    Oalvarez,

    We get your gripe man. Sprint is the worst, Treo is circa 1984, etc. No need to bait every thread with your anger.

    Anyhow -

    well.. guys I have to admit that 700wx is not that bad at all. I have less probles with it then I had with my 700p.

    I'm starting to fall for my 700wx

    ok, i will admit, i was a bit harsh. sprint does not suck, it's coverage is great. it just stinks where i live in the los angeles county. really too bad, seriously.

    clunky device though, new ones are passing it by. everyone read the cbs marketwatch new stories? i'm not the one making this stuff up. it's ok to think outside of the box.

Yesterday it was as high as 1016kbit/sec and never dropped below 400kbit/sec. Today I the highest I've gotten is 341kbit/sec, but most were between 100 -2oo kbit/sec. I don't expect 1016 kbit/sec speeds, but the decrease is bothering me.
    I expect data rates to be lower when all those voice users are chatting.

    Local coverage trumps everything.

    Uninstall/reinstall
    Google the code
    Search MS for the code
    Search Palm for the code
    Get a 700p

    already geared up to deal with the clunky windows mobile interface but the deal breaker for me was the way windows mobile gets sluggish when you got apps running in the background.
    I always love when people say they are going back to the palm os, because windows mobile multi-tasks slowly. How fast does the palm os run backround apps?

    Well, if that is what you bought it for and you did not get it........

    The problem isn't the speed of the backgroun apps. For the most part, a background app can run grindingly slow and you'll never know it. The problem is the impact background apps have on the speed of FOREGROUND apps.

    If multi-tasking means it takes 5 seconds or more for the phone to respond when you try to take a call, that's a serious issue. If the phone doesn't hang up when you think it did, because it's busy on some "background" task, and your boss overhears a comment you make to your companions, that could be a more than serious issue.

    Based on the comments above, it sounds like Palm / MS need to do a better job of prioritizing foreground / background processes, with a reduction in priority for most background operations, and a major increase in priority for phone processes.

    I don't have a program to measure the speed of background apps, but Chatter and ptunes run fine in the background when I am doing other things. I think the slow multitasking WM5 debate would be a moot point if the processor was a little beefier in the 700wx. I've read posts from users with other WM5 PDA phones that state that theirs multitasks fine due to the faster hardware.

    I guess I'm the only who doesn't have this as an issue.

    I can flat out say my device doesn't "slow down" at all no matter how much I have running (within reason) including Slingbox while streaming.

    At a minimum, I always keep Outlook and IE open, ususally Opera too and maybe my RSS reader.

    besides those two apps, and maybe some other email apps, are there any other apps that run in the background on the Palm OS?

    Also, I run a bunch of apps on my windows mobile device at the same time, and never have much of a slow down. Maybe its a specific app that some people are having problem with.

    I have never had a device that can run pocketplus without EVER having a slow down of some sort. Refresh rate was never quick with it installed. THIS is all changed now.

    The 700wx just does well with multi-tasking and plug-ins. If there is one thing I know how to do... it's how to crash a device. Was I able to do it on the 700wx? YEP! Will I ever work it the way I did to make it crash? NOPE!

    I've already tried two different 700WXs and both had very different screens from each other. One had the ugly yellowish tint and the other had a nice, white screen. Niether had any reception problems though.

    Also, the one with the yellowish tint had poor construction quality. The front half of the body didn't match up evenly with the back half so there was a gap on the back of the antenna where it meets the body. There was also a gap around the volume keys on the back-side.

    Anyone else have a unit where the front half of the shell doesn't quite match up with the second half?
