I have heard mixed reviews when it comes to palm smartphones. I have heard that they freeze alot and do not stay connected to bluetooths. i have never owned a smartphone and was considering this phone (755p) or either a blackberry. I havent really heard anything bad about the blackberrys. so any helpful info would be appreciative. thanks 🙂
I have a 700wx now and I am thinking of switching to the 755 as I have some programs I need for my business that apparently run faster and more reliably on Palm OS rather than Windows Mobile.
I do however have some questions and was hoping someone could answer them for me, mainly these are features I use a LOT on my 700wx that I hope the 755 can also do or has something similar to:
1) The Today Screen - I really love this on the 700wx, I know the 755 doesn't have this natively and I have looked around at the 3rd party solutions, but I have yet to find anything close to the 700wx's functionality there (important items being, time & date, battery life, signal strength, number of unread emails, calendar (agenda), tasks and the final item ...

The Palm OS is very familiar to most smartphone users, so a review of the new Treo 755p should focus on any improvements on the Treo 700p.
In comparison to the Treo 700p... Is the screen brighter/whiter? Is the speaker louder/less distorted when playing ringtones or using the speaker phone? Does it handle MIDI files with elegance? Are the system fonts different or more anti-aliased? Is the speaker-phone full or half-duplex? Is there improved handling of the "push enterprise messaging?" How does the smaller SD-Mini card fare compared to the full 4GB SD Card? How does the Calendar look in place of the phone dialer on the home screen? Is it Palm OS 5.4.2 or a greater version? How fast does it recover from a soft reset? Is the rese... (continues)
Using the IM software, works fine with Yahoo but locks up with AIM, you actually have to remove the battery to reboot it. The phone locked up one other time for no apparant reason. The Exchange Activesync lacks the ability to enter the Domain which neither sprint nor my email providor could figure how to fix. I did manage to fix it by placing the domain/username in the login field. Nice phone, feels solid, battery life seems great. they just need to fix the AIM part of the im software. Any questions, ask away!
I went to BestBuy yesterday and I saw a floor model of it. It's small!! It was selling for around $250 with a 2 yr contract. The lady working there told me that they were selling them. Now only if Verizon would be selling it lol. Just thought ppl might want to know.
didn't realize it was such a problem to mention that other phone in somebody elses thread.. well could ya go ahead and consider the fact that I also asked for some comments on the problems in the review of the phone? that'd be great thanks
The battery life on the 680 and 750 is terrible-it looks like this phone is also the "thinner" version. I hope Palm has gone with the battery that is in the 700P and 700WX so business users can have a phone that lasts more than 3 hours. 👀
