My computer won't recognize my treo 700ws. What's wrong?
I bought this phone on ebay. When I tried to connect to my computer, my computer won't recognize the device. I tried with my friend's Mac, but it didn't recognize the device at all. Phone itself is working fine. Is something wrong with the USB cable? Do I need a CD? Could anyone help me?

Are you not able to turn it ON? If you have a USB cable try plugging the USB cable into a computer, then connect the phone to it. Use a personal computer, and hope that it will recognize the device, and if it dont, it still might charge/turn it on for you. Good Luck
Based on the things that you have said the first suggestion that i could give is to try another computer install the program and see if it will sync with the Treo. That will help you isolate the probelm.
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.
I had the same problem on the connection and it turned out just to be so simple as some dust/dirt in the connection surface for the sync cable. I fixed it by cleaning the connection surface with isopropanol. That helped.
if you are using Vista ultimate, it is a 64 bit operating system and therefore palm doesn't have official support for it yet, but someone has found a solution: http://forums.palm.com/palm/board/message?board.id=windows_hotsync&thread.id=17980
Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
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.
