    Okay, I just bought my Treo 650 from Cingular and I have a few questions:

    1. is there anything on the CD (that came with the phone) that I need to install on my computer?

    2. just how do I go about installing programs on my 650?

    3. has anyone been able to use a MMC for storage on this phone? the reason I'm asking is because I have already ordered a SD card but it wont be here until sometime next week and I was wondering if I could use my MMC for the time being?

    4. what are some of the best choices when it comes to a carrying case for this phone?

    5. my phone came with the 1.05 firmware and I was thinking about updating to the 1.23 version which supposedily fixes the earpiece volume issue and a few others as well. but I dont really know how to install the newer firmware. can anyone gimme a quick tip or two as to how I do this?

    -Thanks for any input.

    Oz... The best thing I did when I got my Treo was search around the forums here... They pretty much have every answer you are looking for... I cannot tell you how much I have learned from some of the people on here. I know it seems like a lot to look through, but if you really love your phone and want it to work at its peak condition... search around and you will definitely educate yourself on the T650.

    thanks for the reply.

    I just read the 13+ pages on updating the FW but I havent seen any exact posts on how to do it.

    I dont have an SD memory card yet but I do have an MMC and I was wondering if I could use that?

    Let's see if I can answer your questions.

    1) The most critical thing you need to install is Palm Desktop and all the Palm programs on the CD so you can sync your Treo with your computer.

    2) You can download programs off the Internet which are usually in the form of a .zip file. Take the .prc and sometime .pdb files out of the archives and click on them. It should put them in Quick Install which will sync to your Treo next time you HotSync.

    3) I can't answer that, never tried.

    4) Take a look at the TreoCentral store, they have great choices of cases.

    5) I can't tell you step-by-step how to install the Firmware, because I don't have a Cingular phone. But if you keep searching around you should find it.

    An MMC card will work perfectly in your Treo.
