    This update is awesome! Not only did it resolve my volume issues, memory utilization, etc, but it also resolved an issue with my wife's sex-drive! Way to go palmOne, I'm one happy sexed-up customer.

    I guess I was a little hasty as I was referring to the AT&T GSM update. The CDMA update looks awesome!

    It is not a GSM update. It is a Cingular update only

    You'll have to reinstall. Don't know how well it works after though...(haven't tried it with the new ROM yet.)

    Let's get something clear: The update WORKS great, but PalmOne should not be praised in any way for fixing a device that they KNEW was this buggy before release. There are a myriad of issues PalmOne needs to resolve that a patch won't fix (I know, not exactly theforum). First and foremost, their customer support and technical support. Their Level 2 had me play with my system registry (after I told him I wanted nothing to do with changing anything on it) and caused a permanent error on my new laptop. I had to go all the way up to corporate customer service (let me know if you need the number) and all they did was offer me a 25 dollar gift certificate at the Palm Store, not the Treo Store...does that make sense? They admit they caused the error on my computer but will now do nothing except continue to have an engineer (third one this time) work with me. They are authorized to do nothing esle. I have already filed a lawsuit against them for the damage to my computer and have received their records stating they admit to causing the error on my computer that they cannot fix it (hotsynch looking for a notifier file "packinst.dll"). I'll let you guys know how that goes. At the very least, it will cost them more cheddar to deal with my lawsuit than to have done something for me to begin with. I'm an attorney so there are no fees other than filing fees to me which I am seeking in my complaint. I didn note, Olerr error that many of us have had, some have fixed it, some have used Chapura Pocket Mirror Standard XT, like myself to fix the issue. The matter is currently under investigation according to the website. A flatout admission to a design defect that could prove costly to palm in the event of a class action suit.

    In sum, I am happy to have the update, which is great, except my Bluetooth headset requires a button push to activate the microphone as to just an automatic pick up. But to praise palm for fixing glaring errors upon release of the phone is like thanking a doctor for removing the scalpal he left in you after an appendectomy.

    In addition, Tundy needs to get with the program. If he isn't c*rs*ng, he's lying.

    I have had my Sprint Treo 650 for two months now. Love it and have had none of the listed problems I have read about in this forum in regards to resets, poor quality and such. It worked right out of the box and has kept working without any conflicts.

    This update 1.08 certainly worked for me. I was configured down to 5.7mb of available free memory prior to the update. I now have 11.7mb free!! That is a 6mb gain!! In other words: I went from "18mb" of memory used --- down to "12mb" used. Sounds like 33% saved to me and a full remedy to "lost" memory between the Treo 600 and the Treo 650.

    Best Palm I have ever had. (And I do harken back to the Pilot days.)

    Cheers!

    Incredibly happy with the update and the 650 in general. The update was pretty easy and increased my memory from 11.5 to 15.3MB. The phone app is snappier, the Bluetooth quality is better and the BT Volume is way up with the Jabra 250.

    Nice going P1

    I disagree, tho' only a little bit. They should be praised for finally releasing the patch. But we should not forget that they released a product prematurely in the first place, and everyone should keep that firmly in mind the next time around. And we should not forget that there are still issues people are having and that further updates should be released, and in a timely fashion.

    Can somebody tell me if this update was for Sprint or Cingular. I did a firmware update my cingular phone and it did not free up any memory or provide any performance gain. It did, however, cause my perfectly soild, non-resetting 650 to have major problems. I figured out that allot of it had to do with BackupBuddyVFS and Installmanager. Everything is solid now, and BackupBuddy will not be reinstalled until they have an update. Thanks!

    Still not buying one because 32MB is a joke. Didn't they promise this update any day back in december? I'm glad the 650 is finally usable 5 months after it shipped, but I agree with those who think Palm is being overpraised for finally getting it sort of right.

    Also, is some of the free ram because browser caches are now empty or does restoring after the update restore those too? I often gain several megs after a hard reset and resote but it evaporates after I sync avantgo again.

    They never specified a time frame, just that there would be an upgrade to resolve (at that time) the NVFS issues.

    I think the cache is restored after the update. I cleared mine last night and then surfed for a while to see if there was any difference, and my available memory only changed by the size of my cache, where before it was a much larger number.

    Nothing personal, but this is one of those kind of quotes that really bug me. The Treo 650, warts and all, was truly usable BEFORE the upgrade. If you could use ZLauncher or PowerRun, there were no real memory problems, now it is even better (can't wait for our upgrade). My sound quality has been fine (admittedly GSM) and no random resets, etc.

    I know some of you have had these problems, but this constant whining that the original 650 is/was a POS is over the top. It was already much more than "sort of right" to begin with.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.
