What kind of PDA or personal organization system do you use and why? Blackberry, Treo, or Iphone or something else and what software. I am looking at going electronic and would like some opinions. My current system ( I know it sounds ridiculous but it has been working for me) consists of using my outlook calendar on my PC along with a dayrunner ( I am out of the office all day and only return at night). Kind of a hodgepodge if you will, but like I said it has worked but it is time toupgrade to a better system. Look forward to some responses

I use a black berry, used to have a treo and got rid of it. Blackberry is alot more email oriented than anything. much easier to use and navigate becasue it is simpler than other phones. I see more people with PDA phones that use them as a look rather than a function. If you have an ebterprise server set up everything you type will go over the wire ans sync your BB, similar with email they will appear on your BB. If not and you use a internet based mail system you can do a browser push for email and sync it manually to the computer

I'm in the same boat as Lighthouse. I used to have the Treo 700 and just switched to the BlackBerry. My only uses for a PDA phone are email, calendar, and phone. The Treo would have been nice, had it worked. Too many resets, didn't like to sync, email wasn't functional, etc. The BlackBerry is great, it does everything that I need it to and it doesn't freeze up. The BlackBerry, like stated above, it MUCH more email friendly.

Dopod 838 Pro, but will move to iphone (or more hopefully a Gphone) when they make it 3g/Edge compatible (access to google docs mobile, gmail & gtalk).
