New phones - a blessing or a curse?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Mid-Willamette

I have to say, I loved my Palm Centro cell phone. It slept by my bed, it went everywhere with me.  Needless to say, when I used the bathroom in the Phoenix airport & it disappeared, I had really lost a friend. 

Enter the Palm Pre.  Yes, the insurance would have gotten me a new Centro, but would it have been the same?  So I now have this great phone that can perform rings around my old one, but I still feel handicapped.  I mean, I like it, but the love isn't there yet.  I can almost send emails from it (waiting for a password) but at least I can receive the emails & filter out the junk.  It is saving me time when I sit down in front of my laptop - I'm excited about that!

So as I learn to love my new friend, I still need to figure out how to import my Outlook Contacts & sync the calendar.  If anyone knows how to do this, I would be greatly appreciative of the tips.  Until then, me & "Bree the Pre" (as my daughter calls my phone), will be getting to know each other better & slowly but surely building up a good working relationship.  I'm sure we'll soon be inseparable as well. :)

Kristin: I'm holding onto my Palm Centro. Looked at the PRE today. I picked it up by accident when looking at a new phone for my wife-decidedly un-Palmish, but perhaps that's a good thing. Best of luck with yours.

Thanks Matt.  I really think that once I get to know it better, I will really like it.  A better time to switch phones would have been when I'm not so busy so I could have spent more time trying to understand it though.  Hang on to your Centro for now at least.  I sure miss mine... :)

I'm looking at new phones this week . . , and am doing the big debate - iphone, blackberry - maybe I should look at palm products too?  Love my palm pda . . . so many decisions and options!

Kristin - I'm sorry I can't help I just bought a Blackberry after having a Palm Treo for several years. Now I'm trying to learn everything the Blackberry does.
