I just got through performing a ROM update to my Treo 650, Treo 650 Updater 1.20 for Unlocked GSM Phones. Fortunately, everything went very well. There seems to be a host of improvements in this update, which are actually improvements. VersaMail is much more stable. Blazer seems to work better as well, but I still have some more testing to do. Also as promised, the voice quality is better. When you throw in better Gmail support, you really cannot go wrong with this update.

Watch out. My attempt at this upgrade failed miserably. It is the first time I have lost everthing in a palm in the past 5 years. It was advised that the upgrade could take up to 30 minutes. After 45 minutes of my palm powering up and powering down, I viewed it as a failure and eventually required a complete hard reset (remove battery and hold red button down while inserting battery and erasing everything). I was not worried because I did a hot sync before I started the process and was sure I could restore.

However, my restore failed and I then discovered I could restore everything I lost EXCEPT items that are part of the Palm program such as contacts, addresses, memos, etc. However, every stupid game I tested and software I tested over the last 5 years went into the unit. So I am now in the market for the best possible way to manage and get rid of old programs. Recommendations?

My research revealed that PALM appears to be using a system designed for DOS 3.0 about 10 years ago. My advice is to make multiple copies of your user files under different names before attempting any upgrade.

Also, when you do the upgrade, you must have the sync cable & the charger cable plugged in.

The 650 is a world above the 600, but I am now in the market for additional and the best possible backup software and the best possible 3rd party software for all the basic Palm functions since it is unreal to me that everything BUT the palm functions were restored. Recommendations?

By the way, I spent 90 minutes with Cingular on the phone and 60 minutes with Palm on the phone and they tried to be helpful and patient. I was eventually able to restore a version I saved about 7 months ago so all was not totally lost, but my result was totally unacceptable.

Unfortunately, I have heard of problems with 1.17 Update for the Cingular Treo 650. However, the 1.20 Update for the Unlocked Palm Treo 650 is different. I have not heard as many problems with it as I have with the latest Cingular update. Just thought I would mention it.

Thanks,
Lance

I got forced into the latest Treo updater 1.04 (Verizon) only a week after buying my new treo, when I installed some old games and learned the hard way about the looping reset/incompatibility issues.

I haven't had any problems with the updater, though.
