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: I love this phone, this is my current phone i use everyday through Sprint and couldn't happier with the quality of the phone. It is perfect for someone who uses their phone alot and has a ton of email volume, and who love the palm pilots. The size is decent, not too big, it can still fit easily into a pocket or purse. The sync of emails is easy and quick. If you like to download mp3's and video's like me the sound and video quality is excellent.
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: 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.
Excerpt: I purchased the Palm Treo 700p phone several months ago to help keep my personal life more organized. I have been working on my MBA, and along with personal and work appointments, it could be difficult to keep everything organized. With the Palm 700p phone I had the ability to check my email on the go, surf the web, though admittedly a more "mobilized" version, and sync my iCal, Address Book, and even picture and other data from my Mac laptop.
Excerpt: I've had my Treo 700P for over a year and am very happy with it. I did by a larger after market battery (2400 mah as opposed to the 1800 Mah that it comes with) and have extremely good battery life for surfing the web as well as talk time. After a stint of using a Windows based mobile device, it was a relief to come back to the effeciency of the Palm operating system. Granted, it cannot multitask, but it is far less of a resource hog and more intuitive to use.
Decent phone, works lots of palm software - get the insurance

Excerpt: I can't live without my Palm Treo. The new time management software is really great. I am very happy with this overall, but have noticed two problems 1) if you are wearing earrings, it can see them as stylus and hang up the phone. 2) repairing/replacing them is pricey and they are somewhat delicate, so I highly recommend insurance.
Excerpt: I just upgraded fro the 650 - which was the best I've ever had. Phone, that is! I'm not used to it yet, but so far its pretty good. I'm sure it will just take a while to get used to the different placement of buttons (why DO they have to change those??) Looking for a smartphone?? try the treo - great value.
Nice Product if you are willing to put up with some problems

Excerpt: Overall this phone is great. I upgraded from the Treo 650 which I loved except for the phone had an issue where it would lock up either during a text message or while receiving a call. This happened to me several times and I had to take it back to Sprint and exchange it for a new phone. My hope was with the upgrade to the 700 that this problem would have been resolved. Much to my dismay the problem still exists.
