Excerpt: I did give this Sumsung SPH i700 phone/pda a 4 because it does almost everything well. But sadly to say..... there is a problem. I decided to run a video on my pda. I downloaded it into the sd memory chip and switched on turbo mode then started up the windows media player 8.5 that comes with the unit. It runs very choppie. like every second frame is missing.... I thought it was my sd memory chip so i installed it into a hp ipac 1940 and tada....
Excerpt: After setting it up with 2003, it's been working like a charm, esp with Goodlink service. Runs mpegs, mp3s, games, take pictures, open Word, Excel files, Adobe etc along with the phone service and internet/data service, it pretty much beats what I see out there, dealt with the new Treos, Blackberries and Siemens already but this is the most flexible when it comes to apps. Wish it had a faster processor. Waiting for the new i7300 to come out so I can check it out.

Excerpt: This phone is a great concept, with the exception of no bluetooth.
PROS 1) The big size, believe it or not. This originally turned me off to the phone. I preferred the form factor of the Samsung SCH-i600. I didn't go with that phone because it could not run am industry application I needed. To my surprise, the i700 actually could browse the internet & it's large screen was just big enough to make the device usefull to browse the web.
2) Software voice dialing.
Excerpt: I used to use a LG phone and connect to my laptop via tehther cable for internet access. phone ran down fast, cumbersome cable connection. Using phone keys for sms sucks!
Everthing has changed now!!! this phone/pda is the ONLY one you should consider.
On Telus (BC, Canada) all the features are good to go with the exception of the elusive GPS!?!
I won't list the pros as it does everything as promised, read the features and go.
Excerpt: Well, besides what you CAN do with it, which is quite a bit, I only have three complaints so far. I wish I could download backgrounds to use on my today screen and files to use with the media player. The other complaint is the voice recognition software, why isn't that installed? 600.00 phone?? Hmmmm....?? The last one is I wish you could just pull in appointments on pop instead of syncing it.
Other than those three things, I'm pleased.
Excerpt: I have had this pda/phone for almost 6 months now and I am very impressed. Previously, I've had an HP pda and a separate cel phone. It's been great to just carry all in one.
Pros: Speaker phone works great. I have pop mail; can access the Internet; have an account program (purchased separately) for my checking, credit cards, etc.
