    Hello AOL fans,

    I just downloaded the newest version of AOL for the Treo650

    http://www.handango.com/aolsoftware/...oductId=159256

    and all seems to be working well, finally I can remove versamail from the device and use this software for my mail.

    I realize we have to pay $19.99, again, but it is most definitely the way to go. Remember, this is not software written by the folks at AOL, it is software written by our friends at Handango, so they have to make a nickel somehow.

    It has been on my T650 for just a half hour, if you want I will post a review of the software in a few days to let you know if the problems have disapeared.

    I have not been using versamail to review sent emails, or write new emails, for around 2 months now, I have been using it only to retrieve new email and reply to the new emails, and have not had a freeze or reset since, but would still prefer to use this new software.

    Thanks Handango ,

    Jeff

    A few more questions:

    1) Does it have full 5-way support (eg. navigating through the mailbox, main screen, buddy list, composing email, or chatting)?
    2) Can it run in the background (while you're in another app)?

    It's written by AOL, and yes you can chat, write, view, from your AOL account, like your P.C. It was great with the 600, but I now I have Snapper+Verichat so I guess I won't need it, oh wait, my wife likes to check her email from my 650, so I guess AOL will earn another 20 bucks from me....

    As AOL doesnt support the software, it was my impression that they dont write it, can anyone show proof of who writes it? Try to get help from AOL customer service, and they will tell you they dont write or service this software. Sorry for the rebuttal, but that is my experience.........

    Well, it's not Handango. They're just a retailer. It is an AOL product.

    Defo an AOL programme, and they do not support any feedback, once they are happy with it, that's yer lot, and they must love it when Palm change their products, a simple tweak of the software and they are cashing it in again, AOL and M$ are so good at this crap software regeneration, but unless we vote with our feet we are stuck with it... money for old rope!!! To confrim that it is an AOL programme, contact them using Keyword and ask if they have upgraded their programme for the 650 and they will tell you it is available now for download... anyway, IMAP is fine if you remember to delete your old email from PC otherwise 650 will keep downloading it and bumping up your GPRS usage (if u r GSM user)

    So, the big questions, why wont AOL support it if they write it, and why do we have to pay for it?

    When I was under the impression the folks at handango made it I kinda said "oh well", but now, this makes me angry.......
