I usually don’t post things like this as a blog entry or on the front page of any site, but I’ve been having a couple of problems and I really would appreciate some help. I recently switched back to the Treo 750 from the Blackjack I on a lark. It has been a while since I used a PPC (as opposed to a Smartphone), and I thought…eh, what the heck.
Anyway, I also installed the new HTC Home Page plug-in and it really looks nice on my Treo. I installed the 6-tab version (I couldn’t find the 5-tab version) on it, and am having a couple of problems with the device that I haven’t had before using the plug-in.

- Ring tones (or even vibrate as a ring tone) don’t work with the plug-in installed. Most calls come in completely silent, and I usually miss them.
- The device vibrates out of nowhere on its own every 10 minutes or so (my pop3 mail check interval), even if no new mail is downloaded.
- Calls I place don’t use the standard WM5/6 call screens. There is usually no visual evidence that I am placing a call.
If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve these issues, knows of a forum posting on these (or any other issues with the plug-in), or knows of a version that was released after beginning to mid October 2007, please comment back or shoot me a note.
