    I completely forgot about the Taxi. Just placed my easter egg in the power settings. Lets see how long it takes for it to show up.

    When I read the title of the thread, I was sure I was going to hear a story of a brand spanking new Treo 680 falling out of someone's pocket in a taxi cab....

    Thank goodness it was just the Easter Egg!!!

    Been trying for a long time to get a screen shot of that sucker -- legitimately, not by photoshop. No luck yet ... can't press the buttons fast enough...

    isnt this the same thread title that lasted months on the 650 board?

    can someone please translate?
    it is an easter egg. you activate it by doing something, which i forget, and eventually you will see a yellow taxi driving by.

    I think I had it activated on my 600 and it would always freak me out.

    and this reminded me that I had mine turned "on" but have not seen a taxi ever - or in the 2 months I had it on!

    yes - counter clockwise circle in lower right hand corner - small circle.

    Was it late last night? Did you hear the screen door slam?

    Being from Dallas, they definitely paved Paradise and put up a parking lot . . . and some condos!

    It was actually this morning, not late last night. But I did think that I heard the screen door slam!

    Anybody seen a snipe around here?

    Can't tell if mine worked. Should I get a response? I'd done this years ago with both my 600 and my 650 and I ain't never seen a taxi. Like Chicago on a snowy day!

    Thanks! Mac

    BellSouth became Cingular, left for ATT, who became Cingular, who became ATT. Is that right?

    i saw the taxi today.

    i put the phone down with out turning it off, and noticed it as it was exiting the screen. i freaked, for half a second, before i realized what it was.
