What does Barely allows the handsfree mean?

Just returned the Motorola Q phone which worked very well with the bluetooth inmy car, but the batter life on that phone doesn't last enough to be worth keeping. Anyway returned it for a Palm® Treo™ 700w (Verizon Wireless) and all features work except SMS messages. The following problems I have found are

1. I noticed was when I get a phone call the caller I.D. uses the previous number called instead of the actual number calling.

2. The antenna/signal strength display does not show the strength. it only shows a antenna, so am not able to tell what my signal strength is until I look at my phone.

Phone model: Palm® Treo™ 700w (Verizon wireless)
Car model: '07 525i
[x] ability to make/receive calls
[x] phone book automatically synches to car
[x] dial by name (without verbal training of system)
[x] calling name display (using adddress book)
[ ] ability to send/receive SMS - from the car?

[x] Caller I.D. shows previous caller I.D.

Hope this helps.
