    I'm having the same problem with Sprint on my Palm 755P. My phone automatically reboots itself everytime I try to send a text message or read two unread test messages. I've spent hours at Sprint and they have exchanged my phone. However, I don't start having any problems until I perform a hotsync. This tells me that it has something to do with a corrupt file but Sprint has not been of any assistance. Please help!

    Same exact problem.. I have deleted all but three text messages, and all three are blank, no text, very weird... But it won't let me delete them.. If I try to purge, it locks up, if I try to delete, it either locks up, or reboots...

    Need help...

Can I retrieve my deleted texts from my palm centro and how?

Hello michael_s35,

This is a rather awkward procedure but it will allow you to keep a copy of your text messages on the Centro. Ready? Here it is:

A). In Text Messages
•Open the text you want copied
•Select all of the characters in the message by slowly dragging the stylus from the upper left hand character to the bottom of the text message.
•While the text is highlighted, press the menu button (at the bottom right-hand corner)
•Select Edit in the Menu.
•Select Copy in the Menu. (text is now copied to the clipboard)

B). In Memos
•Press the home key
•Go to the Main category (Main showing in the top drop-down list)
•Tap on Memos
•Tap the New button at the bottom of screen
•Press the menu button (at the bottom right-hand corner)
•Select Edit in the Menu.
•Select Paste in the Menu. (text is now saved in the memo file)

•Repeat the above procedure (A & B) for each text message you want to save.
*Each text can be appended in the same memo or saved in a different memo*
