    I have been a Palm OS user since the Palm Pilot 1000 and have owned probably 7 or 8 Palm OS devices including my current Treo 650. I have invested a lot of software in Palm OS apps and like the simplicity of the OS. My problem is this...I have setup a new time management system that requires me to have more than 15 categories. As you know, the Palm OS is inherently limited to 15. I currently use Datebk5 which is based on the native Palm calendar and therefore has the same limitation.

    I have considered using a new PIM app like KeySuites which uses a proprietary db and therefore can get around the category limit. The issue with this product is that it does not have adequate timezone support. Since I receive appt requests from several timezones, my calendar would never be correct unless I followed the kludgy workaround suggested by Chapura.

    I don't want to switch to a Windows Mobile device for better Outlook integration, but I can't seem to find a application that will adequately support both timezones and categories beyond the 15 limit. Help me find an option that works!!!!!

    How about Beyond Contacts by Dataviz?

    I haven't tried it in a long time but it might be worth a try. It too uses proprietary databases so the 15 category limit shouldn't be an issue.

    I can tell you this - I used a Dell X51v for a short period of time that was running the lastest version of WM - can't be certain but I don't think it did very well with sub-folders at least in the method that Pocket Mirror Pro XT will. I use Pro XT with my T5 (my 650 died) and use more than 15 cats but most of this is done with subfolders rather than specific categories.

    Ugh, I have three Dell X51's at work, including the top of the line model, and they are GOD AWFUL SLOW. I don't see how ANYONE can put up with them. Doing just about ANYTHING is slow.

    And people call Treo's "laggy".

    I had an Imate JAM. after my T3 Broke thought I'd get a pda & phone combo. It ahd decent concepts, but it
    is
    the
    worst
    device
    I ever had the unpleasure of holding!
    * Camera 1.3 MP, crap, utter crap
    * Outlook, you have a sync account and a gprs account. I had to open two accounts (sync & gprs) for each email account because the sync account would only sync and not retrieve on the go, while the other did the opposite
    * crashed on average 3 to 4 times a day without adding programs
    * New programs oftn lead to crashes. When it crashes due to a new program, there is not ctrl-alt-delete, or a soft reset. you have to do a hard reset everytime that happens
    * Importing contacts from my palm f***ed everything up. I can send cards to palms, symbian's and Sony ericssons fine. But to a WM? home becomes work, family is unfiled, e-mail is fax, everything is messed up.
    Thank god for the treo

    Just a guess, but probably a corporate thing. We have the Dells here too as someone bought them to access word documents off our network but found it was not as easy as thought. They pretty much are used as day planners now.
