    Thanks, that helps a lot. Now I have a better idea of what functions to try out instead of just being lost.

    I am a registered user of TAKEphONE, and to be honest, I don't use it much. I used to have a Kyo 7135, and on that phone it was an absolute necessity due to the "clunkiness" of the 7135's integration with contacts. On the Treo 600, being able to simply type "JSJSJS&$quot$;, $have$ &$quot$;$John$ $Smith$&$quot$; $come$ $up$, $and$ $then$ $hitting$ $the$ $center$ $button$ $to$ $dial$ $the$ $number$ $makes$ $TAKEphONE$ $redundant$ $to$ $me$. $As$ $you$ $can$ $see$, $others$ $use$ $more$ $of$ $its$ $features$ $than$ $I$ $do$, $but$ $that$'$s$ $my$ $.$02$.

    TAKEphONE requires some time to appreciate. There are some really subtle enhancements that become important to the user over time that are hard to articulate. For instance, if you are told a phone number and you use TAKEphONE to enter it instead of using the built in dial pad, there is a way to, clicking only one button, create a new contact, dial the number, send an SMS to the number, or addit to your schedule. It's exceptionally efficient relative to data entry using built in programs. Also, the fact that TAKEphONE searches all fields instead of just a few, se€

    Well, I went to try it again and I can't. It says my trial period is over and won't run. Must be some leftover file from when I tried it a few months ago.

    Well here is my 2-cents. Like rosenft said, it takes time to appreciate. There is almost too much stuff to take in at once, it almost is overpowering at first.

    To me, it's a great intergration of several things that the Treo can do, but does in servral app, or does a fair job, but not as well intergrate or thought out as TAKEphONE.

    I liked the OE dialer and contacts (I am a old Treo300 user), but find my self using TAKEphONE more amnd more.

    So seeing that I was not going to use TAKEphONE as a mail dialer, I looked at the other features and still decided to buy it. However, now I use TAKEphONE more and more. ALso, if I knew about TAKEphONE back in October, I would have not been so use to the OE dialer, and I tend to stick with what I learn first.

    Here is what I liked that was not part of the main TAKEphONE app, and these are why I bought it.

    1. The TkHkOS5hack is great to dial or pull up anything from anywhere. Even though the Treo 600 in the OE form can dial from other apps, like Blazer,it can't like in MEMO Pad, but TAKEphONE can do it all and also names too. Just highlight and select TAKEphONE (or 2Phone).
    2. The advanced search of TAKEphONE
    3. The Text to Number converter (I hate those call 1 800-get-help numbers)
    4. Press the hardware#3 button to go right to a SMS after a name is chosen.

    Even though I use 2Phone as my defualt for Button#1, the TAKEphONE "find" screen is my press #2 choice. Also, in hind sight, if it were not for the 5-way app launcher feature of the OE dialer, I would probably ditch it (the OE dialer)all together. I have mine set for the Down= pictures and Right=Favorites.

    Anyway, just check out the free trial some more and see if it's more appealing.

    On a phone that is not as advance as the Treo600, TAKEphONE is probably handsdown the hotsetup, but with the Treo600 having an 'ok" dialer, it's like a Ford Mustang verses a Covette in the Treo case, unlike the first where it's a Pickup Trick verses a Corvette.

    Just my 2cents and opinion, Matt

    you're a good soul; so many just say: sorrrrry!gotta buy it now!!
    you've got a good sense for paying attention to the details and the customers; that, and a superior response time to issues, sets you above the rest. btw, i bought takephone, and I love it...for many reasons, as I daily discover new features that streamline the treo experience

    Well, I just noticed something real cool! I can search the title field so when I am looking for the phone number of Dr. so and so, I don't have to rack my brain trying to remember the name. All the doctors show up in a list and I can remember the name of the one I want.

    In Takephone, can you have a favorite application that launches it from the SD Card or do any favorite apps need to be in main memory?

    If not, then this is a good feature suggestion for the next version of TakePhone.

    I am not sure if this is possible, as TAKEphONE uses the built-in speed-dial database...

    Can't check it out, either, since I do not have a device...

    I actually bought it right when 6.0 was announced expecting something great over the 5.05 version I tried. Not a horrible thing I guess, but it does support the 600 well. I never use the dialer buttons because I am used to the hard keys. If I could reduce the number of tabs in the main screen from 5 to 1 or 2 that would be nice.


    I only have 2 features that I miss from the built in dialer that so far I cannot duplicate it TP.

    1. Dial by initals. This is the origional reason I didn't buy TP. How can I duplicate this?

    2. Go to call history and select a number .... add to contacts. I use this alot from the built in phone app. It saves a bunch of time.

    Only Gripe:

    When I am on a call and I switch away to look at a memo or something... HOW do I get back to the phone dialog so I can hang up? This is unbelievably frustrating.

    Nonetheless, TakePhone is written by a person who clearly knows he can do a better job than anyone else. It's fast, elegant, useful, and a clear improvement for any PalmOS device. Agendus support is a bonus!

    Great work on 6.0. TAKEphONE is one of my favorite programs....it's awesome on the Treo 600.

    Here's a suggestion for 7.0: A really fast way to search using the builtin contact list is to punch in the first letter of the first name followed by the letters of the last name. So for Bob Smith, you would type bsmith. This way you wouldn't see any of the other Smith's in your list. I wish TAKEphONE could handle this as well.

    Again, AWESOME work on 6.0. I love the program.

    I have asked this before and am unsure of the answer. Can we have more than 50 favourites for the speed dial please?

    If I could reduce the number of tabs in the main screen from 5 to 1 or 2 that would be nice.

    >> You can not hide the tabs, but you can skip the onces you dont need.
    >> "Using the PHONE button" prefs.

    1. Dial by initals. This is the origional reason I didn't buy TP. How can I duplicate this?

    >> You have to *** one button press - a SPACE - e.g. to look for John Doe -
    >> press "J" + SPACE + "DO"

    2. Go to call history and select a number .... add to contacts. I use this alot from the built in phone app. It saves a bunch of time.

    >> goto a record -> "Details" -> "Add"

    When I am on a call and I switch away to look at a memo or something... HOW do I get back to the phone dialog so I can hang up? This is unbelievably frustrating.

    >> "Using the PHONE button" prefs -> "long press=launch phone app"
    >> then press & HOLD the PHONE button to go to the "Current calls" view.

    Nonetheless, TakePhone is written by a person who clearly knows he can do a better job than anyone else. It's fast, elegant, useful, and a clear improvement for any PalmOS device. Agendus support is a bonus!

    >> Thanks !

    As I said above - use a SPACE...

    You can configure TAKEphONE to either use the built-in speed-dial database (hence the 50 limit), or you can use TAKEphONE's database, in which case you raise it to 100 records, but loose the nice Treo features, such as HotKeys, launching apps/urls,etc.

    Thanks for the tip. The moving of entries around seems cumbersome as it allows only moving of phones up/down. Can this be improved? 100 seems to be a good number but why stop at 100? :-)

    Seems like the "two-digit index" limit is a usability limit - if you need more than 100 - it becomes an address-book rather than a speed-dial...
