    I love mine as well, I keep finding new programs for this thing every week:


    BetaPlayer- great free media player, that allow's you to fast forward and reverse in songs, and adjust your playlist.

    Clearview Suite (document viewers)

    Jetcet print, enables ir printing to portable printers

    phm registry editor (for hacking up the registry)

    resco photo viewer (great for taking pictures of the kids with me.)

    Pocket Streets (I'm currently using the old version 2004 I have not seen any compelling reason to upgrade to 2005)

    Power Task

    Smartphone notes

    Tiny eBook Reader

    Attachsmart

    gnuboy (game boy emulator)

    SmartNES (Nintendo Emulator)

    Smart Checkers

    Smart Grandmaster (chess)

    All this plus

    Pocket Internet Explorer, Push email with Wireless Sync, All of my contacts, my calendar, MSN messenger, Built in Voice Recorder (with the ability to send voice messages in your emails.)


    The only thing that is really missing is bluetooth, but honestly I make to many calls to use bluetooth, I would never be able to keep the headset charged.

    Is this a lot better than media player? I haven't used it much.

    If you don't have this will photos display in PIE?


    What's this do?


    I used Wireless Sync for a while but gave it up in favor or using PIE to retrieve my email every 2 hours. Wireless Sync only gives you two choices, manual and every 15 minutes which was overkill for me (and the battery). I also was not comfortable with all my contacts' information out there on a Web site I knew nothing about with no real security statement.

    I can't imagine going back to a "regular phone."

    I am using Pocket Street 2005. I only upgraded from the 2003 version because the 2003 version only supports the Pocket PC OS, not Smartphone.

    "I am using Pocket Street 2005.

    attachsmart is a little program that allows you to add attachements to your emails.

    you can view pictures with pie, but with the photo viewer you can do slide shows and zoom in and out of the pictures.

    I agree. One of the big wigs at my company bought it and asked me to configure his email which took approx 5 minutes. Since I needed more extensive testing I went online and browsed the web for a good 45 minutes. :browani:

    My wife would say the same about me with my i600. :)

    Ok, I'm thinking I need one of these....Have a Dell Axium but would be nice to have a built in phone and camera. Am tossed between the HP and the Palm Treo 650. I currently have T-mobile but hey I'll switch if I have to.
    What are your thoughts.

    All the OS's that I have used: Palm, PPC, Linux, MS Smartphone sync with my PIM on the PC. I use Outlook these days. I like my i600 because the thing is almost bulletproof. The upgrade (i645) will have a camera and EV-DO, which means fast.

    It really depends on whether you want a keyboard, touch scrren, or have a particular preference for one particular OS.

    I know this is an old thread...was searching for info on i600. I don't see anything on the i645...is there a for real upgrade coming out? If not, I'll probably buy the i600 - just looking for basic business productivity in flip/small phone/pda. But, I might wait for EVDO!

    All attention seems focused on the i730. I have not heard anything about the i640/i645. There are a lot of i600s on ebay these days if you don't mind a used one.

    The i600 is shown as out of stock on VZW's site. Regardless, its overpriced given what seems to be near release (i730). I need a pda ASAP. If i730 comes out w/in a few weeks, I'll get that, if not, I'll get a cheaper pda and just carry two tools around!
    Thanks for your info.

    My wife works at a large software company. They get a deal with Verizon through the company. I'm on Sprint but need to switch for better reception here in Los Angeles and trips to Montana. So, I've been planning on the Blackberry 7520 but, today my wife said the Samsung i730 is coming out next week. Now, my wife cares about this stuff as much as I care about Home and Garden TV, but she's pretty good with dates and ordered one for someone in the office.

    Slightly off topic, but do any of you have any personal knowledge or preference between Blackberry 7520 over the Samsung i600 and impending i730?

    I just upgraded my Blackberry to the 7250, very fast processor and probably the quickest web browser of any pda I've used. (Downside is not much on multimedia). But I have the XV6600 which does evrything else the Blackberry doesn't do.

    If the new samsung upgrade to the i600 makes it out I would be surprised, the i600 was a great phone, but I think the new version should include Bluetooth.

    The i730 should be out shortly, and although I have played with it some it seemed to be a pretty solid device. I did think the keyboard was a bit small, and the phone seemed thick, but since I left the world of small phones years ago I could live with the size as long as battery life was good (a problem with my XV6600).

    I'm now leaning towards the i730 over the blackberry because it has a speakerphone and the multimedia. I saw Verizon had the Blackberry 7520 for $49 w/2 year agreement and the i730 through my wife's company is $300 something. Do you know if the i730 has a similar email push technology to the Blackberry?

    The i730 will do push email using Wireless Sync. I believe it will come pre-installed on the device.

    It is rumored to have Blackberry Connect installed as well, but not confirmed.

    I sure hope you wife's dates are really accurate! I found the i600 in stores but decided its "old technology"...besides, the i730 is way too cool. I boutht the basic pda but don't like carrying it around plus a phone. So, by Saturday, I have to return the pda...maybe I can swap it out? :browani:
