  • Excerpt: My boss tells me im going to need a smartphone starting next month. i think to my self "A smartphone? I've been using my Nokia flip phone for years..." i thought it would be costy. But then I came to a Verizon Store and a service rep showed a bunch of smartphones... old, new, mostly over $300. But then, at the last shelf, there was this phone. it sat there, and i love the idea of flip phones. touchscreens are hard for me to use. i asked "how much?

Solid Phone, But Could Be Better

Ryan, Phone Arena
30 August 2007
  • Excerpt: I bought this phone mainly because I cannot stand the Verizon red interface. I have flashed the last 2 phones I got from Verizon in order to make it into something pseudo useable, as they simply cripple the phones because of their greediness, and in turn make them absloutly awful. This phone doesn't have any of Verizon's apps on it, they did manage to lock putting on outside apps that wern't signed by them, but that was a very simple thing to override, and enabling OBEX...

Nice Phone

  • Excerpt: I just got the phone and it has been really nice intro to windows mobile. I had an issue with Vista though. I didn't realize you had to enable Windows Mobile devices and not just Sync center. Then the firewall interfered with the sync so I added the rule and now all is well. The battery lasted all day for me with frequent use, bluetooth on and off through out the day. I love the clam shell style fits nicely in my pocket, doesn't look like I am holding a laptop to my ear.

  • Excerpt: This phone is the number one phone i ever had. Pro: Tethering: If it has all 5 bars, it's just like having Comcast/Cox/Verizon DSL high speed internet with power boost! Internet on Handset: Same!! Con: 1-Turning on/Start up a little slow. 2-If you download alot make sure that you have a mini SD memory card. If not it may slow you phone a little. Make sure you have a that if you are one of the people who download alot.

  • Excerpt: I just got the phone as work phone from my company. A lot of issues in the phone reported in different reviews can be fixed by just reading the manual that came with the phone. Spent jalf an hour reading the manual and a lot of issues can be fixed!!! I will put in a more detailed review after i have had it for a couple of weeks.

Pantech PN-820 Review - GOOD

ss100x, Phone Scoop
13 April 2007
  • Excerpt: I have been waiting for a clamshell that was Windows mobile and this fits the bill nicely. I will say I bought the extra battery, just because...I am on the road a LOT. REALLY NICE: Synchs in Vista Mobile Center flawlessly. Shows up correctly by it's device name. Took only a few seconds to pair my Treo bluetooth headphone. Works with the Ford Sync option in my car. That is a lifesaver.

Not bad at all

  • Excerpt: I am a phone nut - had the blackberry (actually love it but found it too addicting)but this phone does everything I want it to do. I don't surf the web so web access isn't important to me. I really need a real time calander and all my contacts to sync with my laptop. The software was a piece of cake to install and I was synched in about 5 mins. I love the phone. A couple minor details: phone ring volume could be better, but I use mostly vibrate so it works for me.

Pantech 820 : No Bluetooth Voice Command

PotatoPanMan, Phone Scoop
13 April 2007
  • Excerpt: I have been using the new Verizon PN-820 for 1 week now. It is really great. Most everything works as expected. This is the ONLY Verizon Smartphone (Windows Mobile OS) withOUT a tiny keyboard. It syncs with Outlook: smooth as pig grease. BUT, it will not accept voice commands or voice calls thru the bluetooth headset. I called Verizon and Motorola. I also went to the Verizon store and spent 1 hour with a tech. Their conclusion: the feature just does not work!

Adequate but Disappointing. No Voice Dial via Bluetooth

  • Excerpt: Don't need in-phone camera, care less about reading email/surfing net on tiny screen, & idea of PAYING to watch VIDEO on tiny screen almost offensive, but thought might enjoy freedom of wireless headset & ability to download audiobooks & use phone as mp3 player to listen, + PDA features including ability to synch Outlook with the Outlook on my computer. PRO: Phone looks fine; Seems sturdy: took number of HARD FALLS before got the padded case.

Not Ready for Prime Time

13 April 2007
  • Excerpt: This phone has potential, especially since I have lugged an i600 around for 2+ years. But the software is just not there. Pros - Outlook sync - But took my tech guy 10 hours at $90/hour, goes down if administator not logged on server 100% of time. Form Factor - OK Cons - Many are repetitive from other reviews but valid Front lit panel not really usable for even Caller ID, timing is so short, did not use to wear watch, now I have to.
