How do you like your treo pro?

I'm in the market for a new phone and im getting as far away from HTC as I can (well atleast HTC BRANDED phones)

My only 2 choices are really the Treo Pro or the Palm Pre but since im on sero it looks like im stuck with the treo pro (not saying thats a bad thing)


So far out of all the phones Ive ever had in my life my treo was the only one that didnt suck after 6 months.

I know if someone posted in the mogul forum when I had one everyone would say to stay away so how do you guys like your treo pro? What are the cons you have come across in the time you have had it?


Ive come to find that all I want is a fast phone with fast internet browsing. Thats about it!

And lastly...How much ram does it have? I hear 256 but then I hear 128 and so on.

Thanks!

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

I've had an HTC Mogul and didn't like it due to the keyboard design. Sold it after only 1month. Then had a Palm 755p and loved it overall, but not much 'wow' or 'fun' factor with that phone. So I just recently picked up a Treo Pro. I have said many times, that I think I may have found the perfect phone. Ok, maybe not perfect, but I love all it can do and the overall design. I like the design of the Treo with the keyboard that doesn't slide out. It's a one handed phone easily, and I also like having a stylus. When looking at the Pre, I was concerned about that, especially on those small links you often find on web pages.

As far as internet speed, it's much better than my 755p. I can't really share much experience to other phones, but I'm pleased overall. Other browsers like Opera and Skyfire work great too!

One add-on I have that I don't think I'd like the phone half as much without is SPB Mobile Shell 3. It makes the phone very 'finger' friendly and easier to navigate.

So do I like mine...Yes, love it!

Good luck with your choice.

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

I've been using the Treo Pro for 5+ months now and I am a happy camper. The keyboard took a little getting used to, However like anything else, Once you use it awhile it becomes routine. I found the stock browser too sluggish for my taste and first tried Skyfire and I am now using Opera.
I think the combination of performance and battery life are what really makes the phone work for me, I use it for light business use, Daily E-mail and texting and then I use Golf GPS for fun. I guess the bottom line is that the phone works really well for me.
I have been reading with interest about Custom ROMs, I have never used one, Wouldn't even know how honestly, However I will be interested to see how it works out when the new ROM's become available for this phone, It sounds like it is coming very soon. I have friends at work who have the Touch Pro/Diamond and they swear by their custom ROM's and they swear at their battery life with their phones.
Anyway, All in all a good solid phone, If I had it to do over again I would make the same choice and go with the Treo Pro.

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

Love it!!! Feel, design, battery life, everything. It was great to get back to Treo after a year or so with the Mogul.

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

I've only had my Treo Pro for about 2 weeks now but I love it. Over the course of the last 2 years I've had: Mogul, Q9c, and HTC Touch. I like my treo better than all of them. It's a pretty fast phone I agree PIE is a little slow but you can get other browsers to suit your needs. Mobile shell is a godsend makes things so much easier! I get a good 12 or so hours out of a full charge. About 1hr of talk time, maybe a solid 30min to an 1hr playing on web, youtube, tv things like that. Quite a few txts and my email updates every hour I think. The only really annoying thing I can say about it is it is a magnet for smudges and fingerprints other than that so far its great.

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

Love my Treo Pro. A few tweaks and it's easily one of the best phones i've owned. I'm currently using a Palm Pre but honestly I miss my TP. Battery life is great.

Re: How do you like your treo pro?

OK, I will throw in my opinion. I got my wife a Treo Pro from Craigslist to replace her Centro, she wanted better web browsing and that was the best option that would work on her $30 SERO plan. She now wants to go back to her Centro. The typical WM problems, poor battery life, random freeze ups, and general WM quirkiness has her ready to throw it against the wall. I put SPB Mobile Shell on it and that made it more friendly but now she has issues with it randomly turning off the data connection and randomly shutting down. I am hoping the unlocker comes out soon since I think WM 6.5 would make this a great phone.

With all those problems I would have Sprint check the phone out. It may have its quirks, but nothing that bad.
