Treo 750v

Hey all. Just picked up a Treo 750v to use. I am replacing my TyTn with this unit. So far, love it. It does have a slightly smaller screen, but boy o boy, does Palm know how to tweak the WM5 interface/OS. First of all, it works GREAT!!!! with bluetooth car kits. Paired it with my Parrot CK3100 in my 05 4runner....All the info (Carrier name, Signal, Battery) showed up immediately. No "Network OK" and lack of all other info....

Now for the good news....Same on my 07 530i. Signal and phonebook WORKS without the jetware plugin. I love it. Also, no more random disconnects.

Voice quality is better than the TyTn. Also, setup was a breeze (Treo read the SIM settings). I was connected right, text, everything. Only disappointment is no HSDPA yet in the firmware. Not that I will miss it that much. I only use data for news, email, and the occasional movie showtime. I can definitely wait for the next firmware update....

Anyhow...Just thought I would share. If you have questions, let me know.
