    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...

My palm treo 750 will let me receive text messages but won't let me send text messages


Normal 0 The best thing I can do for you is to refer you to the free palm chat. For the palm phones I have to know what service provider you use to be able to get you to the correct link. So here is a link to palm support for your phone. Click on the icon for your service provider (Rodgers, AT & T or Palm) From there you want to click on the words “support services” at the top of the page. If you have selected AT&T on the previous page you will be able to do a palm chat. The link for the free chat is located in about the middle of the page. If you have any other provider besides AT&T you have the option to start a repair ticket or if it is under warranty there is a number to call. Best wishes…I hope this will help you.

White screen

This issue only occurs when trying to send a SMS text message from within the call details screen of a call in the call log.
To avoid this issue, complete the following steps to send a SMS text message from the call log screen:
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Open the Call Log by clicking the middle button in the toolbar.
  3. Touch the call log/contact in the list without clicking the screen.
  4. Display the menu, then select SMS Text (Name/Number).
  5. If required, rotate the BlackBerry smartphone to switch to landscape mode.

Treo 650 Powers Off When Accessing Text Messages

Something probably happened that corrupted your rom, maybe try a rom editor. I've never tried it so I can't help much with that.

Message button

the centro is a smart phone and boasts e-mail over text any day. But for those of use that would rather text, you can go to the preference menu and assign every side key and navigation key.

from the main screen press the home button, select prefs, scroll down to personal and select buttons and then change the envelope icon to messaging.

Pls make sure you rate my post.....Good Luck!! :D

Not receiving some of my text messages

I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.

good luck

Text is stuck in my outbox

I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.

to the vibrate issue do you have email set up?
and in regards to the texting, when you get more than one text it should give you an option that says go to messages and it will take to the message list.

Recieving some text messages but not all

You have to check for a firmware update for your phone. It may be a bug in your BIOS.
