  • Treo 700p 1.10 MR ROM Update for Verizon

    Posted on September 6th, 2007 Shawn No comments

    It’s official, I finally got a Treo 700p for Verizon. Don’t worry, I got it real cheap on eBay. My main reason for getting the 700p now, versus the 755p or waiting for something else to arrive is two-fold:
    * I must have my full size SD cards.
    * I was using my Treo 650 every day tethered to my laptop (with PDANet) for data access on the go. The 650 is soooo slowwww, and the 700p has high-speed EVDO data connection. So much better.

    Now, I beg of the My Mobile Obsession readers: “I need a copy of the Verizon Treo 700p Update 1.10”. As many of you know, Palm pulled it off their website due to customer issues.

    Between you and me, all my Palm devices have/had issues….I’m used to it and will deal with it. I just NEED the update so I don’t have to reinstall all my apps again once the next update comes out.

    Here’s a quick review of my experience on the 700p. So far, it’s got some wicked lag issues (I see what everyone was complaining about). I generally only see the lag when my phone/data connection is weak or dropped. Other than that, the UI is a bit refreshed with minor tweaks from the 650. My must have apps, PocketTunes 4.0.3 and Softick Audio Gateway 1.14 are running quite well. I’m now using VersaMail 3.5.1 to wirelessly sync my Calendar and Contacts. Though VersaMail has it’s issues:
    1) The autosync feature never works.
    2) There no option to sync Tasks. What!!?? You can do Mail, Calendar, and Contacts….but just ignore Tasks. What’s the deal with that?!

    So, ChatterEmail lives on on the 700p. I will continue to use it for mail.

    More updates as they come in.

    For now, I may just stick with Palm Garnet OS and ride it to the end….then see what the hub-bub around the Linux-based Palm OS II is all about.

    iPHone, sorry. You lost me at no keyboard.
    Win Mo, I think you will lose me to Palm OS II. Let’s see when the Win Mo 6 with 320×320 Treo comes out…and then we shall talk again.
