    The answers to some of these questions might be obvious but I can't find
    them so I'm posting them here. Also I'm asking for your expert opinions on
    what I should do!

    I'm currently a SprintPCS customer with two lines - a regular PCS w/Vision
    line and a separate data line for my Merlin card. I can't find a way to
    tell my data usage (I have 20 mb per month and I'd like to know where I am),
    and I find the data service to be relatively unreliable (my service
    regularly locks up so I have to disconnect, reconnect, and often re-do what
    I was doing) so I'm considering dropping the Merlin card and buying a Treo.
    BTW, I'm out of contract on my second line (data line) but I have about 6
    weeks to go before the end of my one-year regular PCS Vision line
    committment.

    1. Is there any way for me to tell how much data usage I've had part-way
    through a monthly billing period on my Merlin data line?
    2. If I drop the Merlin card and second line and then add a Treo (a new
    second line), am I eligible for the $300 rebate?
    3. Is the line needed for a Treo 300 or 600 a standard PCS Free and Clear
    Vision plan or is it a data plan? If it's a standard plan then is there a
    limit for how much data I send and receive? I'm asking because of the amount
    of email that I get (an awful lot of which is spam!!!)
    4. I understand that the new Treo 600 will run Palm OS5, will include
    SEVEN's mobile email software and has an SD slot. Will the SD slot support
    the new SD WiFi cards that are appearing? And if so (I don't see any reason
    why not) will the SEVEN mobile email software be able to use my WiFi link to
    get my email when I'm in a WiFi enabled area and Sprint PCS data service
    when I'm not in a WiFi enabled area? If so this would siginificantly reduce
    my Sprint PCS data usage.
    5. Am I better off getting a Treo 300 now (with the $300 rebate before
    10/10) on a 2-year committment or am I better waiting until my one-year PCS
    line committment ends on 10/20 and negotiating some type of overall
    agreement for two lines?
    6. What else should I be aware of that might cause me problems?

    I can't help you with your questions about your data card, but I might
    be able to help with your Treo questions.

    2. The $300 rebates are for people opening a new line of service, ie
    new phone number. Considering your Merlin card doesn't have a phone
    number because it's only data, I THINK there should be no problem
    dropping it and then adding a new voice line which the Treo would use.

    3. The Treos use a regular Free and Clear (with or without Vision)
    plan, same as a traditional phone. Without an unlimited Vision Pack,
    data is $.01 per kilobyte. With a Vision Pack, it's unlimited.
    However, the Treo is subject to the same rules as other phones, so they
    don't want you using it as a modem for your computer. If you do that,
    you could have unlimited Vision revoked. If you're talking about
    getting your e-mail on the Treo itself, then you can download as much
    as you want.

    Starting in July, they charge $7.50 to have unlimited Vision on an
    Add-A-Phone. If you would add the Treo's line to your existing plan as
    an Add-A-Phone on a shared minute plan, it could cost you that. You
    might get it free if your plan is grandfathered in, since you're adding
    a line and not getting a new plan. Also, depending on what plan you
    have and how many minutes, the second line will cost $10 or $20 on top
    of the possible Vision charges.

    4. I haven't heard if anyone's developed WiFi SD cards for Palm 5. If
    they're out there, I don't see why it wouldn't work with the Treo 600.
    I know Bluetooth SD cards don't work with Palm OS 5 yet, but WiFi could
    be a different story. If they're out there and you get one, that
    should enable you to use any non-Vision-only data functions of your
    Treo, ie web browsing, e-mail, chatting, etc. without taking up your
    Vision data.

    5. That's a good question. The rebates might roll over and have a new
    set of deadlines after these expire, but who knows. If you want a Treo
    300, now seems like the best time to save money and get one for $99.
    However, if you wait until after your current contract expires and
    you're month to month, you'll be in a better position to negotiate for
    a better deal on your plan. It wouldn't hurt to call now and ask what
    they can do since you're only just over a month away from being able to
    walk.

    6. The only problems I see would be cancelling your data plan when you
    add the line for the Treo. For people that try to cancel their account
    and start a new one for rebates, they're denied because they're not
    considered new customers unless the account's closed for 6 months I
    believe. They could try and tell you by cancelling the data plan and
    starting a new line, it's not really opening a new line of service.
    You'd have to talk to a CSR about that. There are several on the
    boards who would know better than me. But I would assume it shouldn't
    pose a problem because it's not a primary line, and it's a data plan
    vs. a voice line. Other than that, the only issues would be getting
    $300 in mail-in rebates vs. possibly getting a better deal on your
    account. You still have some time to try to figure it out. Good luck,
    I hope this helped.

