    I'm sales rep for T-Mobile, and I've recently won a Treo 600 (I'll arrive in about a month). I'm very excited about the device, but the problem is that it will be the first Palm OS device I've ever owned. I've been thumbing through this site, handango, and palmgear, and I've identified a few pieces of software that I'd probably put to good use (PocketTunes Deluxe, HBlogger, and a few others), but I'm curious what the community thinks the essentials are... a few people have mentioned FileZ, and a few other applications like Butler that appear to be absolute must haves... Let me know guys, what should I stock up on for this Treo?

    You did say "essentials" so I imagine a reasonable limit of 10 apps should do:
    Zlauncher
    BackupBuddyVFS
    Butler
    TrafficStat (if you have a data plan)
    PocketTunes
    SpashID
    Kinoma
    SplashPhoto

    God, Card Export II is vital to me in conjunction with a sync & charge retractable USB cable and a 1 gb SD card. I can almost work without a laptop with this combination.

    Also, I'd mention Verichat as a superb chat app, the fact that it allows me to chat on the MSN, AOL and Yahoo protocols is invaluable.

    Security-wise the fact that mSafe allows me to remotely hard reset the Treo is a big, big plus.

    Callfilter has some brilliant features that I couldn't do without.

    Honourable mentions go to CardBkup, 3nity, DateBk5, Filez, MetrO, TrafficStat and Warfare Inc

    I happen to love Avant Go and Vindigo.
    With Avant Go, you can have up to 2 mgs free of articles to read. It's basically a website clipping service, based on your interests.

    Vindigo has many large cities available,and gives you banks, movies, bathrooms, banks/atms, etc... in those cities.

    If you need directions, go to Mapquest & download the directions to your palm.

    I can't use email, as my main email is hotmail. Someone mentioned the program that allows you to chat on AIM/Yahoo/MSN at one time. As I haven't tried that either yet, "how" does it make it easier?

    There are loads of games & apps you will be able to find. I just got mine (600) for Christmas, and after updating it, I'm down to 7 mgs free space. LOL

    You'll have loads of fun playing with it. Congrats!

    I've only just started really using IM on my desktop and was used to only being able to chat with people using the same protocol. When I downloaded Verichat I was instantly able to contact buddies on AOL/iChat, MSN, Yahoo. This strikes me as excellent but bear in mind that I am new to IM, there may be other apps out there that do the same....

    I have always liked FreeWarePalm. They have all kinds of Palm Programs and they are free, of course. Some are good, some great and some are not so good. Check it out ... you'll be able to find just about anything ...

    As for T-Mobile and the Treo 650, I've heard conflicting reports. I've heard that we won't be carrying it because we can't unload Treo 600's to save our lives (in all honesty, not the 600's fault. Many corporate customers think only the Blackberry can help them, and the iPaq also offers a very high-end solution for only $100 more). Hence the sales contest I won. the contest was that if, over two months, you sold 5 Treo's you'd get one free. This is an obvious attempt to clear out our supplies, as well as the recent drop in price by about $100 (although that seemed to be more to make way for the iPaq H6315 than to clear inventory channels). There are two other major signposts that indicate that T-Mobile will pickup the Treo 650. Number one, we've carried damn near every other Treo that has come out, and it's served us well. Number two, we've commited to an EDGE launch this year, and it would seem that the 650 would ake a nice fit as an EDGE device that's shipping. I imagine that after all the problems that every other carrier had with 600 (T-Mobile waited a long time to pick that up) and the problems that are cropping up now with the 650, coupled with the fact that T-Mobile's (after 600 type issues, and the fiasco with Motorola's V300 and V600) handset reliability department DOES NOT OK anything without exstensive testing... (note the Skick 2's reliability vs. Skick 1 and Skick Color; motorola v180 vs v66). We'll see a T-Mobile Treo 650, but let's see a GSM 650 first.

    As for your (gacajun) concern about 600 reliability, like I said, we've got the latest 600's in, although I haven't checked firmware or hardware versions, and have had very little in the way of exchanges and returns or complaints.

    If you're a T-Mobile subscriber and you'd like to see a Treo 650 give our customer care department a call, and LET THEM KNOW. They have the ability to file tickets that go to marketing (right now they're testing the waters for the Razr V3). Tell them you want it, and you want it bad enough to go to whatever carrier offers it.

    Thank you all for the feedback, and don't forget, you don't have to limit it to just software essentials either. Recommend a case you like, or if you think the GPS is a must have, let me know, I'm still learning so much about these devices.
