    Wow, my old Palm device, a Samsung SPH-i500, isn't even on the buyback list. I didn't want to sell it anyway. I really loved that phone, for 7 long years. Because I just used a slightly pointed index fingernail as a stylus, I've actually had a color touch screen app phone for years.

    The sad part is that a side effect of the data migration process bricked my old phone. A newer version of Palm Desktop was required for the migration, when I synced my old phone with that new Palm Desktop, it bricked the phone, even taking the battery out for a few days didn't fix it. It's sad to see an old beloved friend pass on.

    Sprint never cared for the i500 and EOL'd it rather quick when they couldn't come to terms with Samsung for the i550. The treo became Sprint's darling unfortunately.

    You could've just done one last sync with your old version of PD and then just exported a csv file over to google and called it a day.

    I guess it's clear, in retrospect, that I should have simply left the device alone instead of trying to sync it with PD 6. I was.... curious... I'm going to try to sweet talk the guys at the Sprint store into doing some extra special reset magic.

    It's a shame about Sprint and the i5XX. My spouse got a Treo 650 at the same time, and I always felt that my device was clearly superior, with it's compact size, clamshell design, and real Graffiti area.

    we all knew we had the superior device. That i550 could've taken me clear to webOS/android or at least straight to the Centro. The real abandonment came when they updated their sms system and left the i500 hanging so we had no clue who was texting us.

    So the pinhole hard reset doesn't do the trick to unbrick? pinhole, phone button then hit up. Is it just completely dead?

    pre pda phone; Palm 3x and Vx. My Palm Professional was sold for the IIIxe which got sold for my Vx which remained as my last PDA before combining it with a phone with the Kyo 6035.
    Crogs! It's been a while. I totally agree with you ... the Samsung i500 was the best PalmOS phone ever! I have missed it so much, but I had to switch to Verizon. The Sprint service is just not good enough where I live.

    Yeah, I'm caught between webOS and Android, and it's coming down to hardware for the win so I've got a Pixi at the moment. No more phones out there with cult status like the i500 (though the Pixi could do that since it's the odd duck of capacitive touchscreens). Had to reminisce with all the talk and popped over to pdaphonehome. There's those few old i500 members that seems to throw in a post here and there. Think that whole website is a bit on the dead side. Jack of all trades sites are losing out to the OS specific ones.

    Nothing wrong with Verizon if it's what works. And they get the better webOS phones, at least until June or whenever Palm brings a 2nd gen phone to the table.

    I have a 755P and a Treo 600 still around. And a Sony Clie which I use as an alarm clock and a Garmin iQue. Need to clean house one day.

    Heh, my i500 DID take me all the way to WebOS.

    Alas yes. Hold power, pinhole, release power on Palm logo, no joy. "Memory is full, HotSYnc backup file is corrupt, or TelOpen is called too many times" but the real highlight is "Reset or otherwise, device may not function normally"

    Although I dearly loved that phone, I never did like the way it looked. The Pre I love in every way. I see it as a spiritual descendent of PalmOS. It looks and works differently, but to me it carries the Palm spirit forward.

    You might check out the app called "Bible" from lifechurch.tv in the app catalog, has several versions including the NIV and The Message. Doesn't install the whole Bible on your phone, it links to an online source. But it seems pretty responsive without too much of a lag.

    Seems like a non functioning audio jack would not be very good if you are using it as an MP3 player...

    Thanks for the tip, Jeff. Does it allow highlighting, notes and bookmarks?

    i still have my centro. it's just being used as a spare battery charger. i keep trying to give it to one of my brothers, but they don't care about texting even, and are fine with a plain old flip it open and make a call type phone.

    still have my palm III, kyocera 6135, kyocera 7135 (came with tetris!!), treo 650, treo 755p (which my gf is using), and a centro. gotta love the palm os!
  15. #75  
    Yes.
    I still have a Centro and a Treo650.
    I still use the Centro because I have some app. Like SmartLists it is a very good relational dBase and a Planetarium and others. I miss the details in calendar, like the categories as well in contacts.

    Yupper, still got my 700p and centro...... Hopeing the Pre will eventually get to the level my centro is currently at as far a functionality. It's getting there...
    Palm M100 => Treo 700P => Palm Centro => Palm Pre Plus

    HandSpring Treo 90, Palm1 Treo 650, and Palm Centro

    The Centro has been renewed as a bedside clock/alarm/audiobook reader/mp3 player- and in a pinch, a back-up phone.

    The 650 does much the same thing in my home office/studio in the basement.

    The HandSpring Treo 90 is in the drawer....


    and then there are the phones.... so, many, many phones, starting with a Moto Bag phone...

    Yes,
    Still have my 755p, I love that phone, expect for the fact that about twice a year and get a replacement due to the fact the Audio Jack always fails. Today is day 30 of my trial Pre + from Verizon. If the update does not make it out today, I'm taking this back on firing up my 755P again. The Pre +'s down fall for me is the Key Board and the double typing (lettering) that always happens...no matter how many different ways I've tried to type, this always happens..very frustrating during email's.

    Sorry Palm---I was hoping for much better.

    PS
    Thank you! to all the Homebrew folks and Pre Central people for making my Pre an almost perfect phone--Outstanding!!
