PCS Phone palmOne Treo 600 (Sprint)
Great phone - get it from Sprint PCS though, not Verizon


Well, as an early adapter, I guess I should be used to taking it hard. I bought Verizon's PalmOne Treo 600 the first day it came out - over a year after Sprint PCS released it. My plan is 400 anytime minutes, unlimited in-network calling, unlimited nights and weekend, and $5 for Internet access a month. Unless I go over, it should cost me $49.95 a month. I just got my first bill.

$1,641.66.

It turns out that the connection to the Internet doesn't shut off - even if you chose "Disconnect" from the web browser's menu. Even if you turn off the unit. It continues to ping the Internet looking for data every six minutes. Hence my bill show some 1023-minute calls.

Steve in Verizon's data division said they've received a lot of calls on this issue and isn't sure why they even offer the $5 web-only feature, when customers need to get the $49.95/month unlimited data transfer or deal with $1,000-plus monthly bills. When I asked if there was a way to stop the pinging every six minutes, I was told no, "it's a data phone first and a cell phone second."

Interesting, as my friends who have the phone with other carriers have never had this problem. Interesting, as I was never told this when I bought it. All I wanted was a freakin' cell/PDA combo, so I don't have to carry both with me, making me look like I'm sporting a chubby in two pockets at once. With Verizon, the cost for doing so is $44.95 plus your calling plan a month, which for me will come to about $100.

After 58 minutes, I was told my bill should be adjusted within 24 to 48 hours.

Also, on Verizon Wireless's PalmOne Treo 600 Smartphone web page it lists a 5 MB transfer for only $24.95. When I asked the technical rep about that option, he said getting it would still cause a Treo 600 owner's bill to be over $1,000 a month. He said it was up there for use with other phones. He had no answer when I said there are no other phones on that page.

Now, I probably could return the Treo 600 - except I already sold my old phone and Palm on eBay.

Of course, if I could just get a free minute for every time I heard "Oh, that's the new phone. I'm not familiar with it" none of this would be an issue.

Buy the phone from Sprint PCS and don't deal with the problems I had with Verizon Wireless. It is a great product for all the reasons listed in the other reviews.

Poor reception


I have had this phone for 3 months now. Bought it on Amazon.com on Dec 29th 2003. Let me tell you a feature if you are planning to take a family plan using the amazon.com deal. You can still do it with T-Mobile. Buy 2 or 3 phones individually with 3 separate plans (cheapo 19.99 plan). As soon as you get it go to a T-Mobile store near your home/office and fill out a COR (Change of responsiblity) and pool it under one person in the family willing to accept the responsibility for the plan. The process takes about 2-3 days (or just 24hrs). Once you get the confirmation that the phones have been pooled under a family plan (give them your email address and tell them to notify you when it is complete) only then start using the phones. Note: Verify that all phones have been pooled before u start using them. Now send for your rebates for T-Mobile and Amazon. You will get both the rebates since you have a qualifying plan on both. (For Amazon rebate you have to wait for the first bill from TMobile) Let me list the pros first:Large LCD display. Like the faded clock display.
Bluetooth Cool and voice commands actually work (unlike my Motorola V66)
IR (haven't used it yet with laptop) However I have beamed my contacts to other IR enabled phones. SO way cool!!!
Calling Card feature is useful
Joystick for easy navigation.
Jabra bluetooth earpiece seems to work fine most of the time with this phone.
Can download different themes and ringtones
Can associate a picture/ringtone with every caller in your address book (this will eat up your memory fast)Cons:
If you are buying this phone for camera features forget it. It is just "also ran" feature.
I keep on getting "Update clock" randomly on this phone.
Jabra seems to lose connectivity randomly.
Keys take time getting used and stick if pressed at an angle. This locks up the phone.
Address book has too many key clicks.
Smudges easily. Battery life is OK but drains faster with bluetooth.
Cannot switch off increasing ring tone functionality (even though it says so)T-Mobile does not include a car charger with this phone so plan to buy it at amazon and save on shipping if you absolutely want to have it from day 1.

Samsung E715 Phone (T-Mobile)
Great!!!!


