    Good day all,

    As all of the US carriers move to 3g service and undated high speed data services does anyone expect an antenna-less TREO for SPRINT???.

    Take care,

    Jay

    Not that I know of, I think that's it for Sprint Treo's(700p & 700wx) until next year's upgrade. Anyone else have secrets, they want to share ?

    treoantenna.com may be the closest you get for a while. In the mytreo.net interview, the Palm rep said that "US customers don't mind the antenna - some even like it". Could have been a smoe screen, but it's possible we're not going antennaless for a while.

    Cool! Is anyone using this on a 700p?

    It's not ready yet, they are discussing it in another forum. The creator of the product is a member here.

    For some reasons I think it looks like someone's d**k being chopped off.

    I'm sorry if I've offended someone here but I can't resist.

    It's all personal taste anyway. :-)

    Are they going to call it the "John Wayne Bobbitt Antenna"????

    I wonder what the potential health issues of using a stub antenna even closer to your head than the one supplied which is already very short.

    Of course the best way is with a "wireless" bluetooth headset especially for high minute users. But since that is not always feasible . . .

    One thing that worries me is that the vendor will certify it's use at some point with the 700. But who will certify it's use for future health hazards of transmitting microwaves even closer to your head?

    I don't want to be known to my grand kids someday as "my grandfather" you know that guy with the "Third Ear"! Or "Ya Chuck was always a great guy . . too bad that brain tumor took him so young"!

    Not trying to be too morbid here, but it's something to think about before jumping on a new accessory that will be "certified" by the guy who is selling it to you

    Good design is harder than it looks.

    The Treo product line is fragmenting as designers struggle with constraints. There seems to be little pattern in how this is happening. That is to say, there is no governing design philosophy. Consistency is disappearing. New models have different screen resolutions, batteries, and other features.

    Rumors abound and speculation overwhelms fact. No one can tell you very much and you cannot believe anything that is not being delivered.

    I understand a wired headset channels the radio waves straight to your head, so is even worse than just using the phone to your ear.

    Here we go again. The Consumers Association, annoyed at having its findings dismissed last time by the government, has done another series of tests on mobile hands-free kit and found again that it actually increases the radiation to your brain.

    The idea is that the wire acts as an aerial and induces more radiation from the phone zoom straight into your jellified head. The physics is sound, but does it happen? Yes, said CA in July. No, said the DTI in August.

    Meanwhile, we found a man that explained it was all in the testing. Basically we're talking specific absorption rates. Some phones have peaks at various frequencies but if you wanted to, say, make the peak smaller, you would average out the SAR level over a wide range of frequencies. You follow?

    Anyway, there's more controversy here. The CA has done its new report and said that, yes, hands-free kit can increase the amount of radiation. It has also said why it thinks tests by Australian scientists are a little dodgy. Apparently, in those tests, the hands-free wire was not allowed to hang down straight (a fairly realistic scenario it must be said). As we're talking induction here, a straight wire would be far more likely to give higher radiation results. Hmmm.

    The DTI said it has problems with CA's methodology.

    Well we have problems with all of them. If mobiles were dangerous, would the DTI really tell us? Note that mobile phone companies make a lot of money and are quite important to the economy. Equally, wouldn't the CA release the worst radiation results? I mean, if they're measured, then they're there aren't they?

    We would like to see people stop arguing amongst themselves and arrive at a good, solid, universal test. Then we can begin work on how dangerous they really are in practical terms and what we do about it. Call us crazy.

    All you have to do is wrap aluminum foil around your head to block out the radiation.

    Urban legend. Most of the RF radiation comes from the phones transmissions. The transmissions come off the antenna not anything connected to the phone. There is a tiny amount of RF that is created by the power supply of the phone. That would follow the wired headset to try to find ground. That amount is at least 100 times less than the transmitting RF.

    I suspected the same. Got a link?
