    THE UNOFFICIAL TREO 650 WIKI: FINALLY THE CLEAR AND CONCISE MANUAL FOR BOTH NEWBS AND PROS.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (For the definition of a wiki, click here.)

    Please help organize this outline until everybody's content and THEN we'll work on the details. Details are defined as the very LAST level, which would include lengthy writing of a couple sentences.

    Suggestions for apps and accessories that are related to the 650 should be suggested....obvious ones are Chatter, Versamail, Verichat, ProfileCare, VolumeCare, FieldPlus, etc. Remember, though...this is strictly organization level.

    Thanks.

    This is going to be an enormous Wiki.

    A good place to start for content is the book: Now you know Treo and then go look at the online tutorial on Palm's website at this location:
    http://www.palmone.com/us/support/gu...rial_index.htm

    This tutorial is a pretty good effort by Palm to document all the basics on the Sprint Treo 650.

    The GSM version is here:

    It really shouldn't be that bad once it's all organized....the outline/design is usually well more than 80% of the work; it's time consuming. Each (maybe multiple) detail(s) could be assigned to one person on this board and it could be copy & pasted within a single day.

    Those links are soo terribly designed though...you shouldn't have to click on a separate link to get to a different section (that only has one or two sentences, no less). It should just be links of the outline up top, with each link pointing to its respective section down below. That way you can easily scan by pressin' [pg] up/down, or scroll wheel, or whatever, as soon as you find your general help section.

    And they don't have good info and tips on the phone. At least nothing compared to what the veterans of this board know. If we could collect THAT knowledge instead of just the basic manual....we'd help out a lotta people.

    Soo...do people have any suggestions on the organization of this puppy, or am I supposed to do it all myself? I'll do all the outlining if I need to, it's just going to take longer.

    Knock yourself out! Besides didn't the mods close and lock this thread on you yesterday? Why you trying to start it back up?http://discussion.treocentral.com/im...s/confused.gif

    They moved/closed it yesterday because it got off topic like it's starting to do right now. As long as the thread continues to contribute to the wiki....it's not moving anywhere.

    It certainly is about more than hardware...but, this is a wiki for the 650. There is no other forum that it belongs; if you guys haven't noticed, this thread gets magnitudes of traffic over the other forums.

    What belongs in this wiki is the issue at hand. If you feel as if something should be removed, by all means...suggest it!

    Now...back on topic. I'll be editing this as much as my knowledge will provide later tonight...and HOPEFULLY you guys will comment sometime soon.

    Thanks for the tip....THAT's what we're lookin' for, people!

    I always thought the mobile subdomain redirected to the treo subdomain...but, I guess not.

    If this thread can stay focused on 650 issues, this is the best place for it. If enough information is gathered, it can serve as a starting point to an official TC Wiki.

    Perhaps we can have one thread around here that stays focused and on-topic?...
