    I am guilty of texting while driving. I know it's no excuse, but with the Treo you could do it with one hand.

    Actually no. My girlfriend complains of my slow driving. All my friends say I drive slow and so does my mom. My girlfiend has taken a seperate vehicle to places with me once or twice because I drive to slow. I do the speed limit, but I dont jump on the gas and I dont break 3 feet before my stop.

    I've texted while driving with both the Treo 650 and the 8125. Both were dangerous.

    Sounds like Microsoft is right, there is a strong need for carputers in this forum! Let something like Dragon Naturally Speaking do the typing for you while you drive....

    I'd admit that I've done many times myself with various Treos but I try to not make it the norm...

    I have actually used DNS while driving with my laptop. On long drives I often find my self thinking about various things with work and to jot down my ideas before I forget them in the next 5 hours of driving, so before I would leave, I would have my laptop open to a Word Doc use DNS as my own personal dictation secretary. It works great! Safer than grabbing a pen and no more distracting than talking to myself out lound in the car.

    Does anyone know if TomTom works with the 6700?

    Maybe with some luck you'll drop the thing in the john the next time you're "multi-tasking"...

    That's great news. I have TomTom on my Treo, but I'm giving the Treo and existing TomTom to my GF and I'm going to get the 6700, I just wanted to make sure I would be able to have a TomTom solution for this phone before I pulled the trigger

    ls3mach,

    In one of your earlier posts (near the beginning of this thread), you mentioned something about backing up your SMS messages. How are you able to do this? I currently have a Treo 650 and am also looking to switch to the 6700 with some reservations. I like to back up my messages as well. It was easy to do with the 650, where I would just copy and paste a thread to a Word doc. Is this how you do it on the 6700, or do you have a different way of doing it?

    If you are a heavy SMS user this will be a key thing that will bug the **** out of you when you switch. I am used to it now, but it took some time and I still prefer the Treo in this aspect. SMS are not threaded, they work just like your outlook emails. Backing up is SIMPLE and free (currently free, this may change later). I use a program called PMVault. It archives many things. Phone log, pictures, sms, notes and contacts. I LOVE this service and would pay for it. When you arcive, you can specify which or all of the above, you have web access to them from anywhere. If you archive your pictures you can make them public and use this as an image host. Very convient in my opinion. This service is currently free, but that may change I dont know.

    Thanks for the link and for your feedback! Thanks to your original in-depth review of the 6700, I already knew that the SMS messages were not threaded. That's do-able to me. Before the Treo, I was doing heavy SMS on a regular cellphone, so it won't be too big of a deal. My biggest concern was the backup part. The main reason why I am thinking of switching to another phone is the BT compatibility. With the Treo, it's hard to find a good, compatible headset. I'm hoping it will be different with the 6700. I plan to take advantage of the 2-week return policy. I've been switching back-and-forth between the Palm OS and Windows OS ever since I fell in love with gadgets, so to me, I don't really see a big learning curve when it comes to getting myself re-acquainted with either.

    After only using the 6700 for a week, I can totally agree what was said. It really is a great device and I will continue to use both, but for totally different applications (Treo was for business and now will be strictly personal) and 6700 is strictly business which I feel will be a benefit to me in the real world. Very excellent review and you have swayed me to keep the 6700 and not trade it in for a 700P.
