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??

Just wondering if it's worth getting now or will verizon have a new palm soon?? Thanks so much

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

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.

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...

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.

Corded headsets

I just upgraded to the Centro and my old 2.5mm headset won't work in the Centro. Does it require a special headset or a special plug?
