I am a palm addict and I have had the Zire 71, T3, and the T5. I just sold my T5 on ebay and bought a Zire 72. The T5 is a waste of money don't buy it. It is slow, and its just not worth the 399 that someone (not me) would pay for it. I bought it on ebay for 320. The T3 is basically a T5 but a whole lot better. I didn't go back to the T3 which I contiplated because of the screen but I went to the Zire 72 because my cousin had one and it was pretty nice. I would wait till Palm comes out with something with wi-fi and something a little faster. Don't waste your time with the T5 you'll just end up selling it. Hope this helps those wanting to buy one. I read all the reviews and ignored them, don't do what I did. Just wait.

I've had a T5 for about a month now. Switched over from the Pocket PC side of things. Got tired of having my device run out of power and loose all the data and applications I'd installed. So far I've not even come close to running the battery on my T5 down, let alone loosing data. I've had a few goofy things happen, but I attribute all of them to growing pains of moving to a new device and getting it working the way I want.

My biggest complaint so far has been with PalmOne and not with the device itself. It seems like the T5 was released before PalmOne was ready to support it. I've called their support line three times now for various issues, and they are 0 for 3 at this point.

No help answering questions about bluetooth compatability between the T5 and my Motorola v551. In fact, told me something completely wrong and insisted Motorola would have to write the bluetooth driver for the T5. I asked them if they could tell me how to find the MAC address of the bluetooth adapter in the T5. They told me it couldn't be done. Five minutes later, with the help of another techie at work, I'd accomplished what PalmOne assured me was impossible. I guess I have a problem with people telling me what I can't do. I honestly believe the so called support tech didn't even understand what it was I was asking for. I've also had problems with using the quick install and transfer programs to transfer Windows Media Video (WMV) files to the palm. There is a problem that causes the transfer, or installer programs to crash when trying to convert the files to something the Palm understands. Their support person was completely clueless as to what I was trying to do, and didn't even understand that just transfering the file directly to the memory store on the Palm would not help as the palm media player couldn't play it.

As for the T5 itself, I've no real complaints that I've not had about any of the devices I've ever owned.
