"handy but expensive and problematic"3.0 starson by s2yay
Pros: convenient; easy to operate
Cons: 1-yr warranty not adequate, expensive
Summary: About one month after my warranty expired, I got orange spots on my Treo 600. I visited the Sprint store on Preston Road in Plano, Texas and they said it was bad pixels and that it had been identified as a recurrent problem with the Treo 600 - but not a flaw. And since my warranty had expired and I did not have insurance, I was out of luck. Too bad for me. They said I could call Sprint and I might be able to get a $75 credit toward a new phone. My Treo still works, but the bad pixels cover part of the screen and seem to be worsening. Another issue is the battery. It is not holding a charge well after 15 months of use. You can replace the battery, but if you check the directions on how to do this, you will find that they are fraught with difficulties since the battery is built-in and not designed to be replaced. I know other people with Treos who have not had these problems, but they have owned theirs for less than a year. I liked my Treo very much up until now, but now I am not sure whether I will buy another or even recommend the Treo. I have read stories about people having to invoke their insurance and then getting refurbished Treo's as replacements that also end out having problems. It's troubling.
