    Anyone had any luck getting ESPN.com's palm applicatino to work on a Treo
    300? (http://espn.go.com/wireless/s/index.html) I dont see any
    restrictions on the supported Palm OS versions mentioned on the website.

    Palm phones are advertised as running "most palm apps". To make the phone
    works, Palm overhead that some apps might want to use are reserved, and thus
    not all apps run.

    So is this one of those apps? Or is your comment a general one that might
    or might not apply in this case?

    What Palm devices is the ESPN app advertised to work on? If Treo 300 isn't on
    the list, then it likely won't work, even if it works on another Palm phone.

    We had a USELESS answer by A Sprint employee not long ago, "It works on a Treo,
    try it on the Samsung". Programs only work on the devices they're designed to
    work on. Extra effort needs to be expended for Palm phones.

    ==================
    I don't work for Sprint
    I can give USEFUL answers.

    Sorry, I hadn't looked at the description for the app. This one clearly
    won't work on a Treo - it is specifically designed for the Palm VII or Palm
    VIIx.

    However, your answer is very thought-provoking. I'm considering purchasing
    a Treo 600 to be used as an add-a- phone with my SprintPCS account. Doesn't
    a Treo 600 look to Palm apps like a Palm OS5 device with a modem? Are there
    apps that would work on a Tungsten W (that's Palm's device that talks to
    AT&T GPRS) that wouldn't work on a Treo 600?

    yes and no. If the application is written sprictly to Palm's (or Handsprings)
    specifications then it should work. Sometimes however for performance reasons,
    to work around OS bugs, or pure laziness a program may violate programming
    rules, and thus not work on a slightly different machine - i.e. Treo 600;
    Better buy from Handspring and get 30 days to check it out.

    No I accurately stated the facts. Your off the wall analogies confusing
    hardware with services has made you look like a blind apologist. And your
    childish insistance in getting the last word in
    even when you're wrong makes you an embarressment to Sprint.

    You have never apologized to Justin for calling him a liar, when all he did was
    tell of his ordeal with Sprint.

    Here is what Vargas said that sent a user on a wild goose chase.

    ============================

    I've been told that the "TC Ringer" application at

    http://www.treocentral.com/content/Ringtones/index.htm
    Will work on the I330. I don't own one, though, so I've never had the chance
    to try it out.

    ==================

    Let's see him say that's inaccurate.

    As usual, your description of what other people have said is off the mark. =

    It's so consistent and repeated, it can be nothing but deliberate.

    What you ignore is how different that is than what you claimed I said.