The Samsung E715 Phone is the best camera phone out there. My first phone was a Nokia 3650 camera phone and the picture quality was horrible and the phone was big and bulky(at least twice the size of both the sony and the samsung phone). I returned this phone and then bought the Nokia 3650 camera phone. The Nokia 3650 phone is great except for two problems. The first problem is that the phone had no cover and therefore the phone would get scratched. The second problem and probably the most important was the reception was horrible. I only got two bars maximum. The Samsung E715 Phone is a great camera phone because you can zoom in and then zoom out. It is difficult to judge reception because it depends on carrier and number of cell sites in the area, but T-Mobile in Chicago is good to very good. The Samsung E715 has a built in antennae which picks up signal better. The phone can capture an action sequence with multiple shots. The phone also has a flash option which gives light to pictures. The pictures are extremely clear and the because the Samsung E715 Phone is a flip phone the screen will not get scratched. The silver parts on the phone are stainless steel and therefore will not scratch as easily. The only downside is the phone is probably the most expensive camera phone on the market today, but like they say "good things can be found cheap, but great things always cost money."

Motorola V551 Phone (Cingular)
Good...but some flaws


The phone is a real cool phone but there is somethings that are wrong, or could be made better. For one the buttons aren't down far enough, so after a while of opening and closing the phone, you start to get marks on the side of the screen. It has a voice recorder, but it only records for like up to two minutes. The other thing I don't like is when you put a number in the address book, and then add a home phone number and e-mail to the name, it shows up each seperatly, instead of all being grouped together under one name. Also, Unless I just can't figure it out, I don't think you can play voice records on speaker phone. But other than that its a pretty good phone.

Kyocera 2119 Phone The Party Animal (VirginMobile)
Great phone, okay plan.


I picked this phone up originally from Circuit City, for $40. The pay-as-you-go plan appealed to me, and it's hard to find a phone that cheap without signing a 1- or 2-year contract to go with it. Virgin Mobile (the "plan"):
The best part about this plan is that there really isn't a plan at all! When you buy any Virgin Mobile phone, you automatically get $10 of starter airtime. Each minute of talk time costs 25 cents. There are no catches based on the time of day--plus no long-distance or roaming charges! After ten minutes of talk-time, your charge becomes only 10 cents a minute. Text messages are free to receive and 10 cents to send. More time can be purchased with your credit card via phone or internet, or you can purchase a Top-Up card at several vendors which gives you a pin # to enter. In order to keep your phone number active, you must add at least $20 every 90 days. All minutes roll over. Along with great reception, Virgin Mobile offers caller ID and voice mail for no extra charge. Also, setting up your phone is quick and easy and can be done online or over the phone. The Phone itself:
The "Party Animal", as Virgin Mobile calls it, is a Kyocera 2119 phone. It weighs 4.5 oz. and has dimensions of 1.9" x 5.1" x 1.0". The phone is bigger than most, but is easy to handle, easy to hear, and not heavy enough to weigh down a purse or pocket. The phone will remain charged for over 6 days of standby time or 4 hours of talk time. To completely recharge the phone takes approximately 4 hours, though it is easy to charge for portions at a time. The phone does come with a charger and a car-charger can be purchased separately. The backlight is great, and the screen is very easy to read. However, be careful--I've heard it scratches easily, though I have not had a problem. Navigation through the menus is easy, mostly using the up and down arrow keys. The phone will store up to 200 contacts, and for each you can have several phone numbers, an email address, and an address. However, sometimes the buttons stick (especially after changing faceplates), but the phone has substance. Along with all that, the phone is entirely convenient. You can simply switch between a ringer and vibrate mode, adjust the volume or lighting, or turn on the keyguard. Other features include 2 games (a simple version of Pong and another game which involves shooting space ships), a calculator, stop watch, alarm, tip calculator, countdown timer, and all pay-per-use "VirginXtras" such as downloading new ringtones, horoscopes, and MTV/VH1 news. One of the things I like best about this phone is how you can set it to beep at the 50 second point, so you know you can wrap up a conversation if need be. You also are sent a message when your balance is getting low.Overall, this phone is great for standard use. It allows you to determine how much you want to spend, be it for emergences only or for regular chats.
Product features:
No prepaid minutes included. Comes with charger.
Four-way easy to use navigation; backlit five-line, full bit-map display
Contact directory to save names, addresses, and up to 200 numbers
Comes with an extra faceplate, and 2 games
Handy tools include calculator, countdown timer, and a stopwatch

Disappointed T610 owner


I just bought the T610 and have been disapointed so far. The charging circuit in the phone doesn't work properly (never confirms that the battery is fully charged, even after 8+ hours of charging.) But more important, the phone's reception is very poor! I live in the Seattle area. Once in a brief while, I show all 5 bars on the display, but more often it's only 2 or 3, and a weak 2 or 3 at that. My wife bought the Samsung E105 at the same time. The side-by-side comparison is very interesting. Her phone shows 5 bars (and gets great reception) most of the time; we're both on T-Mobile. I bought the T610 primarily because I wanted Bluetooth, but it's not worth it. My recommendation - steer clear of the T610. If you buy it, I think you'll be disappointed too.

