2 questions about the phone.
1. Is their anyway to get mp3 ringtones on it?
2. how is the reception?
i have had this phone for a 3 days now. didnt have time to sync it yet. but i dont understand why everyone is complaining about the battery life. mine after a 14 hour day still has like 5% charge.... tats with intense sms (at least 100) using memos and all. but i dont play games on it. i dont see the point.....
i have had a qtek 9100 and i like this phone alottttt better. not as bulky. visually alot more apealing.... works just as well in my openion. the only little problem is that the bottons are very close. but i got used to it preatty fast. i rather have a small phone with keys like that then bulky phone. i recomend this phone alot
Hi guys, I just got my 680 around 2 weeks ago, beside of battery life issue everything is great, I just wondering why the screen kept on during receiving call, it makes the earphone feel hot just in few minutes, there is only dim controller in system pref and I cant solve this problem out. Please tell me if u guys know how to solve it, I think battery life will be much better if the screen off during receiving call. Thanks for any information u give.
For those with poor battery life, follow these instructions for conditioning the battery. I can go three days with heavy use.
Yes it does....I have it running. It's called "Blackberry Connect". You can get more info from the Palm website.
Like to know if the palm treo 680 supports blackberry email client (push email).
If not is ther a way to support blackberry client on this phone.
Hi... Any one have the third party software for Palm Treo 680 to able the user to assign mp3 as their ringtone. Have been searching & found "Ringo Pro" is one of these third party software that manage this function BUT it not FREE. It cost $29.90 for a simple software like this. Too expensive. Anyone can share a this software if you own it? Thanks in advance!
FYI-IR is short for infra-red. Palm refers to this feature as the "Beam"
If you are only getting 1 day from your battery...in addition to turning off bluetooth/IR, try disabling the option to "automatically set date and time". That buggy option really drains the battery. After turning off the autoupdate option, I still have about 80% battery left after about 20 hours of light usage.
what does ir mean? Am getting only one day on my battery life.
Got my 680 a few days ago. It has been running for about 36 hours since the first full charge. Still have about 50% power remaining with light talking and some SMS. Keep in mind I dimmed the screen a bit because I found the default to be too bright. Obviously I won't get anywhere near the advertised 300 hours of standby...but so far battery life seems OK.
two days ago I posted my comment on my battery not lasting one day. after that i disabled IR. it worked wonders! it is now 2+ days since i last charged my phone and it is still up and alive.
Hi everyone,i don't understand how u succeed in the battery life??can u share withme how to make it longer?? thanks
I received mine two days ago. With normal usage, battery lasted a little less than one day w/c I think is poor. I looked at the site containing battery fix (camera update)and it says that units purchased before 1/18/07 should install the update. And based on the unit's serial number, it also says that the update is not necessary.
So I'm not sure if my unit already has the camera update or not. Based on the CameraLib-camL version, I do not have v.3.1.
Should I run the update? Or should I wait for a few more days before battery performance improves (as what is mentinoed in some of the postings here)?
sure it takes effects here's the trick..
1.in the prefs. section power turn of the beam
2.while you charge the phone take out the battere for more or less 5 minutes..
have a nice day...
I've bought the treo 680.. and i think i'm quite satisfied.. especially after i managed the battere problem.. so keep on going to palm.. i salute you..
