    Does the taxi only appears in CDMA (Sprint) phones?
    I have a GSM (international) and have never seen or heard of this Taxi.
    It's cool though...plus I have my screen set up to default which is to turn off after 2 mins or something like that...I want to change it but i don't want for my battery to die fast.
    What's the best setting?
    Will I ever get to see the Taxi?
    Does it appear while you'e doing something on the Treo or only when it's on idle.
    Also, do you have to have a specific FW for the Taxi to appear?

    It'd be cool to see it

    I've seen it on my GSM Treo. It can drive by anytime (not only when idle). I was playing Warfare once and it drove by. I've got the original 2.02/1.06-CNG that came on my phone. Apparently this easter egg has been around a while (even pre-Treo).

    The taxi is on almost every Palm OS device, all the way back to OS 1. The egg was added in OS 2.

    Has anyone seen the Ship or Gondola on their Treo 600 yet ? I've noticed that the Taxi kind of putts along at different altitudes across the screen. I saw it kind of float/bounce along the top edge of the screen once. It's always moved right-to-left every time that I've seen it.

    Have not seen the ship or Gondala. A friend that has my old Treo300 said he saw the ship once. The T300 uses OS3.5.X, wonder if it was lost in 5.X?

    Unless you have a defective Treo, in which case the taxi might backfire as it speeds across your screen - no.

    uhhh, so you like, have to, uh, stare at the screen for hours at a time and wait for the taxi to come across the screen?

    One question?

    What do you people do for fun anyway? Straighten picture frames?

    Pfffffffft! I've had the taxi most often appear in either the phone screen (while I'm talking) or while I'm creating/editing an appointment in Agendus. Of course I'll admit I've also seen the taxi on my solitaires screen. Eventually I'm go ing to capture a screen shot as it chugs by!

    Uh, you look at the screen while talking on the phone? I think I have been seated in resturants near you before.

    I saw the taxi once yesterday & once today. Both times I tried taking a screenshot & it does not work while the taxi is visible.

    I'll have you know I use a headset so that I can speak quietly. I don't want the world A) knowing my personal business, B) top secret classified information that I happen to be sharing, or C) how often I see the taxi.

    I still won't give up. My goal is to get a screen shot of that darn taxi!

    I've tried that, it won't let you. The treo doesn't respond while the taxi is on screen. I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this one.

    You are right ExtraOrdinaryJo...the phone buttons basically freezes and you can't do anything while the taxi is passing.

    Hey AC, have you made the easter egg yet?
    you first have to go to pref - select general - and using the stylus, draw a little counterclockwise circle in the lower right corner of the screen.
    If you get it right, a multicolored Easter Egg appears.
    Only then will you have a chance of seeing the taxi (if I'm not mistaken...not sure if you get to see it without making the egg first, but from what I've read it seems not). I saw it a few days after I made the egg appear...oh by the way, I also think you have to leave the egg there (nothing will change...just the egg will be on the bottom corner of the pref's general screen)

    Did you see the pic at the beginning of this thread (I posted again for you)? Redshifted manage to get the rear end of the taxi
