    Does anyone know if you go back to the 600 once you have converted your desktop treo software to the 650?

    The 650 desktop software ought to support older models.

    I'm pretty sure the latest version of PalmDesktop is support's all of Palm's PalmOS handhelds.

    I would create a new profile (or delete the one for your T650) before HotSyncing your T600. There are databases and programs that get backed up that won't be compatible with your T600 and PD will try to load them when you re-sync your T600.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm not sure I decsribed the situation correctly. I have a 600 now. Want to get a 650, so at that point I'll get the new palm desktop for that unit. I think it converts all my current 600 data to 650 format. After this, if my 650 breaks, can I get my trusty 600 out and get my current 650 info back onto the 600?

    I assume this question concerns your PIM data; in that case, the answer is "Yes". Hotsync can tell that the 600 uses the older PIM apps and restore that data in the proper format.

    Thanks Bill, that's what I am looking for. Does this include the button assignments?

    No; the 600 and 650's systems files are different. When moving between the 600 and 650, either way, you should rename the /Palm/<username>/Backup directory before syncing the new device, so that you transfer only the PIM data and not system files or incompatible software on the initial sync. Follow up by manually installing only device-compatible applications to the device.
