    Any comments on this phone?

    Can it watch You Tube seamlessly like the iphone through Sprint?
    What about mpeg videos from the net seamlessly?

    Is the Sprint TV package worth it? any chance it gets msnbc?

    yahoo messenger? realtime yahoo mail? gmail?

    Thanks for any help or information!

    It works the same as my Treo 700P did. You Tube looks just fine.

    video to view it like on the iphone?

    Thanks.

    Exactly. It streams to your Treo just as on a PC. Your Centro ought to
    have the required application already installed.

    > what about other sites with short mpeg links?


    Good question. It appears to try to handle some mp4, wmv, and mpeg
    links -- but I haven't had any luck with them.

    Yep, I just point it at the site.

    > what about other sites with short mpeg links?


    I put Kinoma player on it and just about everything goes just fine. The
    "WiFi" realtime web cams sometimes are a bit much for it but most of the
    time they work pretty well too. Traffic cams and such generally are fine
    and the traffic flow looks smooth for the most part (barring grid lock
    (:>) )

    nice. I just ordered the centro through sprint. Will try it out and
    see/

    I heard I will be able to tether as modem under the $15 plan with some
    software.

    Also wondering, will i be able to email using multiple yahoo and gmail
    accounts? Will the device let me manage those email accounts in a
    logical way? Will emails come in fast? push?

    Yahoo messenger? Universal messenger?

    Any way to secure or hide specific aps? Hot key custom aps? These two
    items bothered me about my blackberry 8700.

    I'm switching to sprint from tmo for the faster network, sprint tv and
    a device that can actually play video. The Curve claims it can, but
    not very naturally. Oh, 6pm night option also a major plus. I've never
    used a Palm before so will see how that goes.

    also, I was wondering if when tethered as a modem for a laptop is
    connection good enough to see tv on the laptop? play internet mpeg
    videos on the laptop?

    thanks.

    A lot of the responsibility is on the vendor providing the electronic
    service to make sure they adequately secure it and provide the legal
    disclaimer while entering a pay per use service.

    If you happen to figure out that taking a cardboard box, a paper clip
    and some used bubble gum that you can get Satellite reception and
    watch CNN is that theft?

    BTW, according to Sprint Sales, the Centro is not modem enabled so you
    should not select the modem option.. That's what they told me online.
    Of course that's likely not true.

    *Technically*, yes, you can do this... but in case you're not aware of it, you
    *will* be in violation of your contract with Sprint while doing so, which
    leaves you open to being charged the "casual" rate for data (it's pretty
    high -- some dollars per megabyte) or your contract being cancelled.

    Many people do make occasional usage of tethering and with limited usage
    Sprint doesn't seem to do anything about it; just be sure you know what the
    risks are. Sprint definitely *will* do something if you, e.g., try to use
    your phone to replace a regular ISP and start downloading many hundreds of
    megabytes per month.

    I am not sure what exchange they are using in the country you are in,
    but the charge for casual
    data usage is $00.03 per kilobyte. That translates into 3 cents per
    kilobyte USD, not some dollars. However,
    as the centro is a power vision device, it can use kilobytes at a
    fairly high rate. It is capped though for the
    customer's own protection at $75 max for a month currently, so even
    without a data plan that would be
    the most you would pay regardless of the amount of kilobytes, or
    megabytes used.

    It is correct however that the best way to go is to just pay the
    $39.99 or $49.99 a month for the Phone as Modem
    attachment in place of the $15 unlimited non tethered plan. This way
    if you are using it as a modem for your
    PC you are not viotating any terms of service agreement.

    Nice. That's very fair of them.

    $0.03 per kilobyte is $30/megabyte, which is what was stated ("some dollars
    per megabyte").

    I apologize, I completely misread megabytes as kilobytes in the
    previous post
    I should drink at least one cup of coffee before reading my newsgroups.
    [and possibly have my glasses checked.]

    It does go at a fairly quick clip. If you have a decent signal on
    EVDO you should avg between 400 - 700 kilobits per second.
