Question about Palm Treo 750 Smartphone

Notification appears every few minutes suggests problem connecting to GPRS

A notification appears every few minutes saying "there is a problem connecting to the GPRS service in your registered home network". I have a restricted SIM from work so do not use the phone for internet connection etc. I only use the hotsync and blue tooth functions. Because this notification happens every few minutes the screen lights up, the buzzer sounds and the battery runs down. Can anyone suggest how I might be able to prevent this notification from occuring?

    like 2 weeks ago i called in to att to see how much is the data plan.and that i decide not to take it because it cost too much for my palm treo. well they figured that i got a new phone. so they asked for some numbers and they updated the system to the plam treo 750. ever since this conflict i can't send picture messages. i get that problem.

    - there is a problem connection to the GPRS service in your registered home network.

    - then i get a test that says error trying to make data connection. this may be casued by a voice call, a wired activesync connection or inncorrect network setting.

    please someone help me.
    btw. hard reset and soft reset did not work for me.

    a few months ago, i got the palm treo 750 from at&t. I started out with complete access to anything: internet, photos, etc. However, since then, my parents cancelled these functions. Now, every few minutes I get a message saying: there is a problem connecting to the GPRS service in your registered home network. I always tap dismiss but it always comes back up. How do I end this message from sending to my phone? Thanks in advance.

    The hard reset fixed the problem for me. It did come back however when someone tried to send me a picture. I had to do another hard reset to stop the prompt coming up.

    I have the same problem, it is soooo annoying that it keeps popping & beeping. Since I don't use the internet, and can't download media messages isn't there a setting that can block this for good?

    I have this problem as well. The battery life is horrible because the phone screen keeps coming on with the notifications. Soft and hard restart have not helped. Does anyone have any other ideas. I am about ready to go trade in my phone and quit this nonsense.

You need to tap the 3G. Settings. Connections. Advanced tab, Select Network. My ISP drop down. Edit. Tap and hold on anything that appears in the box. Delete. There should be no connections left in the box. Done. Repeat for anything in the My work Network. Edit. Should be empty. IF not, delete any connections by taping on and holding.

I fixed the problem by performing a hard reset. Since I did this the phone has not had any problem.

My notification music on my new Samsung galaxy s5 rings every 5 minutes. I only want notification on my emails and texts. What do I do? I've set up notification on my messages and it shows what I've...

There are a few different ways to adjust your notifications on the phone. This is difficult to answer because it depends on which app. Sometimes there are settings within the app itself so you can decide which things are going to notify you and also what the ringtone will be. In other cases you have to go into the settings for the phone and then applications and manage applications through there. It'll take a little experimentation to find the settings for each of your apps.

Lg software

I had a similar issue. I powered off phone and removed battery for 1 minute. Restarted phone and made sure both wireless and cellular were connected. Go back to "about device" and check for update. Make sure your phone stays connected to wireless or cellular service while it updates. My phone is not an LG but this worked for me, I hope this helps.

Internet crashes my htc Smart... Help?

The first time you use your device, the Connection Setup displays a notification message to inform you that it will automatically configure your device's data connections, such as 3G/GPRS/EDGE, WAP, and MMS.
  1. On the notification message, select Yes.
  2. If your SIM card supports multiple network operator profiles, the next message displays all network profile choices. Select the profile you want to use, then select OK. The Connection Setup configures your device's data connection settings.
  3. After the Connection Setup completes configuration, tap Restart. Tip: To choose the network operator manually, select Start > Settings > Connections tab > Connection Setup The GPRS/3G settings are preconfigured on your device when you applied for this service with your wireless network provider. If you need to add another GPRS/3G connection:
  4. Tap Start > Settings > Connections tab> Connections
  5. Under My ISP, tap Add a new modem connection
  6. On the Make New Connection screen, enter a name for the connection, select Cellular Line (GPRS, 3G) on the Select a modem list, then tap Next
  7. Enter the Access point name, then tap Next. You may obtain the access point name from your wireless service provider.
  8. When prompted, enter the user name and password. (Check with your wireless service provider if a user name and password are required to connect.)
  9. Tap Finish

How do I download photos from my Droid to my toshiba laptop

There are many ways to transfer files (including photos) from your Droid to your Computer. Here is a simple way:
1. Connect your phone to your laptop using the phone's USB cable. Once the connection is made, wait a few seconds for the phone to give you notification saying "USB Connected" at the top bar (aka Notification bar).
2. Tap and drag the bar down to show what's in the notification area.
3. Now tap "USB Connected" in order to select "Mount as Mass Storage Device" or "Turn On USB Storage" or any item meaning the same thing (to treat the droid as a storage device like a flash drive).
4. Once that is done, you should now see a new listing in "My Computer" on your laptop- this is your phone as a flash drive- move/copy/delete your photos and files as you would with any other flash drive.

My g1 keeps saving my music to the phone and not the sd card

this may help you get around your problem

1. Make sure the microSD card is inserted in the phone.

2. Plug the phone into the USB slot on your computer using the G1 USB cable.

3. Watch the notification bar at the top of the G1 main screen. After the computer connects on the USB port, you will see a small USB icon appear on the notification bar.

4. Drag the notification bar down and select the USB connection notification. A popup will appear asking you if you want to mount the microSD card on the computer. Select "mount." After a second, the PC should detect the card.

5. You can now copy files to and from the card like any other USB storage device.

When you're finished, open the Music app, and select the Songs icon and you should see all your music files listed. The phone will read the files and sort them by album name and artist name as well.

Laptop or phone don't recognize connection

I had the same issue, however what I DID notice up on top was a USB Connected - the USB icon. I pulled that notification up and it asked me to connect. The exacts are:

1. Plug the USB cable into the computer
2. Plug the USB cable into the phone
3. The notification up top corner left will say "USB Connected" with a USB notification icon - BRIEFLY. The text "USB Connected" will quickly disappear, but the icon is still in the left corner.
4. Pull down the notification andyou'll see "USB Connected - Select to copy files to/from your computer" - Select that notification
5. Notification "USB Connected - You have connected your phone to your computer via USB. Select "Mount" if you want to copy files between your computer and your phone's SD Card." - Select the option "Mount".
6. The "Removable Disk" notification should pop up asking you what you want to do. I select "Open folder to view files".

There is a music folder in there, or whatever else you'd like.

Hope that assists.
