On handwriting units, it's usually in the lower left and has an icon that looks like a menu being pulled down, though it's hard to recognize. On units with a dynamic/collapsible input area (T3, T5, T|X), it's one of the mini-icons at the very bottom of the screen, typically the 3rd one from the left.
Yes, though you may need to order fax service for your GSM account. A data plan (what you use for email and web access) is NOT a fax service plan. On GSM networks, voice, fax and data calls are all treated separately. Everyone has voice service, but may or may not have fax and data service.
Fax and data service is often referred to as CSD service. You may already have it, or you may need to order it from your carrier, usually for a nominal fee. When you add data and fax CSD service to your account, you now technically have 3 phone numbers, one each for receiving voice, data and fax calls. Sometimes carriers don't tell you what your new numbers are, so be sure to ask when ordering.
When adding the new numbers to your phone, your SIM card may have to be updated to tell your phone that it can answer on the new numbers as well, so ask your carrier. The new numbers are for incoming calls; if you are only sending faxes, you don't actually need to know the new numbers.
Yes, though you may need to order fax service for your CDMA account. A data plan (what you use for email and web access) is NOT a fax service plan. CDMA modems work much like a standard fax/data modem. To send a fax, just send away. To receive a fax, simply hit Receive and CS Fax will take the next call as a fax call.
You may or may not need a fax service plan with your CDMA provider. For example, with Sprint, their fax service is called "Wireless Web" service and if you don't have it on your account, you can use it anyhow and are billed a casual-use rate. With Verizon, fax minutes are just part of your plan minutes. Carriers are constantly changing plans and pricing so check with your carrier for specifics.
Can I connect using my cellphone?
Can I connect via Bluetooth?
- PN Technologies - wide selection, including 'smart' cables that correct for deficiences in the serial ports on later handhelds.
- PDAparts - good selection under Sync Cables
- PalmOne (older unit cables no longer stocked)
- SerialIO - universal connector
- CablesToGo - under both 'modem' and 'hotsync' (adapter required)
- There are many other suppliers. Try a google search on 'palm clie serial cables'
On handhelds that have Bluetooth support, if your phone supports Bluetooth, you may be able to connect directly. You can also connect to an external modem via a Bluetooth-to-serial adapter. They're extremely convenient for many applications, but often have to be programmed for specific settings and so can be less flexible than a cable. Check out Socket or Aircable for a Palm-friendly adapter.
