Summary: I mainly got it because my previous phone, which i loved, suddenly failed do the simplest thing which was maintain a normal phone call. service was fine the thing was just broken so i got the palm pixi. its an ok switch since it did what i wanted it to but its just so hard to hear anybody on it no matter who it is or where i am usually have to turn on the speaker and that just barely made the difference.
Summary: This phone is really tricky, for all Prepaid customers, you don't want to get this phone. You have to have a data plan, which is internet to even get into it. If you really really want this phone, get a 5 dollar data plan so you can go through all the steps.. Other than that, the pictures are good, it has flash, and YES it has Wifi, that was my main worry about it. It's a great phone, the app store, SUCKS!!! You don't get nothing at all but lame games.
Summary: Well i had this phone for about 6 months the apps and everything are sorta ok the keys are small but that doesnt matter for me and i wish they had mention that it needed a data plan 95 dollars a month is pulling lots out of my pocket so i decided to order the samsung glyde i hope that does better
Great for a backup, unusable if you came from Android / iOS

Summary: Given that it was discontinued (and Palm basically only exists for tax purposes), I wasn't expecting much and therefore I am pleasantly surprised with the Palm Pixi Plus. I purchased this as a backup to my Droid X, which needed to be shipped in to my warranty provider to fix some issues.
Summary: This phone does not have the newest version of WebOS. It has 1.45, vs 3.0 for the Touchpad. The keypad is very small and hard to type on. Seems like the perfect phone for younger teenagers. The phone itself has nice features for the great bargain of 70 dollars, and I appreciate that. WebOS does lack some features and customization options but it is pretty and runs well. I was able to add a lot of features and make tweaks to the operating system using "Preware".
Summary: BEWARE OF THIS PHONE!!! When you're on the market for an unlocked phone, you expect to find one where you can just pop in the sim card and you're ready to go. Text and voice should work and sometimes even data. This phone is NOT FOR THIS, if you have no previous experience with the Pixi, be careful. Once you buy it, you have to create a Palm Profile and activate it.
Summary: I bought this unlocked phone to see me through the rest of my current cell phone contract after my basic non-smart phone gave up on life. The main things that attracted me to this phone was qwerty keyboard, the price tag and the wifi capabilities. I don't currently have a data plan and didn't want to get one, but live in a city where there's free wifi readily available just about everywhere.
