For all of those that have Sprint - what is the best PDA/Smart phone offered by them you have used? I was looking at the new Treo with Windows Mobile - looks pretty sweet.

Do you know if Sprint offers any phones that accept SIM cards (for international travel)?

Treo, no sims since they aren't GSM, you won't use it anywhere else.

I've enjoyed my Treo 600. I put off upgrading to the 650, not enough features, but the 700s look nice. If I did buy a 700, I'd get the Palm OS version. It has a larger screen and voice memo built in. I've been using the Palm OS for about 8 years and have had no real issues with it. I started with a Palm Vx, then a Kyocera PDA phone (QCP-6035).

Sprint doesn't offer GSM service AFAIK, so they won't have any phones that are GSM (use a SIM).

If you want GSM you'll have to go with Cingular or T-mobile.

Windows mobile 5 is buggy as sh!t. If you can overlook some of the more glaring errors and UI blunders, it's pretty versatile and feature packed. I have the PPC 6700. Sprint is great for CDMA/EVDO areas. Cheap, fast internet is good.
