The Palm Treo 755p sports a more compact design than the 700p and is available in two attractive colors. The Palm smart phone has integrated Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera, EV-DO support, and adds an instant messaging app, Google Maps for Mobile, and direct push technology. It's a good performer too.
The 755p is a bit pricey and feels bulky and heavy compared to other full QWERTY devices. The device still lacks integrated Wi-Fi, and the camera's picture quality was subpar.
Though it's not a major overhaul of the smart phone, the Palm Treo 755p offers a nice collection of enhancements and solid performance to make it an attractive upgrade.

The 755P is a heavy-duty phone/PDA with a superior keyboard. It works very well when used to write emails, send and receive text messages, and as a phone (no small thing when compared to the IPhone!). I am a power Outlook 2003 user, and this device allows me to keep my Calendar function (with extensive notes) and Contacts (including numerous sub directories) on the device itself indefinitely. Lots of memory. It won't fill to capacity no matter how many entries you make, as long as you use a memory card for picture and program storage. Only major shortfalls are no GPS and the limited availability of good extra programs written for this phone and its Palm operating system. The CallBlock 2.0 software, available for about $10, is fantastic for screening phone pests you would prefer to avoid. For more reviews on this model, as well as the Palm 800, 850 and the Palm Pre, go to the Sprint's phone equipment online review section.
The Treo 755p is the ultimate (literally, the last) Treo from Palm, and it's the best. Small, pocketable, useful keyboard, awesome messaging and email capabilities, and a wealth of useful utilities that you can run on it. It works as a capable MP3 player (with a $15 4GB SD card), video player (with the Coreplayer software), game machine (with LittleJohn emulators for every classic game system, from Atari through Nintendo, and with PalmMame to emulate the real arcade machines for hundreds of additional games). There are thousands of freeware and commercial pieces of software available to extend the capabilities of this this amazing phone. Of course, it has a wonderful calendar, memo taking (voice or type away), and handles Word, Excel, PDF, JPEG, and other files with ease. As a phone, it works great, and it has a built in camera and also takes competent camcorder footage. The included web browser is serviceable, although clunky for serious work. It is great for a quick movie lookup at the IMDB or to grab my gmail (if I don't want to use Palm's own email client, also included). I have a GPS unit that works with this and TomTom's Navigator software to provide turn-by-turn mapping, and GoogleMaps is also included.
Of course, they quit making them. Pick one up, find a geek who will hot rod it with software for you, and enjoy it for the next few years. Stay a generation behind the bleeding edge and enjoy the greatest tech on earth (from 2007).
I love this phone, it gets the job done and is easy to text with. I had a Palm 700p and it worked great after having it so long, it never froze or gave me problems but the antenna gave me problems and looked too big.Eventually the bulky thing just fell off, leaving me with a perfectly good phone and no service. So when i saw they had one just like it but instead it was without the antenna and improved interface, i was searching all over ebay for it. If your a big texter, this is good for you, it has a good battery and the only bad thing i can say is con, is that you need an adapter for the micro sd/memory card but other than that, love this phone compared to the instinct i had also. Overall great phone.
I have suffered from Smartphonanecrosy with my Samsung ACE for the last year and a half. Because I am stuck in a two year contract, the only way to change was pay full price for a phone. I was mad at my phone and mad at my provider. I now know the ACE has one of the lowest customer ratings of all Sprint phones. Years ago, my husband gave me a Palm PDA which I really like and which still works handily. So, I thought I would give this Palm Treo a try, especially since it has a bit of an external antenea as connectivity at home is a problem with the ACE and other phones I have tried. Finally, cured. It works like a charm, has the Windows OS, is so intuititive. It does what I want, not what it wants. Needs very little charging, has a very powerful battery and signal, auto shut-off and easy turn-on so that you can talk, throw it in your purse, and easily answer again. The only negative is that the camera is 1.3mg and the pictures are not good at all, BUT, hey, this phone is five years old and used. Want good photos, get a camera.
this phone is great and has many applications , takes great pictures. the size ad weight are good touchscreen great and you can do so much with it. you simply need to take the time to get to know your phone and wontwant to let it go. i look at many others and read decribition and decided that this would be the perfect one for him specially that he uses it for business to very helpful. so far i haven't seen a down side to it only good. A+++++PHONE AND HE LOVES IT...
