Summary: This phone is to simple compared to other smartphones in the market. The person asked too much money for the phone. Maybe a few years ago it was a goog aquisition but nowdays it was a really wast of my money.
Very slow boot-up time and complex activating was a deal breaker
30 October 2011
Summary: I don't keep my phone on all the time. After months of research the only thing I didn't check was boot- up time, as very few places carry live phones to try and reviews rarely mention it. The Pixi took over over 95 seconds to turn on or off, too long in an emergency for me. In contrast, an Iphone 4S I tried took 23 seconds. HP/Palm support said that's typical for Palm.
Summary: Who knows? I never got past the LOGIN SCREEN. I hate to be mean to this cute little phone. I'm sure it's great. AS LONG AS YOU'RE ON A CONTRACT!!! Prepaid users beware of this one. Not to mention the fact that it takes a full 3 minutes or more just to get the phone loaded. I ended up buying another phone.. a phone that MANY forums told me I couldn't use with AT&T because it was Verizon. Actually ONLY the seller told me I could.. and they were right. Palm sucks.
Summary: I was not happy with this phone. I love to text and the buttons on this phone are so small that it makes it difficult. You have to read the manual because some of the apps are pretty hard to figure out. My local phone store even had a hard time getting my phone updated to my plan. And the Phone was brand new. That should tell you something in the way of being hard to use.
Summary: Cheapest speaker available. Slow. Poor service from Palm.It will start a second call to the person you are talking to and you will end up losing both calls. The speaker must be the cheapest crap they can find. It cannot be heard in a moving vehicle and you must hold to to your ear with the speaker phone on in a moving vehicle. I have never been able to use the web because it is simply too slow.
Summary: A stopgap for me before moving onto something I can get my teeth into - currently thinking about the HTC HD7. The Palm Pixi Plus is small but manageable, fits into any pocket, bag etc. Some people may be put off by the keyboard, but honestly, its very clicky and easy to use The operating system is good, a bit different from the norm. Its not using a great processor and therefore performance can be sluggish but have seen worse.
Pros: The operating system is pleasant to use and works well. Keyboard although small, is easy to use.
Cons: Sluggish, can be very irritating sometimes to do something very simple
