DANGER !! DANGER !! DANGER !! The treo 650 is an invitation to "th mother of all migranes"... Unrilaible, frustrating, cumbersome... Bought one 10 days ago, so far I am on my 3rd device. Fried the first two witha runaway charger... so hot I had to use a wash cloth from the hotel (on the 2nd device). applications such as the camera only cause a reseting of the device... ABSOLUTELY no trust or faith on wether the device will work or not. Have missed lots of incoming calls... no reason, no voice mail...
STAY AWAY FROM IT. I am so thankful that I am within the 39 day buyers remorse.. You betcha its going back to cingular....
this is my dream phone and also motorola v1150 and v560 those phone are very nice!!!
Hi to all,
I would like to know that the Treo 650 supports as a dial-up modem or not. Is there any 3rd party softwares that I could use so I can use dial-up with my Treo 650.
I heard that someone said that the Treo 650 has some script to install so that it can dial-up.
Anyone please help me out. Thanks.
Comming from tre 180-treo 270 treo 600, sony 910i, qtek909 and now treo 650.
Summerise all treo devices workt just fine and did what they advertised. I tryed the pocket pc and this was nightmare, reseting, upgrating the eproms, installing reinstalling etc. Every day was thinking will my phone work yes or no, on each call you receive asking your self will this work with my headset (bt) or no. Actualy westing more time to put questions in stad of make or take the necessary phones.
The main differense between the windows based phones and symbian/palm os is that the last phones/pda worked withous asking you if they go to do what they are suppose to do they just do. The difference between Treo 650 and the 910 of sony/ericsson is the keyboard is mutch better and personal i'm used to work with the palm. But to my point of vieuw there is for the time been no phone/pda that is works as good as the treo 650. Configuration took just five minutes no questions have been asked. It just worked from the very first time. Bt sound quality perfect. Perhaps the new phone from hp the hw6515 will bring even beter results but I stay on the fact that for the momment the treo 650 is perfect no resets no installing and reinstalling soft. it just works.
Ps: I'm just a user and not worker at palm.
Treo 650 owner for 6 months
Great battery life! 3days standby
650 has removable/replaceable battery
QWERTY is VERY useful text messaging
Good size and rugged
Lots of good software out there.
With 1Gig SD- this a great mp3 player
Calculator convert EVERYTHING
Fits in pocket comfortably
EDGE speeds, although I've never
used it and frankly don't use
this for webbrowsing.
Software is easier to use and more
intuitive than other pdas.
Vibration is not strong enough
The excel program, not user friendly
doesn't include stereo headset,
in fact stereo headset from treo
is not cheap
occasional, 1 in 2wk, OS freezes
PDA phones are not perfect by any means but the Treo 650 is, in my opinion, the best PDA phone. The O2s and windows based phones have ridiculously low battery life. I dunno how I'd live without this phone now. Great calendar, I never miss appointments and meetings now, I listen to mp3s when I'm on the train, I practice writing chinese characters, I read ebooks. The damn calculator does everything, even finance. I don't use the web browsing much and I don't play games on my phone so I can't make any recommendations on that end.
I bought a treo 650 GSM unlocked a while ago. Terrible choice. Constant resets (4-6 times a day) WITHOUT any third party software installed. I have tried all of the suggestions posted by various communities but to no avail. I would not reccomend this phone to anyone.
I am attemtping to decide between the TREO 650, and Samsung I700. What does everyone think?
Will the Treo 650 work with iSync (address book etc...)on a Mac?
Or do I have to use the Palm software?
Far from perfect, yet...as close as can be. Phone, calendar, contacts, documents on the go, email, SMS, MMS, Web, cam, video, and mp3 player....what more could you ask for? This is an excellent working tool for the contemporary business person. A tad bulky, but a small price to pay for a mobile office that fits in your coat pocket. Imagine what the 700 or 800 series will be like...rumours abound, they will be slimmer and not necessarily smaller, and better quality res for screen and cam. A solid performer, worth every penny if you demand and excellent business tool that offers it all.
The Treo 650 is a smartphone. Obviously it is MORE than just simply a phone like the Razr or a Nokia. To simply give up on it after one day of simple-minded use, as one poster here had done and "proudly" proclaim they had gone back to a V3 smacks of extreme foolishness or ignorance. I had migrated from a PocketPC to this, and I can truly say my Treo beats ANY existing smartphone on the market hands down. Yes, it's that good and if you can afford it, rush to the store and get one! P.S: my experience is resets occur due to software error 99.9 pct of the time. And after 3 or 4 days of using it properly, you'll start to wonder how you ever got along without it, I guarantee! :)
I am in India & does it make sence to by a TREO 650 with the kind o fservice & software buggs it has. I would also like to know if any one from India owns one.

One day after I purchased my Treo 650, it started acting up. It would reboot and turn on and off in a continuous loop all by itself. I tried a soft reboot and a hard reboot, and even taking out the battery and putting it back in, and it still would be stuck in a loop of booting up and shutting down. I put a screen protector which comes with the Treo 650 box. The screen protector caused the touch screen pda to act up and not work, so I had to tak it off. Finally I took it back and purchased a Razor Phone which is amazing. I bought the Treo 650 because I had the Treo 600 for two years and was pleased with it. Even the 600 had it's problems with the headphone jack and the speaker not working. Stay away from Treo.
Treo 650 is a nice phone with good design, no doubt that everyone likes it. I've find out the rediculous problem about this Treo 650. My customer called up and told me about the broken antenna. So I call up PalmOne and what they told me "You need to pay about $179 USD for a replacement unit ". What a stupid joke. Jz a small matter of the antenna and you need to replace a new unit. Even Nokia services are far.. I mean FAR more better than Treo 650 phones and Treo series. Services not that damn good, need to send to the sevice centre near by. What a stupid joke again... My last opinion, dun buy PalmOne phones or PDA, not good and waste a lot of time when sending for repair.
Buy phones that gives you a lot of services like Sony or Nokia which easily available everywhere !!!!
Question, will this phone sync with isync thru bluetooth?
Mac OSX computer
Marko the menu on Treo 600 and 650 is very fast. Also sms writing. I cant complain at all about it. And Im really very demanding with the toys :)
if you are in a tight budget buy treo 600, and if you have a lot money buy treo 650, both is great
Hi treo maniacs,
I am in Vietnam. I have been thinking about buying a Treo smartphone since last December. My need is to have a phone that allows me to check my emails too in a proper manner. Did not buy a 600 knowing that the 650 was to be released early 2005.
Now my Sony Ericson T630 is dead and I need to buy it. Both models are now on offer here. The 600 @ $400, which seems a good deal and 650 @ $770, which is ... hard spending to digest... Still I can't decide. Buying the old one or the latest one... Appreciate your opinions.
