    I'm glad I bought a Treo 600, and I'm thrilled with it!

    What features do the rest of you like best about the Treo 600, compared to either your Treo 300, your previous cell phone, or your previous PDA

    Regards,

    Hi, there are so many things that I am crazy about with my treo 600. The size, the smaller thumb board is suprisingly easy to use. The phone is a large jump over my treo 300.

    The sd slot and longer battery life are also welcome improvement. Downloads are much faster with the t600 as opposed to my t300. Take care, happy new year, jay

    There are so many things that I love about the Treo:

    1. The combo interface with the pda, and other components.
    2. Receiving and sending e-mails on the go.
    3. It's small and compact, easy to carry around.
    4. The expansion slot. I have a 256 card which gives me roooom.
    5. It takes many 3rd party apps and more coming out each day.
    6. I use my Unlimited Vision, which for the first time since I've had the plan, I finally feel that I'm finally getting the long side of the deal.
    7. The speakphone is a nice touch.
    8. The "Wow" factor! Folks cannot believe it does all it does.
    9. Its reliable and dependable.
    10. The mp3 player is just icing on the cake.

    Before the Treo I owned the Samsung A600 and loved it with the digital camera and zoom + flash, but knew I wanted more. Like many of you I research my gadgets and I was all set to get the new Sanyo 5500 then I took a look at my needs and I realized that I really needed to be able to access the internet on the road and browse the Forums ( ). When I started to see posts about the Treo, I was like hey, is having a better digital camera and video feature on my cell that important. I do own a new Canon Powershot camera that does mini movies afterall (with superior quality). So when I looked at it long and hard, I decided to give the Treo a whirl, well that was over a month ago and I am STILL a Happy Treo Owner!

    -Happy New Year!

    My Treo 600 is amazing.

    I use it as the best damn phone ever (having my "little black book" contacts integrated into the phone is fantastic), for web access (phenominal to be able to look up information like maps, people, phone numbers, etc. while on the go), email (Snappermail is the best and allows me to download everything, including my corporate voicemails that come in .wav format, and Pockettunes allows me to listen to them), as my calendar (very convenient to almost always have it with me), as my note-taker, special reminders, and alarm system (diddlebug is excellent), as my calculator (like everything else, I use everyday - Easycalc), as my mp3 music player, as a portable dictionary, (soon) as a portable encyclopedia (World Book), as a sometimes useful to have low-res digital camera, and as a portable, ahem, way to fill-in-time by playing games (Nesem 1.4b - Galaga, Donkey Kong, Commando, etc.). I use it for other things, but you get the idea.

    This thing is absolutely FANTASTIC and I will never go back to having a phone and a pda and a calculator and a...

    Basically, I only want four major changes in the next version:
    1. better screen (320x320 16-bit transflective)
    2. user replaceable/removeable battery
    3. built-in bluetooth
    4. SDIO slot that can power WI-FI card (if bluetooth would allow you to use WI-FI hotspots, then this wouldn't be necessary).

    As it stands, I would be pretty damn happy if some company would come out with a combo SD bluetooth card (with PalmOS5 drivers)/memory card (maybe like 256 or 512 megs). I think that would hold me until the big screen Treo Ultra emerges

    Oh yeah, maybe an AM/FM radio thrown in to, that would be PERFECT!

    And although Sprint makes voice calling available on any of their phones, I just added it to my Treo and it seems to work as if made for this device!

    I can't get over how quick and accurate it is, and it substantially enhances the value of the treo 600.

    There just seems to be something very natural about talking to my Treo, rather than using the keyboard, when making phone calls. It fits right in with the technical excellence and "the future is now" theme of the Treo.

    $5 a month is a bargain for adding it, considering what we were happy to pay to buy the Treo!

    I switched from a pocket pc to the 600. Forgot how good Palm is. Great phone.

    Happy New Year!

    I just got my Treo 600 approximately two weeks ago.

    It is the 3rd Palm device (Palm -> Kyocera Smart Phone -> Treo 600).

    There were several years in between each one; and I actually gave up on using the Palm features on the Kyocera because it would not run (maybe I didn't spend enough time trying) the things I needed it to run.

    I'm on call every other week, and in the past that meant staying within 15 minutes of a computer so we can keep our service level agreements (SLA's).

    I debated for a while getting a laptop with a wireless card; that's what the other system administrator does for handling his on-call week.

    However, I would also go through the what if's -> loss, theft, breakage, still need a cell phone, remembering to bring it with me, environment, where to keep it, etc.

    After hearing great reviews of the Treo 300 as it related to server management, doing home work on the Treo 600 and seeing it highly rated, and verifying I could (in the very least) run SSH 2 on the Treo 600, I got one.

    The other day I found Palm VNC 2 (thanks to posts on this Web site), and verified I could also manage Windows servers as well as Linux, FreeBSD, and Sun Solaris.

    So I'm set to be able to be further away from home and office on those weekends I am on call.

    While I did come close the 1st two days to returning it due to my misunderstanding of certain features, and going crazy with Sprint technical support to be able to clear up my misunderstanding, once I got a hold of a good tech, I was set.

    Thank you.

    I bailed on the Sidekick at the end of November and got the Treo 600 which has a different set of challenges becase it's an unlocked phone for Cingular that I'm using with my T-Mobile SIM on. But, I don't have to be tied to T-Mobile to use the phone and have freedom to choose another carrier, can download ringtones, use PIM synch and other bells and whistles. I'll be able to use the Treo to take advantage of the Blackberry-like functionality that RIM/Palm are working on for next year. I think I'll hang with the Treo for the long haul because I've already been able to take advantage of functionality on the phone. For instance I set up a FuseMail account to merge AOL/Yahoo/Verizon mail and use another "plug in" to access POP/IMAP and corporate work email -- which is behind firewall/proxy -- via one interface with no problem on the Treo.

    I will most likely will get a new CSK with *fantastic* rebates for my daughter next spring because it would better suit her social/needs-taste.

    Hi dynamicnet!

    I note that you are using Palm VNC 2 with the platforms listed above.

    I use osxvnc host and CotVNC client on my Macs, and I'm wondering whether you might know if Palm VNC 2 can be configured to talk to a VNC host like osxvnc on the Macs.

    If you yourself don't know the answer, is it possible that you could point me towards a reliable source for that information?

    (A google search on the key words only turned up pages of vendors listing unrelated products, and not really anything tying these subjects together.)

    Any wisdom you might be able to impart would be most appreciated!

    TIA

    Regards,

    NateS

    How do you access the fusemail account from Treo 600 ?

    What email client are you using on the Treo 600 ?

    Thanks for your help

    Unfortunately, I can't divulge (at this time) what third-party product I'm using which allows me to access my corporate work email and POP/IMAP e-mail directly from my Treo 600....sort of a non-disclosure thing.

    But, if I try to use WebPro 3.0 browser on my Treo 600, and use Non-SSL login: http://www.fusemail.com/loginnossl.html, I can move around and access the frames, but have been unable to open messages, at this point I rely on the third-party product.

    You can also try checking out the forums at http://www.fusemail.com/forums as there have been some questions posted regarding Treo 600 functionality when using FuseMail web interface posted already.

    This post specially addresses internet-enabled mobile device access to FuseMail.
