Great old school smart phone- can't live without it
15 September 2012
Summary: Great old smart phone. I had to replace the same model since it went for a swim. For as old as this platform is it does a lot! I have used a Palm platform device for over 15 years and have lots of data backed up on my computer that I could not bear to lose. That is why I chose not to upgrade to an Android or iPhone. My only letdown is the "new" phone did not come with an SD memory card. It had the factory "non-functional" dummy card in the slot.
Excerpt: The TREo700p is a cool cell phone. It does what it advertises and the more tech saavy you are the more yiu could get from ths little gadget. It is much lighter than the other TREo's and a bit smaller. It seems to have a problem with the connector on the wall charger and car charger. this presents a major problem. I have 3 chargers in 3 months and the wall charger has left me without my phone a couple of days. Beware of this problem.
Excerpt: I've had my Palm Treo 700P for about 6 months now and I love it. The texting on the phone is so easy and the UI works perfectly. I would suggest getting a case and screen protector for the phone as it does tend to scratch easily, the case not the screen. This phone is also great for getting email and surfing the web.
Excerpt: The phone is easy to use. Typical male here, I do not read instuction manuals. Figured it out through trial and error. The touchscreen is very responsive, but add a case onto it and it is a little more difficult to work the items displayed in the border regions of the screen. Overall - good phone with every item you could need on it.
Excerpt: This phone is very user friendly, even for people with bigger fingers, the touch screen is awesome, its sleek, the sound is great, it can do it all. the available colors stand out, the battery stays charged, and it is even kidproof!
Excerpt: I love this phone! Can't say enough about it. I am able to keep all my contacts, calendar, PDA, and telephone all in one place. My contacts are clear and I'm able to keep photos of all my contacts in the phone. When they call me I can look at their picture and know who it is calling immediately. Also, it is a camera and videocamera. I especially love how text messages are so much easier to type out on the buildin keyboard.
Excerpt: Being a busy Real Estate Agent, I found that the Palm Treo 700p was too complicated. If I was to show a house and needed to call my husband or 911 for help, quickly, with this phone, would not be possible.The touch screen did not work efficiantly. Even with the little pen gadget they give you to touch the screen with, did was not efficiant. I had a difficult time getting around on the screen quickly.
Excerpt: Ok, I admit it. I never like having a cell phone. I felt like I was on a leash. But then I let loose and purchased the 700p since I was getting a grea deal. Little did I know I would be able to throw nearly everything I lugged around on a daily basis into the trash bin! This puppy is a date book, laptop, phonebook, secretary, mp3 player, alarm clock, camera, and camcorder!! It is even bluetooth enable In my business I need all of these things.
Excerpt: The Palm Treo 700p is a great cellphone if you are in the need of a buisness phone. This phone as all the write gadgets at the palm of your hand. With the neat little stick you can draw on pictures and everything. This device comes with windows media player. Overall i liked this phone because it has a lot of features that are good for buisness or perfect for the average bored teenager.