Nokia 3595 Phone (T-Mobile)
Very Mediocre Phone


Having lived with the 3595 for several months now, I feel ready to describe it. To start, this is my first cellular. First the good, the buttons, though they look strange, are big enough where it is easy to not mis-dial. The screen is adequate and the phone is lightweight.Now that I've got that out of the way . .. They made this phone with the slipperiest plastic that they could find. There are a few effects from this poor choice. When trying to rest the phone on my shoulder and talk, It invariable shoots out between my neck and ear across the room. There is about a 1" diameter rubber circle on the back of the phone which is supposed to grip, but I never can balance that just right on my shoulder. So your hands will always be tied up using this phone, or you'll have to use the included ear bud. The more damaging effect of the ultra slick casing is that it slips out of pockets very very easily. My first phone happened to do this a store when I sat down, and was subsequently stolen (At Babies R' Us by an employee as it turns out!). You probably should go ahead and by a few of these because you will likely lose one or two. This phone is not without it's bugs either. About once a month the phone stops working (Sometimes in the middle of a conversation) and gives a SIM card error. This requires taking apart the phone (It's real fun trying to pull the super slippery plastic pieces apart) removing the battery, removing the SIM card and reassembling the phone.Also, the buttons are somewhat unresponsive. Dial, will often take a few tries. However, the hang up button is ultra sensitive, so be prepared to hang up on your friends often. The phone is too lightweight, it feels insignificant and cheap. An okay phone if they give it away for free with your plan, other than that AVOID IT!!!

PCS Phone palmOne Treo 600 (Sprint)
A review for the over-40 crowd


The only bad thing about the device for me is that the width of the place that you put to your ear is a bit wide. Not that it's too big, but sometimes I don't get the hole where the sound comes out lined up correctly to my ear...and then you can't hear anything. On other cell phones, I don't seem to miss, I can tell where the sound is coming out easier.Otherwise, I love it. I tried using a PDA before, but never was very religious about it. I'd always forget it...it would run out of batteries. But with this one, since the phone and the PDA are combined into once device and I always carry my phone, I suddenly can't live without my PDA. Perhaps now if I had a second device to carry, it would be different, but it allowed me to become reliant on the PDA for information. And it fits well in my pocket.I love the PCS Business Connection which downloads my mail...though it can be a little tempermental at times. (It might just be an office networking issue rather than a phone issue).Generally...I love it! OK pictures, great keyboard so I don't have to learn those damn shorthand letters.I've compared tons of PDA/phone combinations...and I love this one.

Motorola DC600 Bluetooth Phone Adapter
If you are a Mac user read...


Okay, so I wanted to take my T720 up a notch in terms of capability. Can't afford a new phone, so why not upgrade the old one. I am a mac user and the syncing capability is always nice, so why not make it even easier and have wireless syncing. Wonderful, except, you only get to push cards to the phone and then have the phone accept them. No calendar syncing capability, which I had before through USB. So mac users beware, you get limited bluetooth. If you got a laptop, try and connect through your phone, if you have wireless headset use that (most of the time it works, scratchy though). But get on apple and motorola to make this product more compatible with the full potential of the connection and your computer.
Product features:
No complex phone menus to deal with.
A simple button press on the adapter allows pairing with each Bluetooth device
Allows users to answer/end calls from the Motorola line of Bluetooth Wireless Headset/Speaker/Car Kit products. Offers Motorola Original™ quality and worry free compatibility.

Sony Ericsson T616 Phone - Next Generation (AT&T)
It's not the phone's fault, AT&T Stinks!


I was seduced by AT&T's pitch in the NYC area of tons of minutes and very inexpensive phones. I picked the T616 on its reviews, and the phone was fine, except the reception from AT&T stunk. At my desk, I received no signal, while T-Mobile and Verizon users received full signals. My wife could barely hear me when I supposedly had a full signal. After 3 days, I cancelled the contract, after much hassle from AT&T (Their questions were "Are you sure you are using the phone correctly?" and "I'm sorry you are having reception difficulties, would you like a free leather case?" I switched to T-Mobile and have no problems whatsoever.
Product features:
The T616 features a high-resolution screen with 65,536 colors
Comes with MMS, which allows you to compose your messages using images, sounds and text
Supports the Java and Mophun platforms, making the widest range of mobile games and applications available for you to download
