My Palm is now running perfectly well again. A hard reset and reinstallation of the apps solved the problems I mentioned in my previous post.
One great thing about Palm is that the transfer of important data (contacts, calendar, memos) is fast and easy. After doing the hard reset, I just had to reinstall my apps from a backup folder that I copied from the PalmOne directory on my PC, and I’m ready to use my Treo again.
While I usually brag that my Palm seldom gives me problems, the past week it was different. For some reason, it’s been freezing and I have been unable to do wireless syncing at home. Must be one of my favorite programs about which I will tell you later. Let me fix these problems first.
While writing this post, I’m doing my first wireless sync ever.
All the Palm devices I used before had no Bluetooth connectivity, and I also didn’t have an IR adapter, so cable hotsync was the only way for me then.
When I got my Treo, I wanted to try syncing thru Bluetooth. I was planning to do it as soon as I got my Bluetooth dongle working on my PC. However, upon reading the instructions on Mapalad.org on how to share my PC’s Internet connection with my Treo the other night, I got so excited and temporarily forgot about wireless syncing.

I still have on my Treo most my girlfriend’s old text messages–including those she sent me in 2003. Using FunSMS, as I was able to save messages from my Nokia phones — 7110 and 8250 — on my Palm. I just had to sync thru infrared my phone with my Palm, and all my SMS would be transferred to the latter.
And because the Palm OS provides for easy transfer of data from one device to another, there’s no hassle moving the FunSMS database — where all my SMS messages are — as I upgrade to a newer model. Continue reading

Here’s a photo of my newly acquired Palm Treo 650. I got this secondhand unit for only P9,500 last July 21 in one of the stalls in Greenhills.
For those who are not familiar with Palm products, the Palm Treo 650 is a cellphone, personal digital assistant, portable MP3 and video player, digital camera, ebook reader and “game and watch” in one. Continue reading
My name is Ederic, and I’m a Palm addict.
I started using a Palm –my girlfriend’s m130–in early 2003. Later that year, I bought my first Palm handheld–a Palm m100, which I eventually sold to a friend because I bought another friend’s m505. I later upgraded to a Palm m515.
Just last month, I bought a secondhand Treo 650. I’ve been playing with it for the past few weeks, installing and uninstalling programs while discovering more things that the Treo could do.
In this blog, I’ll be sharing with you my Palm Treo experience.
By the way, my favorite programs — other than Bewejeled, of course — are eReader, funSMS and AvantGo.
