Voice dialing.

Does it offer voice dialing? My A900 does and it works great.

Stereo Bluetooth?

Phone scoop has this device marked as having AVRC and A2DP bluetooth. I've been playing with it for three days now and have had no luck getting the S9 stereo headset to play the music. Has anyone had any success with this yet?

Does the Treo 650, I mean Centro have have Sprint Navigation support?

Does anyone know if the Centro has turn-by-turn support? I will not go back to Treo's until they offer full GPS support.

Battery life.

Maybe I use too many things on it; but still, the battery life blows! Is the 755p's battery better?

Compatible 3rd party stuff?

Just trying to find out what games and programs are compatible with the Centro. Even Sprint's download site doesn't seem to have anything. Any good websites with programs and such I could load onto this? I'm interested in emulation and that sort of fun stuff. Please point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Cleaning the screen

I was wondering what is the recommended way to clean the Palm touchscreen. I know it kind of sounds silly but this is my first one and I don't want to cause damage. TIA for any help.

i've had this phone for about a week now and found a few bugs:

- after people call, the labels on their contact information changes such as XXX-XXX-XXXX (M) for mobile, the (M) changes to (w) for work for all numbers listed for that person, which then i have to change it back. i sync with my outlook contacts instead of palm desktop.

- when connecting to sprint power vision, it never works on the first try. i have to cancel the first attempt and then reconnect.

- the micro sd card occasionally looses its physically connection making the phone think that it's been removed.

there really isn't anything palm can do about the 3rd item, but has anyone else experienced these problems?

Voice clarity....

The reviews that mentioned the voice clarity/compression issues were spot on. The Centro took a big step backwards in this all-important category..

Voice clarity is noticeably low, pitch range sounds flattened. Good chance mine will be returned b/c of this issue unfortunately. โ˜น๏ธ

I just saw it....andd

The Palm rep was just in and shows it to us, it is pretty amazing. Here is my breakdown

STILL doesn support turn by turn directions and you have to take the battery cover off to access the SD slot, and the keyboard is TINNNY.

Played with it this morning

Went in to the store this morning to turn in a drug test (pre employment ๐Ÿ˜ ) and they whipped out this phone. I wasn't too impressed. It's too small IMO, with not a big enough screen to really run any OS. The keyboard was kinda cheap and no soft touch or anything on the keys to seem to make it easy to type. The keys were WAY too small too for someone with big fingers like me. I didn't get to turn it on or anything because I had to get going to class.
I think this phone is going to appeal to a lot of young females who are looking for something "Cute" and they will probably be happy with it, but I have a feeling the tech saavy crowd will not.

Just ordered my Centro on SERO

I went ahead and signed up for a SERO plan and ordered a Centro. Despite the negative comments I decided to give it a go. This will be my first PDA/Smartphone so I am pretty excited. I will post a review once I have had time to use it. ๐Ÿ™‚

well i got my hands on one of these phones today and got to play around with it. the phone does overall feel cheap, ESPECIALLY the stylus. i wouldnt go as far as ficher price, but still feels cheap. lol. as far as useability, while the software is essentially the same, it appears to be slightly easier to use. perhaps "more fluid operation" would be the appropriate phrase. and while the keyboard is VERY tiny, lol, its also not as bad for texting, by my third text i was able to quickly type out a message withouit error. but if your a HEAVY texter or emailer, be prepared for hand cramps. my fingers are of average size, but i was unable to hold the phone comfortably to type those messages. that said, its overall an average smart phone that will ...

Touch screen and streaming bluetooth

Apparently it does have a touch screen and also has Bluetooth profile to stream music to a headset. So I don't see why people say it's a piece of junk. Looks like it does more then the 755p which I own and can't play music to my BT headset.
