    Okay, so I got my new Treo 680 today, have set everything up and it seems to work except for one problem.

    I can seem to access Email on the treo. If I click on the little email button in the phone app (indicating I have 4 messages) it flashes quickly, showing the messages (less than a second) but then goes back to the phone app.

    If I try to access it via the menu of application using the email icon, it does the same thing.

    I can't imagine I did something, but I must have! When I was setting it up, at one point on the Treo I was setting up the versamail, but I cancelled halfway through because I wanted to do something else. Could that have screwed something up? Any ideas how I can "reset" the versamail preferences or settings (perhaps so it thinks I have to run the setup again?)

    <sim question removed>

    On another note, it is possible to tell if the phone is receiving a GRPS wireless signal versus an EDGE signal? I know my old cell phone would have a "G" icon when I was in a GRPS area, and my friends phone shows an "E" when he is in an EDGE area. Is there a way to tell the difference on the Treo 680?

    Thanks!

    Solved the versamail problem. Had to do a hard reset.

    But I am still curious about the EDGE/GRPS signal.

    Your 680 will show two green arrows when connected to the network instead of the E usually found on motorolas...

    GPRS will show a little black triangle above your signal bars. EDGE will show the two green arrows or lightening bolts.

    So a black arrow versus two green arrows?

    Because when I am not connected to the internet (not websurfing or email checking) I get a black triangle. But if I connect, it shows the two green arrows. And looking through the manual , it indiactes that the two green arrows are for an active GPRS or EDGE data connection - not just edge (while the black triangle indicates a netowrk is within range, but not active).

    Did the manual get it wrong? Wouldn't be the first time!

    But there is no way to differentiate if you are connected EDGE or GPRS...other than simply seeing how fast you can surf?
