    Reset button behind the battery door. Makes sense.

    THis is still overly complicated. I've had my Treo600 freeze on me while driving, and it is no picnic to unscrew the stylus and perform a soft reset in that situation! As often as the PalmOS freezes, they should make it easy to do a soft reset, maybe even let you assign it to a hard key.

    I assume you're talking about Dan's Cellular on eBay, right? Question on the car charger for the 650 - is this supplied from PalmOne, or is it a third-party copy? Guessing that its not from P1, cause it's $20 cheaper at Dan's...

    It may just be me, but you shouldn't be resetting your phone while driving. Palm shouldn't have to design the reset button for people who are driving.

    Am I the only one who has a problem with this image ("Treoing" and then trying to reset while driving?)

    On the 650 the stylus does not have to be (indeed, it cannot be) unscrewed.

    “Enable HotSync synchronization - By default, this box is checked, meaning you can both send and receive email wirelessly and transfer messages to your device from your computer when you synchronize. If you uncheck the box, you can send and receive email wirelessly only.”

    I like the idea of being able to sync email through HotSync as well as wirelessly. In the office, I can HotSync mail through Bluetooth (~720 Kbps); on the road, sync through the slower Sprint Vision (~56 Kbps).

    As far as I know, most email apps only allow Vision syncs (Snapper, Business Connection, Chatter, Good, etc.)

    i know, but having to remove the battery lid is just as bad. FWIW, I'm not saying that I routinely reset my Treo while driving-- but I do routinely get into situations where I'd like to reset my Treo while driving. what would be the downside to making the soft reset function more accessible? In my experience, resets aren't as rare as PLMO thinks...

    to perform any reset, just slide the battery door, remove the battery, put it back. That is your soft reset easy and no worries of data loss. wonderful huh? so simple...no need unscrewing the stylus or anything...

    In reviewing the users manual, I can't find any limitations on SD card size. I'm sure I read somewhere that there is a 1 gig max, but in the SD card forum I notice a lot of people are buying Sandisk's ultra II 2 gig cards. Is there a limit or not?

    YUK! I don't like that at all! I appreciate the fact that you don't have to unscrew the stylus tip anymore to reset the Treo, but why put the reset hole behind the battery? That just makes things more complicated and annoying. They should have just left the reset hole on the exterior as it is on the 600 imo...

    That's my point too... Look at the Tungsten T3. You just have to poke at the exposed hole with the stylus tip. In fact, I'd like to be able to soft reset with one hand. It's just a pet peeve of mine. Handspring has done such a fine job enabling one-handed operation in so many other areas that the complication of the reset process says to me that they are in denial about how often resets are done. What I find funny is that I use my Treo 600 stylus so rarely because of the clever implementation of the 5-way that i'd estimate 80% of the time that I do pull the sylus out of the silo, it's to do a soft reset.

    The location of the reset hole shouldn't matter. If Palm *really* wants to make things convenient for me in this respect, make the OS stable enough that I don't have to *use* the reset hole, wherever it is.

    The reset hole is NOT UNDER THE BATTERY. It is under the sliding cover, next to the battery. Slide the cover, press the reset. Drawing is in the manual.

    I'd hate for the reset button to be exposed, especially in a situation where I could do it one-handed. The reason is that I'd hate to accidentally reset it. Consider that I've had to reset the Treo once in the last 3 months, I think I'd probably accidentally trigger it more often than on purpose.

    You Treo 600 owners need to get TreoOffOn written by Quickster on of TC's posters. It has a built in Soft Reset & Phone Reset, Screen Dimmer and more. Do a search on the app here on TC. (never have to use the stylus for resets again) Quickster has also given us SoundOffOn. Try this one as well.

    Most of the times I've resetted my phone is because my phone crashed. I don't think TreoOffOn will help me in this situation. I do love this app though for its radio scheduling functionality.

    I agree with the other people in this thread that the reset button should be more easily accessible, but not too easy where people will inadvertently hit it many times.
