I thought this was a great deal to upgrade without having to extend my contract with AT&T. I was concerned about compatibility issues without it being pre-loaded with AT&T's software but have had no issues. It doesnt come with a sim card and you are going to need a UMTS sim card though for the best data compatibility. My local AT&T store gave me a new one for no charge but they could cost around $20. Phone came with a home charger, car charger, stereo headset, and USB cable in the box which is rare these days. First impressions of the phone are positive. I really like the touch screen interface which you don't get on the other phones I was looking at (BlackJack II and Motorola Q Global). This phone also plays videos from sites like YouTube natively and my wife's BlackJack II does not.

When I sold my iphone I looked for something that I could use with a slingbox. I use this phone on the 3G at&t network to stream video, works very well even when driving around in the back of a car. The OS took a week or so to get usd to, as well as the keyboard. The speaker on this phone is super loud, very good for music and using speakerphone. Overall I was very impressed. The phone feels very solid and grips to your hand well, even came with a screem protector in the box.

Very Surprised

by Chad on 5/11/2008

I used Windows Mobile previously on an HTC device and swore to NEVER touch it again as I found it to be the most pathetic excuse for a phone operating system ever. Granted, I'm a BlackBerry fan, but even still, it was that bad. In come the Treo. I bought this as it was a great price and I wanted to try it out. I have to tell you that I am very impressed. Apparently, Palm really heavily modified the OS on this PDA to make it usable. It is truly a one handed device. You just never need to touch the screen, unless you choose to. There are little smart touches, such as not always displaying the on screen keyboard every single time the focus is in a text entry field. BTW, the HTC does this EVERY time, even though the keyboard is slid out (yeah, it's not that smart, but this Palm is!). And in the browser, pressing the down arrow doesn't drop down the list addresses in the address bar (and show the on screen keyboard like HTC does), but rather, just scrolls down. Gee what a concept! On the main screen, if you start typing, the contacts will be searched by both first and last name (unlike HTC). If no matches are found, it shows the phone number. I'm in South Florida on AT&T and they seem to have decent UMTS coverage around here, so I just lock it on that instead of letting it switch back and forth between UMTS and EDGE. I've had no coverage issues and no dropped calls yet. I don't know if this unlocked one is any better than the AT&T hacked one, but I can tell you that it is an outstanding device. WinMo itself (there is version 6 on here) is nice and the device responds fairly quickly. Ok all this good stuff, there is one HUGE drawback. The battery is AWFUL. In 12 hours, the phone is about 50% with moderate email use and little phone use. If you're going to be on hour long calls, you'll definitely need to keep it plugged in. I have a Treo 680 and it's not much better than this one either. Ironically, my old CDMA 650 was stellar. I wouldn't pay $600 for this device, but from buy, it's a great value. Pop in your sim and go.

Product Overview

One device that does it all. The Palm® Treo™ 750 smartphone goes where you go. It combines a world GSM phone, email, broadband wireless3, and Windows Mobile® 6—all with world-renowned Palm ease. It’s slim and sleek but still features a full QWERTY keyboard, large colour touchscreen, and 5-way navigator for one-handed use. It also offers multimedia features such as a 1.3 megapixel camera and Windows Media® player for streaming music and video.

Enjoy exclusive Palm enhancements on the Windows Mobile® platform.

Palm wants to save you steps and valuable time. Dial by name, access contact information, even search the web right from the Today screen. You can also dial by photo! Add unique ringtones, photos, or videos to your contacts so you know instantly who’s calling. Manage your call all from one screen—with centralized caller ID, speakerphone, conference calling, and call-swap controls. If someone calls when you’re busy, tap “ignore with text” to send the call to voicemail and fire off a quick, pre-set “can’t talk now” SMS. All this is just the beginning.

Windows Mobile® 6 Professional includes a robust Calendar application that shows your free/busy time on the agenda view, lets you view meeting attendees, and reply to or forward meeting requests right from your smartphone. Enhanced email support includes search functionality, making it easy to locate inbox items simply by typing a few letters. And email responses are faster with handy single-key shortcuts including “r” for reply and “a” to reply all1.
