    Is there a way to setup ActiveSync on a Treo 700w so that it will only sync
    when you manually start it? If you setup direct push and emails are being
    streamed to your Treo, phone calls go straight to voicemail. I would like to
    be able to use the email/calendar features when I want, and I will manually
    run Active Sync, but I would like to receive phone calls first. I didn't see
    where to shut off the automatic active sync, only where to set the schedule.

  2. It's an unauthorzed kludge that has it's own problems with respect to
    wm5, but, it works and I use it

    Thanks for the quick response. I am a little confused.
    Is this the fix? And if so, how do you run regedit on Windows mobile 5.

    Restoring the Manual Sync Option
    Use Regedit and find the key;
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows CE

    Set the following values correspond to 0 in hexadecimal value.

    - Continuously Update
    - Update on docking

    I do not sync at all with a PC, only over the braodband connection to the
    Exchange server. Can this be turned off and on so that I can sync manually
    when I want to?
