    I considered returning my 800w in the first 2 weeks, but after getting more familiar with it and making a few changes, I'm really glad I kept it. Works flawless with exchange and has not locked up or crashed one time. What are your top 10 or so fixes/tweaks/edits/improvements that made your 800w more user friendly?
    Might help save the newcomers some time making their 800w more usable out of the box.

    These worked well on my 800w:
    (summarized, details are in the tweaks thread)

    -Change red phone key to turn off screen without going to home screen
    -PIE tweak for page scrolling, Y for page up, H for page down
    -HTML start page in PIE listing clickable favorites
    -Disable initiate call beep
    -Disable charger connect sound
    -Disable speed dial dtmf beep
    -Repeating text alerts-no more missed text msgs from the family
    -Increase max # of characters in text message and/or increase # of messages sent
    -Increase ring volume by changing "ring" category to "ring preview"
    -Assign a key to open send new email using AEB Plus.
    -Assign a key to go to PIE using AEB Plus
    -Note2Self program to replace MS voice notes

    I wanted to see if we could get a short summary of useful fixes, the tweaks thread has a lot of info, but it takes a while to read it.
    Maybe I can list post numbers.

    I added links to the posts, there are many tweaks, I was just listing the one's that were most effective for me. On second thought we could take all of the tweaks and list them in the top post with links for easy access??

    these are awesome. I was gonna post in your original "reg tweak" thread, but dint think anyone wud notice.
    one of the problems with such a thread is that once the thread becomes a conversation medium, it will be a few pages before anyone finds this useful. your original thread has so much good info but i dont think new people or old are gonna go thru the whole thread.

    can we update a common document with our best tweaks instead of having to sort through a thread.

    i created a spread sheet thru google with full access to all.

    Anyone can edit this document WITHOUT LOGGING IN at:

    http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?k...JlpFczdg&hl=en

    dont know how to give universal access with the google documents and hence the spread sheet. I did the same with the list of working programs with limited success as few seem to read the first post with the link.

    my two cents if it actually has to be useful to people.
    Thanks.

    Rex.

    Why not put it on the TreoCentral Wiki?
    Visor Deluxe => Visor Pro => Visor Prism => Treo 300 => Treo 600 => Treo 650 => Treo 755p<hr/>
