| | Considering the Treo600 to 7250 switch ...
Please Login to Remove!
and I'm hesitating at the brink.
I am a long-time Treo user (300 -> 600) on Sprint for the past 4 years. My major use for the Treo is the Email (SnapperMail) and webbrowsing (sports scores for son, some forum reading, etc). I am probably a serious poweruser on that level. Interestingly, though I am a professional and *should* be using the Palm scheduling function on the Treo I really do not, so that is not a big deal.
The major Palm-centric use I have is Vindigo (very useful for going into Manhattan).
Basically all is well....except my Phone reception is profoundly terrible. Everyone complains ...dropouts, inconsistent ringing. It's bad enough that I have begun to consider carrying a regular cell phone ...that I know I will constantly forget to carry.
I am the only one in the family on Sprint, everyone else is on Verizon, so my husband suggested I think about moving to Verizon and switching to the 7250. (His ulterior motive is that he hates dealing with Sprint CS . )
I know a fair number of you have made this switch. I'm not sure how many of you have done it to gain improved *phone* service, but that is truly my motivation. I would definitely invest in the best BT headset available. I suppose I would do this with the hopes that the trade-off in function (which may be small) would be minor compared to having a phone that actually works.
Any input, advice would be appreciated. BTW, I use a Mac, but to be honest my sync needs are modest.
