    Here's what I know for certain: When a Cingular brand Treo 650 is retrieving data on the internet, and the device is placed next to a desktop computer, the desktop computer makes a lot of static noise and the monitor starts flickering. When you place the Cingular Treo 650 away from the desktop computer and monitor, everything is normal again. The weird thing is that this same problem does not occur with a Sprint Treo 650, only with the Cingular brand.

    In every case I've used it, when there was a time difference, the app was correct.

    It happens whenever I flash a cingular phone pass my tv. That gave me the creeps at first because I didn't know what caused it. I'm just glad that I don't get that with my sprint phone.

    Does Flight Status work from the SD card? I tried this but got an error message...or maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks, CC.

    Never mind my previous post. Flight Status does in fact work from the SD card. I got a weird message earlier, but now it works.
