    I've got a Treo 650 now and will be switching over to SERO shortly and picking up a new phone. I really like the idea of a smart phone, but I find my self in areas of low coverage more than I'd like (have a bar, try to make a phone call, and signal magically drops sort of thing).

    I'm looking at going with either the 755p or the Mogul. Anyone know how the reception and call quality compare among the 650, 755p, and Mogul? I haven't heard great things about the Mogul as a phone and I've heard the 755p is slightly better as a phone than the 650 is but I don't know that I've actually talked with anyone who's actually used more than one of the three for any length of time.

    I guess my other alternative is to go with a phone with analog coverage and make due with the phone tools and Google apps, but I'd really rather stick with an all-in-one device.

    **EDIT** I'm not concerned too much about the OS differences, just the reception and call quality. I like the Palm OS better and the Mogul form factor better, so the deciding factor really is the reception and call quality.

    Well I would have to say after having both IMO the palm is better on call quality and the mogul is better on the reception lol. Sorry

    Huh, well... thanks. I appreciate the feedback. Reception is probably a little bigger deal so that is helpful.

    Having three smart/pda phones here are what my findings are. I added stability as IMHO it should be a factor in purchasing a device.

    Reception: Mogul, Q, & 700wx

    Sound Quality: Q, 700wx, & Mogul

    Stability: 700wx, Mogul, Q

    Budney, thanks for the info, I would agree stability is important. Your lists are in descending from best to worst for each category?

    I agree on the Mogul parts. The reception is tops, but sound quality is so-so

    Run don't walk from the Q.
    Everyone I know returned it for a palm or bb device. The 700w had problems but the wx is an amazing piece of hardware.

    Thanks for all the feedback. At this point I'm leaning toward the Mogul. Anyone have any warnings against it other than the so-so call quality?

    Stability = BlackBerry!

    NOTHING running the Palm or Windows OS can even come close to the BlackBerry when it comes to stability.

    That said, the BlackBerry has other limitations (lack of many multimedia functions and expensive 3rd party software) that often make it unattractive. And then there is the $40/mo data plan. ;)

    Correct!

    No other warnings about the Mogul. Just take your time with understanding the WM OS, it is a lot different then the Palm OS. :)
