Treo 650 and PDF formats

I have a very nice customer who purchased a Treo 650 from me. He is a lawyer and people are emailing him constantly. He purchased this device under the impression it would open and read PDF files. He states that in the manual it says it will work. Unfortunatly it doesnt. He along with multiple co-workers of his get an error whenever opening up a PDF file via VersaMail. I logged onto palms website and there was a post saying that users would have to convert the "Native PDF" file, into one the Treo would support. This post was made in 2004 though so Im not sure if they fixed this. Has anyone heard anything like this? Any help?

Changing Firmware on Treo 650

I am currently a Cingular customer with a Treo 650. I am considering going with Verizon for the Treo 700.
As I travel on business a lot, can I load the firmware for the unlocked treo from the Palm website onto my 650 and turn it into an unlocked phone? This way when I go abroad, I can purchase a sim card locally.

Thanks in advance.

Good Sites for Treo

Does anyone know any good sites for sports scores on the Treo? Also is there a way to make it default to the WAP sites instead of the full pages that take forever to download? Looking for WAP site address' for ESPN or others.

Treo 700

Has no one heard about the new Treo? It's almost sad the direction palm has taken... Unless you enjoy windows mobile. I guess i should have posted this in the Pocket PC section.

Oh and hi, im new. lol

Looking for Alternative to SPH-I300


I just browsed around the forum looking for an alternative to my 4-year old Samsung SPH-i300. I'd like to get a phone with the following features:

Clamshell design (w/ tactile buttons)
Palm platform
Sprint compatible (I guess that's not mandatory, but I get good reception where I'm at)
Expandable memory

I've held off on the i-500 for a few reasons (no VM notification or caller ID when clamshell is closed, limited memory, phone appears to be somewhat discontinued).

Anyway, I'll keep looking through this site, but any suggestions on future phones would be appreciated.

Flame away.

Kyocera 7135 - Veo

My Veo Photo Traveler attachment camera takes good pictures, but in the view finder, the objects are sideways, no matter which way you turn the device.

I've downloaded the drivers from the Kyocera site, and wondered if anyone else has had this glitch. If so, is there a solution, other than getting another Smartphone.

It has come in handy on may occasions, and would still love to use it for a while. Thanks for any help on this. StarWise

Kyocera 7135 for Sale or Trade

Hey Group, I just bought a Kyocera 7135 on ebay and much to my dismay found out it does not work on Sprint's network. So I am looking to sell or trade it for a smartphone that does. If anybody is interested please let me know. Also if I am wrong about it not working Sprint, that would be good also.

Thanks in advance

Treo 650 - Software Compatibility - Considering Purchase

I have worn out my Sony CLIE N760, though I do have a back-up unit and I am considering a purchase of a Treo 650, to combine my CLIE and Verizon Cell phone to conserve room in my pocket. I am a very heavy user of my PDA as opposed to the cell phone. I am currently using Palm OS Version 4.1S and I am wondering if anyone is having issues utilizing the following software on the Treo 650 platform:

- ACT! for Palm OS
- Pocket Quicken V 2.03
- Quicksheets V 4.1.4 - though I understand there is software to convert Excel and Word files as standard to the Treo platform.

My specific concern is whether there will be, or if anyone has had, HotSync issues that crash Windows XP (that never happens I know) as I am currently having on both of my top...
