**I'm really not the techi type, so opinions would be very much helpful, and appreciated. Thanks man!
palm should stick to the original palm os....that rocks....windows in palm...yukk!!! they are ruining the phone.....come on palm your os rules its better than windsows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have used all types of smartphones myself in the past and I agree with you on everything you say about it. It seems to me that you understand
I have quite a problem that no-one can sort it out for me and that is reading the WebPages. I get connected to the local internet provider but when it comes to reading ( locating ) and opening the web pages I get a message to check my settings.
The setting ( for PDA phones in Croatia only )) I have checked and they seem to be be correct.
Hopping you will have the time to read this mail and give me some suggestion to this problem.
I Have recently purchased a Treo 750 from the USA with WM 6.0 Built in, i have had PPCs for over 10 years now and had every one.
My opinion of this device...I agree with other posts that this for me is the best one handed PPC you can get,and though it doesnt run at the front of the pack with say the Kaiser which i have used..i think that this is a much better work mate...using the white dials to input telephone numbers straight on the homepage nice touch...searching emails and internet straight off the homepage....again nice touch
I am impressed with things like listening to music using TCPMP sound very very good nice punchy bass and treble puts other PPCs to shame..movie play back as long as you encode it properly is clear and entertaining no stutter and playing games on 240x240 screen is very good as well.
all and all a good solid device and have no regrets and im using this PPC Phone much more than ive used other PPC because its just that good...one last thing and this is impressive Telephone Conversation sound quality this has to be as good as landline its that clear..WOW for me 10/10
Can you advise me where you got the WM6 update from?
Am planning on getting the Palm750 but the only WM6 updates I have come across is for the Palm750v.
For the people that dont like this phone.
1. Either you are a Palm OS person and not Windows OS.
2. You need to customize it to make it a powerful unit by adding custom softwares. If not then just get a regular phone. I know some people get a powerful device to look cool but they dont know what the hell they are doing and just complain
JUST A GREAT DEVICE!!!
Well, I read some complaints here but keep in mind there is no such thing as a perfect device. Anyway, I just picked up the Treo 750 and put Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional on it and got it unlocked to use with T-Mobile. The WM6 is clean unranded ROM/Software, I did have to add the Arcsoft MMS program because it did not come with it. After adding my custom softwares and applications this unit is awesome. The 300mhz processor is very nice and smooth. I had other Pocket PC and Smart Phone and the Treo is the best one hand operation Pocket PC. I had pocket PC that had the slid out keyboard and they are just a pain, the smartphone is too dumb and copy and paste even with after market software is still a pain. Lack of Wifi is not really an issue cause I dont use wifi when I had it, I dont use the camera to take family potraits so 1.3MP is just fine. This unit can use a GPS but its not that important. The important thing is that it has a good processor, solid built, and a Pocket PC with one hand operation. Trust me, I used many many devices and do programming for alot of Pocket PC and I definitely love the Treo 750. If you guys have any questions just email me.
i lost my palm in vietnam???? im outraged at your insensitive product calling
Great phone. Only 3G (broadband speed) Treo availible. Switched from sidekick 3 to this phone. This is definitely a grown man's sidekick with much faster 3G versus much slower EDGE. And 3rd party app support. Works great with MobiTV.
If Palm people would pull their heads out of their backsides they would make a mint by adding WiFI, A 3 Mp Camera and more internal memory, also upgrade screen to 262k colors.
And STAY with the PALM OS instead of Windows Mobile.
The Treo 650 is my favorite if they would add those things it would be the PERFECT phone.
Guess Palm doesn't want to make a profit.
this phone sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And one more thing, drop the WM5 and stick to palm OS, it has its flaws, but their is a certain market that doesnt want to use WM5, if palm just starts paying as much attention to their hardware as what they do on their phone exterior, stylus etc they wont look back. (the perfect pda ofcourse would be a treo650 with wlan, 3g, edge, java support out the box and a better camera, if nokia can stick all that in one of their crappiest phones, y cant palm?)
palm has the greatest "feel" of any phone ive ever owned, a solid PDA with a great finish. (i had an i-mate k-jam for 6 months and the the paint peeled the logo came off, the stylus kept sliding out - crap crap crap). Anyway, if palm just gets their ui department to create a more flowing system with better specs it will be the best pda/phone on the market.
this is the one of the worst products ever.
sooooooo buggy. even alarm does not work fine. speaker turn off by itself sometime until hard reset the device. this is shame for palm and have to learn a lot from htc (but on cover there is made in taiwan, no sure is not htc :)
Hi All, Anyone can tell me how to use wlan? can i input a external Wlan?
WM OS on a Palm is a joke! Palm, you guys need to freshen up yourself.
next update needs 400/500mhz cpu, correct resolution, wifi (definetly). Of course also gps would be a nice addon, but not neccesary. Then would buy :)
