Summary: I have owned many phones and had stayed with Palm until the 750 model came out. I bought a few of these older models - I had one for 7 years!!! Travel a lot internationally dropped it, threw it a few times! It worked great!
Summary: This WAS a great phone...I loved it until this last summer when it suddenly stopped receiving text messages from people with cells of other carriers. After much time with Verizonwireless support, I was finally told that the problem was that texts from VZW customers to phones of other carriers are routed through Syniverse, a 3rd-party company which re-encodes the message.
Summary: I am still learning how to use the different features of this oldie but I love it! I love the ease of connecting to the internet...the screen size is large enough to see fairly well...and I love the fact I can pull up the dial pad and use it because it is bigger than the number pad. The keyboard makes texting a breeze. I like the fact I do not have to pay extra for a 3 or 4 G data package, the one I connect with works for me...
Summary: I had my eye on the treo since 2003 when I was able to use a pda wirelessly and wanted something that had the same functions and was able to send and receive calls. Since then I've used a Nokia and Sanyo candy bar phones, Motorola q (which included a beaming function that worked seamlessly with the Palm Pilot) and Motorola q9c smartphones. and I also use the blackberry curve 8530 which was the worst smartphone experience ever with endless frustration.
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted a phone that could sync with my calander and contacts without having to be on a data plan. All other smart phones with Verizon required a plan. If you get this phone, I would also recomment that you buy Spb Mobile shell, which is a great interface.
Summary: I bought this phone last month; as far as I could tell it LOOKED as good as new (it was labeled 'refurbished'); but before I could activate it, I saw two problems: it didn't seem to be able to hold a charge overnight, and where I'm located Verizon just doesn't seem able to maintain a connection.
