Since you have to take the battery cover off anyhow (the Seidio battery cover replacement notwithstanding), this is way easier than pulling out your stylus and poking it carefully into that tiny little hole.

    Besides, it is so rare I have to use it anyhow. My Treo is very solid other than when I try out a bunch of new software. A lot of programs have a soft reset menu option as well, for those instances when you want to reset and you're not locked up.

    I think it's great the 680 does it this way. If it saves money, why not? It's just no big deal at all pulling out the batt.
    As has been said before...

    Those of us who have battery doors with holes in them... especially those of us who also have our Treo's in tight cases with drilled reset holes, would be very inconvenienced by having to pull the Treo out of its case, pull off the door, remove and replace the battery, replace the door, and put the Treo back in the case.



    Apparently, there are a whole lotta folks who are using their Treo's without protection. Scary.

    I don't think so. I think that's the v model you're thinking about.

    I think the review specifically stated that there was no reset button there (or anywhere).

    That's what some other folks suggested, so maybe you're right.



    I think every thread that reaches a certain size is likely to go through cycles like this where the same stuff gets said over and over, again. It's hardly anyone's fault for not wanting to read X-number of pages before commenting (depending on how big "X" is), so this is probably a good time for an old fogey like myself to bow out of this particularly convo.

    Love, peace, and hairgrease, peoples.

    There are several soft reset programs and many 3rd party launchers have a soft reset built into them on PalmOS. The problem is if the device becomes unresponsive because you can't activate the soft reset program at that point.

    My understanding is that it will reset itself if it locks for a certain period of time.

    All I've got to say is, without an SD card of 1GB or greater in the slot of my Treo 650, I'd have to doubt my own masculinity.

    Couldn't tell ya.


    For those that say that, like the 700w, the 680 and other newer Treo's won't need to be reset that often, due to their greater memory capacity, I noticed that this review says:

    "I should mention that the extra program memory isn't a magic bullet for system stability, however. The 700wx is certainly more stable than the 700w when multitasking, but both still give me the occasional confusing freeze up a couple of times a week."

    I dunno if Palm OS's tend to be more or less stable than WM5, but this seemed to be worth sharing. Hopefully, it's not too repetitive.

The extra memory will be a boon as well as the improved software base.
    I too am a power user who is looking forward to the 680. My 650 serves me well. I have a bluetooth headset for 2 years that I've used 3 times. I don't use WiFi on the phone. I DO use about 40MB of data on the phone a month, and only about 200 minutes of airtime. I have the phone in my hand a good portion of the day, sending email, checking my calendar, dealing with "things". I've had three Blackberries GIVEN to me, and I've bought 4 Treos (270, 600, 2X650). I wear the Treos out. The BBs fester on a shelf. I'll keep a Palm OS phone for as long as they make them, and they serve my needs.

    It's just not true that the 680 isn't for "Treo power users" and only for a new market. Being a "Power User" means different things to different people I guess. I realize that a lot of Treo users are looking for more, but I'll be thrilled with more memory on a 680, and won't feel at all slighted that I didn't get other "bells and whistles" that I don't really have any need for!
