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: The Centro is a fantastic phone. It has a large qwerty keyboard that is easy to use, as well as touch scrfeen. It has the capability of internet and PDA functions. It keeps my calendar, wakes me every morning, stores my address book as well as my shopping list. The camera takes great pictures and video. This phone can do it all - palm has many downloadable extras, and it backs up to your computer for added safety of your information.
I'll give up my Palm Pilot when they pry it from my cold, dead hand.

Summary: Why do I carry this as a second phone, but without it's own SIM Card? Because it's a Palm Pilot! I've got apps I've used for years on Palm Pilots before they became cell phones too, and the apps on my Android phone haven't copied the usefulness, or the features of what I had on the Palm. And I won't give them up. Some things on my phone Calendar I don't want on my Google Calendar, but I DO need to back them up on my computer.
Palm centro, the way to keep the computer central to your palm

Excerpt: The AT&T Palm Centro is a great phone! I use it daily as a day planner, to do list reminder, internet provider, and a way to keep in touch through texting or phone calls. I love the touch screen the most, and find myself trying to get my computer to be a touch screen after using my phone! It takes pretty good quality pictures, is easy to understand if you are a little bit tech savy.
Excerpt: I have had my Palm Centro for two years now and I still love it. It is so simple to use once you get the hang of it. There is no seperate address to send pictures to or anything complicated like I have heard when you purchase a Blackberry. It takes wonderful high quality pictures. I use the video recorder to record my daughters high school basketball games. I can check my email from anywhere, connect to any of the instant messagers with just a click of a button.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE my Palm Centro. I have had one since 2007. The same one and it is gently telling me it wants to retire but I did not want to give it up. So I got a new one on Ebay. I hate learning new phones. I do not need all the new technology. What I love most about my Palm is the easy access to the calendar, emails, main menu, and phone. I love the touch screen. I love the size.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend, she had one just like it for 6 years and loved it, after 6 years of use the phone still worked but looked kinda ruff. She wanted the exact same phone to replace it, and this is it! She is very happy with it!
Excerpt: I replaced my Palm 650 after sprint was unable to fix it. The phone is more compact and has a smaller screen than the 650, however, it surpasses it in all other features. It has more memory, an improved browser, faster connection speeds and ability to add features like TV and GPS. The smaller screen took some getting used to but it was worth it to have a smaller phone with all of these great features.
Excerpt: We bought a Palm Centro a few months ago and love it. We did have an issue last month and had to have it replaced. It kept Syncing and wouldn't switch off the screen so we had to take it into a sprint store and replace it. Other then that slight snafoo, we love the phone. We love when we are traveling, we can just pull up google maps or seach the address on the web and go right to our destination. We like to text to, and the phone is very text friendly.
Excerpt: I love my Pink Palm. It has everything you could ever need in a phone and more. I havent had any problems with it at all. It doesn't drop calls or shut off on its own ever. The calendar is great and you can use it with your computer. I use it for work and everything else. The internet works great on it also. You can view almost any webpages you would on a computer.
