Battery lasted 2 months

I just heard a peculiar sound from my desk a few moments ago, and wanted to let everyone know my Treo 680 (with phone mode off) just started saying battery low.

I know phone was off, but it's pretty amazing to have a device stay on for two months, last time I charged it was 06/26/2008, as that was the last xpressmail message I got on it, and stopped using it on that day.

Problem with AT&T Treo 680 Bluetooth in Acura (JCI Handsfree Link)

I tried out an AT&T Treo 680 in my Acura RDX. I love the phone except that it gets confused about whether the call should be handled in the phone or with the car's handsfree. After handsfree setup, it seems to work fine. Then when I leave the car and receive a call, I can answer it with the phone, but then it goes to the car (not on or in range). I have to press the handsfree disconnect soft button on the screen. Then it appears to work normally. Later, when I get back in the car, it shows connected to the handsfree. When I receive a call, I can answer it with the handsfree controls, but it immediately goes to the phone. Again, I can press the handsfree connect soft button to send it back to the car's handsfree system, but this defeats the p...

680 compatible with Mac

I'm running on a MacBook now and was worried about being able to sync a 680 with my Mac. I understand that it won't work with iCal or the Address book, but is required to run the Palm desktop. The .Mac account is supposed to work with the 680, has anyone tried it with success? How does it work with Hotmail and Yahoo accounts at that? What is tranferable through Bluetooth and infrared with the Mac?

Thank you for what ever answers you might be able to provide.

Mac Mail and the Treo 680

Ok so I've got my email all set up to receive on my Treo, no problems there at all. What I'm wonder is, is there a way to make it so that if I've received email on my computer, that it wont receive on my Treo as well.

I only turn email on the treo when I'm out on the road, but it seems that every message is coming into the treo, even the ones I've read on my computer already.

For instance, today, I was at home, got about 15 emails, read them, kept the ones I needed, deleted the useless ones, then I left this evening and hit the road, turned on email on the Treo, and all the emails I already read today loaded into the Treo....

this is going to get expensive if EVERY email that comes in goes to the treo as well... all I need are the o...

How to get a "silenced caller" from vibrating...

... while still getting it to vibe & ring for unrestricted? I am pretty sure I didn't have this problem with my 650. I a using a 3rd party s'ware that I also use w/o problem on the 650... I didn't read the rules too closely and hope I don't get booted for mentioning a product name. I use Ringo Pro. And like I said with little incident prior to this. Any suggestions? Is there another s'ware that someone has accomplished this with that uses mp3's for r'tones and has group, individual and picture assignment.

As I stated earlier, I got all of this with the same s'ware pkg on the 650. Can't say for certain but I think that the options under "prefs - sounds & alerts" changed between the two phones.

Thanks for any input!

Syncing with Microsoft Exchange Server

Has anyone had any luck using Microsoft Exchange server? I had a Palm 750 and I was able to connect flawlessly. I never had to connect with my computer.

Now I have the 680 and have been on the phone with Palm support for more time than I care to be. They say it is my server's fault that the 680 can't connect.

I have looked at many discussions on different web sites and it appears that eventhough the 680 says it can use MS exchange isn't working.

considering the 680 with it's battery life issues...

I just got cingular with the Blackjack which is a cool phone, but I quickly noticed how horrible the sound quality is especially with the unusuable speaker phone so I'm deciding on going back to a treo(had the 700p with crappy sprint). I still have my 700p with service for a few more days and the sound quality is superior by far so I want the 680 but have heard about horrible battery life though also heard about some software upgrade with the camera.

Has this corrected the battery life issue? Thanks
