Verizon XV6700

 

Boo. Hiss. Verizon's XV6700 could have been the best PDA/phone on the market today, with a great balance of small size, robust features, and decent call quality. Unfortunately, Verizon's decision to cripple the gadget's Wi-Fi abilities should send...

Excellent keyboard. Good battery life

Poor speakerphone. Poor Wi-Fi/EV-DO integration. Can't be dialed with one hand

Verizon's decision to cripple the Wi-Fi and the absence of a modem plan sour this otherwise attractive, powerful Pocket PC phone.

Verizon XV6700 - Pocket PC Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Who said Verizon has boring phones? Since the Fall of 2005 they've added an impressive array of feature and PDA phones to their lineup, along with some serious expansion of their high speed 3G EVDO data network. The UT Starcom XV6700, released in...

EVDO speed makes this the perfect data device along with Verizon's strong coverage in metro areas. Fantastic keyboard! Blue backlighting makes it easy to type in dim locations and bests the Sprint PPC-6700. Very compact, albeit not thin. Attractive and...

MiniSD rather than SD slot on a Pocket PC phone is a surprise-- if you've invested in SD cards for your prior Pocket PCs, you won't be able to use them with the XV6700. The keyboard is excellent but you won't be able to use it unless you slide it out...

Messaging does a great job with POP, IMAP and Exchange email and it can check mail on a schedule if you like. WiFi is great for those not in an EVDO area and for those who don't wish to spend the money on a data plan. Bluetooth range and reliability...

UTStarcom XV6700 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Bottom line is that I don't ever want to replace this phone. I've had it for over 2 years and used it as my address book, mini-laptop on the go, alarm clock and appointment reminder. The 6700 does everything but the dishes. Aside from the above...

Easy to use, one-touch voice dial Easy synch to laptop to update calendar, data files & contacts Allows use of personal pics & MP3s for wallpaper and ring tones, as well as individual caller ID Wi-fi capable Contacts limited only by SD card memory

Original battery didn't perform as well as advertised (replaced it with an after market extended life battery). Call reception is weaker than some other phones I've had. Speaker volume is a bit too low, even at the highest setting

UTStarcom XV6700 (Verizon Wireless)

 

After reading reviews, I was a bit hesitant. However, for what this can be had for used, its nice. The keyboard light times out after 10 secs, NOT long enough - there's a hack to fix this tho. The keyboard, although big in appearance is cumbersome and...

limited keyboard, poor backlight option, navigation design flaws

UTStarcom XV6700 (Verizon Wireless)

 

This is one solid Pocket PC phone. Internet is great, performance of 3rd party loaded programs was good, HOWEVER the battery life is just terrible. I found that after only 5 minutes of surfing the web, I would get a "low battery warning"! I also had to...

solid Pocket PC experience

very crappy phone

UTStarcom XV6700 (Verizon Wireless)

 

I've had this for 8 months and am going to replace it because of its unreliability. The PC part is fine and it synchronizes with Outlook on my desktop without a hitch. But the telephone is too annoying for me to continue using. Problem 1. About once a...

good pc, good sync with outlook

phone ineffective, resets needed too often

It does work like a PDA

UTStarcom XV6700 Pocket PC/PDA

 

I had this pocket pc/cell phone for two years and used it with Bluegrass Cellular wireless phone service. It's a great gadget for people on the move, especially those who are business oriented. The only thing I saw lacking was the inability of...

This PDA is the biggest electronic gadget disappointment of my life. Our relationship started off rocky. The gentlemen who set up my service in the verizon store had no idea what he was doing and I had to wait in the store for 90 minutes while he told...

not a single one
