    ah yes
    it is charged

    It seems, 2 days in, to be fine and dandy.
    It feels new when in use, all the buttons and the 5 way feel more solid than every previous TX I've had.
    The screen response is fine and dandy too.
    Seems very accurate.

    At this stage, I have NO 3rd party apps in place at all.
    I have 2 weeks i which to return my old TX and I intend to fully use that period testing the new one, even though I have a new one year warranty in place too!

    So, all good so far

    Congrats, Bocz. I hope this is finally the one!

    My long-out-of-warranty TX keeps going into a coma, despite herculean efforts by Shawn Lux, so I'm back to using my old T2 (which SHawn refurbed) unntil I figure out what to buy/how to afford it. :rolleyes:

    So, really, I need to be able to enjoy, vicariously, a happy ending. ;)

    I hope you got your better half something nice for !st Day of Spring, even if she didn't have anything to do with your wonderful Spring-has-Sprung! gift.

    continued good luck, Bocz!

    Probably, but I am kind of trying to hold off making a firm decision untl I get some hints about what the SDK will --and won't-- bring. Luckily, my budget is co-operating in that. In the meantime, I keep having flashes of I really want another PDA: Another TX? the 210? A GSM Treo/Centro?

    Who knows where I'll end up. :rolleyes: I suspect, however, it will be either Touch or Palm. And I'll get a touch in any case in the future, more a question of which first. :)

    well
    I have had the new one for 2 weeks now
    I have been installing and testing more or less every day
    seems fine to me at this point
    so
    I will be returning the old TX today via UPS, for free
    which is nice
    hopefully this is the one that will work for 2 years and then start to show its age

    the only thing that messed with it was one 3rd party app called Hourly Quote
    total lock up and a 'frantic five' followed, all resolved by hard reset and NV backup and removal of said application.

    Otherwise
    all good :)

    :)
    a frantic five is the mad, worrisome, annoying, sweat producing five minutes that follow events that are not expected, such as my TX going on a full lock and reset loop after installing HQ.

    :) the sort of thing you'd experience if you lost your socks, I imagine.
