Dhorner64 is incorrect. Your phone is not fried if you are in a restart loop. You need to do a "warm reset" which will not erase data. It is the equivalent of doing a safe boot in Windows. Remove the battery from your 755p, then put it back while holding the up button on the 5-way. Hold the up button as the phone starts. I had to do this frequently, then run the DataViz Tech app, which is available free from DataViz, to fix their prefs file, which was the source of my crashes. The problem was solved by upgrading to Docs2go v11. I was reluctant to pay to upgrade a crashing app, but the upgrade ended the frequent crashes. I have not had a couple resets since upgrading Docs2go, and no reset loops.

Next time you have to hard reset, and before you sync, rename the user backup folder. This will stop thrid party apps from installing.the folder is C:\Program Files\Palm\%userID\Backup
Rename it something like _back or backu_
You'll have to reinstall 2rd party apps, and I suggest you do this one at a time.
But I also recommend you get and use NVBackup. It's a FREE easy, configurable backup program that can be set to backup the ENTIRE system to the card at regular intervals [mine is 3am every day.] then you can restore in minutes without even connecting to a PC. google it... or get it here... http://mytreo.net/downloads/nv-backup,1090.html
try doing a hard reset just make sure you hotsync first so you can backup all your information. Always keep in mind the software you have loaded write it down and the website you got them from along with any registration codes. when doing a hard reset you will lose all the information and programs on the phone basically it will take you back to the way you first bought it.
