    Hi Shimon,

    It's always good feeling to download new version of my favorite Treo utility

    Few questions:

    1. What happend to "phone style" buttons in "Find" ? I am using graffiti Treo and this is essential feature for me.
    (trying to use stylus while driving is veery unpleasant). I beleive that keyboard users also benefit from large screen buttons compared to tiny keyboard.
    Am I missing someting ?

    2. After presing entry in "Speed" it always displays "Edit speed dial" screen (/w back/update/sms/call buttons) ? It brings me additional click before dialing and I definetely don't like it

    Yes, it allows me to easily send SMS to speed dial entries (I requested that feature earlier), but I don't think it is convinient solution

    3. I forgot to mention earlier; I am using Croatian character set(all Central & Eastern Europe use the same code page Win-1250).
    I cannot find entries with first letter in Croatian (,,, , - set encoding in your browser to be able to see correct characters)
    I tried to enable " use umlaut characters but it doesn't work)

    ps. I just registered my ThakePhone

    Hi,

    1. I am not sure I follow - do you mean the "ABC", "DEF", buttons ?

    2. Tap and HOLD on a button to dial it without the "Edit speed dial" screen.

    3. I will check it.

    Thanks,

    Please make sure under "Preferences/Display & Formats" the second option ("Full-Screen...") is UNCHECKED

    hehe, it's funny how powerful the software is, does just about anything we could ask! Definitely one of the best out there for palm communicators. Nominate this dude or something! Simon, can we have an option to say ' Beam me up Scotty' when the flip is opened? Damn, that would be cool.

    Uops ! Shame on me. I thought I verified all preferences. I definetely agree with christo1970

    Few points to my wish list :

    1. National character find shoud work like it worked on my old Nokia - 'ABC' button should also search for etc...

    2. Hold "Phone button" on built in Treo phone is redial last number. It is very usefull - finally - all mobile phones have green button with redial funcionality. I can turn-off beam business card now, but it didn't bring be redial.

    ps. You are most probably aware that lookup still has old bug.

    1. Go to "Preferences/Find" tap "More...", check "Use umlauts"

    2. Press and hold the Jog-Dial for redial.

    3. Please remind me - old lookup bug ? ...

    1. As I wrote you eariler, it doesn't work with "use umlauts". It works only with character "" but it doesn't work for other characters "Ǝ" neither with buttons nor with direct input. I need to quit Takephone and go to Phonebook when I am dialng "izmar" or "uni"

    2. Cool. I also discovered that in meantime. Are those features descirbed in manual so that I don't bother you with unecessary questions.

    3. While trying to add entries in Speed dial using TakePhone, it is only possible to enter "Work" phone - or just one phone if entry has ony one phone. I can't choose other phones (mobile ...) Workaround is using built-in Phone book

    It would be really cool if TAKEphONE would go directly to the phone app if it is invoked during a phone call.

    I have my phone hardware button set to go to TAKEphONE and if I leave the phone app during a phone call (to take notes or something else) and need to get back, I have to go all the way through the launcher.

    Great idea.

    But - you (or someone else) might want to use TAKEphONE during a call to setup a conference call.

    So - How about - if within a call - a SECOND press on that button will launch the built-in phone app ?

    That would work very well.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I have just posted a new version at my site: www.shsh.com/beta

    What's new:
    - Puts brackets around contact names when scheduling calls -
    to enable Agendus integration.
    - SMS: Formats the target phone number.
    - SMS: Support for "Text messenger" s/w by Scott Moore -
    send SMS via the SPRINT servers.
    - "Details" screen - a long press on the Up/Down buttons moves
    a whole screen.
    - 7135: Added an option to "return to main screen after a call"

    For 7135 users:
    - If you install the "7135 telephony hack" (remove the previous
    SMS hack, if you have it), you can:
    *** Send SMS messages from TAKEphONE using the built-in
    "Messages" s/w.
    *** Start a CONFERENCE call from within TAKEphONE if you
    are already in a call (find a contact, make a call)

    Any input is welcome as always -

    Fix - allow email addresses as SMS target.

    Hi There,

    Just noticed a little thing. On the Treo 270, the SMS (hardware) button no longer opens up a new sms. The software buttons still works as normal.

    Keep up the good work!

    This is intentional, since people use it for other purposes.
    I figured - since you are aout to use the screen anyway (to write an SMS), you would not mind tapping a button...

    I actually got quite used to using that button. faster than screen presses. Since the Treo has the keyboard, I use that for the SMS's, and my hands are setup for using the keyboard.

    I know it sounds silly. Could this be an option for the Treo buttons? Also while we adding that, could you set the Datebook button to automagically start scheduling, and the browser button to start beaming?

    If it's not possible, that's ok, but I just thought they would be nice quickkeys. Configurable hards keys... the same way you set the applications -- how about that?

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you all know -
    I am going away (at last) for a (much needed) vacation
    during the next week or so.

    I will get back online as soon as I get back, and continue the
    "TAKEphONE saga"

    Thanks -
