Palm Treo 680
Address Book in Main Screen
Syncing with Outlook has been a total failure. I spent two days with tech support and IT guys trying to sync with outlook.
I finally got KeySuite which works perfectly with Outlook. I am trying to point the address book tab on the phone screen to KeySuite address book instead of Palm’s.
PRICE CUT? any time soon?
Sync with Outlook
My question is, does the 680 sync well with Outlook... No duplicates entries in calendar and contacts, etc.
Slowness in "Phone App"
Am I the only one noticing this? Is there a way to fix this? Can the Cingular phone app be replaced with a better sort of app?
AD discussions continues below...

Cingular 680: No dataplan?
What is the best way to get a 680 for use on the Cingular network if I do not want to buy a dataplan? (Which seems to be a requirement for many rebates...)

Hope this helps everyone - it helped me
My first impressions are pretty good, but a few little things
-I kind of miss the palm graffiti- the tiny keyboard is a little hard to type on (and I have small hands)- hopefully it just takes practice.
-I think the fact that you can't use MP3 ringtones without paying for 3rd party software is ridiculous
-I guess I assumed it would have push email like a blackberry, but it doesn't. Bummer.
Haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life, which seems to be common complaint.
Inserting a PAUSE
ive also tried a spaces and asterisks
all in different denominations assuming each symbol would last about a second.
i prefer not to have to set up every person in my speed dial as there is no search function and it takes longer to pull up a name.
does anyone know how to insert a pause
thank you to anyone who can eliminate this frustration for me
Sync with Outlook
I'm looking at buying a Treo 680 and I wanted to be sure it can sycnronize w/Microsoft Outlook. Specifically, I want to sync my calendar, tasks, notes, and eamils. This could be done via a USB cable or wirelessly.
thanks for any input!
Conditioning the 680s Battery???
Does anyone know what would be the ideal way to condition the battery.
This is a question from one of the reviews that was posted that was not that clear:
"Battery life is good"
Perfect Smartphone!!! Both looks and over-all performance!!!
For those worried about the battery life - I think one of the most important things to do is properly condition the battery before use (or even after use, as in my case) ie. FULLY discharge and recharge at least twice (without using it in ...
