upgrading to 8330 from Treo650?
Potential Newbie here. I've read a tiny bit of this forum and have questions if you have a minute.
I have an older Treo 650 (Sprint PCS) which works pretty well for me. Although I try to avoid data/internet use because that is charged separtely to my bill. I recenlty learned that Boost Mobile (Sprint's mobile service) offers a voice and data plan wth the same monthly rate. So, I might as well switch over to Boost and use a 8330. It's not that I'm a Sprint fan, but it deos work in my nieghborhood and office.
Here are questions based on my favorite Treo features:
1 - Does the 8330 have a ringer/vibrate switch located on the phone's case?
2 - Does the 8330 have Scientific Caluclator functions? Sine, Cos, Tan, etc.? And Unit coversions? Feet>Meters, Sq Ft > Sq M, etc.?
3 - Memos - Is there a memos feature? (I store lists of helpful info. For example - I have a list of San Francisco restaurants open after 10pm.)
4 - Does anyone know if the Calender appointments and thier reminder alerts will import? (I'm using Palm Desktop Version 6.2.2)
5 - Does anyone know if the Contacts, associated notes, and birthday reminder alerts will import?
6 - I assume that the importing process occurs through Blackberry Desktop software. After the BB software imports my contacts, calender, and memos, then I would sync with the BB phone. Is this correct?
Please let me know if you have a minute.
Hey n the 8330 a pretty good phone n to let you know your answers here they are
1.It does have vibrate n ring n easy to switch
2.N yes it does have the calcuator to n more to you need to download from app world to get a good one

Thanks for your kind reply. I have a few more questions.
1 - If you go to your contact list and open a contact for anyone (your friend, family member, etc.) does the contact "page/window" have a feild or box where you can enter the person's birthday?
2 - Can you set a reminder alert for the birthday?
3 - Does the contact have a place where you can enter notes for that person?
Pls le me know if you have a second.
Thanks again, Beemie
N yes to all 3
