Excerpt: I have had this product for several months now. I purchased it since I lost my old phone and it was the smae price as a normal phone with no where near the options as the Palm Centro. It has been great for the most part.
Excerpt: I purchased the Palm Centro in pink back in February upon switching from T-Mobile to Sprint (more on T-Mobile in another review). Overall, I am happy with this phone. For a smartphone it is pretty small and compact.
Excerpt: The Palm Centro cell phone for Sprint service is on average an acceptable device. However I feel like this is an attempt by Palm to compete with the Blackberry Pearl which is dominating the small form factor smart phone arena.
Excerpt: I’ve been using my Palm Centro for about four months now, and I couldn’t be happier with it. As a freelancer who’s often on the run, this little machine has been useful for me in many ways: having my phone, calendar, address book, and internet access all in …
Summary: Not even close to a modern smart phone, but PALM really did make great phones with very little internal error or need for rebooting, etc. Can hold some apps. Kind of retro, but it was very low price.
A good start-up cell phone for young children and teenagers.
4 April 2014
Summary: This is my third phone of this kind. I first had it a few years a go as my first smartphone. But now i see it as a mere start-up cell phone for young children who are texting all the damn time.It has very good call quality and great battery life. I was actually surprise it was still on the market and listed as NEW.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter to replace her problematic Palm Zire. It has all the functions she is accustomed to at a very reasonable price and she is very happy with the product. I also have a Palm Centro which I use as my “smart phone”. I do not do much talking or texting so I opted for T-Mobile’s Pay-As-You-Go plan, which averages between $15 - $20 per month, depending upon my usage.
Summary: I was not able to use this phone with my current carrier so I can not rate it on it's functions but I can say it was a cool phone and looked like it would be fun and easy to use. It looked very durable and I certainly would have kept it if I had been able to sue it with my carrier. I sent it back and the merchant I purchased it from was great in providing me with all I needed to do so and also a quick refund.
Summary: I bought this product knowing that it was used but didn't expect it to be unusable. The speaker isn't working and if I by mistake press speaker then I have no idea that the person is waiting on the line for me but I cant hear anything. secondly the ringer doesn't work so if I want to see if someone called I gotta check my missed calls. was very unimpressed and would be very careful next time I buy this item.
