    Does have a qwerty keyboard, but also is touchscreen. It's snappy, it's small, and it's a deal. See Amazon for $40 a phone new.

    I own a palm pixi plus, and it was my main phone for some time. It is small, reception was good enough, and although small, keyboard was decent, which allowed me to type with one hand (with just thumb).. Wifi works perfect..

    Weakness is in the volume of ringer and strength of vibration. I often missed calls, or didn't know I had a call for hours, because I was not able to feel the vibration inside my pocket (or from a holster, either..)

    For now, I have move to Blackberry 8530.. Not a touchscreen, but does the job, and also comes with WiFi.. Blackberys do have much stronger vibration, and louder ringtones.. I may go back to pixi plus, because it still is a decent phone, and I bought it as "new", not "used"...

    If you want to buy a "new" touchscreen phone for pageplus, Palm pixi plus maybe your only option, since other "new" phones will be in three digits without subsidies.. Only reason pixi plus is so cheap is that Verizon is clearing them out, for one reason or the other..

    Maybe you should post your budget for good phone suggestions?

    I bought a Droid X for $100. It needed a charger and a SD card but I already had them. Deals are out there but you have to be patient and look.

    No. A bad esn on Verizon is a bad esn on PP as well.

    If you have patience and the right tools, you can just follow a video like this.

    I took apart my son's droid and the hardest part was getting the sticker out of the phone without ruining it.

    FWIW, if you are shopping VZ handsets on ebay and run across a good deal on a "Bad ESN" phone, request the ESN from the seller and check it with PP. I have purchased several VZ phones that have been listed as "Bad ESN" and when checked they were clean and activated without a problem. I just purchased a Droid X that way......I believe many sellers list as such because they just don't want to put forth the effort to actually check an ESN.


    I recently tested the "don't mention a PP Dealer by name" rule here on PP Hofo......trust me, it is still in effect - got me a 7 day ban.

    You can use mp3gain

    http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/

    to increase the ringtones. Trivial. Sync your ringtones to the computer via USB drive. Use

    mp3gain -g 20 *

    to up all ringtones by 20dB. Then sync the ringtones back. I wear hearing aids and I up-ed the
    ringtones by 30dB - no problem hearing them.

    I have had several vzw phones and by far the best imho is the HTC Incredible. It has been replaced by a newer model so the original isn't as expensive as when new. It has everything you wanted, relatively large screen, WiFi, has good volume and vigration is strong enough. I used to switch phones about every 5 months, the Incredible I have used for over a year.
