Summary: I bought this as a replacement because my android phone junked out on me and I get an upgrade in two months. So no need to buy anything fancy. It's a good little phone, but the webios phones are no longer supported by Hewlett Packard. So, in short, there are no updates and never will be again. The app store is lousy and it makes my wallet hurt to think I have to pay for a data package on this phone while using it.
This phone isn't as cool as it is cracked up to be.

Excerpt: This phone has a few cool features, but there are definitely many more cons than pros. The battery life is terrible, the internet is super slow, making it almost impossible to do anything on the web unless connected to WiFi. It comes with only a few ways to personalize your phone, the rest must be downloaded seperatly. For example: you must download a patch to switch the text messaging alert volume or to forward an email. These patches take forever to download.
Great concept, but need to work on phone and battery.

Excerpt: My husband and I got these phones when we signed up with the first provider that carried them. At first I was in love. I was able to sync my three email accounts, which automatically updated my phonebook and calendar. The phone would automatically update with necessary patches. We had to wait a couple of months for the video function. Who makes a phone these days without video? Anyhow, the phone stays smudged. The apps crap out all the time.
Summary: Have had this phone for almost a year or a year now. Where do I start? Battery life is really bad, especially with wifi turned on. Don't even think of using anything but a Palm charger, I have killed two batteries as a result. Webos is a joke, hardly any apps available, thanks to HP. Speaker blew out since I had to have the volume at the loudest which is a common occurance for this phone.
Summary: I've had the phone for 1 year, 11 months and 4 days. Yep, I'm counting. I bought the phone about 6 months before HP bought the company and about 12 months before they dumped the company. Bad timing on my part. My contract is up soon. I could have traded up awhile back, but I'm a cheap bastu.. Anyway, after about a year I found the keyboard keys falling apart with several keys sticking or not even working.
