I am tossing up between the palm treo 680 750 or nokia N95. I am in Australia. My partner say's i am an idiot for wanting the palm because if i want a pda i should just buy a pda and phones that are both are no good. He swears by the n95 but i have seen all the problems that people are having with them (including him) can you please advise me :)
i love this phone.. this is the only phone i have had for over a year and not wanted to change.. its very easy to use and fast.
don`t buy because you saw it, check what you need first should you wait next year bec there plenty of new gadget and bigger memory and powerful all in one and cost a little than what is today!
Please i just need recommendation about Palm 750 phone..Right now i have Iphone, and i would say this is nice phone, but missing couple of apps, and futures..Now i saw palm 750 ATT store, and i start think about this phone, Buy or not...So please, can you tell me couple of things about this phone ?...Thanks
yep, it's going back. shoulda gone with palm OS. windows should stick to PCs. Palm was around for a long time and it's not going anywhere. gonna get the 680. i think the only difference in 680 and 650 is they shed the antenna. keyboard on 750 is weird, gotta use keyboard even when using stylus to message as the ?? and !! are on keys, not on touchpad...a non-issue. i'm hoping the 680 works for me. i plan on it being my one-stop-shop for phone, downloading my med book on it for ER use, ER suite should be a blessing. wish me luck! ciao
To anwer everyone 's questions:
If you want to upgrade the Treo 750 to WM6 go to the Palm web site or go to the best web site for Pocket PC and Smart Phone in the world IMO
Here at this web site you can upgrade your phone for free and learn to unlock it and learn to modify and custom it with softwares.
The other person asked me if they should get the Sony Ericson or Nokia or Palm Treo750. My opinion if you only want a smart phone with full keyboard and do basic email and web and make phone calls then go with Sony Ericson or Nokia. All Pocket PC with Windows Mobile are more superios because of the availablity of softwares and upgrades but the down size is you have to know what you are doing. Anyway for example Im not even sure if you can watch you tube with the Ericson and Nokia smart phones because of their browser. There is way you can watch you tube with your Treo 750 and TV and millions of other things.

joseph, yes, this phone does have the digital keyboard that Palm users are familiat with. You can even choose the "Large Keys" or "Small Keys" option for this digital keyboard. The Large Keys gives you larger keys, but at the expense of having less keys to choose from. The Small Keys makes the keys a bit smaller, but can fit more keys on the keyboard so you don't have to switch between alpha and numeric.
at first i was overwhelmed but right now im having the same problem as almost everone else in the palm forum is having. after less than two months of use, the touchscreen is not working anymore even after doing the soft reset, hard rest andd calibration stuff. very frustrating because this has been a known issue with the only solution provided is having the unit replaced.
Hi Jefri, I got a 750 through Telstra, on the Next G network. It ran well, was able to get a web connection of around 3mbps, but the coverage was poor so ported to Vodafone. Because it was Telstra brand, couldn't use full potential of the HSDPA with Voda, and after a while WM5.0 got a bit sluggish. Recently found an unbranded bootleg upgrade to WM6.0(only because Telstra and Palm won't get off their butts and sort out an official upgrade). Now, with the upgrade it runs super quick, I can get online on it with HSDPA capabilities again and there is no network branding whatsoever. Awesome unit!
to thick...thanx by the way for clearing things up for me but also i wanna know if the touch has a digital keyboard cuz all i know is that it only has qwerty keyboard in it?
Hi, im planning on getting this phone, can somebody tell me some of the problems that you had experienced with this phone?
regarding ur problem with treo 750 bluetooth-mediated transfer of files..did you make sure that u checked receive all incoming beams? its under settings, then go to beam, then just check the box there.
hope that helps.. :)
I bought a Palm Trao 750.
Its Touch Screen is not working.I reset the set.but not working.
Is ther anyone who can help me??Please help.
Has anyone got any tips or links on how to get the WM6.0 upgrade on the Telstra based Treo 750?
Also, forgot to mention, on the Palm website, as far as the WM6.0 upgrade goes, it says it is only compatible with Vodafone and 3, however you only need to have a 3 or Vodafone sim in the handset at the time of installing the upgrade, then you can switch back to any other provider's sim. The installation is based on the network settings of 3 and Vodafone, so like I have already done, you can install the WM6.0 upgrade onto a Telstra based 750 with no problems at all. There is also a patch available to get rid of the internal network branding that comes up when you switch to flight mode etc. Hope this helps.
to joseph, i think, it will depend on how you will be using your phone. the treo 750 has no wi-fi, but you can do video call through it by its 3G capability, while the htc touch has wifi, but no 3G capability. In one way or another, each of the two devices has its own strength and weaknesses, like the treo do have keyboard, the touch doesnt (but u can operate it like how you do on the iphone because of its touch flo F.S. navigation), the touch has better camera quality, though it has a bit slower processor. the biggest advantage of touch is its better software which is WM6 compared to treo's WM5, but you can upgrade the treo's to WM6 if you are persevering to search for an upgrade and intructions to it. If you will ask me, I'll go for the touch because I like to search internet on wireless hotspots. Again, it depends on how you will use these two as ur personal phone. hope this helps. :-)
