Excerpt: This thing has been nothing but trouble. Lousy phone, even in the Sprint store. Tempermental (tiny)buttons. Sprint replaced the first one. The second one was just as bad so I think its poor design not that I got a bad example.
Excerpt: I recently switched from carrying both a cell phone and a pda to combining them all in the Palm Treo 700W. I couldn't be more satisfied. I have Verizon for a carrier and their high speed internet service combined with the Windows based capabilities of this phone are perfect for me! Only one problem I would even remotley be concerned with is on average about one to two times per week I have to use the reset button under the battery cover because it will freeze up.
Excerpt: This phone was great for the first week, but since then I have been having many technical difficulties. The phone is very bulky when inside its case. I love watching videos and listening to music on the phone, but it is not very functional outside of entertainment.
Excerpt: I love this phone! It is easy to use, great display, great resolution for pictures! Easy to learn. I access the internet easily. It takes great pictures and it is easy to send them. I have service with Sprint and they have been great to answer any questions I had when it was new. I did buy an extended battery for better battery life. It allows me to check work email and automatically downloads my personal email for me.
Excerpt: I got this phone via work so I'm not paying for it...and I still requested to get a replacement! Either I can't hear who is on the other line or they can't hear me about 50% of the time, causing me/them to redial. My signal is weak, even when standing next to someone with a 'regular' cell phone. The battery life isn't very good and after a day of 'heavy' use (1-2 hours at the max) it may run out of juice before I get home (5-6 pjm).
Excerpt: I have always been a Palm owner, and when I was able to have my PDA and cell phone in one I rushed out and bought a Treo 650 OS. I did have just a few problems with the 650, but was much happier with the 650 than the 700W. Please consider the differences between the two operating systems, especially if you are use to the OS operating system verse the windows system.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for almost 2 years and have had nothing but problems with it. I have taken it in several times to be worked on and they have no idea how to fix it. It freezes continuously. You lose messages and information on a regular basis. If you are looking to get a smart phone, I dont suggest this would be the one.

Excerpt: It is nice when I'm out of the office it is great to keep up with emails and appointments. However with the keyboard exposed, I find my cheek hit a button and I am three way calling someone. You will also need to keyguard your phone otherwise you make phone calls that you didn't intend to call. It occassionally freezes and you have to take the battery out to reset. All in all, I am satisfied with the phone. With its key board it easy to text and send emails.
Excerpt: i thought this phone would be great... and i'm sure it is, if you don't mind not only carrying with you at all times your address book, your camera, your phone.. and your keyboard. that's how i feel about this thing. like i'm carrying them all around all the time. it does't fit in my pocket, looks ridiculous in a holster on my hip, and isn't even all that user friendly- the keys are too small to text quickly, and i just plain don't like it!
