i have a zire 72 and have been with vodaphone and sucsesfuly had all the settiongs working purfectly with gprs conection trew a nokia 6310i i was with! and all was sweet but slow
i have now got an xtra account and a cdma  treo 600(for sale btw) i thought the 600 would repace the palm nokia combo but i was disapointed and have not used the pda featurs on the treo-prefering my zire72!

now is where i want your help i have read about the cdma bluetooth to palm conection dificultys! i want to buy a new phone to use as my modem.
i have looked at fourms regarding the nokia 6255 to palm t3 and if the sms sending function has now been fixed this sounds like a  great way to go?????
i would like to know if anyone is using a 6265 or if any other phones can be recomended?  also i would like any recomended run trews for setting up the pda-phone conections

Welcome to Geekzone... Mind telling us what was the problem with the Treo 600? Some people would love to have a single device instead of a combo.

About the connection: you can connect a Palm to CDMA via mobile phones, you just need a special init string. There are some queries about using CDMA over Bluetooth here and the string required for that to work.

ok dokie
th treo at a glance
the resolution is low
the camera is a pig
no bluetooth
infrared is inconsistant
the phone drops calls 4 no reason + lost text messages
grafiti underprefoms
as a phone its kind of bulky and unreliable as a pda its to small a screan to be afective and easy to use

one pro for this phone is the sms chat log, each text comes threw and is added to the other texts from that person aswell as any replies youve sent
great memory for storing texts as i have had the treo for a year and have every text i have ever sent or recived still on it.
dose any one know of third party software for chat log texting for nokias or to put onto my zire

if any one wants to buy this phone or trade let me know

still looking for the best blutooth ph to buy
