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: 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.
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.
Great PDA product but a little limited as a phone.

Excerpt: It beats the other Palm organizers hands-down! I love the touch screen and Office Mobile. The resolution is very clear, not grainy or blurry. Not a large variety of add-on programs and it's a little hard to navigate the settings. Biggest drawback is it's not easily personalized with very few options. It's a little over-priced so I wouldn't recommend it as a phone but definitely as a PDA.
Excerpt: Although, I have no choice in what kind of phone I get or the service plan since work pays for it, I have enjoyed our service, and really like this phone. We have to track data at outreach sites, and the phone has the software to do it. My co workers and I have to stay in steady contact with each other, usually through text or voicemails, and the qwerty keyboard is great for that. The touch screen works well, and it is durable as I have dropped it quite a few times.
Palm 700wx is pricey but priceless once you get it

Excerpt: Overall this is a great phone! Very easy to use and has many useful features. Although sometimes it does require a reset...but well worth it when you figure all you get. Seamless integration with an exchange server (email, contacts, calendar) makes it indespensible for work. But this does make it difficult to hide from the office when they are trying to find you!
Accept the flaws...this offers convenience and portability
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I traded in my cell phone for this one as soon as I was able. I need something that keeps me connected in every possible way. I've had my Treo for over a year now and while it's not the bright, shiny object it once was, it's still going strong and I can't believe how long it's held my interest. I'll admit that having to reset/reboot the device regularly is annoying, but it's worth the annoyance just to have the convenience that it offers.
Excerpt: I've had a 700wx for 3 months now and I am absolutely hooked. Having used other OS types in the past, I am a huge fan of the Palm tweaks to the Windows OS. I updated to WM 6.1 and haven't looked back, I applied a SDHC.cab file to expand storage and have not had a single problem. I also use Spb Time and Spb Pocket Plus which provide an amazing amount of personalization and features.
Pros: Touch Screen, QWERTY Keyboard, TONS of Software/Accessories, Dependable Quality, Long Battery Life
Cons: No WiFi (SD WiFi available), Thicker than most, Antenna Stub
Summary: I bought this phone last week, selected 2 day shipping, and got it that fast. The phone was in perfect condition coming out of the box meaning it looks brand new.Its a phone from 2006 so its a bit slower then some of the new phones out there, but I've also upgraded the operating system to winmo 6.1 which the phone probably only has just enough ram for.
