Thanks for the tips, Fred ... BTW, I realised after sending my previous
message that I forgot to acknowledge your contributions to this
thread :-).

The problem I see with part of your latest advice, though, is that you
advise getting the latest model treo (that will be biased by what I can
afford) and to get the ones with the external antennae.  Trouble is the
latter feature stopped with the model 650.  What do ya' reckon on the
newer ones, not having this feature then?  Just a contradiction I'd
appreciate you clarifying :-)
