    BC will not be available until first quarter 05. For those looking to get corporate email on the road, the only way is to use the html page. Arrgghhh.

    At lease this ends the back and forth between the audiovox and the 650.

    For those of us going back and forth between these devices the decision has become clear for me now.

    Sprint will not have business connection ready for this device until Jan/Feb earliest meaning that you need to use sprints web based platform for checking corporate mail. Translation: inconvienient and no push.

    This makes the decision to go with the 650 clear and easy.

    I know that a few of us have been teetering back and forth and this puts my mind at ease with the 650.

    Not so fast. Seven, the company which makes Sprint BC, is still running its beta program, which features essentially the same software in a non-Sprint branded version. I'm pretty sure you can still sign up via a link on the Seven website. I'm using it on my PDA2k as we speak. Convenient and push.

    There may not be a desktop client, but I'm sure you can get it through the browser

    This is a cross-post, and not an entirely accurate one at that. See my reply to your post in the Treo 650 forum.

    Getting it through the browser is garbage. This is supposed to be a productivity tool.

    As for the seven beta, I am not sure on that one. But the software is not available via sprint.

    I tested Se7en for a couple of months. It's easy to sign up. I would think they'd love to have 650 testers. Sprint uses Se7en now and so does Cingular. The client for the 600 would probably work on the 650. If they make a Palm client then it should work on the 650.

    What reason do they give you for it not working? I think if you just signed up anyway, it would work. It's just a PPC program that you need. Nothing related to the phone.

    I had the same question myself. I would think any PPC should be able to run that version, just as the 650 device should be able to run the Palm version without issue.

    Apparently ppc devices use different programs on board. The build for the 2032 is different than the g1000 etc. I think it comes down to the os.

    However the ppc 2003 release is not scheduled to be out for a minimum of 60 more day. The g1000 and 2032 versions are confirmed to not work with the ppc660x.

    Do you honestly think you will have your Treo 650 in your hand before January/February? Could be a nice race.

    I never used BC with my Treo as I couldn't use a desktop client because when I was on the road my laptop, with my corp email, was always with me in a bag.

    So I used Dataviz InBoxToGo and it worked great!!!!!! Is there another program like that for the PPC? I emailed and asked Dataviz, but have yet to get a response.

    It only took them 2 weeks to get it, and well before they went Retail with it, as it is still only available via Business sales, I think.

    I just installed mine, and it works great! No problems beyond trying to remember the password I used for my BC account.

    that service doesn't make sense for PPC, since PPC can read all normal file as if instead of needing a dtg email converter.

    (if you need full service email client, more so than the built in email client than use webIS email. It's full email client. so your PPC will behave like laptop when handling email.
    http://www.pocketinformant.com/productlist_windows.php
    WebIS Mail provides SSL POP3/IMAP, SOCKS support, HTML email, Separate authentication for incoming and outgoing mail, powerful notifications, character sets, and SO much more!)

    If you need to open all those fancy office file attachment.
    Your option varies from a good reader like 'Clearvuew by westtek
    http://www.westtek.com/clearvue.htm

    or full wordprocessor, textmaker.
    http://www.softmaker.de/tmp_en.htm

    and btw, the built in email client is more powerfull than that dinky dtg email client.

    Well, it must be 1Q05 already because the PPC-6601 version of Sprint BC has been available on the BC website for a few days now. If you go to Downloads and hit Pocket PC 2003, there is a client that says its compatible with the "HTC PPC6601" (it used to say "coming soon").

    The new client .506 must be used for the 650 and is compatible with the 600. Older 600 clients will cause the 650 to crash. This is why they updated the client / sofware two weeks ago so that
