Is there a way I can revert my Palm Treo 650 back to original factory settings


Factory Reset for Treo 700p and 680 smartphones
If you've set a password on your smartphone, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.
On your smartphone, launch the Security application.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone.
3.Once the password has been set, disconnect your smartphone from the AC charger and take off the battery cover. Do not remove the battery yet.
4.Hold down Power/End .
5.While holding down Power/End , remove the battery. Then insert it again.
6.While still holding Power/End , the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.
Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
7.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your device. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again) 9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your smartphone, perform a soft reset.

palm treo reset


You want to perform what is called a "Hard Reset"

It's pretty easy. You hold the power button while you push the reset button on the back. The treo will ask you if you want to erase all the data.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, hold both for a few seconds, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes

  • Here is a explaining what I just said above:
