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.
Did you poke the reset hole in the back of the palm? This does a reboot. You can try that, or try plugging it in to charge and while it's charging poke the reset hole (this is supposed to reset the charging mechanism).
You can use a FREE program for the palm OS called minitones, you can yahoo or google it, which will allow you to convert mp3s you have on your SD card or on the phone to a ringtone that you can assign to a contact. minitones.prc
