Any Problems Syncing Treo 850w to Dell E6400?
I am able to connect this Treo 850w to just about any workstation except for a Dell E6400 laptop. Sprint and Palm both say they have not heard of any issues yet so I figured I'd ask here.
When I connect the Palm device to any USB port on the E6400 laptop you can see the new drive show up under Explorer, but then it quickly goes away again. Then it comes back... then it goes away... over and over again and you really cannot do anything with it.
I have tried logging in as different users to the laptop and tried safe mode, both produced no change. Again, the Palm connects to other workstations and laptops without an issue, and I can connect any other phone/USB device to this laptop without a problem so I'm starting to ...
Help needed...multiple 800w issues
Has anyone who has the Treo 800W had any issues with the phone? I have been through 5 within 3 weeks and am beginning to think that another phone may be the way to go for meâ€¦
I have had issues with my contacts being deleted and the screen going blank ever few hours and not responding to anything but a soft resetâ€¦Has anyone else experienced these issues or something similar?
The people at the Sprint store have been great and swapped it out when I go back but I feel terrible that they keep having to do thatâ€¦
I appreciate itâ€¦
Data Card and freezing woes
1) My 8GB HD Data Card frequently becomes "unreadable" beyond one or two directory levels. I go to use the file browser to look for and all directories on the data card appear to be empty or contain only subdirectories, no files. A soft reset fixes the problem.
2) Often times my phone just locks up -- stops responding to anything. Again, only a soft reset fixes this.
Both problems are happening at least once per day.
Anybody have any comments ?

Custom Ringtones? Mp3 ringtones? help please!
This isn'tlike the normal wm phones where you can just copy and drag files to the rings directory. Does anyone know how to customize ringers? In settings it's already set as the desired file but it still defaults to the treo ringtone. Please get back to me with this!
Again, I thought this might be the car charger until I noticed it doing this when plugged in at my desk.

Did anyone return their Instinct for the TREO 800w?
Just curios because I was promised a lot more from the Instinct at the store only to later find out that Sprint had no intention of providing what I wanted. I at least wanted the ability to read email attachments. I didn't need the ability to edit them but at least read my Word, Excel, or even PDFs while I was mobile. That was my breaking point.
