    My wife just got a new Treo 650 for work (I'm jealous, I only have a 600!) and I am trying to help set it up. For various and sundry reasons[*] I don't want to sync it with any computer just yet. HOWEVER I want to establish a hotsync name so I can register some of the software I have been beaming to it. Is there any way to do this without syncing? Is there any danger in doing so?

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
    .[*] I don't want to hotsync because we are waiting for a CD-ROM for my wife's laptop to install software, and my computer has Treo 600 sync software. The 650 came with a BIG BOLD notice not to sync with old software.

    Give the free app, "UserName" a try.

    The description says "Allows you to maintain a different username than your HotSync ID." I'm not completely sure that's what I wanted but I'll give it a try. Worst case I'll have to hard-reset and clear memory which at this early stage is no big deal.

    Unfortunately it didn't work. I got the message "You must perform at least one normal HotSync operation before you can use this utility".

    I infer that if this program can't do it until after a hotsync, it's because I HAVE to Hotsync so I'm stuck.

    you can try Changename from or MultiuserHack,i think I got that one from,if not just google and you'll find it..i used both and they don't require a hotsync to work, so you should be all set!!

    Thanks to all for your help!

    LJJ's "Changename" suggestion finally did the trick. This is pretty nice maybe we'll just NEVER do a hotsync and have the Treo be a standalone device. Afterall the computer it would have to sync with is a PC running MSoft.
