Yea, its basically a text string similar to that of memos (from
memory) in the Palm PDAs, but its different to todo (and I find very
useful).. I use them to take down random web addresses etc of
newspapers and random stuff that I read in random locations.

Would it be possible to disable this output unless your specify a

The 6230i also allows an arbitary number of groups as well. I'm sure
there must be a limit but I haven't seen it. It also allows you to add
each contact to more than one group.
