Minus wi-fi, this phone is awesome.
I've had it's CDMA brother, the Treo 700wx. While I like the tandem of Palm and Windows, I hated the slowness of "The Most Reliable network". When I made it back to at&t, after accidentally destroying my Blackjack i607, I went after this phone. You should, too! And if Palm and Windows decide to have another rendezvous, I'll go after that, as well!Design 8/10Features 10/10Performance 10/10
- Unlike other Profesional (Pocket PC) devices, you can set rigers as text, mms, e-mail ringers, and it will NOT play the whole file. I love that!
- Liveable camera. It's no Tilt, but it'll do.
- The Windows Mobile 6 upgrade allows me to use SDHC cards with it. I'm using an 8GB right now!
- Endless programs.
- Not as cartoon looking as Palm's software is.
- The battery life sucks, but what PDA's battery life doesn't suck?
- No Facebook application, like that of the Treo 680 (Come on, MIcrosoft!)

Please keep looking
Wow. Clearly, your other reviewers are on a different page. On paper, this is an awesome phone. In practice, this is one of the most poorly performing piece of technological garbage I have ever owned. I don’t know if it is the Windows Mobile O/S or Palm’s implementation of it but clearly, whoever thought up this combo didn’t understand phones. As a phone, this device fails miserably. The most frustrating thing is that it is intermittent. Sometimes something works, sometimes it doesn’t. Like ringing, you’d think once you set a profile it would keep it. Nope. Although the phone is set to ring, many times it doesn’t. When the phone does ring, sometimes the answer button works, sometimes it doesn’t. And the list goes on and on. Before you think I got a lemon, I know several others (in my company) who experience similar problems.
As a PDA, to do email/calendar/contacts, it works (although the keyboard is very narrow and difficult to use).
NET/NET: for anyone looking for a whiz-bang PDA for personal use, it may suffice (but at over $600, tough to swallow). For anyone looking for a productive business tool, please, please keep looking.

For all who dont like the treo...this device is one of the best winmo devices i have seen in a long time....yes it has flaws but i owned an 8525 and traded it for this one...the lack of wifi is oicked up by the speeds of using it on a 3g net work...when winmo 6 is available for all the att 750's the device will surpass any with very few to compete with it...and as far as verizon goes, their network is very slow and if they were smart they would be like the parent company vodafone and go to gsm to keep up with the times of a real companyDesign 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10

3G works like broadband connection. No dropping calls (Have no idea what other Treo 750 users are talking about)

Could be better
Not bad but could be better. Larger screen and Wifi would make the phone a real winner. It is beyone me why Palm insists on not putting Wifi in their phones.Design 8/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 7/10

It was worth the wait!!!
I love this phone!!!!! Its the best phone Cingular has to offer. I was a little worried at first A; about the price (649.99) and B; about a palm device having a windows os but now I think the move should have been made in previous handsets. Yeah the price still put a lump in my throat but hey... Anyway the features are great. From picture speed dial to voice command this phone has it all. I get an incoming call and the phone says the persons name and calling location (home, cell) I press a button and say media and it asks me what I wanna hear. How cool is that?! All of my email accounts were setup without a hitch and the battery life is alot better than I thought it would be. I like everyone else was a little disappointed about the lack of wi-fi but every minute I play with the phone I am getting over it. As long as the 3G update is released within the next few months everything will be fine. Palm you get a standing ovation on this one GREAT JOB!!!!!!!Design 8/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 8/10

I'm Waiting On It
After looking at the specs I am bailing out of Verizon after 14 years and going with Sprint once this phone is available! The reason why is the 750 is going to have 128 memory which is twice as much as the 700. Why pay $45.00 when Sprint's plan is $15.00? I have had it with Verizon!Design 6/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 6/10Value for money 6/10
