    My g/f just got me the Treo 650 (Cingular). I'm getting it next week, and I remember a lot of people saying you need to do this get this blah blah. I went on Treocentral and one other forum and all of the jargon goes over my head.

    I'm still in college right now. My fourth year to be exact. I just want to know all of the good programs to get for it, or at least where to get them. Also, what I'll need to upgrade and what bugs I need to worry about. I also remember hearing something about the bluetooth sucks, but I want to get a headset. And what about media? Thanks in advance for any help.

    CLIFFS: Getting a new Treo, know nothing about. Help me. :love:OT

    update your firmware first. Go to www.palm.com and follow directions for the updater for cingular treos.

    get butler

    if volume is low, get volume care

    use a screen protector

    Get Ringo Pro for MP3 ringtones

    Pockettunes is my choice for an mp3 player

    more as i think of them. PM me w/ any specific questions.

    Anyone know how to get a video on it via the SD card?
    It says the card is write protected but it isn't.

    I have fit full movies on my treo, you have to emulate and shrink them but they will fit.

    lol, look at your sd card, the little switch on the side probably got pushed down, put it in the non-lock position and it should work

    or you can just wait a few months, production units with the full box and all :eek5:

    Maybe it'll be out earlier than predicted, maybe pressure from consumers/businesses?

    Oh. Well....I already gave the most relevant software titles, pretty much what I use.

    The HTC 8125 is the phone you should have waited for, rumored to come out in 2 weeks :big grin:
