Update on Prism

I.M. Anonymous @ 11/16/2000 1:16:16 AM #
Well, after much struggle, I finally found out why my new Thinmodem would not sync via modem to my desktop. The OS on the Prism did not have the modem sync implimented! Surprise!! Having said that, after the install, all worked perfectly. Thanks Handspring, but you shouldn't keep this a secret. Would have saved me a few hours of work.

How about IIIC ?

Little to late for some x-prism owners

It's a little to late (for me anyways). Nice gesture on HSpring, but after much trouble shooting, hard resets, soft resets, and Graffiti writing (more like Graffiti pressing). I returned my unit back for a full refund where I purchased it. I can only hope it is improved hereon with the Graffiti issue. I know some issues arise after production, but I have a hard time swallowing $450 dollars for a unit and then spending hours trying to be productive on my unit and can't! The customer support is excellent though, they did offer me a replacement unit, but I declined. They will walk you through any issues you have with the unit. Make sure you sync all data before you call them, you will most likely do a hard reset.

why not for Visor Delux??
