Won't sync with Vista!

  • Summary: Like: Dependable, with good battery life. I run nursing programs on my phone for use at work & they work great with very few 'glitches' Dislike: Will NOT sync with Vista! You have the option of trying to sync using bluetooth, which is a nightmare when it says your virtual 'port already in use'!

This phone quits dialing after two rings

nomad-yoruk, Ebay
27 February 2010
  • Summary: I have had the Treo 680 almost two years. Initially, it was OK. It started acting a year ago or so. The most annoying things it does is it quits dialing after two rings and the screen goes dark. I have to hit the power button and re-dial. I chatted with Palm Support and they suggested a hard reset. I did, but nothing has changed. Otherwise, it is a nice phone.

Palm is showing its age

jdaviso1, Phone Scoop

  • Excerpt: Cons: The battery life on this phone is absolutely awful. My 680 would not last 24 hours without requiring a charge. The Palm OS is very buggy and would crash at least once a week. I live in an area where I do not get coverage. If my Treo went without data coverage for an extended period of time (e.g. over a weekend), once in a coverage area I would have to reset the device to get a GPRS connection again. Pros: Nothing beats a touch screen. Call sound quality was good.

Not worth the $

  • Excerpt: I bought this phone Dec 2006 and since then have had 5 replacements due to: dropping calls, shutting it's self off, freezing up, microphone malfunctions, just plain not working. The last time I called they decided to send me a Blackberry Curve because there have been so many problems with the Treo 680. On the positive side, when the phone works it's a nice phone. Easy to sync, nice keyboard, and program layout.

Rushed to Market?

kbdabraham, Phone Scoop
13 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Well, I have 680. It is a very nice phone. Elegant design. Best keyboard among all PDA's I've tried. nice speaker phone and sound quality. However, it resets itself when I answer calls. It does it a few times a week. Apparently, it is a known defect and a major one too. The phone application is very slow. when you answer a call, there is a delay where I am not sure if I need to press the answer button again or what? Treo doesn't seem to care.

Great if you don't need a phone!

hawkintx, Phone Scoop
18 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Recently switched to Cingular from Sprint in an area where Cingular is "supposed" to be the best service in town. Call quality is horrible and I'm not sure if it's the provider or the device. I've spoken with several people using Cingular with a regular phone (not a PDA) and they say the service is great, so it leads me to believe it's the device.

It doesn't match expectations

The Collector, Amazon
31 August 2008
  • Summary: I'm new to PDAs. The 680 looks like a great piece of equipment but I didn't find at all user-friendly. I found it wasn't remotely intuitive and the user guide - printed in light grey ink on glossy paper - is almost unreadable and not well laid out e.g. how to switch the thing on is on page 17. I've got used to the small keys but I still haven't got the hang of the two-tone alpha-numeric keyboard.
