Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

Auto-off not working

I've had my Treo for over a year. Today I've noticed that the auto-off feature ("Prefs" > General > Power) is not working. When I manually put the screen to sleep by pressing the end-call key, the screen wakes back up again within just a few seconds.

I heard this happens after updating the Treo 650 with the new version 1.17. Is this your case? If so just remove the new update... Anyway, you can try the soft restart or even Performing a system reset(from the user guide p.170): ".. Performing a soft reset A soft reset is similar to restarting a computer. If your Treo is not responding or you have trouble synchronizing with your computer, a soft reset may help. 1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward to remove it from your Treo. 2. Use the stylus tip to gently press the reset button on the back of your Treo. .."

Freezes up on palm logo


When you see the first screen (the orange one) hold the UP button as the bar moves across the bottom of the screen. Let go right before the screen goes to the silver logo. If it continues and opens Prefs, then you need to delete the program causing it to reboot. If that doesn't work, do a Hard Reset. A Hard Reset will erase everything on your Treo, so only do it if you have to. Google how to do it, and it's reset.

Hi how do i put a backround on my phone


Hello edgar_25_06,

Putting a background on the palm centro phone could either mean adding a background picture or changing the background color. If changing the color is is desired then its simple:
•Select the the 'System' category in the drop down menu at the top of the main screen.
•Open the Prefs application.
•Select 'Color theme' (near the bottom of the Prefs options).

The Color theme option displays a list of many different screen color settings. Each one of the color themes can be selected and tested on the centro until you find the one you like. Adding a picture for a background is a different matter. I haven't found out how to do that yet.

I thank you for giving a rating to this solution if it has been helpful.

Have a great day,

Treo 650 phones turns off by itself


funny thing... the older palm treos like this one have some glitches. these glitches can normally be fixed by changing some of the settings.

1) go to your home screen, and select PREFS
2)select power
3) set your brightness level all the way to the right (NOTE: it takes more power to dim the screen then it does to brighten the screen.)
4) set auto off after: to the highest number allowed

please let me know if this helps!

How do I access Network Preferences on my Treo? My Treo (T-Mobile) is telling me to "Disconnet Data Connection in Network Preferences and DUN in Blue Tooth Manager." WTF!?!


Here;s the simple walkthrough to get to your Network preferences:

Turn on your Treo 650.
Press the "home" key (looks like a little house on the left of the directional pad).
Navigate to "Prefs" in the main screen.
In "Preferences", the Network preferences are under "Communication".
Since you're using T-Mobile, you'll see "T-Mobile Internet", "T-Mobile VPN", and "T-Zones" if you click on "Service". Make sure your handheld isn't locked though (you'll see the padlock closed).

In the Main screen you will also see Bluetooth. Access this and turn off your bluetooth radio.

One more thing...make sure you're using the latest firmware from Palm. There are features and capabilities that are necessary for your phone.

Go here: http://www.palm.com/us/support/

Download and install the T-Mobile or Unlocked (which ever applies to your phone) firmware and follow the instructions completely.

Good luck.

Palm treo 650


The 650 seems to have a delicate headphone/mic jack. Dropping the phone, even gently, seems mess up that jack. I returned my first treo 650 as defective, and got a new one. The same thing happened to my new 650 after I simply compressed the phone in my breast coat pocket by holding my mail against my chest.

I can't get a new one because the replacement treo comes with no warranty of any kind. :(

My advice would be to find a PDA/phone repair service to repair the jack or diagnose the problem if it turns out not to be the jack.

Getting it to work


Pairing This was the second Bluetooth device I?ve used, and I had the headset paired in under 60 seconds once I had deciphered the instructions in the manual. When you press the call control and multifunction control buttons on the headset simultaneously, the M2500 goes into pairing mode. The standard way to get the Treo to pair is to click on the Bluetooth icon and basically follow the prompts: Turn Bluetooth on, make the device ?discoverable,? click on ?set up devices? and then ?Handsfree setup,? and the Treo will find the Plantronics headset. Once you?ve set up one Bluetooth device, you?re a pro. The only thing you need to know is the combination of buttons that puts a device into pairing mode. However, with the Plantronics M2500, I discovered an even easier method. Simply power up the Bluetooth headset while the Treo is on and you will be immediately prompted for the passcode, four zeros, if the devices are not paired. How cool is that? It saves many steps.
