Summary: The phone had a lot of potential. I really loved my treo 680 and was hoping this would be a new and inproved verison of the phone i loved...but its only a shadow of that phone. It reset a lot when I 1st got it, and that can be solved with a memory card, but it lost a lot of the features that the 680 had that make it my fav smartphone. Still really like palm..
Excerpt: I bought the Palm Treo Pro offline b/c I hate extending a 2 yr contract. So far my only complaint is the speaker on the phone. The same speaker is used for "speaker phone" and regular talking. This means when I talk on the phone the speaker is actually on the other side of the key pad. My problem with this is that if you sit close enough to me you can now here both sides of the conversation easily.
Excerpt: I like the lightweight design of the device and think it looks good; however, the sound quality is poor. I am always trying to turn up the volume, and generally have to listen on speaker phone up to my ear to understand what people are saying. I am not a heavy texter, but I do text occasionally, and I have not found a way for texts that are received to display the timestamp of when the text came in. This is a big inconvenience.
The Palm Treo Pro gets the job done...but not conveniently.

Excerpt: The Palm Treo Pro Smartphone - Cell Phone has excellent service, when on a Verizon network; hardly ever drops a call. The internet is a bit slow, but eventually gives you what you are looking for. Emailing and texting leaves something to be desired. The problem with the email and texting capabilities is with the limitations that the unit presents. It is very cumbersome to view email chains and/or togggle in and out of attachments.
Excerpt: I had been thinking about getting some kind of cell phone with more features on it. I saw the Palm Treo Pro by Sprint and fell in love with it. I had been using it but started to have problems. It would freeze and lock up on me. At first it was only for a few minutes. Then I had to start removing the battery. So I went up to the Sprint store and they gave me a refurb. Well, the same thing happened to this one. I demanded another brand new one.
the Palm Treo is Love and Frustration blended together.

Excerpt: What I love about the Palm Treo is finally having internet access, a full keyboard, and a touch screen on my mobile device. Coming from the Motorolla Razor, it is a huge upgrade in those technology functions. The connection to the internet is relatively quick, but it doesn't do well when downloading large sites, and cannot format them correctly in a mobile screen setting.
Palm Treo's are not my number one choice for a cell phone

Excerpt: The Palm Treo is a high tech phone with several problem areas. They are very bulky and heavy. Trying to figure out how to program this phone can be quite confusing. There are programs and setting, but sometimes you can program or set things up through those applications. Games are available which is nice, but I would have liked to have been given more options than just bubble break and solitaire. I do like the feature of quick dial.
Excerpt: I perviously had a 755p Treo so I was more than happy to try out the windows OS on the Palm pro. The phone was lightweght, great layout of the keyboard ..full keyboard available so no hitting shift or the star key to get a different key. The applications and features on here were easy to use. Plus finding some additional applications for it was rather easy. I did not buy any applications for it so there were plenty of the free ones to do the most basic things you need.
Excerpt: Hmm, palm really needs to think their ergonomics strategy. This phone is a thumb killer.The call quality of the calls was not really great. The other person could hear me hell, but on my end the phone earpiece had a constant hissing sound.The interface is really ugly, Palm did not take the effort of masking windows 6.1 a bit.I am returning the phone.
Pros: 3.5 mm jack, Silence Switch, Decent touchscreen
Cons: Can't turn off the phone, Keyboard is extremely cramped., Can't run Opera Mini, Disconnects from WiFi when goes to sleep
Excerpt: The Palm - Treo Pro Smartphone Cell Phone * is a decent phone. The phone looks good because it is small and slim. I love that the qwerty keyboard is easily accesible. It is great for texting because I can easily hold on to it and text quickly. It's lightweight and I can easily keep it in my pocket and not even feel it. A couple of things that make this Palm phone average are that it is extremely slow. To start up the Internet takes much longer than I would like.
