there is a major problem with USB connections on these Palms (m500,m515). If 
you are a person who attracts static charges, then you can reset the USB to 
non-functional. I found instructions on the 'net for completely resetting the 
Palm with a flat battery - nothing simple nor obvious,but within a month I 
had 'done' it again and couldn't sync with USB.
