    Hi. i am looking to get a new cell phone and am seriously considering the Treo 600 or the Kyocera 7135 Smartphone. Both of these run the Palm OS, but I was wondering on how well they would sync with my Mac (AlPB 15").

    I would prefer the Treo 600, however if I cannot switch from Verizon to Cingular i may be stuck with the option of the Kyocera 7135 Smartphone or just a normal cell phone.

    If anyone could give me any help, advice, or past experiences I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your input Neil. I just recently switched as well and this is my first Mac. I absolutely love it. It is a top notch machine and I am sure you will like it as well.

    thanks.

    Unless you're in one of the top 100 population areas, you won't be able to port your number to the new carrier until May 04 :(

    Even if you are in a major metro area, many companies are having problems
    ATT Wireless hits snag

    Just an fyi in your decision making

    I don't have a Treo, but I do have a Palm Tungsten T. I've never had any problems with syncing with my Mac, other than trying to use Apple's iSync after using Microsucks Entourage's conduit. The problem that I ran into there was that everything was duplicated, both in Address Book, and Entourage. I wound up with over 1800 contacts!

    I've found that having my Tungsten and a Sony-Erricson T616 works for me. I can look up a contact on the Palm, and have it dial my phone for me - via Bluetooth.

    I would be interested in hearing how the Treo does, so post your results here on the forums.
