It's my first PDA. Now that it's part and parcel with my phone I believe that I've become accustomed to having a PDA now. If I had purchased one when they were fashionable I probably would've only used it for a couple months before it eventually collected dust.I must admit it's a big part of my life. I can get email and communicate with my clients while I'm on site or at my day job. iSync works flawlessly with it.Big thumbs up. Reply 3 of 8 jnrjr79 Posts: 34member August 18, 2004 2:10AM I'll have to log another vote for the Treo. I just got it a couple of months ago and I don't know how I lived without it. I have had a couple of Palm handhelds before, but never found either nearly as useful as this one. I find my handheld to be endlessly more useful having always-on data service than a normla off-line handheld. Plus, device consolidation is great. It's much nicer only having to have one device rather than a separate PDA and phone.

Works just fine with the Mac now. Reply 6 of 8 paintworm Posts: 15member August 20, 2004 6:24PM what other pda/phones work? sonyericcsson? nokia?

Reply 8 of 8 greggwsmith Posts: 523member August 23, 2004 9:00AM I have the Sony UX50 and love it. I work for Nokia so I am constantly switching phones. It is nice to be able to keep everything in one place. Once Apple and Nokia cme together on matching Bluetooth sync I will probably just stick with a phone for everything.
