Since you everybody know that I have Treo’s display cracked. I manage my spare time by go to Sprint Repair Center. They told that they cannot repair the display and offer two option that I could get Centro without any charge and no affect on my current contract. Or I could go to other city, like 30 minutes and get my display repair for 2 days as I couldn’t have in my pocket for a while.
Ehh… my action is to take Centro. Red or pink, customer service asked me. I take red one, frankly, I wish there is black one but they don’t have one.
My first hand on Centro and I test it for couple hours after I sync to my laptop. Yes, I did backup what I have on Treo, since it running Palm OS. How fortunately for me, include all software and important information I have. For few minutes I have play around.
My reply…. I HATE IT!
Why? Glad you askâ€¦
Centro’s IM already in there and it sucks because of limited buddy listing. I switch to my favorite Mundu and it didn’t work. So, I found new update Mundu 4.1 which function well on Centro. It allow me to send picture through AIM or Yahoo which is awesome.
I use ChatterEmail which I can get push e-mail like blackberry which is cool. Althought, I’m sad to know I couldn’t see LED flashing to let me know if I have new incoming message. I tried to set as pop-up to show i have new message. No, it show un-function as I couldn’t get in message or either turn it off. Text size doesn’t allow me to custom the way I like to read. The header where e-mail and subject go in the box, it appear none as it make me feel awkward to read like if something is wrong with my eye and brain.
UPDATE: Someone poke my shoulder, there is new ChatterEmail update that fix correct for Centro. I downloaded and it works so well, except the LED signaler that doesn’t flash but instead still LED on until I check it. It will turn off. That little weird but it’s okay for now.
The vibrating signaler is kinda weak when I put Centro in my pocket. Sure, it’s nice to have small device to feel more comfortable among to my hip. Unfortunately, I am miss some incoming message on time. For sake, I’m deaf!
The keyboard are so tiny, and it’s kind difficult for me to typing. The more I typing, it becomes little sore on my tip of thumb between nail and fresh. I guess I probably have to take time to get usually with tiny keyboard.
Centro have built-in 64 MB storage unlike Treo, which it have 128 MB, that’s double different. Of course, it have slot for memory card to add more. Unfortunately, Centro accept only micro-SD instead regular SD. That mean, I couldn’t use my digital camera’s SD to put in Centro and send some picture to friend or family. That’s really sucks.
Gawd! I want my Treo back! I think I’ll come back on Thursday to Sprint Repair Center to see if they have Treo 755p available. I recall one customer SVC staff said they won’t have Treo until 2 days later. So, hopefully, I can get new Treo. Or I could learn to love Centro. *gagging*
