Question about Palm Treo 500 Centro

2 Answers

Centro GSM unresponsive at times

Every now and then, my Centro needs about 10-20 seconds to "contemplate" before executing a call after I enter the number or choose a phone book entry and press the green button. This unresponsiveness has also occured a couple of times in other applications, such as e-mail. I first thought it was related to Versamail fetching mail in the background, but it happens at other times as well.

My Centro freezes too on AT&T. I replaced it and the new one freezes. The solution?! Upgrade to Blackberry, which AT&T says it will do. THAT will make Palm fix the problem!

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.

Phone sceen turns on. fully charged. touch screen works. Phone doesn't turn on. Phone off displays after I have touched the on/off switch.


With the phone screen showing, press the red button at the right-hand side and hold it for about two seconds. The Centro should display a "Welcome" screen, then after a few seconds the phone screen should reappear with the carrier name at the upper left instead of "Phone Off". Each time you press and hold the red button the phone switch on/off..

Palm centro wont boot


Do a reset. You will lose all items on you device.
Take battery out. Put it in and hold the power button on till you see the palm logo the second time. Release when you see the 2nd logo. It will prompt you for pressing up to delete and reset. Press Up. It will take some time to reset and reformat but please wait. 
After that your phone should come to the setup screen. I would hotsync after you setup to get your contacts  back.
