Summary: First off, I bought this phone to use specifically with the Page Plus service. At $29.99 a month for 1200 minutes, 3000 Texts, and 250 MB of Data, that is a bargain! But back to the phone. It's small yet it packs a big punch! 8GB of memory, text messaging, camera (only 2mp but still good for an occasional snapshot or to record a short video), a great operating system, built in apps such as youtube and gps, wifi capable, mp3 player, and more.
Summary: This is a replacemnet for my previous Pixi which was a loyal trouble free phone for over 2 years/ webOS is simply the best OS out there. This phoe is fantastic in every way. No other OS comes even close to webOS.
Summary: I bought the Palm Pixi to use on Page Plus. I wanted a phone that had GPS and could serve as an emergency hotspot. It does both. The Palm lives in the smaller alternate WebOS universe - neither Android nor Apple. There I have had no problem finding those apps that I need. "Hacking" in WebOS requires no flashing and what-not. It is an open universe. I like using it for calls and texts, I like the little keyboard. It is rather small and that is a plus.
Summary: my teenage son has this phone. he loves it. it's sturdy enough to survive in his pocket all day while he's in school (he's not really supposed to have a phone!). he bangs it around and drops it and it keeps working. it's comfortable to text from, the call quality and battery life are great. a nice reasonably priced phone with lots of features.
Summary: Bought the phone because I had a Verizon account. I like that the phone is a touch screen & very easy to figure out & use, even w/o instructions. The screens vivid color is also nice, One thing I don't care for so much is that the screen is farely small. In my opinion , the Palm Pixie is one of the best phones I've ever had.
Summary: Recently I lost my iPhone. I went to the Verizon store and was told it would cost me well over $500 for a replacement iPhone since I had not bought insurance nor was I eligible for an upgrade yet (just another 3 1/2 months to go). Even the other "cheaper" brand models of smart phones cost several hundred without the discount of being a new subscriber or being eligible for a phone upgrade by having fulfilled 20 months of my obligated 2 year contract. What to do?
Summary: My experience with this Palm Pixi has been rather positive after a year now. Viewing its features and its failures through the lense of its very low price, I give it five stars. If it cost 10 times as much as many smart phones do, my affection would be more limited. It is not without problems, but they are manageable. I feel I got more than I paid for. I like how small it is, and it's easy to hold; I've never dropped it. It looks good. Feels well made too.
Summary: WARNING: Since the phone's operating system, WebOS, is NO LONGER SUPPORTED and NO LONGER UPGRADEABLE, your average smartphone customer is going to be very disappointed by this phone. The App Catalog is in shambles, the maps software doesn't work, there are some VERY annoying bugs that will never be addressed by the manufacturer (who wants a phone that refuses to text one random contact?).
