    It is becoming clear to me that I need to create a PAN (Personal Area
    Network). I have yet to find an all in one device that meets all of my
    requirements. I want to be able to create a PAN using a BT phone, a Palm
    Tungsten 3 and either my home or work computer (which ever is in range) and
    a soon to be purchased BT handfree device for my car.

    I like the PCS coverage I get in my city and find that it is even better in
    other places that I have traveled so I would like to stay with Sprint. BUT
    .... the company has very few BT phones. I dont want a PDA and phone as a
    single device for several reasons (including size).

    Does any one have first hand experience in using the Sony Ericsson T608
    orthe LG-PM-325? Specifically I would like to know if they work with
    anything other than a BT headset. I have read user comments elsewhere that
    say that the BT has been hobbled by Sprint to prevent full BT interfacing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sprint offers three phones that have blue-tooth, and you may have already
    said "no" to the Treo. This would be a pointer to phonescoop where you can
    look for yourself. Audiovox / UTStarcom PPC-6600 / PPC-6601 / XV6600 (HTC
    Harrier) LG PM-325 PalmOne Treo 650 (CDMA)
    http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/com...3&id%5B%5D=637

    All of those phones available with a new line of service at
    www.better-price-wireless.com as well.

    used to)
    If I can help: [email protected]am or thru this notes forum.

    The LG-PM325 does headset and Dial Up Networking..... that is
    all...... no other bluetooth functions.

    Yeah well, good luck with that. I did the Bluetooth thing for about
    three months and discovered that Bluetooth is overhyped. Far from an
    ideal option. It is easily disrupted by wifi, headset sound quality is
    marginal at best, and data connection throughput was much better using a
    USB cable than a bluetooth DUN profile connection.

    And, they would be largely wrong.

    The LG PM 325 will do DUN profile, and headset profile. It will work
    for data connectivity. It does NOT have OBEX object transfer to
    wirelessly push ringtones and graphics from one device to another, but
    it looks like that's not something you're looking for in the
    applications your mention. Just be sure you have the most recent
    firmware version (I forget the current version number, but just be sure
    to check for firmware updates on your phone; it can update itself over
    the air). The original firmware that shipped with these phones has a
    buggy DUN profile.

    The T608 is uninhibited, but it is an out-of-production model.
