So, what's the overall conclusion?
good or bad?
i want to know, before buying it.
official palm website issued treo 680 battery fix.check it out http://www.palm.com/680cameraupdate
Hi guys, does this palm treo 680 support 2GB SD card instead of 1GB? thank you!
I bought the phone in the first day of availability (November 23rd 2006) from Palm internet site for my travel abroad _ I used it for about 4 weeks abroad during the holidays _ the battery life improved gradually with day by day use _ I got to the point now where the battery holds almost two days of heavy usage of PDA & phone _ I charged the phone yesterday and keeping it in stand by mode with no kind of usage it consumed only 5% of the battery after almost 20 hours. I think it is critical to expose the battery to everyday discharging cycles (by normally using the phone) and charge it as often as one can _ it will eventually work in few weeks. The phone is great (had no problems after 4 weeks of usage) and similar to 650 that I curently use with another provider. Hope it helps...
Want back the 650 I replaced the 680 w. Battery lasts half a day with regular usage compared to 650 battery which lasted me 2 days with similar usage. few pluses include no external antenae
Palms are so ugly. I wish they would be more stylish, not only in the outside but also in the LCD.
In Aisa..the LCD is much more sharp.
It's like watching a plasma television.
Why did palm not crystalize their screens?
Seems everybody complain about battery than anything else.
Shorter battery life is really a frustrating thing for every pda user. Even though u buy a spare battery of the same capacity it is still frustrating. Just the same as me with samsung i320. Samsung even provided a small spare 'battery charging box' to charge the battery separately. I gave up using i320. Because i can't get a bigger battery.
But p990i is not the same story. Its battery life was very short during first week of use, but 2 weeks later i found the battery life increase considerably. It couldnt last for a day, but now, it last for 2 days of very heavy uses! Sounds a bit strange. Yes, it takes about 2 weeks for the battery to become normal. This is my experience with p990i only.
My n93's battery was very good right from the day i bought it, it last for 2 days.
Better go to some online forum like treonaut or brighthand, etc for some advice on 680's battery issue.
They recommend to do a in-cradle soft-reset(or maybe warm reset) and perform some complete battery-recharge-discharge for a couple of times, and wait for 2 weeks and see what happen. Dont rush to return it to palm. Sometimes but not always, battery needs to be charged and discharged for some time before it can become normal, but its not recommended by experts. Anyway, who cares, as long as the battery can be longer we can do anything to make it happen.
The worst thing is to buy a extended 2400mhz battery from seidio, if u dont mind that it gets a bit fatter.
Usually the worst thing is that u can't get a bigger battery. Now that we can get it, why complain?
Real treo power fans like me will only care about the real functionalities, rather than fatter body. it doesnt worry me much about the fatter bottom as long as i can keep 680 well and running.
Maybe its the problem of the battery meter software inside 680. And make sure after using camera do a soft reset. And IR off, bluetooth off, backlight set to as low as possible, etc, to save battery. Hope rom update will fix these issues.
Always resort to online forums will solve ur problem sometimes.
Hope u enjoy.
really true that battery life is a disappointment with this new treo phone. treo 650 has better performance & great battery life... it would be really stupid to compare treo 650 with this phone coz treo 650 is really better than this. had it for 1 week & to my disappointment, sold it & got back to my old treo 650.
Hi guys, I'm about to order the palm treo 680 is the battery life that suck? Does it support multi language? thank you!
battery lasts not even a day!!! use the 680 more then a week now and can't believe what I got, phone itself is good, better then the 650 to my opinion, but useless when you do not make it with one battery through a normal day!! how can palm say that in stand by the battery lasts up to 300 hours?!?
how do i get ringtones for my treo...like real tones...i tried to download but didnt know how...and i would like to somehow convert music from my comp and transfer it to my treo and set as a ringtone...is that possible? if so, can someone tell me how i can do that...
yes. true that battery life dont even last 24 hrs. treo 650 far far better.
i saw the pictutre,the botton. green colour botton, is it equal to the phone call botton? below it, there is a botton with phone logo, what does it means? where is the OPTION botton as Treo650?
can it be true that the battery of my treo 680 lasts not even for 24 hours in stand by modus???? or is it a hardware failure? can I do something about it?
Rachel, to customize your ringtones and set MP3 ringtones, you have to buy RINGO PRO, a useful software. How much? About 20-30 U$S dollars. I've bought it, but I had one problem since installation: my Treo 650 turned off and on by its own way. One problem solved by Palm Argentina Customer Service (I've wrote it 4 everyone who had this problem too). So, if you want to know more, please write me firstname.lastname@example.org
See U soon.
