    My back up device is a 700wx. My family calls it "beat down." I use it when working outside or doing any kind of physical work. On day 2 of owning my $579.99 HTC Touch Pro I dropped it. It took a very hard fall. Got the Treo so that wouldn't happen again.

    I have a bunch of apps running on Treo since I am trying to make the features compariable to my Touch Pro. I have Sirius XM radio, TCPMP Video bundle for YouTube, SKTools, Resco Explorer, Opera Mini, Java Midlet for Opera, Treo Alerts, SPB Back Up, SPB Mobile Shell, SPB PhoneSuite and more.

    With all of this and limited memory (actually have 38MB free) I wanted to make it snappier. So does XCPU really overclock the CPU for faster speeds.

    It does, and it's noticeable. I also remember measuring it with a couple of different apps to verify it. You'll pay for it with some reduced battery life, but if you have the 2400mAh battery on the 700wx, you've got plenty to spare. Of course there are some concerns about damaging the CPU, i.e. overheating it, but haven't heard anything conclusive about it.

    I recall that Mal preferred different software to do this, can't remember offhand what it was.

    Between xCPUScalar and Ebag's trimmed ROM, it should pretty much fly.

    Thanks, good to know. I do not have it turned all the way up to 624. I have it on 512. Seems to be pretty snappy.

    This is a trial from handago. I really do not want buy it unless the results are worth it. I wonder if Mal's program is free. I hate spending money on a 2005 device. However I cannot kill this thing it is such a work horse. If Palm had this quality in the 800 they could have sold them for 3.5 years like this one.

    Is it really worth switching between the 2 phones? How long does it take to swap (call Sprint?) Or is the 700WX a second line?

    No need to call you can do ESN swaps online. It takes about 3 minutes. Sign into your account. Next to your device you will see "Activate a phone." Following the intructions. The first time it may take a bit but once both phones have the MSID MID programed once its only a matter of clicking continue until it says "Your device has been activated."

    Not a second line I bounce between both my phones 2-3 times per week. On work days I use the Treo and weekends I use the Touch Pro. I may add a BlackBerry to the rotation or a Centro just because.

    I could never get it to work at 624, it would just lock up.

    Here's the one he recommended (SpeedBooster):

    VibrantRedGT,

    I'm trying this with a new backup 700wx I just got. I get a very scary message at the last screen of the process saying "Because you are changing your plan in the middle of your billing cycle, you may see pro-rated charges...", etc. Of course I'm not changing my plan; my current plan and insurance are listed, but I'm wondering if you (or anyone else who switches on a regular basis) have had billing problems switching between two power vision phones with an unlimited data plan (I'm on Everything Data 900). With Verizon an ESN swap was just that - nothing ever came up about a plan change.

    Sorry to hijack, I saw your post here and I was curious about your specific situation.

    You are correct, if one device requires a certain data plan and vice versa then is can become tricky. I have a Simply Everything plan which means I can change to anything without incurring additional data charges because the plan covers it (even BlackBerry BIS). I have not seen a plan change message while ever doing an ESN swap.

    Which phones are you trying to use?

    Thanks for the reply. Switching between an 800w and a 700wx, so there should be no difference. I took a chance, went ahead and tried it, and it seems fine. My plan is the same and my contract end date hasn't been changed. I switched back and everything is the same.

    Sorry again for hijacking the thread and thank you for your response.

    No problem. Now that your phones are programmed with your MSID and stuff it only takes a minute to swap ESN's.
