    Their Bag is a flop,

    The Battery is weak (and I hate admiting this)

    The Car charger is largly non-existant

    How about if anyone finds some available accessories, they mention them here so the rest of the world could be so lucky.

    You know if there are so many people waiting for the phone that the aftermarket is just juicy and waiting for the stuff to hit the shelfs. My battery didn't even make it through the day, luckly an home office day. The thought of going out of the house without a car charger is sounding pretty bad.

    I'm wondering if there will be enough displeasure over battery capacity for someone to do something about it. Maybe an add on pack?

    Vent completed, anyone know of any stuff yet?

    How do you do that? (I guess that most likely would be a "no" to your question.)

    Where did you find "conditioning" of the battery?

    LIthium Ion batteries benifit from being charged fror 24 hours, then dishcharged completely before you ever use them.

    cycling is charging completely, and then discharging completely.

    I did the battcycle thing, though unintentionally.

    Left my charger at the office, since with my VisorPhone
    I could go a couple days without a charge.

    Then something went *shptinggg* in the software (I hope)
    and the Treo wouldn't even look for the cell signal (Cingular)
    and by the end of 8 hours, she was DED. Blank. Wiped out.

    I'm back up after hotsync, but Handspring says I must live without
    my 3rd party apps (DateBk4, QuickOffice, PowerJog) (sniff) for
    the week to find out if it was a hardware issue.

    Luckily, the extra charger I ordered last week arrived today.
    I ordered another hotsync cable to be safe, and will grab a
    car charger ASAP.

    The Treo FAQs claim 60 hours on standby, 3-4 weeks with
    wireless mode off. I hope the battcycle thing is why mine died
    so quick. I know finding a signal and/or weak signal can drain
    batteries quicker, but damn! I had the thing turned off most of the time.

    I THINK I have noticed an improvement in the the battery life... I'm not playing with it like I did the first couple of days... but the amount of time it is lasting is a lot longer. It really eats it up while talking that's for sure.

    Part three should be more informitive

    You should sell your unit on E-bay. There are a lot of people who will love this unit.

    To answer the original question... accessory hotline. Try Amazon not only do the have the phone, but accessories as well.

    Damn! Thanks for the tip!

    Amazon at least claims to have stuff Handspring is out of
    (car charger), AND lists stuff Handspring doesn't (belt clip).

    Try this link
    <click>
    or just search www.Amazon.com for Treo

    Weird.

    They don't have a photo of the belt clip, but I ordered one anyway.
    Look for review in a week.

    I saw this link for a nice looking (but a bit expensive) leather case on another Treo discussion board:

    first off, it's almost worth it because of the incredible branding. I keep my treo... in a nutshell BWA-hahaha!

    50 bucks though? I guess that's not all that much more than other cases, but yowsa for me..

    ...also, it holds my Treo 810? Man, they must know something I don't

    Well, I'll get one eventually, they've got a killer feature:

    The 022 is a Holster designed to be worn on either your right or left hand side. Your belt slips through a leather patch on the back that is attached to the Holster at the corners, so it can be worn vertically or sideways, or it can be angled to fit perfectly on your hip.

    I ordered the Nutshell case with the swivel clip so the antena won't jab me in my soft fleshy mid-section.

    I'll post a brief comment on how good it is once it arrives.
