    Hi Everyone! I just got a Treo 680 on AT&T, I love it, but have some questions...

    * If I miss a call, I get a weird text message that isn't a link, but is all code and completely undecipherable. Is there a way to turn this off?

    * I'm not getting all my emails. I set up my gmail account, but it's only pulling a very small percentage of my mail, maybe 3 or 4 percent...I checked my phone this morning and I had 4 or 5 new messages, when I got to work I checked on my computer and I had 27 new messages. Is there a better way to get email other than through the bundled software that is on the Treo?

    * Is there a better interface out there? I had a Treo a long time ago and know that I downloaded something that overrode the "home" screen and had improved contacts/calendar/notes/to do functions but I've racked my brain and cannot remember what it was.

    I'm sure I'll have more questions but this is all I can think of now

    Thanks!!!!

    * I have no idea why you get that message - could be your provider? If not your phone may be screwy!

    *the email prob sounds like your internet - again maybe check your service. when i used versamail with my gmail accts I got all my email w/o any fuss

    *better interface - one is Zlauncher..very nice skinner for the home page. For the PHone Screen DialbyPhoto is a good option. There is also an app called 2day which you might like.

    I'm sure more experienced users will clear up the issues couldn't and welcome to treo680-land!

    Sweet - thanks! I have to call and switch my plan around today so when I do that I'll ask about the goofy text messages too. And I'll definitely put google to work and find those apps you mentioned...see what they are all about.

    I occasionally get the text messages, they're a bunch of numbers, and then a phone number is buried in there somewhere. I think that if someone chooses to page you, then that's the text message you get.

    An excellent addition to the standard calander application (which also links into contacts and ToDos well) is Datebk6 from Pimlico Software - very powerful upgrade and freeware for a trial period. It also adds an icon feature to the calander that makes it easy to "classify" your appointments as you see fit (well I find it helpful anyway!). The support is excellent and the registration fee if you like it goes to a wildlife charity. I'd certainly recommend giving it a try.
