Works for me to do emails on public wifi without being connected to a plan.
16 January 2013
Summary: Got this for 30$ used. I dont have this connected to a data plan or phone plan. I only use this for email and basic web browsing. For the purpose of connecting to public WIFI and sending emails or looking up things on Wikipedia, it is perfect. Otherwise the outdated operating system is better at blocking "unauthorized" apps than anything else. I cant find good apps for the 6.1 windows mobile system.
Summary: I had purchased this item to replace another device I had on my account. When I received the device it was dead on arrival. I plugged the device in and it still does not charge or turn on. One of the water marker stickers you can see to tell if the device has come into contact with water is solid red. I believe the device has water damage and am looking to return it for a refund, or file a claim if necessary.
Summary: The features are great on this phone but the screen is a little small and very sensetive. Because the phone uses alot of power the battery life is not very good but overall this is a good phone.
Summary: Its also a great phone for a teenagers first smart phone. Its solid, it will take a beating, its great for texting, and with its touch screen and windows 6.1 operating system, its still "cool" enough for them not to be embarrassed to use it.
Summary: We used this phone with our office staff from the time it first came out about two years ago until a month ago and were very impressed with it. Obviously technology changes and builds upon strengths and weaknesses of predecessors, so we felt we needed to finally upgraded. The Palm Treo 800w is a solid phone. While it probably wouldn't be able to be thrown across the room and come out alright, it took several small falls and continued to work fine.
Summary: This phone is very practical, the battery life is great it last about 48 hours without being charged. The features are very up to date, I had a 4g android phone prior to this one, and the battery lasted no more than 5 hours a day. This phone is small and very reliable, the camera resolution is great and I wouldnt change it for the world. I strongly recommend it.
Summary: I love this phone. I know it's a bit out of date but I love the features the phone offers. This is actually a replacement for the same model phone I previously owed and dropped into my cup of coffee. Fastlane Wireless, the ebay store I purchased the phone from, is awesome. I think they rate their items at a lower quality than they actually turn out to be. That made for a great suprise when my phone rated as fair had almost no signs of use on it at all!
