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: 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: 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!
Excerpt: I have owned the Palm Trio 700w cell phone for almost a year. I really like my phone alot! The Palm Trio 700w has some great accessories like a wi-fi card you can use without subscribing to a media package. The down side is you cant get calls or texts when using the internet. But with the free wi-fi you can download any application you could possibly want. Its no where near as easy as the I-phone but its a heck of a lot cheaper. i bought one new off e-bay for $55.00.
Excerpt: While some may consider the Treo bulky, it is definitely samller than a cell phone + a PDA. And it replaces both of them! I love the fact that I only need to have contact information in one place, and the fact that I can hot-sync all the data to my computer. I therefore have a backup and another place to enter data. Overall, I can't imagine being without this phone/PDA/internet access/email access/camera!
Excerpt: I traded out my cell for the TREO once I was able to do so. I have had a bit of an adjustment period just transitioning from cell to smart phone. As I adjust, I find the things I miss most are things which I can do with the TREO, I just have not taken the time to learn how to do them (voice command and quick dial). I really like the interactive nature of the phone.
If you are on Sprint and use Gmail, this phone is worthless
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This phone is worthless to a Gmail user who uses Sprint for cell service. Gmail does not work properly with the phone so Gmail has to be forwarded to PCS Mail and then to the phone, which is fine except that PCS Mail has such low storage that it has to be emptied often. Even trashed emails count against storage. But because this phone won't connect with Sprint.com, you can't empty the PCS Mail from it, and you must use a computer.
