    After 5 years of Palm devices, and a year with my Treo 600, I'm finally moving on to a Treo 650 (Unbranded, unlocked). It seems like I've seen lots of posts indicating that the 650 is kind of finicky.

    What do I need to know to make a smooth transition?
    Should I do anything special with my last 600 hotsynch and/or my first 650 hotsynch?
    Is it OK to back-up and restore from Resco Backup?
    Should I avoid restoring either saved or unsaved preferences? Iambic Agendus users, will I lose my contact history links?
    Is the 650 version of Blazer improved enough to be useful ( I use WebPro 3.0.1a)?

    I'm welcome to any suggestions, or pointers to tutorials and grateful for your advice.

    Last June, I migrated from a Verizon Treo 600 to a Verizon Treo 650.

    I had no problem installing the software bundle that came with the phone and upon doing my initial hotsync, my contacts, previous SMS messages and the like came over to the new device.

    I only had to reinstall programs such as Backup Buddy, Treo Alarm, PDA Net and a couple of others (which was a piece of cake) and my T650 has worked flawlessly ever since.

    Is your 650 any more reliable than your 600?

    Were the chargers and such compatible?

    I tried to hotsync and go, and it was a disaster.

    Do yourself a favor and read the threads on the first hotsync - you cannot just sync your new 650 to your old palm desktop. You need to handle it like a fresh install.

    You will love the 650.

    also, the chargers, docks, etc are not compatible.

    Thanks for the tips! Seems like I heard that there is something different memory system in the T650 that affects certain 3rd party applications, for instance back-up apps. Are there any I should avoid or optimize?

    The reviews I keep finding are based on the original release. Have changes or fixes been made in the more current ROM versions or via updates?

    My 650 is much more reliable than the 600 in that I only have to do a reset once a month as opposed to once a week (600).

    The chargers and such are not compatible with the 650.
