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'!
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
