Review: Palm Treo 800w
Windows Media Player is included, but that doesn't make this a music phone. Once the player launched, on-screen touch music controls – play/pause, rewind, fast forward, etc. – are tiny and difficult to manipulate with your finger. There are no corresponding physical control keys.
Absence of physical music control keys is a handicap once you start moving into other applications while music is playing. If you want to pause or skip, you have to circle back around though the Start menu to the Windows Media Player to get to the music controls.
If the Sprint Music Store is offered on this phone, I couldn't find it.

The 800w includes a generous 256 MB of memory, 170 MB user assignable for your files; the 700w only included on 128 MB, and just 60 MB for your use. The side microSD slot can accommodate up to 8 GB of additional flash memory.
There is no 3.5mm or even 2.5mm headphone jack. Either use the crummy free microUSB terminated earbuds or buy a separate microUSB-3.5mm adapter to use headphones of your choice.
