    I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I couldn't find anything.

    My Treo 650 is tethered to my Dell laptop via the sync cable. My Outlook contacts database is syncronized with my Treo via GoodLink.

    Does anyone know of a way to click on a button in an Outlook contact on my laptop and have my Treo start dialing the number?

    I surely appreciate any help.

    Thanks!

    Are you dialing a data line or a voice line?

    If voice, why not just dial straight from the phone, since the number is synced? I don't think there's any way to do this from Outlook. The only way to get Outlook to initiate the call is to treat the Treo as a modem, and I doubt you could switch it from modem to phone mode mid-call.

    If data, there's a little phone icon on the Contacts toolbar (at least in Outlook 2002) called AutoDialer. Assuming your Treo is defined as a modem on your laptop, you should be able to click on that to dial.

    I'm only trying to use a voice line. I could dial straight from the phone but what I was trying to do is keep my hands on the laptop (mouse) and just click to dial.
