    I am a newbie. And I already got it wired thanks in big part to treo central and the users here. I bought my first PDA 7 months ago - a Sony CLIE th-55. Sweet, but I would hold it to my head and proclaim "if it were only a phone also" I sold the CLIE on EBAY, and bought the 650 as soon as they would sell me one. I read about peoples concerns about memory, and looked at other phones, but ultimately, I bit the bullet and got the TREO 650, and I have not looked back since. What a *****en phone!!!

    Here's what I am doing with my treo so far:

    *got 1gb sd card at frys for $69.00 ($49.00 if i ever get my rebate)
    *downloaded a ringtone from sprint (it's just OK)
    *got a stereo adapter for my senheiser headphones
    *loaded 300mb of mp3 on sd card
    *took a video with the camera and sent it via email
    *same with photos
    *make calls
    *beamed a file
    *surf internet
    *recieve emails with attachments
    *loaded work spreadsheets and .doc files and use with docs to go (rad!)
    *playing chess with chroma games
    *playing dope-wars
    *playing warfare inc (wow)
    *playing tetris
    *loaded Zlauncher - and put all the extras on the SD card (Zlauncher is SOOO cool!)
    *loaded p-tunes - now listen to favorite streaming internet music anywhere anytime
    *Loaded MMplayer - ripped some dvd's with smatripper, encoded with virtual dub, and now watching FULL LENGTH cinema on my treo. I can put three or four FULL movies on the sd card Currently have "meet the parents", and a surf flick, and an off-road movie. and yes, it will do porn also.
    *Installed "card export" Reccomend Highly! mounts the sd card on your PC in "my computer" as if it were a removable disk - uses usb. I can transfer HUGE files (sorta) quickly to the sdcard with this.

    I am sure there is more that I have left out, but I just got to say that this is one hell of a machine. I love it, everybody should have one.

    I plan to try soon:
    *bluetooth features - i don't have anything thats bluetooth now - but I want a portable keyboard and a headset.
    *RF remote control software
    and MORE!

    In case anybody is wondering, I still have almost 9mb left on built-in memory.

    Only problems I have experienced so far is a couple of random freezes, and soft resets. The battery life is VERY SHORT if the phone is on and looking for a network, ie. out of range. If you are driving in the middle of the desert, turn the phone off.

    I am also wondering about a couple of Apps:

    looking for:
    *wysiwyg type html editor, I use Dreamweaver MX on the PC and Mac.
    *art and photo editing program(s) I use p-shop and illustrator on PC and Mac.
    *financial software, I use quicken on PC.
    *any internet based multiplayer game(s)

    Thanks again to all here, and please feel free to share your thoughts or experiences.

    Look for Pocket Quicken from Landware. Not sure if it's 650 compatible yet, though.
