Mike

Has anyone heard any news on the 755p from Verizon? What happened??????

by JohnR | Oct 18, 2007 12:19:37 PM

I have been waiting for Verizon on the release of the 755P for some time. My other phone is about dead. If Verizon doesn't do something soon, I'm going with ATT just for the phone.

Still waiting for HSDPA/GSM version of Palm OS!

Any update on when Verizon will release the 755?

by Brian Miller | Nov 27, 2007 10:17:38 AM

Why would anyone be interested in a phone with obsolete software and a form factor that is 4 years old. Having been a long time Treo user and finally losing patience with the lack of new, thinner phones I've gone to a Blackberry 8830. It works flawlessly, has much better battery life, and is much smaller.

Does anyone know why its taking so long for Verizon to come out with the Treo 755? I have called and customer service is useless. I'm wondering if I should change to Sprint or Alltel. I have considered a Blackberry but I have Palm Compatible software on my Palm Treo that I really don't want to lose. Any ideas? Thanks !

Verizon has the 755! It's online I ordered it yesterday and should be in stores I was told on or about Jan 7th!

Is verizon coming out with a windows version of the 755? I used activesync with my exchange server and I dont want to spend days uploading new contacts.

Also, does it come with the windows push like Sprint, and if so what atvantage is that???

Just providing the latest Verizon 755p update.... I picked mine up in-store last night. Granted it's not much of a change from my 700p, but that one was a fru that I'd only had for a couple of months (replacing my original that had started glitching nonstop) and had already started glitching to the point of freezing whenever I had an incoming call. So, my choice was to let Verizon give me another fru'd 700p, buy a new 700p or get the 755p. Since the 755p is at least supposed to be a bit more stable, I decided to give it a try. Hopefully, it at least won't be worse than my 700p was.
I have run into one interesting glitch, however, my TomTom Navigator is apparently non-compatible - I don't know if I just need to update something or if it's a conflict with the Google Maps program that's preloaded, but trying to install/open Navigator causes a reset loop.

Happy Treo-ing!

Okay, 2nd Verizon 755p update and compatibility advisory:

The 755p is NOT compatible with TomTom Navigator!! I spent two days going back & forth between TomTom (TT) and Palm tech assist on this issue. Apparently Palm has discontinued their contract w/ TT and moved to Garmin, so they never provided TT with a 755 to test. Contrary to the info in the Treonauts' store, there is no patch for the 755 on the TT site (and yes, I've called the store and let them know so they can change their listing). The TT rep told me that they have been cautiously recommending 755 users to try the 680 patch posted on Palm's site, but so far only about 25 out of 1000 have had any success with it. Palm, of course, ultimately told me that I absolutely didn't want to try a patch designed for a different phone and really only had two choices: to stay with the 755p because it was "the newest, therefore the best, Treo" and purchase the Garmin Navigator version or "downgrade" back to a 700p if I really wanted to stay with TT. I promptly took my 755p back to Verizon and traded it for a new 700p! The very minor 'improvements' in the 755p were definitely not worth trading my TTNav for a Garmin copycat version.....

Happy Treo-ing!

I just purchased a Treo 755p and am having problems with finding the best bluetooth. I am using a Motoral H685 and everyone keeps telling me that they hear clicking and a lot of static. I have tried adjusting the volume and have also exchanged my headset for a new one (same model). When I turn off the headset everyone tells me they can hear me clearly (so its not the phone).

by Julieanna | Apr 8, 2008 12:28:36 PM

I am having many issues with the 755P, my internet never fully loads, so I can't even enter my password to get into any websites, or check my e-mail, it crashes after text messeges, I am having issues with Ringo, the smaller SD Card sometimes stops being recongnized by the phone!!! I have to take the card out and reinsert! and there is no reset button anymore!!!! The battery life is shorter. what else can go wrong with my phone?????
