    Alright, so my employer supplies my cell phone. This means that my phone is free and I get a plan with all the bells and whistles. :) However, the two hard and fast rules are that we are with Sprint :anonymous: and I am required to get a WinMo-based phone :mad::help::bananadead::rain::rant::sick::smash:

    I currently have a Pam 700wx on WinMo 5. It's about the worst smartphone you can get. It's not even a not-smart phone. It's a damn mentally stupid phone.

    Given my options, it looks like I'm saddled with an HTC or a Treo Pro when it comes around to upgrades, which I'm told might be soon. Any opinions from the gallery?

    I used to have the T-Mobile (HTC) Wing, which had funky errors every now and then. It was also a bit slow. Barely used it before I got hired here.

    How often do you have to restart/pull out the battery? Any probs with bluetooth? Might be hard to answer, but is speed any better on this one? Do you find you phone jumping through menus during a call because of your ear being pressed against it?

    I never have a problem pushing buttons when i'm on the phone. I restart the phone about once every 3 days or so just to do it. Hardly ever have message/email errors. Syncing to the PC is fast and easy.

    I've never used blue tooth so I'm sorry can't help you there. But I would say it works just fine, since everthing else does. I've used the "beam" feature a lot, sending ringtones to my friends and whatnot.
