    did it

    Well after a zillion random reboots, I went through the process yesterday morning and installed the update. A painless process. So far the phone has only restarted once. Before the update it would be three or four times a day. I still can not receive MMS messages sent to my phone from a PC, and Cingular is stumped, saying the update would address that issue. Sorry, no. I love the phone, do wish it were slimmer and contain a beter camera, overall, its an excellent device.

    user name

    Thanks for getting back to me but I only see choose a user name and when you click the box it has my name and then it says select. when I click on select it will not let me type in a new name. IT seem to only want to let me use my name.

    BT wireless headsets and the Cingular 1.15 updater

    i just installed the updater without a hitch (just follow the instructions carefully). It seems everything is okay except my Sony Erickson HBH-660 bluetooth headset no longer works with the Treo. Before the updater it worked fine.

    I tried to pair it with the Treo and it is listed as a trusted device. When I turn the headset on the Treo shows that a bluetooth connection is in progress. Still the headset does not work and when I make a call, the phone window shows no headset icon.

    I've checked some other forums and others are having the same problem with different headsets. The Palm website no longer lists my headsset as a supported device. Before I bought it I checked the website. It was then supported.

    DO NOT INSTALL THE UPDATER IF YOU HAVE A BLUETOOTH HEADSET! Wait til this mess is cleared up. I'm verrrrrrry PO'd!

    I did the update and my motorola Bluetooth headseat still works . BUT now my phone shuts off all the time for no reason. This is my 4th 650 in 2 months they all either freeze up or shut down or reboot all the time. I am done! I am getting a blackberry instead I have no time for this.

    Bluetooth and Voice connect

    Logitech Mobile Pro BT Headset works fine after the firmware upgrade. In fact everything works well, very stable. Data seems a little faster too, but never fast enough!

    My only complaint about the Treo 650 is that even though Cingular's "voice connect" works with my Bluetooth headset, you have to press *8 on the phone before requesting the call by name. There is also no way to select which phone number you want for that contact. It defaults to whatever is first in the list of numbers for that contact. It also has a VERY hard time understanding your request if there is background noise. So it worked very well in my office (where I dont need to use voice dial) and doesn't work at all in my car, where I do want and need to use it.

    I came from a sony-ericsson BT phone that did voice dial via BT PERFECTLY. With that system, you recorded contact names and the words HOME, MOBILE, and WORK. When you wanted to make a call, you pressed a button on the headset waited for a beep and said the contact name as pre-recorded. the system repeats the name and beeps again if there are mulyiple phone numbers. You say home or mobile or work and it connects.

    I miss that feature very much. The Cingular voice connect feature is useless.
