Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

1 Answer

Centro GSM freezes on incoming calls

Once every 5-10 times my Centro becomes totally unresponsive on an incoming call. When trying to answer, the screen freezes with the "answer" and "ignore" icons still on the screen and no sound. After about 30 seconds, the phone responds to key presses again, but tells me that I haved 1 missed call. Very annoying.

    My Centro doesn't respond
    ("freeze") on incoming calls up to 10 times a day. The
    "answer" button (on the screen) and green "send" button
    (next to "phone") block and it is impossible to accept the incoming
    calls. It is necessary to perform a soft reset to solve the problem temporary.
    Even after hard reset the situation is the same. This is very
    frustrating for a new device. Sometimes, frequent callibration of the screen
    from the "Preferences" menue delays the freezing effect. AFAIK the
    problem is software-related, considering the recovery after reset. Is there any update on the palm
    support page / forums,
    related to the problem? I couldn't find any. From time to time, there is
    onother problem I experienced - from the contact menu it is difficult to dial the selected number. Sometimes it is
    necessary to press “dial” several times
    resulting in significant delay.

    I have a french centro with firmware version G.R01.13 and software version Centro-1.02-ROW with the same problem : about every 10 calls the screen freezes and I can do nothing else than remove the battery and soft reset the device.

    Jup, same problem here. Often fails to answer calls, I always have to call back. When I answer, the phone freezes. You don't have to reset, wait 10/15 sec and it resumes operating after saying "you missed a call"... yeah, thanks, I know...



    Calling someone doesn't make it freeze, but the phone simply refuses to dail or there's a major delay between it actually dailing and pressing the button. Goes for either calling from the contacts list or using the dial pad.



    Tried hard and soft resetting, does not help.

    I haven't experienced the problem mentioned above for some months now. Problem is, I don't know what made it go away. Only thing I can think of that happened about the same time it went away is that I installed TAKEphONE from Shsh. Maybe that application does something good with Centro's phone functionality. I guess you could try the application (note: I am not trying to help the software developer to sell) and see if it does anything for you. Other than that I can't think of anything that I have changed.

    Regards,

Centro will not send or recieve calls or emails, shows no incoming signal (at&t)phone comes on all apps seem to work just will not send or recieve


if you don't card what you have in your phone, just try to hard reset your phone (everything will gone, and setting will be taken)..........

unless your phone has problem, then you should be fine.
make sure that you are using a AT&T SIM card (or you can ask anyone who using ATT service, then try their sim card)

My phone will not ring on incomming calls, what should I do?


Make sure that you do not have it on vibrate. It's very rare that external speaker goes out but that could be a problem. You would need another speaker if your device is not set to vibrate.

My palm centros being ******* gay


The phone and OS in a palm device are, for the most part, separate devices. If your calls and your device are both messing up the problem is almost certainly hardware. Since this pretty much rules out software installs, reloads, or flash updates as a possible solution, your only choice would be to save yourself a lot of time and aggravation and return or replace the phone.
