Default Bought and returned Treo 700wx, kept 8703e

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a new Treo 700wx and then de-activated my 8703e from Verizon wireless..

After a day, I called verizon wireless and asked them to re-activate my trusty 8703e. The treo is crap...

The treo gets no reception in either my office or my apartment. My 8703e works in both places. Sitting them side by side, the treo has no signal while the BB has 3/5 bars.

The screen on the treo is tiny... and with only 240x240 resolution, everything looks grainy. The keys are tiny as well, it is painful to type anything more than a sentence or two.

And finally, I spent 5 hours trying to get my email account to work and finally give up for the night...
