    Not true. The Samsung I330, and the Handspring Treo both have IR ports.
    Now, whether those ports can be used for modem? That I don't know.

    Re: Re: Cell phone with IR modem to Palm


    Maybe I misunderstood John's post, but I wouldn't say none of the Sprint
    phones have IR capabilities. The i-500 I ordered listed the following
    as a spec on the SPCS website:

    Palm OS 4.1 Stylish, slim, clamshell Palm Powered PCS Vision Phone with
    16 MB of memory (RAM), 66 MHz Dragonball processor, and IR port.

    If you watch the flash demo on the i-500 page, they even demonstrate
    it's use. If this is untrue it's not much of a PALM.

    It has the IR port, but John was talking (I think) about using the IR port
    as the "connection" to enable using the phone as a modem.

    Re: Re: Cell phone with IR modem to Palm

    Right. I was trying to do exactly this over the weekend, use the IR port on
    my SPH-i300 as the connection between the palmphone and my laptop to
    hopefully obtain internet access for my laptop. I couldn't find a way to
    make it work though.

    Anyone successfully get this or a similar configuration to function? FWIW
    the laptop I'm using is running WinXP.

    Thanks,

    Yes, I know. I carry an i300, which also has an IR port..

    However, using a PalmPhone to IR to another Palm is a little absurd,
    doncha think?

    Besides, I tried with the i300 to feed data to another Palm; no joy.

    I prefer to recommend only things that work.
