    I am a total Newbie when it comes to Treo's and I had a ton of questions about certain things so i wrote down all my questions with the answers or where they can be found. All the answers that are here are basically Cut and pastes from other posters on here so I take no credit for them. Hopefully this will help some people find quick responses before they have to ask. And remember, always search first! Enjoy!

    What is LuDusP?

    What is a Launcher?
    That is the main screen that you see all of your applications on. Some people want to delete some of the apps that came with the device, but as of right now you can't until the ROM Tool gets working for the 700P. You can use other launchers that will hide that apps that you do not use. Some of these launchers are:
    Mega Launcher
    Launcher X 1.2
    ZLauncher


    What are good programs for Email?

    Absolutely!
    www.palmgear.com
    www.mytreo.net
    freewarepalm.com
    Those will get you started, but there are thousands more!

    Can I add a WiFi card to the 700p?
    At this time, no. Will that change? Hopefully!

    Does the 700p Multi Task like a Windows Based PDA?
    No, only the 700W does. You can listen to Pocket Tunes and do other things, but that is the extent of multi Tasking on the Palm Operating System

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=115933

    Can you make and receive calls while surfing?
    When you are on an EvDO network, you can receive calls while you are doing something involving data, but that phone call will interrupt you data session. You can only do voice OR data, not both at once, however, a voice call will interrupt a data session. If you are in an area where you can't get EvDO, but only the slower 1xRTT, it won't even interrupt you - it will go streight to voicemail.(Courtesy of DVDMON)

    For those of us who don't have access to Power Vision, will regular vision work on the 700p?

    I am a newbie to Treo and this helped answer a lot of questions that I had also.
    A question I had is what is the most essential apps, games and accesories for the 700p. I have searched the threads and found a few here and there.

    I bought a bluetooth headset, and will be getting at least 1 2gig card. A case is a must, and GPS down the road. I installed treoalarm, a profile app, and also a keyboard app. The keyboard app let's you type way faster cause you don't have to use the shift key for caps or symbols. I typed this whole thing on my treo!

    Does anyone know how to get new color themes for the 700p? Such as the midnight one that was on the 650?

    Not sure if this works on the 700p, but you may try this:

    I don't know if its been said or not, but I notice that if I get a call from out of state or within and the number is not blocked the caller ID displays what state the person is calling from. I thought that was pretty cool.

    I know its not much.
