Playing around with the new Sprint/Samsung Instinct- initially the phone seemed pretty slick.  After a few days I started to realize all of the limitations and lack of configurability < sad face>  Lets do a bit of comparison vs my previous 3 year old phone, the Palm treo 750p

Instinct Cons

  • Can not receive calls when streaming TV or browsing the internet. WTF
  • Limited apps, no MSN messenger client, no skype etc.
  • No place to store stylus
  • Can’t customize themes or buttons
  • Streaming Tv is very choppy
  • Calendar is ‘not worthy’ will not sync with outlook
