    My palm treo pro did not come with a user manuel. Usually with all the other Palm's I have had, all came with a book telling one everything . this one virtually nothing. I also cannot set up voice recognition!

If you're talking about a "Notepad" entry, from within that record, click "Menu-->Options-->Details" and check 'Private.'

If you're talking about a Memopad entry, from within that record click on 'Details' and check the 'private' box.

Let me know if this solution helped :)

You can put a general subsidy lock, that ask a password at startup of your palm, but you cannot protect single files on a palm treo.

See guides below, they say the same:

Hi

As per the Palm Treo Pro User Manual the only way is to use the security software.

Please revert for any clarifications.

Thanks
