centro on verizon?

They are selling this for only 9.99 now. I know it's been out for awhile and I'm wondering if it's because a new one is coming soon and they are trying to get rid of it??

Palm Centro 690 girl phone?

I've heard the Palm Centro's name tossed around as a "GIRLY PHONE"...is there any truth to this? Anything that makes it girly? There isn't any sparkles or stuff on it or some pink barbie thing that I'm missing right?

Thanks
Not with Verizon. IT's blue. I mean, it has a shine to it, I guess. I wouldn't call it sparkly. I don't think it's girly at all. It's small, so maybe the small keypad lends itself to being easier for smaller fingers, but I wouldn't call it a "girl pho...

Voice Dial with Verizon Centro

I'm puzzled by the reviews and published specs for the Palm Centro. All of them that I have seen show that voice dialing is not available on the Centro. However, I do have a voice dialing app that came installed on my Verizon Centro. I don't know if it makes a difference but I do have the latest firmware (Centro 1.03-VZW) installed.

I haven't given the voice dial a comprehensive test yet, however the things I haved asked it to do, it has done well, including opening apps and searching my contact list for a particular name.
The nonexistent voice dial works very well. I have opened apps with it, searched the contact list to bring up a specific contact, and used it to call a specific person. All functions worked very well.

Palm Centro Activesync with Exchange 2007 does not pull mail sub-folders

Hello! We finally have setup a new Exchange 2007 server and have migrated my mailbox to it. I have a Palm Centro with Sprint and I have configured it for EAS. My Calendar and Contacts are sync'ing fine but none of my mail is coming down to the Centro. In my Exchange mailbox, I have organized sub-folders and I have rules to drop messages into appropriate sub-folder. Nothing is left in the "Inbox" except for messages which require client side rules. I have created corresponding sub-folders in my Centro (those sub-folders which are important to me to sync to my Centro). But still cannot pull down messages into them. What can I do to successfully sync mailbox sub-folders into my Centro.

One iPhone user, who we have migrated to the new...

Ring AND Vibrate

I know this maybe stupid, but does this phone have a ring AND vibrate function?
Yes it does. From the phone screen go to options, sound pref, Vibrate, and then choose either always or vibrate then ring.

Communication Event Log???

My Nokia phones have a feature called the communication event log that lists all calls, both incoming and outgoing, as well as text messages and data transfers. This log is seperate from the call history or text history, so deleting an entry from either list would not affect the communication event log. I am wondering if there is such a feature on the Centro???

not charging.

My wall charger works fine, always has. My car chargers works fine and it too always has. Every once in a while my charger cable for my computer will not work. This is unfortunate because i use my phone constantly. My car is at my house with my car charger in it and my wall charger is at my house. I am in another city and am relying on my cable for my computer to charge my phone. I have tried restarting my computer (that worked last time) and i tried my friend's computer and it wont work either... Any advice short of buying a new cable?

I love my phone and wouldn't trade it for the world. I just need this problem fixed.

Incoming SMS color in chat window.

I have the palm centro for verizon and for some reason i cant seem to change the text color for the incoming SMS in my chat window. I can change the color of the label for my text but the incoming text is always a light purple. It might be a simple fix but i cant seem to find how to change it. Any help?
In the CHAT window tap the top left corner of the screen (where it says CHAT) then tap options then preferences then tap the CHAT tab and change the bottom drop down on the page from NAME ONLY to NAME AND MESSAGE and click ok.
