Just used it for a month, found it user friendly, but as usual palm that I dun like is no multi function such as the Windows. Then the keypad is too small n look not so good, and the stylus is too cheap-looking.
One problem I have is that it's so hard to browse, and it is not stable when I run the IM+ for instant messenger, therefore I have to soft reset it again and again. Although connection already established, sometimes it still can't connect to the web. I don't know whether this is the problem with the internet provider or the device but I will find out asap since it is very important.
But so far it's okay except for the internet connection which is so frustrating.
i like this one cuz its kewl very col i want that one bnut im already gettin the walk man
This phone seems really good. I just want to know how much the additional cost for Windows Live Messenger is?
DJ, 18 Sep 2008Im About to getting a Centro, but first i want to know if it have Messenger like Windows live ... moreHi!
You should definitively get one, you won't be disapointed. :)
There are many IM solutions available, I strongly recommend Mundu IM, since it has support for many protocols.
Im About to getting a Centro, but first i want to know if it have Messenger like Windows live Messenger or Yahoo messenger or if i can install any other. And also i would like to know if you can use an mp3 song as a ringtone???
I'll waiting the answer! Thanks!!
Hey hey, I'm back. So far so good, It's been one week since I have answered all my incoming calls that way and so far no freezing in all calls.

Like you and many others, I too experience about half my incoming calls freezed when I answered them. Very frustrating. I have tried two different cache-emptying programs (FlushIt and Reset Doctor) but problem still exists. Currently I am trying the method of answering the calls pressing and holding the green (Send) button for 0.5 to 1 second, instead of pressing the button and releasing quickly, so far my past 3-4 calls have not frozen up yet. Looking promising so far. Try it.
YO! Please note that the palm centro does have an infrared port. As you face it righthand side you will notice a black patch halfway down the screen. WAH_LAH your infrared port. Yes it works. I interface with my NOKIA 5200 and NOKIA 3110c.
On the 3110c please upload the latest software upgrade as the version shipped with it was buggy!
I had my palm centro for like close to 6 months. I love it, except, when a phone call comes in, it freezes on me. And i have no choice bt to miss that call cos it's hanged. And then do a soft restart. once i ignore it and after a while it unhang on it's own. Feels like it lapsed or something. And I am very frustrated with it cos most of the time when someone calls me, I cant answer it. at least 6 out of 10 times. If thats the software problem or I just happen to get a faulty phone? And I am thinking of switching to Palm 680, any advice on that? cos Im finding centro qwerty buttons small for me to type fast. If I have long nails, worse. But other then that, I really love using this phone. Very user frendly.
I have had my Centro for a week and I love it. I was a bit hesitant in buying it as no stores seemed to have any reviews etc. about it.
I haven't had any problems and it has a lot of GREAT features.
I mainly use my phone for txt msgs, email, calendar and the google maps.
Whilst skeptical at first, I was quickly converted to a huge fan. The centro really surprised me.
If you are not going to use it for business but rather because you have a busy social life then I think the Centro is a good choice and is great value for money.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2008can u modd these things? if so plz post an opinion tellin me the website. thnx in advanceI don't see any point modding any Palm devices. They're locked if you get it with a contract. You can have the carrier to unlock it for you after a while or get an unlocked version...
800w is the best palm device so far....for a price, but this was the best before 800w. Go for Centro for basic usage. If you don't need Wifi and GPS, go for Centro, they're affordable. If price doesn't matter for you, go for 800w, you get the exact same thing in term of basic usage.
I won't recommend Centro if you need it for GPS...buying a separate GPS device could be cheaper than 800w but it's troublesome.
can u modd these things?
if so plz post an opinion tellin me the website.
thnx in advance
