OK, so here's another "weird" thang. The headphone jack on the SL6000 is a 2.5mm, not a 3.55mm which is the internationally recognized freakin' standard. I guess you could pound it in with a ball peen hammer, which I'm tempted to do, but there is an adapter available. Apparently the Treo 600 uses the same f****d up size, so here's a link to the stupid thing. Aaaarrrggghhhh !

I got the one from Seidio and it's perfect.. although, it costs a little more, especially once you factor in shipping charges... I got 2 since it made no sense to pay a shipping charge what was 100% of the item price... this way, at least, it's only 50%... small consolation.

seems as tho the link went bad/changed...
here it is again

here's a pic with it next to a ruler (I took the pic with the zaurus cam, it wasn't possible to show it with the Z now was it?)

the only "problem" is that it could be easy to lose, but that would be true for any adapter (also why I bought 2)

again,,, _WHY_ did Sharp chose the 2.5mm jack.?.. :-P
