    So does anyone have any idea yet as to how the Treo 600 will function as an "Always On" GPRS device?

    I've been holding off on the hope that I can replace my current BlackBerry 950 / SE T616 with a data plan on Rogers and be paying the same price but getting way more functionality.

    I am used to getting my email delivered regularly via the BlackBerry on the Mobitex network, every 5 mins works for me...however after seeing the hassle of the GPRS email connection on the T616 I am curious if anyone would have any feedback.

    Thanks in advance to all that reply!

    I don't know how the e-mail app works on the Treo, but I doubt it can match the Blackberry's e-mail functionality. I have a Blackberry working over GPRS on T-Mobile, and it doesn't even have to check every 5 minutes for e-mail. The Blackberry push sytem sends it instantly to the Blackberry. Now I am assuming that you can set up the Treo to check at intervals for new mail, but I haven't tried one yet. The Treo will destroy the Blackberry in organizer and web browsing capability.

    There is software available that will provide the same functionality - GoodLink is one brand that will work just like the blackberry, but it is a financial investment that must be made to get the server software.

    Ok but is there software that will allow similar functionality however without the backend enterprise level software.

    I don't need 'instant' but every 5 to 10 mins would be fine for me.
