Contact! Feb. 25th, 2004 10:18 am
I've been going through the address data in my Treo and I've found that I've got a larger amount of missing and/or (probably) outdated info in there.

So - mainly for my own benefit - can I start the "contact" meme again?

Recommended procedure (by no means compulsory, but I think it works):

1) If you already have your contact info in a post, update that post if necessary and link to it from a new post (keeping the post in the same place helps those really organised people who keep lists of friends' contact posts - I'm not one of them (yet). Creating a new "now" post means we can all find and use that old post).

Otherwise make a friends-only or custom-group post containing whatever contact info you think people need.

2) Add your contact post to your memories under a clear title so it can be found in future.

3) If you're feeling particularly memaholic, list who you got the idea from, and who *they* got it from ;)
(the patent nisaba method ;)

Comments on the above welcomed.

My contact post: here - visible to people likely to have a use for the info.

ObGeekNote - my phone lets you attach pictures to people's numbers. I'm using your LJ-icons ;)

Update In case you all think I'm being chronically lazy (well, I probably am), I've just been through most of my friends list to hunt down contact info & birthdays. And realised that my ideas of your ages were almost all wrong, and that I don't know many of your surnames. However I'm now vaguely organised.

I'll sort out contact info at some point...Your new phone's a Treo 600 isn't it? Can you tell ciphergoth how to attach pictures?

Yup -

Hit the 'phone' button, go to 'Orange', hit a blank graphical button, assign a speed-dial to it, hit "more", check "image', select from uploaded images.

And on a marginally less silly note, let me know if you're going to order any accessories for yours as I need to get a sync cradle for the office and don't really need to pay another set of trans-european shipping.

I have a spare sync cable - I may eventually want it in my office, but not for a while, so do you want to borrow to see if you're really going to make use of it?

Oh right - yes please - a key part of the "get organised" strategy consists of synching my Treo both at work and home daily.

You PL'ing on friday?

Don't know - I'll let you know when I know.

BTW how are you getting user pics onto your phone? Are you using the browser? Email?

The left-hand pane of Palm desktop for Windows as supplied with the Treo600 has a shortcut to "Treo Pictures". This is a directory with 2 subdirs, one of which is named "Transfer".

Sticking JPG images in "transfer" and hotsyncing sends them to the Treo (and deletes them from the PC).
