Wow! This phone is great in concept and horrid in execution...I've had two and both had full share of issues already noted in blogs in 2005...soft-boots, hard-boots, lost data (requiring resyncing to desktop or laptop, which means forget traveling without your laptop for more than a day or two because it will surely crash!), camera that didn't work...I undertsand these issues are not part of Verizon Treo 650, but cingular offers international use, a must for me)...IF PalmOne could stabilize this device and eliminate the need to re-boot/re-synce every few days, then they would have a true winner! One note Palm...I've been told by more than one of your reps that there was a compatibility issue with Cingular/AT&T network...Why did you EVER bring this phone out without resolving that first?! The market prestige you will lose will offset the profits you are making in the long-run! Poor decision!!! Also note Palm, please allow users to have total control over menus in phone and main screen...speed-dial needs to accomodate more than one contact per letter as well...
In summary, I gave it two trys with two different 650s and I've had enough headaches! I'm going elsewhere after years of using Palm PDAs! Hope the "670" (or whatever replaces the 650) is completely tested (successfully) before bringing out to market!!!!! May come back some day...You'll have to earn it though!
Hey Jon believ me & but the nokia 6680. Its a great fone with a good camera. video recording upto 60 minutes. Loads of applications can be downloaded from the net. Its a 3G fone. Its a bargain.. Just close your eyes & buy it. I am using it for the last 2 monts & I am loving it.
Hi, can any1 tell of website(s) dat i can download free softwares for my Treo650? And also can any1 tell me how to perform a soft & hard reset for this set? Cheers!
I am considering purchasing either this or the nokia 6680, which one is the better? I want a phone with a GOOD web browser, GOOD camera and video recorder and a huge variety of features, which is the better phone for me? Also can the nokia 6680 have satnav on it?
I waited and bought the TREO 650 for its bluetooth capability over the TREO 600 and its ability to work with ACT! Contact Management Database software. It does not work well with ACT!. Should I go back and downgrade to a TREO 600 and do without bluetooth?. I've heard the Blackberry's don't work well with ACT. I have 3,500 contacts that I would like to have on my TREO 650 or something similar. Your expert thoughts appreciated.
please click this link for the Treo 670:
i've already tried this fone and it lasted for only 6 days cause i'm not satisfied.
Just wait for Palm 670...soon!

My friend has this phone and it is huge. It is funny u could see his jeans coming down from one side because of the weight of this brick. Still it hs many features but normal people really dont need this. It is only business men or people who have business networked to the world wide web.
Does the Treo 650 have an alarm clock? Thanks!
there are still lots of available pda's to choose from...
and this one?...it's like buying a HEADACHE!
ok,you may upgrade your firmware...
still the applications are incomplete.
sad thing is that you have to buy the softwares you like...that costs much,with bugs or even no activation code.
some fones has it all like SE P910 or nokia 6680..the one i'm using now cause treo 650 really dissapointed me. imagine the cost i've spent for a Headache! someone purchased my unit for a cheaper price of $535.
i am calling the attention of palmOne...i need to hear your side please.
lastly, i heard palmOne is changing their brandname to One? is that true?
Don't use One, why not try Second, Third, Fourth.....i'm really angry!
Its interesting I have been waiting for this Phone to come along for so long.I can say I was impressed with it when I first got it,but after a couple of weeks I was getting prepared to send Palm hatemail for producing a great piece of hardware with such shocking software.My phone suffered form every Problem i have read about on line.The resets,the phone switching off,constant soft resets,Bad blue tooth connections poor reception bad phone call volume.I downloaded every fault from the opinion pages and printed copies off, took them to the people I had purchased the phone off as proof that it was not just my phone.They sent it off to palm who loaded the very latest firmware for a GSM unlocked which according to the web site had just become available which was 1.13.My phone came back 1.14 The phone is almost perfect now.
ringo pro rings 5 seconds only of the assigned ringtone...why not the whole music/mp3?
much better to dispose treo 650 and wait for the improved one!
hello palmone..your attention please!
To get your ringtone associated with an individual in your address book, you need ringo pro or mring.
i've already disposed mine at greenhills (while on fire)last saturday for 30,000 peso/$535s after using it for 5 days. i can not stand the constant resets every now & then and you have to buy softwares to satisfy your needs. i bought Photo resco viewer for $18 at palmfocus but to my dismay, it has no activation code. no attention was given when i e-mailed them.
switched to n6680 instead. now i have no more worries!
How do I get a ringtone I recorded associated with an individual in my contacts rather than the standard ringones?
This phone is hot i like it a lot. But what da F... is up with constant RESETS ??? can anyone help on how to stop them ??? it resets automatically 5-6 times a day f....ing horoble Please somebody help
Phone First: Big & (clunky) - wonderful-amazing screen, fast easy dialing, average to just below average sound quality, great reception, poor battery life, sub-par reliability (compared to other just-phone products).
PDA: Palm - what's not to love. I miss the graffiti areas of the full-fledged palms, but otherwise the Treo 650 makes an outstanding palm: Screen, thumb-board, battery life and reliabilty (compared to other pda's).
Smart-Phone: After trying all the others, this is by far the best. I prefer Palm of Windows Mobile largely due to the software and communiites that exist around the Palm platform. My treo has all the games and media apps you could want, but it is a true work horse for my professional life.
No matter what country I'm in, it flawlessly logs in to the GPRS network, builds a VPN connection back to my corporate infrastructure, authenticates with Exchange, updates emails - with a touch of a single button or in a completely automated, scheduled fashion. I didn't have the time to get a PHD and learn how to do all of that on the Windows platform. Some corporate users might prefer the BlackBerry, but I prefer the great screen, flexibility to include private email synchronization and run any of the countless apps available for the Palm OS.
In short: Great stuff!
you have to purchase a software to use your mp3 as ringtone.RingoPro mp3 is available at www.palmfocus.com for $29...however,it plays only 5 seconds of the assigned mp3 and not the whole song.
check other software (trial,good for 15 days)to satisfy your needs.
but if i were you,i'm goin to dispose it immediately...Treo 650 is a big HEADACHE!
