    OK, so you guys have been at this a few months. You experienced folks, tell me what I need.

    SnapperMail? Is that the best?

    What are some other must-haves? Where do you get the software?

    I'm a Mac user (Panther) so any Mac-centric advice much appreciated.

    I'd not even tried to set the phone up because I thought the number port would fail.

    Do I even need to load the PalmSync software? Can we use Apple's iSync?

    The following alphabetical list contains a few of my favorite software for my Treo600. The descriptions are those provided by the developers/vendors.

    Audible - Listen to audio books, magazines, etc.

    BackupBuddy and BackupBuddyVFS - While your Palm(R) applications automatically back up every time you perform a HotSync(R) operation, this may not be true for every third party application you've loaded onto to your Palm organizer. Back up Buddy ensures that all of your data is backed up the next time you press the HotSync button and will quickly back up every application, not just the Address Book, Date Book, Memo Pad, To Do list, Expense and Mail. So in the event that you lose your Palm organizer, the batteries fail, or a third party application crashes your organizer, every bit of your personal and professional information will be safely archived on your desktop, making restoring your organizer as easy as dropping it in the cradle and pressing the HotSync button. Yes, it really is that easy! In addition to being a snap to install and highly customizeable, BackupBuddy also sports a cool, easy-to-view display of the back up status in progress, and is even able to back up applications put in FlashROM by products such as TRG FlashBuilder and TRG FlashPro! Finally, BackupBuddy is the only Palm Platinum Certified backup utility available for the Palm Platform. Support for backup of VFS volumes when "Backup Expansion Cards" is selected (note: requires the installation of the CardSync.prc enabler to function). (Windows version only.) TimeSync is now DST aware (note: you should choose to reinstall the TimeSync.PRC Palm application when running the installer.) Includes new BackupBuddyVFS with support for encrypted backups.

    Chatter - Chatter is a powerful communication tool for the Treo 600 that seamlessly integrates instant messaging (Yahoo, ICQ, Microsoft, and AOL messengers) with email (true "push" eMail via IMAP and email sending via SMTP). All network communication in Chatter is done asynchronously, meaning that instant messages and email are being received and sent "in the background", so there's no waiting for connections to be made or messages to be delivered. Chatter works while you're actually "in" Chatter or in other Treo applications; while your Treo is "awake" and while it is "sleeping".

    TreoAlert Manager - Are you a Handspring Treo Palm Phone user trying to use this PalmPhone as a replacement for a pager. If so, you may miss the "nag" ability of most pagers that do not just alert you once about a incoming page, but repeatedly nag you (if you want) until you acknowledge the page. You have surely been surprised by turning on the display of the Treo from standby mode and discovering that you have a missed call, unheard voicemail or an unread message which you missed because the unit went on standby before you saw the alert.
