    Thinking of trading in Curve for Treo...pros & cons?

    Advertisement



    I don't want email 24/7. I want to login and check email when I want ...and not see it when I don't want to. I want to see my entire inbox, not just what is new....i want to be able to see that email my client sent me a year ago thats still in my yahoo inbox.

    Would a treo accomplish these things? Also, if you feel like I would not be satisfied w/ a treo please share your thoughts.

    I'm new to this and have never had a bberry or a treo or anything like them.

    I came from a treo 750. I'm not going back.
    Treos aren't BAD, I just don't like Windows Mobile, and Plam OS is just.. not my taste either.

    EDIT: Actually I lied, I didn't come from the Treo 750. I had one in the past, still not going back.

    The treo isn't too bad, just not my cup of tea. I know my way around bb too well and too stubborn to switch. I think I used the treo for 2 weeks then have rarely touched it since then. I do like the streaming media and video recording tho.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I mean this politely, but r u NUTS... ;-)

    I was a dediacted Treo user for 10 yrs and I'll nvr go back. They are flat out buggy on either Palm or WM comparatively... U can customize email the way u want it on a BB - wifi will soon be prevalent - the email is reliable and the company is actively developing and improving its consumer products.

    Do what works 4 u but I'd consider it a step backwards

    You can download the icon for the email client you are using and you can also save emails to a folder on the bb if you wan tto be able to go back a year from now. Shoot, I dont even save emails for a year on my computer. After a few months, if I will still need it I print it and save it.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Your last sentence:

    "I've never had a bb or treo or anything like them"
    explains it all....

    You have never had a bb....once you go bb
    you will never want anything else.

    I had a 750 and could not get rid of it fast enough, dropped calls, difficult to use as a phone.

    I think an intervention might be in order. SET THE TREO DOWN, KEEPING YOUR HANDS IN PLAIN SIGHT, STEP AWAY. This is for your own good. Friends don't let friends buy 750 Treo's.

    By far the Curve is your best choice!

    Had the Treo 650 and had the Treo 750. While I liked the Treo 750 I still found it to be big, thick and heavy. The curve is not so big, thin, and light weight. I have not done it but I believe you can change your email settings to leave the mail on your phone if you want to, that is the way it is with my corporate BB 8700. You could also use the web browser to view your mail with most email accounts. Works GREAT with my Yahoo! account. The Tre 750 is nice but there is no way I would go back. I did pick one up on eBay for a grat deal, fiddled with is side by side with my Curve, and then listed the Treo on eBay.

    It depends upon your personal needs, if you want the 750, try it. you have 30 days to see if it suits your needs

    working in at&t data support I handle alot of treo calls, they all seem to revolve around the same thing, can't sync right. device not detected by computer, keeps on freezing, cannot connect to ANYTHING internet wise, drops calls, corrupt files..I could go on ebut you see my point...calls mostly referred to with blackberry ''whats the url for my BIS account?'' other then that ahh pretty much blackberry ''just works'' for people and if their are any issues most people figure it out for themselves or is fixed by a batt pull.

    You've come into a BLACKBERRY FORUM asking this? If you want an unbiased opinion, you'll need to go elsewhere with such a query.

    See my screen name? Enough said. Actually, to be specific, three 650's and one 680 (with Palm OS), all suffered from unexplained freezes that tech support could not fix. BTW, because of this problem (which Palm corporate denied existed), there was a class-action law suit against Palm for selling devices that were not fit for consumer use. Don't know what became of it. Buyer beware.
