Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
I have a Palm Treo 700P on Verizon that is not working now.
Physically it is in great shape, but it has gone into what some people refer to as the "Death Spiral." It constantly reboots itself non-stop, over and over again. The treo will start up, get to the Access Powered screen, which will stay on for about one second, and then automatically reboot itself, over and over again. It never makes it past the Access Powered screen.
I have done Soft Reset, Hard Reset, and a zero out reset, all to no avail. I have talked with a representative at verizon (my carrier), and they said that basically there must be a start up registry error and that it is now "useless."
The Treo is out of warranty, so I can't get any help from Palm directly.
Is this something you have experience fixing? If so, can you give me an estimate of the cost to repair?
Thank you in advance,
I had a similar problem, did a hard reset, reloaded my applications, and the problem came back. I finally narrowed it down to "clock" related apps. I had several, so I deleted most, and the problem went away.

I just encountered exactly the same issue.
Was using the phone ended the call and was about to place a call when it started the Death Spiral.
All reset options have no effect. Putting the battery in while holding the sync button will produce a color pattern but no functions are available.
I did call Palm USA tech support - apparently they are aware of the issue but have no free solution that they would offer me - for $199 I could send it to them for repair.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
