i purchased a palm 750 a couple of months ago. i love it when it works but have wanted to throw it against a wall at least once a week. the phone all of the sudden stops working for me. sometimes, it just gets locked up and constantly clicks (as if i'm holding the arrow button down)while the screen is locked. other times, i miss calls because the sound quits working. I have to pull the battery about once every other day to correct the problem with the sound. i've heard something about a patch? does anyone know of a fix for this? i returned a phone w/i the 30 day period but am past that now and am stuck with the one i have. a friend of mine just bought one and his phone locks up saying "call in progress" while no call is being made. he can't end the call or do anything other than pull the battery to reboot. please help.
I've been using Palm for the past 8 years. Diligently upgrading from the one to the other. After I dropped my 650 one too many times I though its time to upgrade. At that time only the 650 was available and I mistakenly chose a Nokia E61. What a piece of horse poo! Anyway I got my Treo 750v 2 weeks ago after talking to myself in public many times over the fact that I will be using a Windowze OS. Anyway, at first I was very impressed but after ONLY 2 weeks my batery lasts 22 hours after charging it full, my phone has a mind of its own and decides when it wants to ring and at which volume. This differ everytime IF I am so fortunate to get a call in. When this happen and I am able to press the answer key it take 3-5 seconds before I can hear the other person. Beside that the keypad also chooses to switch itself on at any given time. I contacted our Palm distributors in South Africa and I am exchanging the phone for a new one Friday. BESIDE the above I love the device. Well maybe for Active Stink but that is another story. This smart phone does what it is supposed to do (well wehn it is working in my case). It is fast and working on the web, Skyping, e-mail etc etc is a breeze. Overall just one irritation is that it seems that the left E-mail key is coded into the OS and you cannot assign another application to it. BUT I do understand that under Windowze Mobile 6 much of these problems are resolved. Just my 2 (or 200) cents!
I bought a Palm 750 in Hong Kong. At first i was very pleased with it though it doesn't have WiFi. It looked and felt good and was easy to use. But 2 weeks later I couldn't open the messaging application. I contacted the Palm Service Center. They were very quick and responsive. They suggested a hard reset. That worked but of course I had to reload all my data. One week later the touch screen didn't respond. A tried the hard reset again but this time nothing happened. So I had to send it in to the Palm Service Center. I should get it back in a couple of days. I'll give it one more try but if the Treo breaks down again, I'm switching to the HTC S620. At least that has WiFi.
i dun believe palm service center is that bad..i ahd great experiences there...they offer me very clear instructions and solutions which i believe no other brand does...
And how come its free?? can u explain?? if its really so..i dun mind making a trip there.
this phone is for free in the philippines, in fact i already got 2.
come on visit philippines!
I get this phone 6 months ago and usability, reliability and functions are OK. The only issue is the freezes and malfunction which can happen (like when you put it in silence and come back to normal mode, it doesn't ring anymore, or touch panel is deactivated or keypad not working,...). Moreover, customer service is very crap because they absolutely want to avoid return. You consequently have to prove which is really hard when your bug is ramdom. Those issues clearly kill the product because you can't use it anymore as a business phone (imagine loosing a call because your phone didn't ring or vibrate). Bad luck
does anybody know when WM6 for Treo is going to be released ? or how to get the upgrade?
Hi Everyone, I am a design consultant (Well, some of us have to be!)good design is very important to me however, good design without great function would be like having a sleek new merc sl with a 1.3 engin or perhaps a cherry muffin made with low fat butter, it looks nice but hasn't got the taste. When it comes to business, I make the right decitions based on all the facts that I have, now, without going on to much, I have a little problem that I'm sure many of you must have gone through the same painstaking journey that I have, searching for the ultimate PDA/phone! I realy want to use a windows based device and have the convenience of one database so that I can look up a client and call or email them easily. I also need SAT nav as I often get lost. I also would love to have a great contact management database programme on the device aswell, apart from that, I want a superbly designed quality product with an amazing high contrast detailed screen. I also would like a holiday, a new garden shed and a huge house like my brothers, but all that can wait as I am desperate to buy the right PDA/Phone. So, the question is...Is the Palm 750v it? or should I forget about the windows and buy the new Nokia N95, or wait to see the new Nokia communicator or forget it all and get the old filofax out of the cupboard? Any suggestions please would be welcome.
sorry to all those guys out there hu insists that this is a lousy phone...

Been using this phone for last 2 months now - active sync has been a problem once in awhile - but the real trouble is that it needs to be soft reset once two / three days. The messaging app needs a serious re-work !!
what a bad battery !! I mean that if you need a Phone to work you need to use it and you can't work with a battery that last half a day!!!!don't buy it if you need to connect and work with e mail notes and someone else it's a very bad phone.
