I hope for a PDA skin sometime soon.
I am not smart enough to make one myself smile

I gave it a go once, well, I took a deeper dive to see if it would be possible, but it would requite a major overhaul of all scripts.

Everything runs nice with templates, but some html is still generated in the code, and that should also move to the templates before you can think about using different templates for PDA's.

Special skins not needed, cuz UBB renders 100% perfectly on an iPhone, and I commend Rick on that!! cool

Nope I don't because I refuse to spend that kind of money on a phone, ANY phone.
I do support about 5 of them at work though and just like laptops or black berry they're more work for me.

If I did not have to support laptops and phones it would probably reduce my workload by at least 20% - the vast majority of the support isn't even work related, it's due to the user messing up a setting or letting their kid play with it or similar.

Its a great little device overall but I'm just not one to pay that kind of money for PDA/Phone devices.

Ehh... it's cheaper than a laptop, and pocket-sized -- all I need for 99% of what I need. And it'll get even better this Summer. wink

I've been out of corporate life for almost 7 years now, so don't miss that b.s. part of it... wink It's more than a phone... it's a PDA + iPod + phone + mini-laptop. It's the future, today. (K, maybe that last line was lame lolz) .. but it works!

My friend Dustin has gone through 3 iPhones...

Myself, I couldn't fathome using one that can practically make me coffee in the morning, but can't do a simple thing like receive a picture message...

Yeah, I hope they add MMS in a future update, but I can live with emailing photos for now. Ver 2.0 out this Summer should kick more butt, though.
