Excerpt: I was very excited when I first purchased my Palm Pixi Plus this past Spring. I had never had a smartphone before, and my expectations were high. Unfortunately, the negative things I have to say about the Pixi outweigh the positive things. After only a few days of having it, it began to shut itself off randomly. I could be in the middle of a phone call and it turns off. Somedays it’s not so bad, other days it will do it almost hourly.
Excerpt: When I first got this phone I was thrilled. There's plenty of free apps in the Palm app super market, it has decent sound quality from the speakers and the screen quality is great. But a few months went by and I started having problems. The back case on the phone is falling apart, the rubber is separating from the plastic and makes it hard to plug in the charger.
Summary: I love Palm devices. I can't think of a model or device they've manufactured that I haven't liked for one reason or another. However, either due to ATT's new restrictive controls or due to this phone's programming (or lack thereof), I was unable to set the "arn" settings and get this phone to operate on ATT. Recommend choosing another unlocked GSM phone type if you're with ATT.
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

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.
