    I previously had a Kyocera Smartphone and I have some questions about applications...

    1. Is there SMS capability on the Treo 300?

    2. Is there anyway to use Web Clipping Apps on the Treo? I read something about some application that enables the Palm apps on the Treo. Does anyone know?

    3. Can I get to AOL Mail through the Treo? I guess I used to use the AOL mail pqa on the Kyocera.

    4. Is Yahoo messenger supported by the Treo? I have not been able to find it if it is.

    I just loaded Xiino and find it much superior to Blazer...although I did like the bookmark system on Blazer. And Treo mail seems to be working fine.

    All in all, I am pleased. Now I have to figure how how much data I am likely to use and whether I can afford it.

    1. You have inbound SMS (look for the app called...get this...SMS). You do not need data service to utilize this. For some alternatives that allow outbound, do a little searching thru the forum here (use SMS as a keyword). We've only been posting heavily for eight days so it should be pretty easy.

    2. Yes, you can do webclipping. There are a few threads on this that were posted to just today.

    3. Yes, you can get AOL mail w/out using a PQA. AOL has a palm-native app. Go here and don't select the Palm VII version. Obviously that's the PQA.

    4. There was a Palm-native version of Yahoo Messenger, but reports this week is that the version is no longer working w/ some of Yahoo's server upgrades. A Palm-native version isn't available, however you can use the Blazer or Xiino web browsers' to access the mobile phone version at

    Pardon my denseness.....

    The AOL software I downloaded is asking for a dialup that what I am supposed to using?

    When I go to using Xiino, I get an error message saying "Zero Sized Reply". It actually worked using Blazer.

    I was hoping to find a easy to use SMS app for the Treo...I guess you are saying that there isn't one.

    I loaded two PQAs today and neither would execute--one from the Baltimore Sun and one from the NY Times. I will keep trying.

    I downloaded the Applet also, and it wants a dial up connection.

    I believe that you have to dial into AOL directly using the application before you can access your mail. I have no idea if the Vision thing from Sprint will work with AOL. AOL supports the app so you may want to contact them for some more info.
