Cons: No Interent No MP3 No Camera Had it for a day and then emails stopped coming in. Called support and they had me remove the account and wait for 30 minutes before readding the account. I do not know if this is the solution.
"Nice device design, but email is slow, no true SMS."
7 June 2009
Pros: Low cost, no contract email and texting (kind of), bundled in a lightweight easy to use (though somewhat crippled) package. Some of the technical staff are amazingly knowledgeable and considerate. Company has personal support.
Cons: There is NO way to text FROM a cell phone to a peak directly; the cell phone user MUST use an SMS to email gateway address if their SMS client will not permit an email address in the SMS "to" line (many permit numbers only), or..., send you an email.
"This Product Absolutely Makes No Financial Sense"
14 April 2009
Pros: The only people the Peek would make sense for is people who want to retrieve e-mail but don't have the money to shell out for broadband or a wireless data plan. But that said, those are the people who don't have the $20 to give to Peak every month.
Cons: $19.95 a month for just e-mail retrieval and text messaging is way too much money. If this was $9.95 a month it would make allot more sense. Below I will give you a unbias breakdown of why this makes no financial sense.
