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 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.
Summary: Out of all the cell phones I've ever owned, this one has got to be my favorite! This phone has really stood the test of time. It's Windows based platform is easy to navigate....If you can operate your Windows based PC at home, you'll have little issue with this phone. The only drawback to this particular device is the battery life.
Summary: I like it because have a very user-friendly system, and the internet program that comes with it. I don't like the short battery life, and for a longer life you need to make the phone more bulky with a bigger battery. I don't like when you open the phone to use the keyboard that always a key get push by accident.
Summary: I will jump right in to it. The Centro has a small QWERTY keyboard(keypad) which is farely easy to type on for me. It has a good touchscreen, decent size and okay resolution. I however do not like the fact of how difficelt it is to get your email up and running, my device is for verizon and the wireless sync will simply not let me sync my email and i dont know if it is always like that or if i need to contact verizon to take care of the problem.
Summary: the Palm Treo 650 Is Everything you need in 1 phone .Its a appointment reminder . A Camera & Video recorder . You can download and sync apps games .create your own ring tones . It also has a sd card slot to add more room or transfere anything from your hom pc to your treo .You also have a keyboard to text as well as a touch screen with a styles .
Summary: I recently purchased the Palm Treo 700w....it is an awesome phone, I would recommend for anyone who wants a reliable, stylish phone that works.....everything works fine, and like I said, it's a stylish smart phone.....
Summary: I'm hooked on Palm PDAs. So I saw the Centro as a chance to get rid of the PDA and do both on the cell phone. The screen is very small, and the power port is a weak link. When I got my old Centro from Verizon, it wasn't necessary to have a data plan for texting. After about two years of pocket wear and knocking around, the charging port became fragile, meaning that I had to sit and hold the plug "just right" so it would charge for around 1.5 hr/day.
Summary: The palm OS is unique. Its not as up to speed as far as APPS and such as the iphone or the droid. But the price is right. the system is fairly simple to learn. If you are looking for a smart phone for internet, and you are willing to pay the price, go for a droid or iphone or even a palm pixie.
A Verizon Smart Phone that does NOT require data plan
30 January 2010
Summary: If you want a QWERTY keypad, plus a phone that will text and keep your contacts in one place, the Palm Centro is it. Plus with easily available free games on the web and free ringtones (program called minitones takes any MP3 and coverts it to a ring tone), your son or daughter will have a custom phone for not alot of Cash. Used ones in decent condition can be found for about $70 on eBay.
