The browser sucks on this thing. But it could be a good phone for someone who doesn't use the Internet on their phone, or a damn good $30 PDA if you don't use the phone features. And you can install Rogue and single player Scrabble on it, which Android won't accept.
If you have thin fingers, it's a good PagePlus candidate if you don't need data, and just want to talk/text. Verizon device, no need to hack anything, just *228 after activating on PP.
Wouldn't call it a "damn good" PDA considering you can get Android 4.0 smartphones like HTC One V for $50 on deals, and use Wi-Fi to do some major PDA'ing.

Pretty useless phone in today's world IMO.
Hard to carry, hard to type, unable to surf on internet, little too big to make calls etc etc
Might be a good paperweight though.....

I have the "newer" version of this phone that doesn't have the antenna nub on top. It served it's purpose back in the day but now it's sitting in the closet for the past 4 years. If you have use for this brick you can have it for free. I live in the Los Angeles area. I can't believe Sears is asking $30 for it.

I have 2 old Treos sitting in my closet (a Treo 600 and a Treo 650). They were awesome for their time, and how I miss the single-player, ad-free Scrabble game, which I can only dream of having on my ultra-modern Android phone!

Miss my old Treo! But not enough to buy a new one

This thing is what started my phone obsession (the PalmOS version, though).
Not that it has anything to do with the Treo (ahhh memories...), but most of those 100,000 are not native apps. They are android apps basically running in an emulator. That means they doesn't generally run as well or have the same function as apps designed for the OS.
