Not a bad Pocket PC

I baught it used on eBay Feb 2006, the seller I do not rember who it was. It has been good hand held, it works better tha a Palm I bought new, which I Don't use any more. As it turns out if my Motorola phone dies Verizon will activate the phone in the PDA. The only thing I don't like is it didn't come with the cradel, but oh well. Thanks, Mike E.

Pro: Excellent phone, can do any task you throw at it from playing mp3s, watching videos, downloading images on the internet, talking to your friends, you can even do remote desktop connections with this thing, its amazing. Con: Battery life isnt the greatest unless you have an AC adapter, not a USB attachment. Battery lasts quite a while but discharges quickly when the front light is left on or talking excessively. Using experience: 8 months I give this 10/10, I bought it and wont regret it at all. You can go on MSN, ICQ, Google, Gmail, you name it, this thing can do it, thumbs up from me. This phone is also made for the Sprint and Verizon wireless network but you can activate it on any CDMA network as long as the phone is unlocked. Less

As others have written, the inability to use this like a regular phone is irritating (headset or speakerphone only). Being able to surf is nice, but, only practical if you turn off pictures and still really slow. My device also had a strange bug where it would turn on and the lower left menu would pop up repeatadly, which is really annoying. I've switched to a smaller, normal phone and am much much happier.

I've had mine several years. Pro: It takes a beating! From dropping it to spilling coffee on it, it still works. Great to have so much in one item. The handwriting recognition is great, it really works. Con: The mp3 player is not loud enough, I can still hear people talking around me, even with the volume all the way up. Battery life is terrible. Phone never actually rings, it keeps re-setting itself for no ringer. It also keeps turning itself on, and when I'm listening to music, keeps beeping. The sound quality on the speaker phone is awful, and there's no way I'm going to ba able to get the headphone plugged in in time for a phone call. I hate that you have to use the headphones or speaker phone, you can't just use it like a regular phone. It may have some cool features but I would not buy it again. Less

Toshiba 2032 with Sprint PCS plan was my first PDA phone and it's been 6 months since I started using it. I bought this item because I thought I need a multiple-purpose pocket PC. I am mostly satisfied with this PPC and sometimes I realize other usabilities with the PPC but there are of course things I wish to have. As an experienced user of PPC now, I am waiting for a PPC phone with at least 300Mhz speed, 128M memory, bluetooth, megapixel camera, and maybe finger-print recognition. With that kind of PPC phone in the market, I think it would be silly to carry phone, organizer, camera, iPod, and DVD player, seperately because you can do more with the single PPC. I also dare to predict that PPC or different form of the kind will replace our purse and its content (credit card, identification, and money) in our (near or far) future. I gave 3 stars mainly because there are currently several better PPCs than 2032. So here I write pros and cons of the 2032 PPC to help your decision. Pros. 1. With $78, you can buy 1GB SD card which can be inserted to the PPC. I mainly use the 1GB disk space to store word or pdf documents, photos, and music files (I currently saved 12 CDs and about 100 documents to the card). 2. Graphics and Interface with stylus are no doubt great. As a computer geek for last 20 years, I hate to sit in front of computer to orgainize my thought and study things in my free time. (Maybe it's time to retire) Pocket PC solved the problem. Watching TV or listening music, I can now use PPC to organize ideas or read books in my sofa or bed. 2. Since PPC can store pdf and word files, as I mentioned, PPC can be literally a eBook. Using ActiveSync, I can easily download books and documents from desktop, and read them anywhere anytime. 3. Wireless web browsing or emailing are great too. I can read news, AOL emails, or google anywhere with the PPC. If you want to frequently surf internet, don't forget to sign up Sprint vision service. In first month, I didn't do that and ended up with $300 bill. It turned out every web browsing costs $.50-$1.00 per minute without Vision serivice ($15/month). I requested discount and signed up the service. (Sprint kindly gave me the discount) 4. Playing music with Windows media is higher quality than I thought. It's not exactly iPod because of PPC's weight but I cannot say any difference in quality of music while it's portable enough. 5. Speaker phone is loud and clear. With simple holder, it can be used as a car phone . Although it;s not safe to dial numbers with PPC while driving, receiving a call is no problem. 6. As a developer, I can easily develop your own software with Microsoft .NET Visual Studio. Sometimes, it takes 30 minutes to make a simple software!! Cons. 1. In my opionion, one of weakest point with this PPC is that you cannot use Bluetooth technology. Thus, you cannot have (cool) wireless headset nor wireless data communication with printers/computers. Especially, I think wireless headset is indispensible because it is not convenient to talk with wired headset. (I don't want to use speaker phone for all calls) Also I cannot use the PPC phone as a modem to my laptop. Some suggested you can buy Toshiba Bluetooth SDIO card to enable it. Don't even think about it. I was a fool to actually try it. Whenever PPC goes power-save mode, the Bluetooth SDIO card makes PPC dead. I have to hard-reboot and lose all your installed software. In addition, I couldn't make the bluetooth card wotk with the PPC. 2. I think PPC needs at least 64M memory to run various software without bumpiness. This PPC has 32M memory. Because of this, I have to kill some applications by hand in order to run a heavy-computation application. I thought about upgrading but I don't think there is a safe way to do that. 3. I thought I could use this PPC as portable movie player too. But playing video with Windows Media is not up to my expectation. There is no smoothness at all between actions. I think it's something to do with memory size or CPU speed. With analogy, I guess this PPC may not be good for full-graphic games. (I am not sure because I didn't try any game) 4. Battery life is too short. I can talk via phone only for 1 hour. And for some reason, there is no way of soft battery exchange. Only way to extend battery life is to buy a battery pack (4 AA batteries) and recharge PPC battery with the pack. (bulky!) 5. Quality of connection (wireless phone and internet) is not that good comparing cingular. (But we all hate crazy customer service gang at Cingular, don't we) 6. No thumb keyboard. I don't want to type with full keyboard looking at small screen of PPC. But it's not easy to type with touch-screen keyboard and stylus either. So attachable thumb keyboard would be useful. 7. No camera. I think adding camera to PPC makes it more complete portable PPC. I wouldn't mind quality of picture from PPC. But from time to time, you may want to keep something into picture. Less

I'm so tired of carrying so many things - laptop, cell, pager, pda, pocketbook. I was looking to consolidate. Having a text messaging/PDA/Cell all in one neat little package is VERY convenient. True, Sprint needs to take up their service a notch. True, battery life is little less than desired (I just leave it plugged in when I'm in the car, which is alot and at my desk) PDA is great. For the convenience of carrying one item, instead of three, it's worth it's weight in gold. Less
