    When you're on the fence about a purchase and need to think about it or get someone else's opinon, take a pic! The camera also comes in handy for copying small documents and recipe's in a pinch.

    One small frustration: if a contact has an extension, it is not displayed when scanning the address book or upon dialing. e.g. the number (212) 555-8000 x323 only shows up as (212) 555-8000.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to tell the Treo to dial the extension upon a keypress after dialing the main number? -- Without having to add those contacts into the favorites?

    one of my favorites, that reveals thr thoughtfulness of the design team, is that in Blazer u can hit spacebar to automatically take u to the bottom of the screen.

    (Yes, I know I can set an alarm, but that's such a pain, and clutters up the calendar, besides.)

    Thanks for all these tips! Is it still possible to access the shortcut command (like ts, ds, etc) without using Graffiti?

    Press "ALT 0"

    or download Shortcuts5, it allows you to assign "." for the prompt. Much easier, make the "shortcut" a shortcut again..

    I have been thoroughly impressed with Bob's Alarm. It has timers, alarms, and a stopwatch that turned my T600 into an awesome travel alarm clock and timer combo. I travel a lot for work and it does my wake-ups as well as anything else I need to have timed. Plus, the developer is very, very responsive to feature requests and bug fixes - unlike anything I've seen before. More detail's at:

    I travel a lot internationally. As a result the numbers I have stored do not always match the dialing rules of the country I'm in. If I go to contacts and find the number I want to dial and tap the number with the stylus the treo will let me edit it before I dial. Is there a way of doing this with just the keyboard? Its a pain when I'm driving to try to pull the stylus and hit the number. Thanks in advance.

    I've always wondered... what's the difference between hitting option+POWER and just pressing POWER? Both seem to activate the keyguard. I'm confused!

    By the way, I'm new here. Hi everybody!

    If you travel a lot, try TAKEphONE. It has a setting in the Options menu on the main dial screen, under "telephony, were you can set rules like

    Dial from
    County XX Area-Code XX
    Dialing rules- I dial
    XX before internatinal calls
    XX before calls out of area code

    Outside line prefix
    Long distance XX
    Local XX

    You can get a free trial at http://www.shsh.com/products/takephone.html

    http://www.shsh.com/products/index.html

    TAKEphONE is VERY POWERFUL, it may seem a little complicated at first, but you can catch on fast, and only use what you need for the time being. Also, the author, Shimon is very helpful and prompt as well.

    Hope this is helpful

    You can actually use the number pad on the keyboard to enter the time of an appointment. Use "p" or "a" for pm & am!

    Similar to the editing favourites tip a page or so back in this thread I've just found that you can move your bookmarks around in Blazer. This is especially handy if you have a preloaded page from your service provider that you can't edit or delete.
    When in bookmarks view click on Edit. You will see a page of ten bookmarks and below that an overview of ten pages of bookmarks. You can move bookmarks around using your stylus to drag and drop within the page they are currently on, or by dragging them down to the overview page you can move them to another page. Lastly you can shuffle the pages themselves. No longer are my bookmarks simply in the order I bookmarked them!
    You can also rename each page but you only have a certain number of characters.

    Is it possible to copy/paste/duplicate a Favorites button? I made buttons for direct calling-card calls and I want to make more without having to enter the whole card/pin information.
