    It Sucks
    I hate this phone. The keyboard is too small. Lot's of typos and it is very slow. My Treo 650 was better. At least the Treo 650 would automatically resend a failed text message. The Centro does not. I can't tell you how many times that a message failed until I looked at the phone a long time later. This is a TERRIBLE phone. Do not waste your money.

    Great Phone
    I had a Samsung blackjack. It was a good phone but windows mobile is-windows! After awhile the phone would freeze. I would have to reboot it. I picked the centro because I was familiar with palm os and knew it was stable. It is also much faster than the samsung. I don't need push email and the like but i do text and msg and this phone makes it easy!

    I recently got the palm centro from Verizon and all I have to say is WOOOOW!!!!The Qwerty keyboard may be small,but so what!I enjoy the camera/camcorder,text messaging and everything else!My friend and I were going to purchase the new iphones,but since we were unable to upgrade our phonesuntil 2009,we both agreed to switch carriers and get a new phone-the palm centro.

    Long time PDA fan
    I have owned a Treo 650 for the 2 1/2 yrs prior. Have had my Centro since March. I love the apps. The storage it comes with is a huge plus but you can also get a micro SD card and have even more storage for all your pics and videos. I have no trouble with the smaller keyboard, just had to get use to how to hold it in my hand/hands while typing. It's too small for 2 hands but when you need to use the keyboard, 2 comes in handy. The battery life is ok. I just know to charge it every night and it has no problem lasting through the day. I love having my calendar and my memos with me at all times. I would give the Palm Centro a 5 out of 5.

    Great PHONE!!!!!!
    Been on the fence abt the Centro & finally picked one up & have not looked back. The Centro has replaced the Moto Q9C in my daily phone arsenal. I carry it alongside an IPhone & amazingly, the Centro MORE than holds its' own. I think Palm is on the right track with the Centro.
