    <p>So I guess I'm just wondering if I'm the only who has this problem but when I talk outside for any length of time I sweat all over the phone to the point where I have to wipe it off with my shirt or something. I do have a screen protector, but I wonder if that sweat can seap into the cracks or corners of the screen and potentially harm my beautiful Treo. What do you guys think?</p>

    I sweat like a pig when I am outside. Seem to be fine with my Treo. I lock the touch screen during calls of course.

    I tried volumecare for a while. The volume was ridiculously high. I didn't have to touch the screen anymore. But people said they can't hear me. So I turned it off.

    I'll be quite serious...but I am partially deaf and so I can only use my left to hear anything and even that sucks trying to get volume.
    My concern was that the sweat hurt the phone over time. I've considered going "voice free" and never talking on the phone except for rare envronmentally perfect instances. I mean come on, I can type on the Treo likes there's no tomorrow...why should I talk to anyone. Personal feelings always seem to get in the way of human conversation....black and white clears up the lines of communication a little. Ok....I think I'm rambling now.

    Does ear sweat hurt the Treo? It depends. If it were like a bucket of ear sweat, and you were to drop your Treo into it and leave it there for five or ten minutes, I think your Treo would be hosed. (but then, even if it weren't, would you really want to ever use it again?)

    That being said, normal ear sweat comming off of the ear shouldn't ever really pose a problem for the Treo. The problem is more likely to come in how people choose to clean their Treo's off afterwards. Obviously you don't want to get your Treo wet (or at least any more wet than it is with the ear sweat and all...). You should probably use just a soft paper towel, something that wont scratch the screen. Harsh clensers and abrasives can scratch your screen, or possibly damage the screen's protective coating (you know, the thing that makes it reflect like a mirror so you can't see the screen when outdoors?).

    Maybe you should try a bluetooth headset. That way you wouldn't have to touch the phone, and if it gets ruined, it would be much cheaper to replace than a $600 phone.

    I wonder the exact same thing. When I at a construction site with a hard hat on, I am practically raining with sweat. I would use a bluetooth headset if I could find one with decent volume. Construction sites get very loud.

    I use a BT headset when I can, but sometimes it's just too loud out to be able to use it because the volume is not that great and when I'm outside wind blows into my hearing aid and I can't hear a thing.

    I guess I'll just have to live the ear sweat for the rest of my life...the curse I lead.

    Well you could always throw a bandana or doo rag over it, but that might decrease vol. too much.

    Sounds like you had your MIC turned down too low. This was also a problem in the earlier Beta releases. Version 3.21 is solid and no longer has this issue if you have your MIC adjusted properly.

    I used to live in St. Louis, and I can say that St. Louis summer is the whole reason for your ear sweat! Move to Denver, and your ear sweat will be a thing of the past

    I realize this isn't the correct thread but I asked this question in another thread and never got a reply. Either there aren't many Treo 650 users in St. Louis or they don't participate in the forums here at treocentral.com. That said do you have any idea if we get EDGE speeds in St. Louis? Thanks.

    Never mind ear sweat!
    I have real potatoes growing my ears, it blocks the hearing somewhat!
    You could always market the ear sweat(tm) in bottles and call it: Real 100% treo ear juice...........people will buy anything. Sell it on ebay, I want a commiss ion for the idea

    Just to mention...The Palm Bluetooth headset is just $56 at Buy.com (8/15) and it comes with a wall charger (the review SEXybeast must be a little outdated) and qualifies for free shipping.
    No more rhymes...and this time I mean it!

    But whatever you do, don't use the antenna to pick your nose. Probably wouldn't hurt the phone, but it's just gross.
