    I can't play my mp3 files with the Real player after the update. Anyone with this same problem?

    Hello Bill Gamble,

    I am not sure what NVFS is. I have not purchased a 650 yet because of the stability some people are having. Correct me if I am wrong but it sounds as if I install the update prior to any programs being installed it maybe more stable because all available ROM would be available and not taken by other applications.

    Thanks!

    It's "6 of one, half-dozen of the other", since the proper way to install the update is to a freshly hard-reset Treo.

    I haven't had any problems with the 1.31 fw update, but I did encounter one weird problem I wasn't able to recreate. The phone kept resetting after I received a voicemail. When it tried connecting to the Cingular network, it beeped once, then reset. I had to do a hard reset to get my phone working again. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing.

    I have had nothing but problems since updating. Let me qualify my post with these statements:
    1. I have no additional programs installed.
    2. I have not attempted to unlock the phone. It is as I received it from the factory.
    3. The memory issue was of no concern to me as my phone worked fine with the factory loaded programs.
    4. I work for a technology company and understand firmware updating. I have updated some of my home automation equipment via telnet close to 200 times during beta testing. I think I have a pretty good understanding of how to do updates but, of course could have made a mistake during the Treo update process. I followed the Palm instructions from teh website.
    5. I don't feel like I should have to install third-party aps just to use the phone the way it was intended.
    6. While the phone was far from perfect before updating (constant soft reboots and low volume on calls), now I have the following problems:

    a. Versamail does not know what mail is read, new, old, unread, etc. Everytime I get new mail, it wants to download everything. I know my settings are correct to only download new mail from the previous day.
    b. Twice, Versamail crashed, soft reboot, deleted my account I set up from my company and deleted all the mail. Frustrating!
    c. The Adobe PDF program that was supplied with the Treo software no longer works. Everytime I try to open a PDF I get a soft reboot and get a message about unable to beam document.
    d. The Excel program that was supplied with the Treo software does not recognize values greater than 3 digits. It also does not understand an.xls file that uses autocalculation. The fields show up as ####
    e. The auto screen off after 30secs is annoying as sometimes it will soft reset by itself when trying to turn the screen back on.
    f. Call volume has not been improved.
    g. What the hell is the "Get Goodlink" program? It is a pay service that I don't want and I want to delete the icon and associated overhead.
    h. Same thing with the Wrls EMail. Don't need it, don't want it.
    i. What are SIM Services? I get an error message, "Unable to retrieve the SIM Services menu. Either there are no SIM services provided by your mobile operator, or there was an error when talking to your SIM." IF this cannot be accessed, why is it there and can/should it be deleted?
    j. The keyboard entries onscreen cannot keep up with my typing speed either on SMS or email.
    k. Calls are dropped more than ever.

    I guess I need to start over with a new update process. The only data that is important is Outlook and I can retreive that upon HotSync. I would go back to the original firmware instead of this. I am sure there are posts about that if it is indeed possible. I would think the OS would have to be deleted and reinstalled first. Anyway, the phone is pretty much useless right now. I would welcome comments on whether I made mistakes or advice to improve the situation.

    Doesn't that just mean that you've got to make the column wider?

    The height/width values were set correctly in the original document using MS Excel on a WIN XP PRO SP2 machine

    I suppose by using a ROW Firmware, it would void your warranty.
    However, people have been able to update from the 1.28ROW back to the 1.31CNG Firmware.
    So, if you ever did need to do a warranty exchange, flash it to the approved Cingular one.

    I've read in some threads that people have had to do Warranty exchange and submitted phones with updated ROW Firmware, and weren't charged by Cingular.

    is ROW better then the Cingular firmware update? more reliable?

    Re - your Adobe problem.

    Chances are, you are trying to open a PDF that hasn't been converted by Adobe-desktop.

    The PDF reader is really asinine. You must first convert it on the desktop, then download it to the Palm. If I am on the desktop, why would I download it to the palm to read. Utterly stupid design.

    Rob,

    Could you expand onthe process for doing this? I 'imagine' it would be the same as the upgrade steps, the only sticking point for me is i don't have any copies of the older firmware. where could i find them, and how could i do this?

    TIA,

    Dan
