Summary I bought a new Pixi Plus the first day they were available (1/25/10) as I have been anticipating a Web OS Palm to come out for Verizon. I previously had a Centro that was very hard for me to part with as I had become so accustomed to features like the calendar, task list, alarm, texting, etc. Finally, I stepped up and made the change. So far, I'm glad I did.
As I pointed out in the "cons," the fact that the phone has NO removable memory was closer than I can describe to being a deal-breaker. Not that using a USB cord is a pain to transfer media, but once you don't have that luxury- you notice! (8GB memory is included internally & is plenty for my needs, but may not be for others). I have not experienced any lagging as described by some Sprint Pixi users, but I am already impatient in waiting for the Flash Player compatibility issue to be resolved (which will reportedly be soon) even though I have only been a Pixi Plus owner for three days. Some people have complained about the keyboard size but it is absolutely perfect for my petite hands (and similar to the Centro's).
Otherwise, the phone really is a GEM for the Palm OS faithful. Sure, it is a big change but it is well worth exploring.
My boyfriend has Sprint, but aslo had a Centro while I did (2+ years!) and we could not picture having other phones. Because of the success I've had with my Pixi Plus, he is venturing to replace his Centro tomorrow with a Pixi as well. THAT says something.
Pros Call quality is very good (can't say that about iPhone). Touch screen is easy and fun. Love that you just start typing out a word or name and Pixi instantly sends you to Google, Google Maps, Wikipedia, Twitter or the app you need.
Cons Some nickpicks, but nothing that dissuaded me from buying. Keys are small, but I've adatpted (makes this maybe good choice for women) For Verizon customers, doesn't sync with backup assistant - you have to download to Outlook then sync.
Summary The Palms apparently aren't selling well, but it's a mystery to me. With 2-year contract this phone only cost me $30 and it's everything I needed - great alternative to IPhone (better in my opinion). I'm having a lot of fun with the Pixi!
Cons Not compatible With Palm Os apps
web brower sucks
uses a LOT of data!
Summary After having palm products since 2005 and then having my first palm phone the palm centro I thought I need an updated phone so I got the palm pixi plus on verizon with the 150mb that I used for my centro Now that I have the phone I can tell you I cant go on the web that much Like I used to do with my palm centro it uses data for every thing even the bulit in help app I cant use my favorite mobile brower blazer because its palm os not webos If you have been a palm Os user for many years stick with your old palm os phone because this phone is nothing like palm os at all!
Pros I like the set up, the general features
Cons it shuts it self off up to 10 times per day
it takes 5 to 7 minutes to reboot
drops several calls
can't access very many internet sites
Summary I have had a lot of phones but this is by far the worst phone i have ever had, i wish i would have never gotten it and the store says i have to wait until next march to upgrade it or pay over $200 for a new one.
Pros The product is easy to use, wifi capable and has good apps. I like the Pandora app which allows me to listen to all types of music relatively commercial free. It's easy to upload pictures to Facebook.
Cons Battery life was an issue...see below. AT&T service. There is sometimes a need to reboot in order to get a signal.
Summary Some have complained about the low battery life. I was having a problem until I realized that it was always hunting for a signal (AT&T drawback) which would run the battery down. In non-signal areas I switch to airplane mode which stops the searching.
