Hi I have been using this phone (non Vodafone version) for the past couple of months, after loosing my Nokia N95 8gb. The Palm 500 is overall not a bad unit for the price you can get it for. It is very very different to use than a Nokia, has great rececption, much better than the Nokia. But it has poor battery life, it needs to be gharged daily, it also has an annoying habit of somtimes looseing network and you need to switch off and turn it back on to get coverage. Also the camera, best to describe it as it odes not have one if you no what I meen.
Tony, 08 Jan 2009I like mine and it has a long battery life before it needs a charge - have you checked your se... morehalfords have a very good sat-vnav micro sdcard and it works great for me on my acer.

And if you want to send anything,then you have to BEAM the file.

Rahul, 08 Jan 2009I want add FM radio Option please update your technology. Tahnks rahul Have you considered that this handset doesn't have an FM radio as it is targeted for business clients, which is why it allows a multitude of file applications aimed at business people.
Fhs, 03 Apr 2009How do I close running application, anyone knows? Please help.Try going to the open running application and press the left arrow key until you have backed out of the application. Failing that, which should work, go to the File Manager under SETTINGS and enter menu and try closing from there if need be.
Hope this helps.

Jenny Lim, 29 Aug 2008This phone is userfriendly and is not very expensive compare with other phones in the market. ... moreTotally agree with you! We should be glad just to have mobile phones let alone all the other guff people seems to demand on their handsets today. I remember the time we had no cellphones - they simply weren't even heard of. I worked for a Telco at the time they announced that within 5 years we would essentially have handsets we could carry almost anywhere. We were in awe! My first handset, a Motorola Ultra Sleek 9660 [go look that one up!] didn't even tell you anything more than the number the call came from. As for sms - forget it, and the handset hung off my hip like a collapsable umbrella or baton. SO please people - be grateful for the technology you are being offered today and remember that the more features - the higher the price and contrary to popular belief I think most people would prefer to sacrifice some features for a lower price. Next we'll be wanting our phones to work as tv remotes! Where will it end?
