    Similar to turning off the wireless mode while on a plane or something, is there a program that will turn the pda mode off, so that if i want to use the phone but not use any of the pda functions, like the contacts or calendar i can do that?
    thanks

    Well...either it is on, or it is off (rather suspended).

    If you just want to use the phone, press the Green Phone button. Press the Red when you're done.

    The only way I know to turn off "just" the pda functions is to.....ta dah! Buy a cell phone!!

    Sorry...had to do it. For what purpose would you be wanting to do this?

    From my understanding of the Treo: battery feeds PDA, PDA feeds phone...you cannot have the Battery feed the Phone, its either phone on or off, while PDA mode remains. If you want you can take out the battery completly

    I'm guessing the OP doesn't want to be interrupted by alarms, etc, while on the phone. Which begs the question, if it's not important to be alerted, why set an alarm in the first place? But perhaps there's a third-party app that provides the option of suppressing any alerts while on a call, and popping them up at the end of the call.

    I think this goes back to the whole Gartner review...is the Treo a phone with a pda or a pda with a phone?

    Based on the power options, pda always on - phone off/on - I'd say it's a pda with a phone

    Or maybe Treoguy1234 just wanted to see who would come out of the woodwork on this one. . . . .

    It's a pda w/ a phone. (See my signature line for my historical bias.)

    jetkins in post 6 probably has the reason . . . . and has anybody run across such an application to delay alarms and alerts while on a phone call? Sounds like a winner.

    And I'll second using Treoguard to surpress alarms while on the phone. One time in a conversation with sudden LOUD interruption is enough to realize that you don't want alarms going off in your ear (and the ear on the other end).

    it does seem that treo guard takes care of the alarm problem, which was the issue to begin with. I am often on the phone and then in the middle of a call it beeps or the alarms goes off, it is kind of annoying.
    Thanks for the idea

    If the alarm is turned off during the phone call, what hapens to the alarm? Otherwise, the appointment will be missed if not reminded, no? Does it go off when the call is finished?

    The alarm will sound once the call is over, I think. At least, I'm pretty sure that is what's happened the few times I've been on the phone when an alarm sounded.

    Ok, thanks. I'll have to test it.