    Re: Treo 300/600 Questions

    I don't have much experience with Sprint, although I did recently upgrade
    from a Treo 180 on t-mobile to a 300 on Sprint. There is a program that
    will allow you to use your laptop on the internet. I've never used it, but
    it has a free trial. http://www.junefabrics.com/palmnet/index.php. Its $34
    to register. The only reason I upgraded was because t-mobile refused to
    give me internet service on my 180, it had some problems, and I had a
    service contract at CompUSA on the 180 and got the 300 for free. Whopee! I
    got a better phone, better voice quality, and 2 lines with unlimited Vision.
    Sweet! Handspring has announced they will be offering a trade in program
    for Treo owners to the 600, but no one knows how much they will be worth
    yet. My craptop is pretty slow and pathetic, but there are a few things it
    can do that I can't do very effectively on my phone. Instead of dragging
    around a laptop I just remote control my home PC from my Treo and use the
    laptop for the functions I need it for. Its quite the spiffy piece of
    software, and its free! http://www.win-hand.com/.

    As for the wi-fi, this doesn't seem like a very practical thing to do unless
    you are doing it the other way around and using your treo as your internet
    gateway. (Don't ask me how to do this. I wish I was a beta tester for the
    600.) With unlimited vision there is no byte limit anyway, so what does it
    matter?

    I notice my Treo appears to freeze momentarily and then it reconnects
    sometimes when I begin sending data after a period of being idle. This is
    especially true in my unified instant messenger
    http://www.pdaapps.com/verichat/default.html since it only uses the
    connection when sending message and receives them via SMS (which requires no
    connection). I don't see any glitches when I'm playing in Kazaa K++ on my
    home PC from work though. (Shhh, don't tell!)

    The Treo 300 has no SMS message sending capabilities!!!! Beware. I don't
    know who allowed this to happen, but it comes with only a client.
    Ironically (well, not really) the company that wrote the SMS client also
    writes a client with a send button, but they charge you for it. (PDA Apps,
    the same company making the messenger. Probably no surprise that they work
    harmoniously together, right?) I'll be damned if I let them get my money
    for that though! I'm working on a fast efficient work-around. I just stay
    on the messengers 24/7 instead for now. :-)

    A few updates:

    1. Sprint confirmed that I can cancel my data plan (my second line), then
    add the Treo 300 as an add-a-line sharing minutes with my current PCS vision
    line. Monthly cost will be $20 for the line plus $7.50 for vision. I am
    also eligible for the $300 rebates. (Anyone know who sells the phone with
    an instant rebate so I would pay $99 rather than paying $399 and getting a
    $300 service credit from SprintPCS?)

    2. A note - ebates has a 5% rebate (they call it a discount now) on
    purchases from Handspring.

    3. Apparently the Treo 600 will be one of the first SPCS phones to support
    SMS. http://www.howardforums.com/archive/topic/200227-1.html

    4. To ChinnoDog - On a Treo 600 WiFi for email would be nice because I have
    802.11b available at work in my office building and Sprint's 1900 MHz has
    doesn't penetrate the building well (too much rebar). I'd like to be able
    to use WiFi when I can, anyway, because it's so much faster than Sprint's
    data service. It's like comparing broadband with dial-up. However I hope
    I'm not going to have to use two different email programs.

    5. Ominously the Sprint CSR suggested that I may want to take advantage of
    the Treo 300 deal and get unlimited Vision "while it's still available".
    Like the rest of us she had heard that Handspring was going to offer a
    trade-up deal to the Treo 600 but she didn't know what it was. (By the way,
    the whole reason I'm looking at a Treo right now was that Palm discontinued
    their unlimited PalmNet service for Palm i705's. Based on my data usage my
    monthly bills were projected to increase from $35 per month to $262 per
    month, and that was almost entirely email traffic).

    6. They wouldn't offer me any real "deals" on my service at this point. If
    I'm willing to extend my PCS Vision service for a year I can have 60 extra
    anytime minutes (560 instead of 500) and N&W starting at 8 pm instead of 9
    pm.

    There's a perfectly logical reason why the SMS app that comes with the
    Treo 300 doesn't work. Sprint DOES NOT have SMS. The app is the same
    exact piece of software that's in the Treo 270. It's designed for
    MO-SMS, not server side/web-based messaging. It makes sense that it
    doesn't work. That's why PDAapps came out with Treo300SMS (as well as
    i330SMS and i500SMS). Where did you hear that PDAapps made the SMS app
    that comes with the Treo? I haven't heard anything about it.
