Smart Phone

By
Real Estate Agent with Associate Broker, Momentum Realty

I currently use a Treo 650 from Verizon as my PDA and ekey.  I am modestly happy with this; I love the solution, but the phone is really quirky. My husband (not a Realtor) uses a Verizon 700 and says that it is very quirky, too (but with a Windows operating system).  I am not inclinded to exchange one issue for another (I subscribe to the 'devil you know' philosophy), but I feel like there might be better options.  I just don't want to spend $300 to find out I was better off before.

Does anyone have any experience with the Verizon Verizon Wireless XV6700?  Things I am looking for in a new smart phone:

  1. Does not constantly (sproadically) lock up
  2. Does not cause me to miss calls while it runs through a Sync process
  3. Would love immediate emails, versus waiting for a Sync to occur

Please let me know if you have any input or opinions about either phone. I was an early adopter of the Palm Pilot concept, so I am very comfortable with Palm operating system.

If your Treo 650 is doing all that, it has to be a lemon.  I had one and it worked great until the speaker went out and I am now on a Treo 680 which I like less.  I miss the antennna which I grabbed to answer the phone. 

I do not use mine for email and sync it each morning for edata.  I prefer doing that because each morning because all new numbers are put into the computer when I sync.

I have a blackberry. I get automatic emails. I also have verizon.  Originally I was going to get a treo, (abut 3 years ago) but the person who has been upgrading my phones recommended against it with Verizon (at that time).  I think those issues have be resolved.

For those of you who use a Blackberry, can you use the ekey?  Or do you have to carry a separate lockbox key?

There are some other products coming out in the next few months.  For example, they have the Android which is geared for the mobile and wireless junkie.  It is able to handle higher bandwidth operations and is suposed to not be so cranky.
