Treo 650's are OK; I have no idea why you'd want to put another OS on
them though - they simply just 'work' as is in my opinion. Tre 600's
tended to pack it in quite easily though; the Treo 650's that I'm aware
of are more stable.

Personally, I find their 'keyboards' ridiculously small and tend to
install a version of 'jot' onto them. That program costs a small amount
of money when you license it.

They're  not very loud, as in the 600's could be heard across the room.
They're acceptable but not brilliant.

I wouldn't -buy- a Treo 650 outright but then again I don't buy knew
phones. Mostly I just use the calendar a litle bit and the contacts
thing and the calculator...

Oh, and the one I'm aware of has no games installed :P
