    I bought a T600 the nanosecond Verizon first carried it. I always thought one of the under-discussed features of it was the inclusion of a wonderful calculator. The financial calculator is especially important to me, as it allowed me to cease carrying one.

    I never really shopped the T650, but a friend showed me his with its calculator and I was shocked to see how poor it is. What happened to the old one I have?

    Worse, I now want to purchase a new 700p, and I see on the website that the 700p has the same poor one that is on the 650.

    Which leaves me with this question:

    Does anyone know if the good calculator (from the 600) can be obtained as as add-on software, and if so where? This is important to my tradeup decision.

    And, I am just curious ... do many others find the calculator to be an important feature?

    Thanks in advance.

    The 650 calculator has several modes, selectable from it's drop down menu. Did you view all of it's modes?

    Search Handango and PalmGear for calculator apps.. Most of them have trials so you can try before you buy.

    Yeah, what he said. A lot of people don't even know the advanced modes of the basic calculator exist, and are pre-loaded on the 650.

    Perry:

    My 600 had a drop down menu on the screen. My friend was unaware of that feature, and frankly I could not find one when he asked me to look.

    Any specific knowledge as to what really is available on the 700p?

    When you have the calculator on the screen -- hit the menu button and then select Advanced Mode, then hit menu again and select options:

    math
    trig
    finance
    logic
    statistics
    Weight / Temp
    Length
    area
    volume

    Stumbled on it by accident one day. Suppose it's in the RTFM, but who does that? (I haven't, yet.)


    Cheers, Perry.

    Big thanks.

    My 600 drop down menu was always clearly visible on the screen, so it never dawned on me to go hunting in the menu on the 650.

    Duh.



    Much appreciated.

    I think the Landware calc emulates an HP 10C.

    Actually, if you go to the 'calc' app, just hit the right direction on the 4 way pad, and you can cycle through all the modes. Left goes back to the big-button calc. Pretty sure it was the same, if not very similar on the 300 and 600.
