Sounds like it needs to be reset - Try power down, remove battery for a minute or so, insert battery and power on.

I have a white Sony Mylo . I forgot my password and cannot use it without one. How do I reset the settings or password?


IMPORTANT: This procedure will remove (reset) all passwords and delete all personal information, files and folders from the internal memory of the personal communicator.
If the four digit password that is prompted for when the mylo is started has been lost, forgotten, or does not work, a master reset procedure will need to be performed. To do this, on the mylo keyboard, simultaneously press and hold the FN , Sym and BS keys for at least 5 seconds. hope this helps.

Power off the system and wait a few seconds to make sure that hard drive has spun down.

Hold down the "Backspace" key while powering on system.

The following message should appear:
Warning: Can't restore Hibernated State.

Press any key to continue.

After pressing a key on the keyboard, the system will continue with the boot process and the hibernation/standby mode will be by-passed.

My Treo Hard resets repeatedly


Do a simulated-battery-disconnect reset. This is a harder reset then the hard reset. It will simulate disconnecting the battery at a hardware level, so it will completely toast anything on your treo that might be causing the problem. Don't worry it won't hurt your firmware or anything, just all the data will go.

Hold down the BACKSPACE key, and the K key.
While holding it, press and hold the reset button using the reset tool on the stylus.
Hold all three for a few seconds. The treo should turn white, then turn off. If it won't come back on, then you've succeeded.

To get the treo to turn back on, plug it into the charger cable. In a few moments the treo will turn back on, and ask you for your language and regional settings, just like when you first bought it.

If this doesn't fix it, you have a hardware or firmware problem that will be far more difficult to diagnose/fix.

How to make phone with dual sims work simultaneously


Dude, if you have a dual sim thats got the same number then theres no way both of them could be active at the same time... your network service provider cant connect both sims at the same time on their server, either use the one or the other, NOT BOTH

My treo is doing hard reset automatically


try performing a battery reset..it will reset the internal radio and the charging circuitry..only problem here is that u need an AC charger to switch the phone back on. this will wipe out all data u may want to back it up before trying this option heres how to do it Battery Disconnect Reset Treo 600 only A battery disconnect reset is a last resort step you can take to cut battery power, wipe all data, and regress a Treo 600 to its factory-fresh state. It only works on a Treo 600 smartphone. Important: A battery disconnect reset will erase everything on your smartphone, and also reset the wireless radio and disconnect the internal battery. All your data will be removed, and your formats, preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a battery disconnect reset unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. You won't be able to turn your Treo 600 back on until you connect it to a power adapter, so do not perform this type of reset without your Treo 600 charger and a power source. HotSync note: Some third-party applications change the way your handheld backs up data. Other third-party applications do not back up data. If you have third-party software on your device, please contact the developer to learn what components are backed up during a HotSync operation, and if HotSync conduits are altered. Any data not backed up will be lost. To perform a battery disconnect reset: 1. Disconnect your Treo 600 from the AC charger. 2. Hold down the K and Backspace keys simultaneously. (Note: for French AZERTY keyboard, press K and M; for other language overlays, please refer to the customer support for your region) 3. While continuing to hold down the K and Backspace keys, press the RESET button inside the hole on the back panel of your device (where's the reset hole?). 4. Finding it hard to do? Good. We made this type of reset very awkward to perform, so that it would not happen by accident when your Treo 600 is jostling around in a pocket or bag. Sorry for the inconvenience. You might want to ask a friend to lend a hand if you find it too difficult to do by yourself. 5. Continue holding down K and Backspace. The screen will flash white briefly, and then go black. Release K and Backspace after this happens. Your Treo will appear to be "dead" and the screen will not turn on. If you see any activity ? such as the screen turning back on ? the reset was performed incorrectly; try again 6. To revive your Treo 600, connect it to the AC charger and plug the charger into a socket. The screen will stay blank for several seconds (as long as half a minute), then it will turn on. The LED will glow solid red, indicating charging. 7. Finally, follow the steps for recovering after a hard reset (a battery disconnect reset is an extended type of hard reset).
