I changed sim card, now they both display ''Insert SIM''


try taking out both cards and popping the battery on the phone.

Wait a few minutes and then turn the phone on with no card in it.

Turn it back off when it says no card found and insert the newer card and power it back up.

It seemed to keep a memory of the blank card.

My palm centro began hot syncing by itself and I could not cancel it. It coming back. I took the battery out and waited a few minutes. Now it does not turn on at all and the red light stays on.


The problem is from the connectors on the bottom getting wet, slightly moist, oily from your hands touching it or just plain dirty. This sends an incorrect signal to the phone that makes it think the cable is attached and requesting what ever action is initiated by pressing the button on the cable, which is set by default to initiate hot-sync.

Two things can make this problem bearable or even resolve it:
Clean the bottom connectors to resolve the incorrect request for action being sent and/or reprogram that cable button action to do something different, like go to the phone's home screen instead of initiating hot-sync.

I take a packaged alcohol pad like they use at the doctors office (not a cotton ball, the fibers get stuck in the grooves and deposit too much alcohol in the phone) and wipe the bottom connectors down really, really well. then let dry. two or three times of doing this _always_ fixes the problem for me. I let a lot of alcohol get in there but the pads don't contain all that much extra which is why you should use the pads to keep from damaging you phone! (they are cheap at wal-mart.)

In the meantime, reprogram what the phone does when it receives (or thinks its receiving) a signal from the cable button press. On the centro, go to Preferences --> Buttons --> HotSync, then set the app you want to activate. I use "phone" so when the problem reoccurs, my phone keeps sending itself to the keypad, not the long long process of activating and canceling hot synch.

You will have to manually launch the HotSych application from the home screen when you synch if you keep that button the same or you can just change it back to the default when resolved.

Hope that helps!

My palm 755 wont hot sync


Restart your Palm Treo 744p. Take out the battery from the phone for more than 3 min and put it back in. Switch on the phone and then try to Hot sync Again. Hopefully it will work. I am assuming that you installed the Palm Desktop software came with the phone on your computer
I have same problem once in a while when i try to hotsync with new comp and this trick always worked for me.

Phone won't start


Did you turn the phone off before removing the battery? I sure hope so. If not, you may have to junk it. My father has done that to several phones now. He pops the battery out to put the charged on in, but forgot to turn the phone off. I just recently bought him a phone that sets itself to power off when the battery cover is popped off.
