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?
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
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.

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 (www.palm.com) 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.
Can you hear it ring when u try to call ur number using a different phone? If yes, maybe it isn't aligned properly or check the connector. If no, the software is crashed, it needs a software reflash/reprogram
Which Carrier? If other than the 700w (in which case your carrier would be Verizon) then which of the following carriers do you use: [700wx] Alltel, Bell, Tellus, Verizon or Sprint, [700x]
Alltel, Bell, Tellus, Verizon or Sprint, Cellular South?
Take it to your provider and have it activated for Web Enabled Services.
make sure first of all that there arent any screws missing or loose in the back by removing the battery cover....thats can cause the keypad buttons to not have a good connection to circuit board... if thats ok then you can use a toothbrush and some alcohol (denatured alcohol if possible) to rub and clean the keypad. If all that fails, I know that Sprint offers repair for their phones.
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.
