    Okay ... Blanket Statement Coming

    "I have never experienced a device releated reset!"

    ... I have however experienced resets when testing software. After I figured out which software was so-so and learned to live without it, I don't crash anymore. My phone gets lots of use playing mp3's, audio books, playing games, sending emails, sms's and as a phone. Its the ultimate organizer (because you never leave it at home) and time killer (because it looks like your working when you play).

    Other than that, the thing is like a tank. My 2 year old used it to dig a hole in the back yard before I found it. Other than scratches to the silvery bezel around the screen, no problem, wipe it off and kept using it.

    The two disappointments I have had with the device... the Audio jack has gone out twice. The first time the P key also stopped working. Of course the first time was also the unit that had a hole dug with it, so I was happy when the Audio stopped on that unit.

    I'd have to agree that your post is refuse.

    I mean, since his doesn't reset at all, everything else must be "bullS**t." How can you argue with that kind of data?! Whatever you do, don't believe a word of any of the experiences from, for example, this thread.

    Off-topic a bit, but have you guys heard about this new thing going around? It's called sarcasm and it's bigger than Jesus AND The Beatles.

    Y'know little bug, I'm picturing you as the Zell Miller character Will Forte does on SNL. Lighten up or you'll blow a blood vessel.

    lol. ya know, this guy has occasional flashes of silence that make his conversation brilliant.

    you and your sarcasm actually DO always make people laugh, otterman, especially when you leave the room.

    anyway, I like your approach, otterman. Now let's see about your departure.

    If a few thousand units out of one million sold, have reset problems . It's not a big issue.

    Even though I have had a Treo 650 for sometime, I had this same debate with myself. Right now, I carry two devices (my Treo and my Creative Zen Micro [MP3 player]) and I am fine with that. But when I considered that if I had a Lifedrive, I would have to carry three devices with me, which pushes it a little over the top. Right now, I can just carry my Treo with me for quick trips, and it is not a big problem carrying my MP3 player as well.

    So, if you have any type of seperate music playback device other than your Treo that you carry around on a regular basis (or any other 3rd device), and you are trying to decide whether to get a Lifedrive--cell phone or not, that could be a deciding factor.

    I'd love to hear what you have to say when you get one of those "few thousand units." I'm guessing your 3rd sentence would change drastically.

    But as long as you're happy with yours, all is right with the world. I feel better already.

    Resets do happen but not that often and I can't think of another phone I could live with that would replace my Treo 650 (even with an occasional reset). It's a choice just like the one Prankstar has to make about which device he wants. Nothing is ever perfect so you pick what you like most. Obviously you no longer choose to have a Treo which is your right, I just don't understand why you want to hijack someone elses thread to vent your frustration?

    I had a bunch of reset probs when I first setup my Treo - but since then, it's been excellent
    BLUETOOTH!!!!

    Wrong assumptions, dogma and misstatements aside, I didn't "hijack" the thread. I threw out a sarcastic remark and a few people got bent out of shape about it. It could have - and probably should have - been ignored.

    As for that "nothing's perfect" gibberish, I don't expect perfection in anything. All I expect in a consumer product is that it does what I need (based on what's advertised) and that I don't have to deal with its issues on a daily basis. Of all the other Palm devices I own (4), and have owned, my Treo is the only one that frustrates me almost daily (spontaneous resets, crashing on incoming calls, inability to recognize a phone number stored in Contacts as a contact, etc...). And apparently I'm not alone. I'm glad you and many others don't have this problem (no sarcasm), but just as you can glow about yours, we can groan about ours - ultimately, in the hope that Palm reads these boards and will correct the flaws.

    Maybe, just maybe, if the vast majority of the people with Treo's don't have extensive reset problems, the problem IS you! Not physically you, but the configuration you insist on running on your device. My experience is that almost all of the "flaws" you expect Palm to fix are problems with 3rd party software, and the responsibility of those software vendors to fix. Or for you to fix by not using those products. Or, if the problems continue to occur even without third party software, then get the phone replaced.

    But it seems that instead of trying to do a little research, both here on TC and on your own, to deal with the issues, you'd rather just complain about Palm.

    Fine, feel free. But don't expect a lot of sympathy here.

    There is no sarcasm on the interenet, the routers block it.

    I guess I have been lucky...all my crashing so far was my fault, and easly corrected by restoring my backup files.

    Dont think posting here will help much outside of general venting...but hey, stranger things have happoned.
