Palm / Blackberry w/ Quicken software

Recommended Posts

LwnmwnMan2

I know there are alot of guys here that run their own business.

Do any of you run either a Palm or Blackberry with Quicken or comparable software??

I'm looking to upgrade my phone, and would like to find someone that's been running a setup like this, to be able to sync receipts and such on the fly, rather than sit down at the end of the year, week, month, whatever.

I know they don't instantly sync, but to enter gas, parts, etc., purchases onto the handset, then when I get home, for them to sync into the proper categories.

Anyone??

Thanks.

They all use the Pocket Quicken which will work with Quicken on the PC.

Yes, I know they all work with each other, I'm wondering how useful it is.

If it's streamlined enough to where it would be feasible to put the extra $500 into the purchase of the phone + software. There's other options as well with the phone, so it wouldn't be like I was dumping the whole amount to the phone.

I have a Palm Treo 700p with Sprint. I use it to about 5% of its total capability, but it is still very useful me and my business. The Palm desktop software by itself is a pretty handy program. It has a calender, tasks, memos, and other features. I can be out of my office and check email and view pdf's and stay in contact about as well as I can actually being in my office. Like I said, I am way under-utilizing all of its potential, but I would buy it again in a minute. I love my phone. In fact I am typing this with it right now!

It won't cost you $500 to do it. Intuit now offers Quicken online so you don't have to buy the actual program if you don't want to. But im no sure how that would sync without the actual program itself installed on the computer.

The Pocket Quicken will sync with the computer when you hooked it up and it will put it into the correct categories as long as you know what your doing.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
