…you say ‘cheapskate’, I say ‘frugal’ I was about to return this phone because Verizon wanted a $45 data plan just to activate it; then I read the brilliant comments by Chuck Homic.Opening the package, I saw the ESN/MEID HEX printed on the box. I held down the power button until the PALM light lit up on-screen. It took a while for it to boot up. The phone tried twice to call Verizon and activate itself, to no avail.On another phone, I called the Page Plus Cellular toll-free number and gave them the Pixi’s MEID and the phone number that I wanted ported from my active, prepaid Verizon phone. They gave me a ‘Premier Package’ 6-digit activation code to dial from Pixi, and said that Verizon is usually quick to release your old number and to call back when they have done so.It took about an hour or so that the old cell number stopped ringing the old phone, indicating that it had been ported.In order to dial the activation code on the Pixi, you first press the little phone symbol…

Great Entry Smartphone, Not good for intense users. I bought this Palm Pixi Plus to replace a failing Palm Pre Plus. My biggest complaint about the Pre Plus was its keyboard, it was hard to use, and keys often failed. It was my third Pre, and I still have time on my contract, so even though I want to switch to an Android based phone, I chose to go with this because the price (where as an Android phone would be much more expensive).Positives:So far, my experience with the Palm Pixi Plus has been much better than the Palm Pre Plus. The hardware seems to be built a little better (no sliding moving parts), the keyboard is much easier to use and is responsive (however, my “R” key needs to be pushed a little harder than the others to respond. Even though it “clicks”, it won’t type until you press just a little bit more. Still MUCH better than my Pre.) I like the size of the Pixi better than the Pre as I’m not a fan of having a huge smart phone.I only really use the device to receive e-mail, check social…
