Phone Problems
My Treo is starting to crash in the middle of conversations. I am talking, and suddenly the screen turns off, I cant hear the other side, and they can't hear me. Press the red button, and it comes right back, without disconnecting. This is annoying.

I'm not yet willing to nail myself to an iPhone, and getting it thru the corporate phone plan stuff is... unlikely.

My hope for a developer G-Phone is still up in the air.

I may have to pick up a decent cheap cellphone, and do without email and web on my phone for a while.

Current Location: Winchester, VA

Didn't I give you a working 650?

can't you buy an iPhone and have the corporation just pay for the service, not the hardware?

Before you head for the shiny iPhone, make sure you are comfortable with the keyboard. Personally, while I like many things about the iPhone, I Do Not Like The Keyboard, Sam-I-Am. I have big fingers, and they demand tactile feedback that the virtual keyboard hasn't yet figured a way to deliver. And as a result I fat-finger the keys a *lot*.

Predictive spelling on the iPhone is very very good, and rescues me from a lot of the problems, but it drives me nuts. I find myself wishing I had a Blackberry, which has a less good interface overall (which is why I don't have one), but it has a Real Keyboard.
