    Actually, mini sd and sd are the exact same thing, just different form factor (and same with micro).

    i.e. all a an mini-sd to sd adapter does is connect small pin 'a' of mini->sd to big pin 'a' of regular sd.

    Edit: just read what you're asking. I don't have the 755 app on the 700. But I believe that the MR will include it, and it is a better "version"
    1) What does "I don't have EVDO" mean? I just did an ESN swap from a 650 toa 700p, no plan changes (i.e. still have regular vision) and i am sure the speeds are EVDO. Chatter is so much faste w/ evdo (albiet it was very usable on the 650, though sending messages was much slower than I'd have liked)

    2) If there was core OS functionality that was broken, one can improve versa mail without changing it, byt simply improving the core os functionality.

    It means there is no EVDO in my area.

    contactslib-p1ct_enus.prc
    contacts-Padd.prc
    contacts-padd_enus.prc

    Then moved all 5 files over to the internal memory with Filez
    I did this too. Now contact is 1.3.3.(Is it an upgrade from original 700p ROM version?) and Googlemap is 1.1.2. There is a map button on the contact who has an address. Pretty cool.

    Wondering whether anyone has try to get Bejeweled on 700p or not.

    Update: I got Bejeweled on my 700p but you have to register it after using it ten times. Oh well!

    Is the Calendar app updated?
    Calendar is updated from 1.3.1 to 1.3.2. I haven't heard any advantage of it though.

    You can try with the same method and see if there are any visible change.

    I just upgraded, and am trying to find difference, if any.
    When in the daily view, under menu, and options, what do you have listed?

    I have
    Font, Preferences, Sound Preferences, Display options, Phone Lookup, Security, Year View and about Calendar

    Hey Albertb:

    Whenever you post your "posts:" number is supposed to go up.

    Yours has been 847 for at least 3 posts!

    Check it out w/ mods and let us know what happens.

    Be well,

    David

    Just one more to see if my "posts:" number goes up (to 100!, like it's an accomplishment...;-D )

    Post well, all.

    Interesting, I'm trying one more post before I notify mods, to test it out.

    --
    looks like it went up to 848, don't know why it was stuck!

    It's the same here. So I don't know what were the changes.

    That's almost a given. When Palm claims they "monitor the forums" they aren't kidding. We ARE their actual support.

    We caught the 650 memory problems the first day the units were released, even though you would figure SOMEONE at Palm might have actually tested them at some point before they went into production.

    And people like Shadowmite have probably given Palm more help for free than the paid group of Palm engineers that appear to be too focused on screwing up the Treo button arrangement on every release to bother actually noticing little things like the bluetooth doesn't stay paired with headsets. If Palm would just release the ROM tool to Shadowmite he'd have them off a workable ROM before lunch. 1 year of waiting seems criminal, the release of the 755 and not immediately offering a 1:1 trade-in for those stuck with dysfunctional 700p's compounds the insult.
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    I've been using VersaMail for a while now and I never have had any problems with it. Frankly, I only have Gmail configured. Maybe that's why?

    BTW, mine is a VZW 700p.

    I never really had lag issues either..Guess I'm lucky. But bluetooth really needs some help.

    One of the things to pay attention to is the grouping of apps by date when you look at the rom.
    Visor --> Visor Platinum --> Treo 300 --> Treo 600 --> Treo 650 --> Treo 700p --> Treo 755p --> Treo 800w --> Palm Pre

    Can this be flashed this directly into a 700p?

    after installing versamail from the 755p my treo 700p's is still the same exact version, not 3.5.4 from the 755p. It's still 3.5.1 same as it always was on the 700p. Haven't noticed any improvements, I had no complaints any way.

    Jimmie, you have to also install "MultiMail" and the "MM" files to see version 3.5.4. Besides integrated push, I didn't see any differences from 3.5.1

    Has anyone tried this on a 650?
    If God brought you to it He'll bring you thru it!
