    ...and that was and example of it cutting short a much longer post, just because it felt like it.

    I tried to say...When I turn the phone portion off, reset the Treo, or switch batteries, the Treo 650 forgets the proper time. Does anyone else experience this?

    Word. I discovered that as well. I think I read someone's recommendation to disable it, so I did, then the time was off causing my alarm to be off and me to oversleep.

    I have not found that using the network time creates problems for me so I left it on.

    Where do you go in the settings in order to select the network time, or is it a default setting?

    It's under preferences --> time & date.

    I have network time off on my CDMA treo, and it keeps time just fine. I shut the phone down every night, and I"ve probably removed the battery once or twice, and it keeps perfect time. I have an app called NetClock which accesses an NTP server and compares the time of my Treo with the 'official' time, and it's never been off by even a minute.

    My Treo definitely does not keep time, over the span of a few days to week it can start to become up to 30 minutes off. This is driving me crazy.

    Should I just enable network time ( I'm on cingular gsm ) ? I never did because of the reported issues but it seems that is only with CDMA...or no?

    I greatly appreciate any insight to this

    Try enabling it, and if it works, leave it on.

    Mine's always been on and I've never had an issue that I could trace back to that.

    It sure would be nice if it would at least sync to your desktop when you HotSync like my PDA2K does with ActiveSync. I turned mine off due to reports here and it is off every day when it locks up or something else causes a reset. Palm devices used to be very reliable for alarms and it is a shame there are issues with it.

    Try TimeCopy http://vons.free.fr/palm/. It checks your clock every time you synch and will update if it's drifting too much (you can configure how much is too much)

    BackUp Buddy Pro comes with TimeSync which syncs your Treo clock. there's also a few standalone freware jobs like TimeSyncXT. I would expect yanking the battery to cause a time reset like it does when you unplug your VCR. I have never experienced the other time losses tho.

    CDMA

    Ever since that very fine post (now a sticky) I keep the time thingy (how's that for scientific) off. While I'm not smart enough to say that was causing certain issues, I can say I have little to no issues now (and prior t0 the firm ware)

    Please note: My spelling sucks and I'm to lazy to check it.
