This handy Palm Pilot Z22 has been a great help for keeping my schedule and contacts organized.  I first started using it about four years ago and it has proven to be very useful.  It is small, light weight and durable.  It has a color screen which is nice compared to some older models that were just black and white.  There are a bunch of different programs that you can run on the Z22 for games and other calendaring options.  The features that I use most often are the calendar, contacts and tasks.  It is a very handy way of storing all my contacts info, so I have them with me at all times.  The calendar is nice because you can set up reminders for yourself of family members and friend's birthdays and other important dates.  I have a little beeping alarm go off on birthdays of all my siblings...and I have not forgotten one since.  One other feature on the calendar that is helpful is that you can color code your events so you can easily distinguish between things for work, family, etc.  I would recommend this to anyone as a great way to get and stay organized.  Only problem I have faced with this item is if you have it in a cold place the battery will go dead, so don't leave it in the car overnight if the tempertures drop in the evening.

I had a Sony Clio prior to this, but Sony stopped making PDAs.  I loved the Sony, but was afraid it would die eventually after four years and I would lose all my stored data.  So I tried the Palm Z22 for its low price tag and ease of use.  Good things: small, light, less clunky that the Sony; great price for the functionality; easy to learn; the new graffiti is more like regular writingLess than good things: You have to tap the screen pretty vigorously to get it to register, and the letter "l" on mine just doesn't work, so I have to switch to the keyboard.  And the cae options aren't great.  Also, the screen is smaller than the Sony, so you can't see enough on one screen to be able to check a phone number, for example, without going into the full entry.

I couldn't live without this PDA.

By 

from Saratoga Springs, UT

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

I got this pda for Christmas last year from my husband.  It is one of the best gifts I've ever got because I use it daily.  I am a Mom of 5 kids and am very busy.  It keeps me going in the right direction day after day.  I even bought one for my daughter this year for Christmas since its on her list.  I am very happy with the performance and I am not tech savy, nor do I have time to learn how to figure out a bunch of commands.  Its simple and it works and does the job.  Great buy, great price.

my lifesaver - it remembers everything for me

By 

from Albany, NY

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

This little device saves me. I have no memory, so it remembers for me. I have a bunch of add on pograms for it, like shopping lists, games and calendars. I love it and highly recommend it to someone who might not even need to sync it with the computer.

Good basic PDA if you don't use it as alarm clock.

By 

from Cambridge, MA

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

The clean look of the Z22 goes with my MacBook. I am glad to have this PDA. I just do not rely on it for its alarm function for any of my appointments and reminders. Even the loudest setting is too quiet for me unless I have it in sight. I have been a Palm user since 1998 and have good amount of experience with PDAs. The price is reasonable (I bought it for much lower than the retail price at eBay) so I am not complaining too much about the quiet alarm function I mentioned earlier. I know I will not be too upset if I lose the PDA or damage it. It is not a pain to replace it. As long as I have all my data sync to my computer.

Need to get organized? Get the Palm z22!

By 

from Baldwin, NY

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

The Palm z22 is a good product.  I do not go anywhere without it and would be lost if I did.  It manages my contacts, to-do lists, my appointments, my family's appointments.  Anything I need to remember is contained in this Palm which is just slightly larger than my cell phone.  The only drawback is that it needs some external light source, which should have been included, such as a brighter backlight or illumination.

get way to get organized without spending a lot of money

By 

from Bronx, NY

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

This was my first attempt at stepping away from the paper calendar and I didn't want to spend alot of money because I wasn't sure I would use it.  The Palm Z22 was just what I needed.  It's small and fits in the inside pocket of my purse.  I always have it when someone wants to schedule a mtg.  It stores my schedule, calendar and things to do list.  Easy to use.  Love it.

Convienent little Tech Wonder

By 

from North Hollywood, CA

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

I have enjoyed using my Palm Z22 handheld Personal Data Assistant (PDA).  It's got a well lighted screen and big, easy to read writing.  The size is small so it can easily fit in your pocket or purse.  I use it to store addresses, email accounts, credit card info, passwords, and it easily synch with my computer so that I can assess the same info on my laptop as well as the Palm PDA.

It did take a bit to learn to use the writing recognition tool (you write on the screen and the text is stored so that you do not need a keyboard, although you can access it that way too.)  At first I could not get it to recognize some letters and numbers, but then I figured out that some letters have to be written a certain way, for example, tou have to cross a T first which is contrary to the way we all learned, other wise it thinks you are making a lower case L.  So it does take just a bit of getting used to.

One complaint is the relatively short battery life between charges. But that is a complaint about all electronics.

Keep up-to-date without breaking the bank.

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Palm Z22 Smartphone:

The Z22 is great for people who want to keep their life organized without spending a lot of money.  It's easy to sync up with your PC so any notes, memos, appointments you make on either one can be transferred to the other. 

It does not connect to the internet so if you want that ability you need to choose another model.

The main drawback I've found in using it for the last 2 years is that the screen is very hard to read outside in the sunshine.
