    Anyone found a solution?? I have a Treo 650 and Verizon and the same issue.

    700 p does the same thing. Palm support sucks. Altell will not repair. I am out a $600.00 phone. Stay away from TREO.

    Same problem. Talked to 6 techs and no help. Worst phone ever

    My treo 700p took a swim. It's defiantly got moisture in it but the battery compartment managed to stay dry. I've placed it in a zip lock with silica gel packages, and the moisture from between the lcd and the touch screen is slowly retreating. I did have it on before placing it in the ziplock, and the screen semi works, but the back light is not comming on. This backlight not comming on is a problem I had before the whole water issue.

    It seemed to be stuck in a constant network search with a red T looks like " Network Search ... T " and the t is red.

    Any ideas on what to do? I haven't taken it appart yet since that makes me kind of nervous all the ribbons etc.
    any help would be much appreciated!

Did you ever consider it's not a gsm or cdma issue. It is a device issue. You also may want to suggest some other fixes since if your phone is having this problem, you will not be able to use the "options" because the phone will not turn on. It is a radio issue. Please elaborate a little further on the posts here so people can productively troubleshoot the issues, try not to be so vague. I hope I speak for all of us. Solution # 4 was a waste of breath and our time. If you want to slam others who want to be helpful then go harass some losers in a game forum.

Try going to Options->Select Band. The select Automatic A or Automatic B. Mine was set to Home which did not find a network.

Try a soft reset first, then a hard reset.

Posted on Feb 08, 2008

Verizon suggested a hard reset on my 700w for the same problem. (Hit soft reset and power/end button at same time and hit up on keypad when prompted to reset everything and reboot)
you will loose all of your features but they say it fixes 5/10 times...

It did not work for me but I wanted to share in case.

In the phone menu, go to Options /Network search. Select the 900/1800 GSM band instead of auto. It worked for the Brazilian networks.

Bluetooth connetion with Verizon Treo 700P

Looks like your saying you've updated your n?vi 660 to software(firmware) version 2.0, if so you're moving in the right direction. Unfortunately the n?vi 660 does support the Treo 700P but only seems to support the 'Hands-free' BlueTooth profile and this is often problematical as is the 'headset' profile with some device combinations, that's precisely why many phones and devices now support both profiles. Check the pairing information to see if you're using 'headset' or 'Hands-free', whatever you're using delete the pairing on both devices and see if they will let you pair in the other profile. Your Treo 700P is made by PalmOne ( so you may want to check for software updates from them. This kind of problem is down to the lack of a solid standard for BlueTooth communications and you will often find that settings that work for one combination of devices are unstable with another. Post back if this doesn't help or if you need us to clarify anything.

Not receiving some of my text messages

I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.

good luck

Phone calls won't connect

I have the same problem with my Verizon treo 755p. It will dial but I can't hear anything from the other end. I can receive calls but when I answer, I can't hear the person on the other end. I guess I need to visit Verizon to have them look at it or give me another phone.

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.

Treo 650 Stuck in "Network Search"

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.
