Question about Palm Treo 650 Handheld

1 Answer

Resurrection My treo go wet and would not get past re-boot. Showed the palm logo then nothing. Sprint repair looked and said get new phone. The next day it came alive and worked a few days. My new phone arrived to transfer stuff the day after old phone screen goes to Red Green Blue White. The top left corner of screen now sez bootload v 0.19. Any thoughts on any chance of transfering data from toasted treo to new phone. I have not synced in a year.

Sadly the chances are not high. the bootload screen tells you that Palm OS has not even loaded, assuming you have tried a soft reset this would suggest that the devices memory is either inaccessible or damaged. Anything you try is going to be a slim chance but what do you have to lose by trying? If you reset your palm with it plugged in to your PC via a USB cable there's a small chance you may force it to act as a USB memory reader, as such it will show up in My Computer as a drive or if you have a memory card in the phone it will show up as 2 drives. I cannot stress enough that this is a slim chance though. If you are familiar with telnet and serial data communications it is stall possible to access a palm this way and possibly find your data, however this is a very involved procedure that will require a steep learning curve if you don't know what I'm talking about and still represents a very slim chance.

My treo 755P (Sprint) screen shows 6 RGB squares only!

Try to at least get the PDA to boot up. Once it's fully loaded, back up all your data. Check for any additional software update which should be the cause of your problem. Download this update and re-sync all your data. If you don't want to mess with backing up your data, then here is the manual way to reset your device: take out battery, wait 30 seconds and replace battery while holding up navigation key until palm logo appears. Let go and the PDA will prompt you to erase all data ( To accept is up, to decline is down"). Hope I can be of an assistance. Thanks.

Removing (unlock) subsidy lock on Sprint Treo 6500

If you are a Verizon customer with a Verizon account and the Palm is a Verizon labeled phone, the support people will be able to assist you with transfering the phone to your account.

Since this is a Sprint labeled and logoed phone, there may be a bit more work to get this locked to your account. You will need to have a Verizon technician assist you by calling their support line and explaining your situation. You will need to verify with them that the phone has a clean ESN and they will ask you for that number to check. They will be able to get you on their network if the ESN is clean and your account is in good standing. There are a number of sites and blogs dedicated to this very issue. Just search for your phone on the internet and you will find them and what to do to have your phone switched over.

As far as changing the splash screen from Sprint to Verizon, that requires software and understanding where the image files are located. This is not a task for the novice. Again, when you look through these sites, you will find the information on how to change these items, how to back up your phones data dump, and how to read the different categories these items are located in. Be can destroy your phone if you are not careful.

Good luck.

No internet access with palm treo 700w

Sad to say - you need to go get out your phone bill and call Sprint - they may need to fix their end of the internet connection. They often disconnect services you have paid for and can't use. In any case their tech support is pretty good. They can also reset your password and let you know your text message address.
