Cases are so 90's

Gekko @ 8/26/2008 9:58:07 AM # Q

it's almost 2009.

1. the Centro is $99. at this price, they are disposable.
2. this case, as do most, must be removed in order to remove the battery cover and access the microSD card and/or battery. major PIA especially for those of us who rotate a backup card daily.
3. belt clip? please people, PLEASE STOP wearing your phone on your belt. this practice should be banned along with push-to-talk - both punishable by eight months in prison and twelve strokes of the cane.

Disposable? Say the Centro dies and you are 12-13 months into your 2year contract and don't have extended warranty coverage from your carrier. What do you do then? And even if you DO, like I'm finding out now w/ Verizon, they cannot always guarantee an exact repalcement of what you've got (in my case, a 755p).

Renew your contract early and/or negotiate with the carriers? Your mileage may vary greatly from carrier to carrier and from rep to rep.

Buy a new Centro unlocked/full retail? $300 for a new one, unless you can luck out and get a mint condition one for your carrier of choice from a reliable seller on E-Bay etc.


I wouldn't trust the Centro's so-called "built in screen protector" any more than I'd trust any other marketing hoopla from Palm. At minimum, I'll keep a real screen protector on my device and keep it in some kind of slim pouch-style case. Now, if these suckers were priced like a Z22 and offered at a totally unsubsidized $99, then I'd agree with your stance.

Insurance (from Sprint, anyway) is about $7 bucks a month. Free repair or replacement for a wide variety of problems, $50 if you lose it or a car runs over it. I carry my Treo around bare - easy access to battery, stylus, flash card, etc AND it fits in my cradle (another think Gekko doesn't like). If my screen or case were to develop a scratch so bad it merited replacement, I'd just pay $50 to make it go away, not $300 or $600. $7/month insurance is $84/year - not bad for the peace of mind.

If you are stuck with AT&T or Verizon, I don't know what their insurance plans offer, I only know Sprint has handled things pretty well over the years for all of my phones.


Paying my annual PDA update tax to Palm since 1997.
