Re: My Treo hangs frequently

It's mainly due to NVFS and its variable database positions as well as DBCache running out of Cache space. I use a combination of RescoLocker to "lock" the apps so that it won't cause a reset (esp with older apps), Pref Doctor, and Resco Backup a reliable backup program.

How to Hard Reset Treo 650 eHow

Bueno, trata lo siguente:
If you purchased the Treo in the U.S., you should have the English to Spanish option when you reset the phone. Just make sure to back up your data before resetting it.

HotSync the Treo 650 to your computer to ensure that you have all of your information backed up. You will lose everything on your Treo 650 with a hard reset.
Step2Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset. Step 11Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen. Step 2Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset. Step 3Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone. Step 4HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process. jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
  • Do not forget to back up your data before performing the hard reset. If you don't, only the data from your last HotSync will be able to be recovered.
  • After performing a hard reset, install your applications one at a time to make sure each is in working order. Delete any applications that are not in working order, as those might have caused the need for the hard reset in the first place.
Buenas Suerte,

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

How do you do a hard reset on a treo 650

1. Backup your data first.
2. While holding the red hang-up key, click the reset button. Keep holding the red key until after the progress bar completes and the Palm logo shows.
3. You are then asked if you are really sure - Pressing the up key at this point completes the hard reset.

Frequent hanging of my new palm treo650

If it's new, it's under warranty, get a new one.

Also, if you have tons of add-ons, this can cause frequent hangs. Uninstall some of them.

Call forwarding with Treo 650

Call forwarding is not controlled by the device itself, but the switch which is serving your cell phone. Most carriers have a start code to change the number of rings before forwarding usually *74 send then press the number of second before forwarding each ring is about 3-5 seconds or something to that effect. If you contact your carrier they should be able to tell you.
