Excerpt: Good phone overall. I have used it for almost 2 years. Not a heavy user in terms of software and so. Synchronization and backup with my Laptop was a pain until I learned how to do it (instructions very now works flawlessly, however I keep receiving messages about incompatible software, but as it...
Excerpt: Truth be told, I bought this phone for the sake of saying that I've had it. It's not too bad. It's much better than the 650 was, CDMA or GSM! Like: Reception: I gets it everywhere! Comes with instant messaging (after download from palm.com/us.) Not bad camera/video.
Excerpt: The Palm is good for what it does, which is basically for business people, not teenagers. I got mine about a month ago and I am not pleased with it. The phone screen annoys me with all the little tabs, and the way they address book set up annoys me as well.
Excerpt: The Treo 680 is a great phone that offers many things that I need but not all the things that I want in a phone. Somethings that I think the phone is missing is a better mp3 player(very annoying to operate), UMTS, no built in instant messenger, and awful battery life.
Excerpt: I've had the phone 3 weeks now, everything has been great. Note on battery: Despite what you've read, you do not need to condition the battery. After a couple of days, battery life will be longer. After 14 hours of use with BB Conect on (works great), 35% life left. You have to charge it every day.
Excerpt: The phone is great, maybe not an upgrade to the 650 but good features. However if you drop it or bang it hard, the screen WILL CRACK. This is a non warranty fix and you will be out another $199 to get it repaired. I have also heard that the SIM cards get damaged easily on drops too so be careful.
Excerpt: Here's my frame of reference for my review: I've been a long time Palm PDA user, and I've been using a Lifedrive together with a Razr V3 on Cingular. I use these devices together as a PDA and a communicator for voice/e-mail/messages/data/podcast. So I'm asking a lot from my device(s) PRO's 1.
Summary: This product was sold as an ex-exhibition item, used but as new. It was, in fact, immaculate and still in the original box and wrapping. A bargain at the price. The software CD supplied did not run, but the Palm website had all the necessary software as free downloads.
