    Glad I lost my Treo...

    Advertisement



    Hey Folks,
    I've been lurking here for a few weeks now. About three weeks ago I somehow lost my Treo. After heading over to the Sprint store to see about a replacement, I was reminded about just how much I disliked that thing. So I sucked up the $200 early termination fee, walked down to T-Mobile, and got myself a Pearl -- without having done ANY research on it. That's very unlike me. Usually I don't buy anything without reading each and every review on Amazon and elsewhere. But when I saw the little white Pearl on the counter, it looked perfect.

    Anyway. It's been a few weeks now and I can't even tell you how much nicer a device the Pearl is compared to the Treo. Yeah, I really liked the little keyboard, but SureType is really slick and I'm totally used to it now. I think I can type faster with it than I did on my Treo, oddly enough.

    For those who haven't had the pleasure of owning a Treo (I had the 700p), you don't know how good we have it. The Treo crashed at least once a day -- sometimes five times a day. Using its bluetooth for even the simplest tasks like connecting to a headset was nearly impossible, and when it was possible, it was wholely unreliable. It was slow, clunky, heavy and big. And Palm's support of the product was stunningly bad. They released an OS upgrade about a month ago that bricked most of the Treos it got installed on.

    I guess this post was a tad pointless, but I like to introduce myself when I join a new community like this. So, hi.

    I certainly am. In fact I'm sitting in a Mcmenamins having dinner.

    I'm still pretty much a newbie myself - but welcome... But I'll warn you - this site is seriously addictive!! Almost as bad as the Pearl itself.

    Getting a BB for the first time is like looking at your BB and thinking, "Where have you been all my life?"

    I am one of those who moved from a Treo to the Pearl. I started off with the 650....had it for a year and then moved to the 750 when it came out. I did like the 750 a lot though it had all the probles a Windows based system has. But I fell in love with the Pearl and I now have not just one but two of them. I think its the best cell phone I have ever owned!!!!

    I sold the last Treo I had on ebay about 2 weeks ago, I was keeping it around so I had a smartphone in case my BB took a dump on me and also praying that my wife would eventually move from a regular cell to it but it doesn't matter what I say or do, she refuses to leave a regular cell since she never uses e-mail or txt messaging.

    I'll get her on a BB soon enough, I'm sure as soon as she see's a pink one then that might start pushing her in the right direction.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ The closest to pink you will get is the red Pearl from AT&T.

    Well since we're stuck on VZW due to the family plan that we have and the expensive cost of getting out of it to goto another carrier, she can get a cover for it in pink. She's REAL good at putting designs on phones with beads, crystal's, etc to personalize them.
