The company even noted then that the Garnet OS was 4-5 years out of date. They invested a sizable amount of money in creating the new Web OS for a reason. The phone is actually quite nice for the period it was created(2007). If you recently bought the phone do not complain about it sucking because you simply didnt do your home work before you bought it. The phones threaded messaging is still better than many phones on todays market but call quality leaves much to be desired. Over all not bad from a 2007 phone.
I had this phone for less than a year and it just died. I changed the battery, did a hard and soft reset but was useless. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.
Palm is one of the shixxxx phones I have ever used in my whole life. It's only one month old. 75% of the time when I receive a call it's getting stuck. Don't ever buy this piece of shixxx.
it is not so user friendly even if i'm using it for a while and even though i got the hang of it.. it's just ughh!!
this is a really graet phone.... picture quality is absolutely great!!! better than alot of other smart phones, but theres a flaw i came across and other persons seem to have the same problem, the phone freezes when making and receiving calls.... otherwise its a really nice phone, great features....
My spacebar, backspace, eneter, alt, zero and shift aren't working on the keyboard; if I want to write any thing it looks like this "itlookslikethis". Does anyone know why that might be? Or better yet how to fix it?
I just wanna know how to Hotsync may Palm Centro with my Sony laptop???

This would be a generally good phone if it weren't for one problem. It often freezes when making or receiving calls.
I first thought that it was a problem with my phone, but after talking with many owners of the same model, it really seems to be a design flaw, inherent to it. I have seen many comments on this problem right here as well.
Unfortunately, palm support is not very supportive and seems to have a problem even acknowledging the problem. Even having the phone changed for another one does not seem to resolve the problem. This really made me lose my confidence in Palm as a company.
I loved this phone for the first week, after that it has been useless. Beware.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2010well shud i purchase this phone or not!!!Definitely buy it, it's fun and actually has more individuality options that there more recent pre - although the palm pre is saweet. Still, teh centro is a great phone. I am totally in love with mine, i do sooo much on it I can't tell you. Have fun
I have a centro, but battery really sucks, only 18 or 20 hours of charge, then uncomunicated. is it only mine?

It does get a little irritating but considering the other problems I've been having (see previous comment), launching Dial when I plug the earphone is the least of my concerns lol
So, I have a Palm Centro. In the beggining (first couple of weekes) I was quite pleased - the qwerty is good, I like Palm OS, and the camera is nice in spite of the low Mpx. After a while, however, I started to have trouble in receiving and making calls. The cellphone function would freeze in both situations and, what's even worse, I would not hear a thing on the calls, but the other side could hear me - that almost caused me pretty embarassing situations. I thought it was a problem with my cellphone, but after talking to some people who own this in my country (Brazil), I found out apparently it's a problem with the Centro model. Dozens of people have reported the same sort of trouble and still Palm has done nothing.
To complete such bad canvas, it's the second time I have had my phone changed (Palm does not fix cellphones) while in manufactors warranty, that's to say, in less than a year. Both changes were for additional problems, not the freezing one, yet the phone continues to freeze.
In a sentence - the Palm Centro is a great Palm, yet a awfull cellphone. Beware of it.
