    The small rubber plug by the antenna that hides a screw fell out, which gave me an idea for a lanyard there. I drilled a 1/16 in diameter hole starting from the screw hole in the direction of the opposite rubber plug. Fished the lanyard through with needle and thread. I have much less worry now about dropping the phone.
    I can shoot some pics if you want to see it.

    LOL, make sure they are on your desktop (you could email them to yourself or import them from your camera), put them in pictures section of your desktop, go to the bottom of this screen and hit "Browse". Find the pic and hit select. TaDa.

    I selected my favorite rock star pic and here she is:

    Every phone that I've had in the past 4 years has had a strap (or lanyard) attached. It's become a crutch. I own a machine shop, I have access to prints for NASA and Boeing holding tolerances of .0001" per linear foot. I'd be uncomfortable drilling a hold in MY t600.

    Golden ones too

    Actually it wasn't a difficult job. I stuck a sewing needle into a bamboo chopstick for a handle, heated needle red hot in a propane torch and made a pilot hole through the Treo 600. Since there's not much mass to the needle, it cools fast and you have to work fast and reheat a few times before it goes through all the way. I then enlarged the hole with a small drill bit held in a pin vise by hand. Sewing thread and needle facilitated fishing the lanyard through. The whole job took less than 5 minutes.

    The bit I used was approx 1/16" dia but you should use as small a bit as possible that will allow the lanyard to go through.

    Here is one jpg. another will follow

    All you need to do is to learn some sterile technique and you could open up your own piercing pagoda at the local mall.

    Wireless DOc,

    Is that the new all weather Treo 600 as your avatar?



    I'm sure it came in handy this weekend.

    On another thread I described how I accidently pitched it into a snow bank.

    You can easily see the screen. The touch screen and the keypad also work very well. I haven't tried phoning through it.

    After looking at that photo, drilling through is 100% doable.
