    Well, if you must flee away to another forum, fine. But make sure when you click your bookmark that you're going to MTDN (or wherever it may be) instead of Treo Central. It won't ask if you're sure you want to go there. When you click the bookmark, it'll just take you there...maybe you might want to inform MS, or Firefox about the flaw in their software...
    Fortunately the user interface for both IE and Firefox are not as clumsy as the user interface is for sending text messages. My bookmarks and favorites list names of sites, and do not flip to IP addresses before actually loading the site.

    Plus the analogy is erroneous - usually you don't load up a string of different web sites and hit "go" to visit them all. This is just another attempt by you to troll the thread and to and continue to lower the quality of these discussions with nonsensical, adolescent and puerile analogies. Just the fact that you typed this shows that you have no interest in reading, undersanding, comprehending and helping - only to toss out your condescending and snotty attitude.

    Who's the troll?? You're the one who posted a nonsensical problem to begin with. Sorry nobody here has placed you on a pedestal for pointing out the obvious. The quality of discussion was low to begin with.

    This forum has ignore lists??? Cool! I wish I knew that earlier when TurdyCentral was trolling the boards.

    Seriously dude, the main reason you're getting zero sympathy is because you did something stupid and then turned around and blamed the software. As the saying goes, "A poor workman blames his tools."

    I'll grant you it might be nice if the app showed names instead of numbers, but ranting and railing against it doesn't win you much support around here, as you've discovered. A well-reasoned and calmly-stated question or argument is far more likely to bring the desired results.

    Just a hint for next time.

    I've seen some far afield threads before, but this one makes the Twilight Zone look like reality....
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Yeah. You should have. Most of us are condesceding ***-holes. My Dad had a problem with the Treo I sold him last night, and I told him to read the manual. You expect me to treat you better than my own father? You are high.
    Go here if you're tired of being .

    I am trying to figure out who to side with...on the one hand the sort of problem we are discussing sounds like something I would do. Blaming someone else is most certainly what I would do.
    On the other hand, Insertion seems to be winning the verbal sparring match, but he has a monkey...er...orangutan...for his avatar.
    Still, he dissed Nascar, that counts for monster points with me. Perhaps the silliest sport in America is Nascar. It is also the most popular spectator sport in America, which doesn't bode well for the Republic...
    Yeah, I guess I side with Insertion.

    What do you mean you don't want me on your side?!

    It's dodgeball all over again!

    1) Absolutely NONE of these screenshots show the problem with this APP. They do not illustrate the problem that I have verbally described in this thread numerous times. If I have the time to figure out which app to load and take a screenshot I will. (I've learned from this thread not to ask for help in this area from this bunch.) Several of you have provided verbal descriptions and analogies that do not match. While I am reading the manual and the documentation - you (plural) are not reading my messages or taking the time to digest them. This community is definitely not making the list of communities that provides good, positive help and advice to users.

    2) I'm a little bored with defending myself and what I did. All these claims that I have ranted and raved and that I am blaming the phone are completely erroneous. I have accepted blame. I have stated repeatedly that the purpose of this thread was to warn others about a flaw in the user interface that could lead to a very embarrassing mistake. I have stated repeatedly that I was looking for advice for a replacement app that has a better user interface. I have stated repeatedly that I was expecting a positive discourse about the above.

    3) None of the above numerous messages address any of my concerns. The screenshots taken do not illustrate what I have verbally illustrated numerous times. The descriptions of how the app works that several have typed do not match what I have described several times as a weakness in the user interface of this application.

    I think that the complaint about "reading the manual" or whatever needs to be turned inward. The users of this forum are not reading my messages, are not helping, are only criticizing based on misreads, incomplete reads, or flat-out denial. This thread is reminding me of one of those threads I discovered on Gamespot about the Nintendo DS vs the Sony PSP. I was entertained for about 10 minutes and that was it.

    Please, continue to talk about X when I talk about Y and continue to pat yourselves on the back - this must be of some entertainmment for you as you (plural) have completely twisted what I have said and have not listened to any of it.

    I am far more disappointed in the users of this forum than I am in the device itself. Please continue to entertain yourselves as a bunch of fraternity boys picking on someone in high school - I really dont care and I doubt that I will return.
