    After reading about Woof's laptop issue...

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ad.php?t=70851

    a thought occurred to me...
    Would he have ever loaned out his treo?

    It made me wonder how many people here would ever lend their treo to another person. Not just to make a phone call but to actually use for a day.

    What if they really needed it... even for their job?

    *laffs*
    I would probably lend someone my car before i lent them my TREO.

    So here is the question

    Would you ever let someone borrow your TREO?

    In the end it's just a phone, of course I would let anyone use it.

    I wouuld let anyone use it while they remained in my immediate vicinity. I've given my Treo to total strangers (is there such a thing as a partial stranger?) to make calls. But no one (family, friend, or foe) has had it for extended period of time without me.

    I have too much stuff on it that I use with frequency.

    hey, i "lent" it to my neice so she could play solitaire. the treo is a year old, i dont baby it anymore.

    lending it someone to make a phone call is funny. most of my frequent contacts are in contact, so i rarely "dial" (or for that matter remeber) a number, but when i do dial i use the keys. for some reason, the lendees want to tap the screen.

    chick, is that u in the avatar? that pic is too small to do you justice.

    I've lent my Treo lots of times, even to strangers who need to make a call. Friends and family borrow it for games or even just to see the features. But for a WHOLE DAY? You must be out of your mind!!! The only time it's been out of my sight is when I sleep - even then it's within close proximity.

    I am right with you Chick.
    You should only lend your spouse out to VERY close friends and family.

    I am not sure if letting someone make a phone call actually constitutes a "lending" situation.
    I have relunctantly attempted to lend my treo to others to make a phone call...

    I think my profuse sweating, uncontrollable teeth chattering, and tourettes like symptoms upon offering... have always resulted in a no thank you from the offeree.

    Isn't this the State Motto of Kentucky?
    MaxiMunK.com The Forum That Asks, "Are You Not Entertained?"

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."

    I'll admit that someone at a bus stop asked me if they could make a quick call with my phone. Well, milliseconds after handing him my Treo 600 I thought "What the f**k am I doing?". So I didn't let the guy out of arms length and was ready to break into a sprint at any moment. Luckily no problem.

    I'm not sure the Treo is known on the street as a valuable item. I think someone would steal the new Razor before a 650.

    But you have to remember a Treo is more than just a phone. You have personal information, contacts, and softwares. I always tell others to get your own!
