PHONE BOUGHT ON EBAY-FLASHED FOR CRICKET-CAN'T BE PROGRAMMED
I bought my Palm Treo 650 off of ebay, from KM ELECTRONICS a reputable store. They advertized the phone as already flashed for Cricket use, but when I received my phone and tried to get it activated, the people at the Cricket store could not get it to program(*228) and said that it might have to be manually programmed. Is there such a thing, and if so, how do I do it. there was not a manual included with my phone, but I can download a copy. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

You have to dial #*#000000
This will pull up the setup screen.
You will have to get the following info from cricket...a store will tell you.
MDN #, MIN#, and CID#, leave the NID# blank.....then u should be ready to go.

These phones can be fully flashed if they are CDMA (no sim card) however on these phones the flash is very unstaible. You are much better off purchasing a new cricket phone, as you are guarenteed all of the features.
If you really want this phone flashed then you should look for an authorized cricket dealer or a store that flashes phones. Corporate locations (Full Service) do not flash phones.
contact cricket and get there messae centre number of them, enter this into the option on your message settings, also get them to send you a sim update and also a gprs message update this will sort all your problems
my treo 650 just turned of the light of the screen.thought it was only battery.i pulled out the battery then put it back again,the light is on and say palmOne with a bar loading.then the light was gone again.try to sign on but nothing does
A warranty is only as good as the company behind the warranty. If your seller is a reputable one, the warranty can come in handy in the next year. SquareTrade, for instance, is a good eBay warranty vendor.
BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.
1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.
2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe
is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out
the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct
steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.
3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd
parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which
drain the battery.
Try above steps might help.
Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there
is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving
it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm
If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind
of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.
Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It
gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as
compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.
