Excerpt: Pros - Very cool display and keyboard. Keyboard is good for one handed operation. Speed dial very convenient. Very likeable phone (if quality was there). Cons - Quality is not good in this phone. The paint started wearing off before I had the phone a week, just from being in my pocket. The battery life was dismal. With any type of normal use, it would need to be recharged. I thought it was unusual, so I bought a new battery. It was only slightly better.
The Treo 300 is good, but the Treo 600 & 650 are WAY BETTER!

Excerpt: I have used the Treo's 300, 600 and now the 650. Not to mention a T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and Treo's are the absolute gods of cell phones!!! The Palm source OS software is very stable, much more then Microsoft's Pocket PC. The battery life on the Treo 600 & 650 is insane!
Treo, great concept but substandard hardware and customer support

Excerpt: I have had my Treo for 10 months and while I think the concept and execution of the concept is incredible, the quality of the product and the support network is the worst I have ever seen. I have had 3 replacements for my original Treo. Each time the unit malfunctioned and became unusable. This last one lasted 3 months without a major malfunction (a record). I have had to become very familiar with the reset function on each of my units as all continue to crash.
Excerpt: Once when I was a kid i found a pile of dirt and fi would play in it it is not like todays kids where they use there wireless phones everywhere and anywhere .I like this phone it is much like that pile of dirt small to the point .
Excerpt: This phone is the bomb-diggity. The longer you have it the better it gets. Start with the bad... as afore-to mentioned battery life is an issue. This baby does a lot, so the trade-off works for me. No bluetooth - I'm a bluetooth fan so I got the adapter. If you simply want a phone, this device is not for you. If you don't enjoy configuring a device to do exactly what you want, this device is not for you.
Excerpt: Very nice gadget, a few enhancements would make it perfect. However, unless you live and do all of your traveling in areas covered by the Sprint network, you are basically out of luck. This phone isn't capable of working with other networks, so here in Massachusetts there are too many areas with no coverage and so you have no phone. It's a shame. Pros: Nice color display, the keyboard is a huge plus, the unit performs nicely, not too big.
Excerpt: For me this is the best integrated phone/PDA available......FOR NOW.... Feb/March 2003 .....and I have come to rely on its features. The unit makes me grateful for what it does .....but still wanting a lot more ...... and I expect there will be a better unit available in the next few months Still, I love the "integrated" concept and don't think I could go back to carrying two devices Bottom line is ....the device has made me more productive.....
Excerpt: Used the Samsung IPH300 for 6 months. Switched to the Treo300 because Samsung screen got scratched twice so graffiti wouldn't work. Treo keyboard is GREAT..I can really use it for email and Instant messenger. Other PROS are fast 3G internet access. It really works! I use the speakerfon ALL the time...works great. Speed dial buttons plentiful and easily accessible. The search system in the OS sync'd contacts is the best I've ever seen!
Excerpt: This phone is the best purchase I have ever made. It is easy to use and the Palm functionality is so well integrated that you feel like it's part of the phone, not that the phone is an afterthought. The screen is one of the best lit I've ever seen, and the sound quality is exactly what it should be during a call. The silent/ring switch is the simplest and yet most brilliant innovation I've seen on ANY phone. Then there's the QWERTY.
