Review - Motorola HS850 Bluetooth

Just a word of caution if you decide to go with the HS850 headset. I picked one up last weekend for $40 at Costco. It paired with my 700p easily enough, and didn't sound too bad on my end. After some pretty heavy usage over the past 5 days I have had mixed feedback about the sound quality. Some people have said they can hear me very well, no problems. Others have complained so much I have removed the headset and continued the call on the phone itself. There does not seem to be any consistency to the quality of the call, nor to any interference. I have used this in my car while driving, from home, from my office, and various other locations. I now question whether each call will be a good one or bad. Also, the earpiece becomes increas...

Looking for Versamail help - sorry, long post.

I just got a 700p. At my office we use Outlook 2003 and have our own on-site email server. It's a MS Exchange server. I have tried to set up email with assistance from VZW CS and Palm CS. The VZW people have been great, but have told me that the Palm CS personnel are more well versed in the nuances of Versamail. My problem with this is that the Palm CS dept rarely has anyone with decent communication skills. I have given them three chances and about ninety minutes of my time. They are about to cost VZW a sale, because I will be returning the Treo if I can't get my email to work.

Based on a conversation with VZW CS it does not sound like Wireless sync is a viable option because I need to keep certain emails in my In-box for very long...

Okay so I do a lot of phone switching, and after trying the Treo 700wx for a good amount of time I can officially say its junk.

Sales people (me being a former one) please let customers know that a majority (a large majority) of programs will not work on the Treo 700wx. Reason being, look at an Ipaq or a PPC 6700, 6800. The first thing that will grab your eye is that larger screen. WELL GUESS WHAT! Most programs are written for that larger screen. Making the Treo 700w/wx useless. Or atleast hard to get software for.

But on to the bread and butter of this post:

I switched now to the Treo 700p and wow!!! The software support is phenomonal.

My personal must have list:

Treo 650 vs 700p (Sprint) - should I upgrade

I currently have a Treo 650 with Sprint and I love the phone as well as the service. I am thinking about maybe upgrading to the 700p. I would sell my 650 and probably end up spending about $200 to upgrade. What are the main differences and do you think it's worth me upgrading? Thanks for the help!

Thinking of getting a Treo 700P...should I?

What about all this "freezing up" and "rebooting" I keep hearing about? Is it really that widespread?

Also, does the 700P support a 2G SD card?

I really want to get this device, but I'm very hesitant after reading so many of the reviews and looking over some of the problems mentioned in this forum...

New to considering a Treo...should I make the jump?

I've been w/Sprint for about 6 years so far and love the service (Customer Service took a little hit when they merged w/Nextel...but still sounds allot better than some of the Verizon reviews I've read!). I've been using a Sanyo MM5600 for the last 2 years and LOVE IT. However, I'm starting to use my phone more for its calendar features and reminders than before and am intrigued by the thought of a Treo--or some other Smart Phone.

I've been looking over user reviews of the Treo 700p and I'm sort of at a loss: some people say it's the greatest phone ever and others say it's horrible. I know this is typical of user reviews, but I have some real concerns:

I've never used Palm OS before...just playing around w/the demo model of the 7...

Treo 700p vs Motorola Q - Decision

I'm considering Treo 700p vs Motorola Q.

I seem to really like the features that both offer. I'm beyond crying over WiFi (buy the mini-sd wifi card). I'm really wondering if there is anything that the other really lacks that should make a consideration difference.

I know the obvious...
- OS palm vs MSFT
- Nice weight, sexy and size difference

I have used Palm devices for years however, I'm willing dump the Palm Tungsten T3 to Motorola's Q (MSFT) if I'll gain something great and I'm not really going to be lose anything vital. I'm tired of having 2 devices RAZR + Palm T3 when I could have it "all-in-one."

On my Palm devices, I really live by the "memo pad, contact list, calendar and task list." Palm seems to have tons of nice o...

E-Mail address

I went in to the phone info on my 700P
it was myphone

but if I email something direct to the phone, it comes back as undeliverable

Is there a way to set up an email address that goes directly to the phone or do I just have to use VersaMail and use one of my other accounts for email??
