    Thanks, Peter. I tried the Zero Reset but again, to no avail.

    Thanks James, but I've owned this Treo for three-four years and in fact had to get a replacement unit after my first three months of ownership. It's been furstrating dealing with the quirkiness of the 650.

How long have you had the 650?  Palm offers a 12 month warranty with all of their treo's.  It's very possible that Sprint will exchange this product at no charge.  I have found the 650 to be the most unstable treo ever made.  I had replaced 13 of them before finally switching to blackberry.  That does not mean you will suffer the same issues.  I would use the palm/sprint warranty if still available.

Palm Treo 700W Smartphone is stuck on speaker phone


Soft Reset
A Soft Reset stops all active (or open) programs and "reboots" the handheld. When the Treo powers back up, you'll start with all programs closed and the unit will be ready to use. The soft reset is intended to reset the Treo if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.
The Palm Treo 750 can be soft reset by quickly pressing and releasing the tiny red button beneath the miniSD memory card door:
diagram.jpg Hard Reset
A Hard Reset wipes the internal memory and returns the Treo to its factory specs, in effect returning the Treo 750 to the state it was in when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed on the Treo after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.
power_button.jpg The Palm Treo 750 can be hard reset by pressing and holding the power button (seen left) while at the same time pressing and holding reset button beneath the miniSD memory card door. Press and hold the two buttons until the screen completely fades. When the screen returns, you'll be given the option to "Erase all data." Select Yes to complete the hard reset. The Treo will now be as it was when it left the factory and you can start fresh. You may have to perform a soft reset after the hard reset to get the unit to power on.

A last resort is to hard reset the device, but you will loose your data.

My palm treo wont turn on

mine did the same exact thing after i was texting i just clicked the screen off and went to turn it back onand it wouldnt. so i took the battery out and tried a soft reset or whatever, because itll sometimes act up. but it normally works. i called sprint, and they said to go to a sprint store and see what they can do., im praying to god they dont need to do a hard reset. id lose everything on there. ill let you know if they do anything to help. and what it is that they did. im sorry your phone is as mentally challenged as mine.

Had constant restarting phone wont turn on

Could be hardware related but I would confirm your Treo OS is the latest version. There have been a couple of updates since the Treo 650 was launched. Note that the updates are service provider specific (i.e., if you are on Sprint PCS make sure to get the Sprint PCS specific update, etc.)

Palm treo 650 wont get service

If the phone is new to you, (different story if it was working on cingular before .. let me know if it was)
It sounds like it is sim locked, the phone needs unlocking.
If you can contact the previous owner and ask them what network it was on and borrow a sim card from that network it will verify the phone isn't faulty or blocked
The previous owner may be able to get it unlocked for you via there provider else somewhere like will do it for about $15 (I'm not recommending them, just one of the first in a search) Its worth googleing "treo 650 unlock" and shopping around also check 650 forums for recommendations

Best of luck

I was told by a sprint rep. that it could be due to a software program or virus on your phone. i.e. mp3s, pirated software. My brothers phone was just replaced due to this problem, although it is an LG phone not Palm. Same trouble with the no service.
