Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

1 Answer

Palm Centro AT&T got wet;

My 6 day old palm centro supported by AT&T fell out of my pocket into my toilet. Took it apart after a couple hours but had no tools to open entire unit. After letting it air dry for 5 days, I put it back together. Immediately the hotsync screen came up. So I hooked to my computer and let it hot sync. Now that's all it wants to do. I was able to call and check messages and get to home page for about 5 minutes. Now, it sounds as if a button is being repeatedly pushed ~ I can hear a "doing" sound and it keeps wanting me to hotsync. When hotsync is comlete, it does it over and over again. So I disconnected from computer and took out battery again. When put back together, it still wants to only hotsync. Can this ever be fixed or should I give up?
SO sad to finally have a great phone and it seems as if I'll be returning to my 8-year old flip phone ~ and NO I didn't have insurance ~ and Yes the dot inside is quite red :-(

Hello elmorenocali,

The hotsync information in the Centro User Guide is very thorough and is mainly in chapters 2, 10 and 12. I hope the user guide helps with the hotsync problem. Here is a download link for the Palm Centro User Guide:

How do i tranfer my contacts from my palm centro & another palm centro?


First, make sure you backup all of your data, including data in any 3rd party apps.
Sync your first Palm Centro with the Palm Desktop software to save the data.
Verify the sync settings in the Palm Desktop software to make sure when you begin syncing with the new Palm Centro, the settings for each application (contacts, calendar, memos, etc.) are one-way sync to the device, or you might end up overwriting the data in your Palm Desktop software with what's on the new Palm Centro.
When you sync your new Palm Centro with the desktop software the first time it will ask you to name the new device. If you give it the same name as the old Palm Centro, all of the data will sync to your new Palm Centro.
Search your computer for a folder with the name "Palm" in it to try and locate the name of your old Palm Centro, so you can name the new Palm Centro the same. When you locate that folder on your computer, it would be a good idea to simply make a copy of that folder as a total backup.

I got my Palm Centro wet. I took the screws out


do not put your phone in ANY liquid, even rubbing alcohol! any liquid puts your phone at risk of corrosion in places you cannot see. even if it works fine now, that is no guarantee that there is not still small amounts of moisture inside that may still cause damage later. take your phone apart, put all the pieces of your phone in a ziploc bag of uncooked rice, and LEAVE IT IN THERE for at least 24 hours. having the battery in at all when there may be moisture inside puts your phone at risk for more damage. save yourself trouble later by leaving it alone in the rice for as long as you can. two days would be better.

Palm Centro hearing


I hate to sound obvious but have you checked the volume setting? Took me a few days to realize they were there - I almost never read the manual. :) The two volume keys are on the left of the phone as you look at the screen. Hope this helps.

Transfer of treo programs to Palm Centro


The Centro and Treo are virtually identical. Have you tried reinstalling the applications from scratch on the Centro (vs. relying on Palm synch to automatically synch all applications)?

Flash not compatible on Palm Centro


Flash is not available on Centro - unfortunately. The new Palm Pre (coming soon from Sprint) is rumored to support Flash.
