  • 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.

This phone is not the best phone to have

ColinsMom04, Viewpoints

  • 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: 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!

If you are on Sprint and use Gmail, this phone is worthless

  • 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.

Pick something else

  • Excerpt: I received this phone as an insurance replacement for the UT starcomm ppc6700 I lost. Basically, for the first month or two I had it seemed like every day I found something else it couldn't do that it should have been able to do and that my ppc6700 did without issues. the small square screen means most games or other programs are far less likely to work on it, I'm sure palm has some available but I'm not willing to pay them for them when I should be able to use the large...

  • Excerpt: I have used the Treo 600, 650, and now the 700. I must say this one is probably the worst of the 3.
  • Pros: Doesn't drop as many calls as my 600 or 650, one-handed operation fairly easy
  • Cons: Lag time, small keypad, small screen, crappy ringtones

This phone was not what I expected.

  • Summary: I would try something else... Bluetooth on this phone is NOT a good experience! NO WIFI, GPS not enabled... for $500 you can do much better. Buyer beware!
  • Pros: Attractive, easy to use keyboard, easy to use with one hand...
  • Cons: Poor Bluetooth reception... GPS is not enabled... NOT compatable with TOMTOM ONE XL,
