Question about Sprint Palm Centro Smartphone

2 Answers

Can I hook up sprint phone that's still in another person's name?

My boyfriend just bought me a used Palm Centro Sprint phone. I called sprint (my cell carrier) to switch service to the palm phone and they said they couldn't because the phone is still in somebodies name. There is no service to the phone but Ive been told that it was reported lost by the previous owner so that he could file an insurance claim & get a new, updated replacement. Is there anything I can do?

Talk with sprint again and ask if a new sim card registered to them will effect a change as you are the new owner
also talk with your local police as to the legality of you getting the phone as it is a stolen/lost item
really the best idea would be to junk it and get a new phone from a sprint shop or any other phone retailer
A ,lot less hassle

SOURCE: MY PALM CENTRO [SPRINT] IS STUCK ON HOT SYNC MODE.

It keeps on syncing. Answer!!!
If this happens. Try taking out your memory card.
(The little flap on the right edge of your Centro, that you have to take the back off first.)
Once your card is out, do a sync.
(I did a hard reset after I took out my M.card.)

I think my M.card was ruined when I got this new phone & they did a switch to it with my phone/contact numbers. So maybe if they take out the M.card before they do a contacts switch over may save your card.

My phone is slow all the time what should i do


you can always try deleting old txt, using a background from your phone, or bringing it to sprint and having the OS reflashed. but after a little bit of research the OS on the Centro is unstable and buggy by nature so there is a posibility that the phone you purchased is just a bad egg.

Palm centro won't display pictures


you have to go to the net and go into internet options, select the advanced option and turn picture display mode back on. Sprint deviced call this mode "fast mode", where pictures are not displayed to increase internet speed. Just make sure the setting shows that pictures will be displayed and your good to go.


GOOD LUCK!!!!

Palm centro will not power up


One word: RIDICULOUS. My Centro randomly Hot Synced one night, and never worked again. I went to a Sprint tech 5 times, literally. I had the insurance coverage and they order me a new phone. When I picked up my new phone, the tech turned it on in front of me. I go home, charge it up and NOTHING. Went back down to Sprint tech. Sprint does not cover the battery of the phone, and they gave me my OLD battery with my new phone. The phone worked with the tech's battery though (?). They gave me a new battery, go home charge and...nothing happens again. Went back, they checked my charger, and everything looked fine, except they had no clue what was happening. I still have the phone that I can't sell because it has all my info in it.

In the end, I went to Verizon, and ate the $200 termination fee. I called Sprint and said fix my phone or eat the termination fee, and they gladly waived the term fee!! TRUE STORY. The grass is greener at Verizon. They help you save money on your plans, seriously! You may think this sounds like a Verizon commercial, but after 6 years with Sprint, I wish I made the move earlier, much earlier. Search the internet for loopholes on how to cancel your contract without paying! Good luck!!

Are you still attached to a Sprint account? Or are you with another provider? If you are with another provider, you may not have the options of using the phone that Sprint provided ie. intrnet access or things like picture mail options. I know this occured with me when I used my Samsung device on another provider. I had to do a flash and only text and dialing out works on another provider. If it is still attached to a Sprint account then you should be able to call Sprint technical care and resolve your internet issue. But by the sound of it you are on another provider.
