    I would like to know if it is possible to password protect the palm section of the Treo 650, and just keep the phone section accessible? Sorry if I overlooked this on the forum somewhere or in the manual, but I am having trouble finding out about this. Thanks.

    Geez, if this is true, how lame. I just thought that there would be a way to password protect the palm section. I don't really like the security feature which password protects the whole thing. It should have an option to password protect the palm section, or the phone section or both. I hope someone, somewhere, somehow, comes up with a way to do this.

    I think you can do it with a custom launcher (like ZLAuncher)
    Just put the Phone app in an unprotected tab, and the rest in a protected tab...

    See if it works for you, and inform us please...

    There really isn't a "palm section" and a "phone section" -- one of the key features of the Treo is that it is an integrated device.

    Correct... The phone is just software within the palm

    Sounds like it would, but to be honest with you I like my original Palm OS.

    Well it might be, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to password protect the palm section when within the phone app. It should have something similiar to the program applock. Anyway, thanks for your help guys.

    I would also like this ability, I just don't think it exist. I haven't tried "applock". That might work

    I could swear I recently saw a PDA/phone that does this but I can't remember which one. Maybe the Blackberry 7100? Can anyone confirm?

    applock will be your best bet. You can lock everything that is in the palm section. Give it try.........
