Only a true loser will diss the centro.

Why do have to diss palm so much?
Are you that insecure?

I have had the treo 650 for 2 years. I am very happy with it, but want something a little smaller.
The Centro is perfect.
I will buy it for a hundred bucks and sell my treo 650 with the accesories on ebay for $150.00.

So I will have a new phone, smaller and lighter, and make 50 bucks.

I watch movies on my phone.
I listen to music in Stereo.
I use the Bluetooth. with 4 headsets.
I have a call record program to record phone calls & conversations.
Documents to go.

I have internet radio with Mundo. Free, btw.
Camera & Camcorder.
Backup Program on my SD card.
Color coded txt threading.
Wireless syncing with my calendar.

Hot Sync Pictures from media

Last week I got a Centro took some pics and then had a hard time Hot Syncing, so I then Verizon told me to e-mail the pics to my PC then do a hard return.
After, Hot Syncing I have not been able to transfer my pics back to my phone, I wanted one of them as a wallpaper.
Can someone help me?

Thanks for any help out there...

Palm Centro has no voice command

Not too happy. I had a Samsung phone before the Centro and am very much disppointed because there is no voice command in the Centro.

4 Gig Micro SD - NOT

I was very disappointed with my new Centro. It does not accept 4GB card! I went to the store twice to have the 4GB replaced, still no luck. So I settled for a 2GB. With the 4GB, the Centro displays "No card is inserted" or something. I even called Sprint Tech support to verify that the Centro indeed is compatible with 4GB micro SD-HC. Tech support said that it does and it is on the specs. Anyone here using a 4GB micro SD? What brand? I bought/returned a Kingston brand 4GB card.

Centro's Documents To Go is only trial???

Hello. I just found out that the DTG on the Centro is only a trial version. When I was reading email from our Exchange server, there was a mail with a PDF attached. When I opened the PDF file, it presented me with "Activate" or "Continue trial version" pop up.

Does anyone have a Car GPS unit that is compatible with Centro?

I recently got the TomTom 720 and could not link it for hands free calling with the Centro. Later found out Centro's Bluetooth is not up to par with most GPS units. Anybody have a solution for this? Nuvi's or TomTom's that work? Appreciate any help.

Are we supposed to be impressed?

I'm a big Palm OS fan, but how can anyone be impressed with seriously outdated technology? I have a Treo and like it a lot, but any modern expectations fall short.

hot sync issues

Has anyone else had this issue? My phone seems to be suck on hotsync. I'll have to pull the battery out for a few minutes, and it'll be just fine, but I've also had a customer with the same issue. Is there a glitch? or some keyboard shortcut that's bein hit to make it do so? Any help would be great, thanks

Ringtones: What file types does this CENTRO accept?

I have a Sprint LG Rumor. And...
its not all that.
I really want to switch to the Centro.
But before that, I wanted to know what kinds of file types does this phone allow you to have as ringtones?

Whether its mmf?
or mp3? I'd like to know before I can actually go ahead and switch phones.

Yes, ringtones DO affect on how I feel about phones. Im very picky. I want to set different ringers for different people you know?

On my LG Rumor, I am only allowed to set ringers from Videos i record. So I did it the old fashioned way. Recorded clips from youtube, holding my phone up and everything. It sucks.
But thats all I can do until I find a decent phone where I can make clips of MP3's from my computer and send them to my phone.
