    Hi everyone,

    I am a newbie to the Treo world, so please excuse my ignorance. I am considering purchasing a Treo 650 through Sprint once it becomes available and I am very unfamiliar with what accessories/software needs to be purchased to utilize the 650 to its maximum potential. Since I am primarily using it for business use, the organizer and email functions will be essential. I will also need to open documents such as Word and Excel. In addition, I would like to be able to listen to MP3's and utilize them as ringers and download wallpaper.

    Based on this information could anyone let me know what additional accessories and/or software I would need (please include pricing if applicable) to accomplish my goals. I would like to have my Treo up and running with everything I need within a few days of purchasing the phone.

    Thanks!

    organizer= datebook or agendus. try them both for a month see which one you like the most. http://www.datebk5.com/ http://www.iambic.com/

    office documents = if all you need to do is open document sent via email, then the treo comes with software to do this. but, if you need to edit, dataviz docs 2 go. http://www.dataviz.com/

    mp3 = pocket tunes. if you register, you will get a free limited version. but it works great if all you want is to listen to mp3. http://www.pocket-tunes.com/

    you will need an sd card to store the mp3, and you will probably want to get a cradle.

    >>> the organizer and email functions will be essential.

    Included, though you need to tell us exactly what email program you are syncing with, and how, in order for us to be more explicit.

    >>> need to open documents such as Word and Excel.

    Docs to Go is included.

    >>> listen to MP3's

    You need to buy PocketTunes.

    >>> utilize them as ringers and download wallpaper.

    You need to buy LightWav.

    >>> additional accessories

    You need a SD card.
    Desk cradle is useful.
    2-in-1 USB charger/sync cable is useful when you're on the road.
    A hard case will better protect when you're travelling.

    Thanks for your helpful responses!

    "Included, though you need to tell us exactly what email program you are syncing with, and how, in order for us to be more explicit."

    I will be using mainly my pop3 email through cox communications which I currently access on my desktop through Outlook. Occasionally, I will need to access my yahoo email account. Is there a way to have the emails fowarded automatically to your Treo or do you have to manually download emails from each account?

    How much is Pocket Tunes and Lightwave?

    Does the Treo come with a desktop cradle or does this need to be purchased seperately? I would think that P1 includes a tool for you to synch with your PC much like I have with my Ipaq.

    I'd suggest getting Snappermail. The 600 ships with a mail program, but Snappermail rocks.

    It probably will come with a sync cable, but not a cradle. You'll be able to do most everything out of the box. However, you might want to consider a new case, auto charger and dock if that's your thing.
