-Power cycle it-
When my Treo goes into 'lockup' mode, I just open the back and remove the battery for a few seconds, put it back in and my Treo reboots and works fine again.

If you're actually looking to reset your Treo, you need to follow the correct instructions:

Hold k and BACKSPACE. Then hit the reset button with your stylus on the back of the Treo. Hold all three until the Treo resets, flashes white, and turns itself off.

At this point the treo will appear to be "dead". Wake it up by reconnecting the charger to it.

Do a hard reset by holding down the K and return key, and at the same time push the reset button on the back. Plug in the charger to turn it back on. You can then start over by selecting english.

Palm treo 600, hangs while picking up calls and wireless mode goes off, deleting all data


Perform a hard reset, and clear the data off the treo.

Hold down backspace and the K key. While holding both of those down, hit the reset button on the back. Hold all for a few seconds. The screen will flash white and then turn off.

Then plug it into the charger cable. It'll turn back on and get you to put in all the settings again.

Then it will work correctly.

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.

It sounds like you have a bad battery initially, but your other issues may point to a software issue or something else. Have you tried a hard reset or updating the firmware on your palm? You can go to the Palm website and click on support and then choose the TREO 600 and the provider (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc) to get the firmware updater. You will also find a User's Guide with instructions on how to hard reset the device. These two options may help you with your problem.

Palm treo reset


You want to perform what is called a "Hard Reset"

It's pretty easy. You hold the power button while you push the reset button on the back. The treo will ask you if you want to erase all the data.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, hold both for a few seconds, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes

  • Here is a explaining what I just said above:

    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).

    Deletinjg contacts.


    I suggest you hard reset the Treo 600 to remove all former data and the username associated with the phone. Press the power button next tot he antenna and perform a soft reset at the same time. Dont let go of the power button until the Palm Logo appears. Then you will see a message asking if you want to delete all data. Removing portions of the old data is not an easy task.

    How do I purge contacts from the Treo 600?


    Best would be to perform a hard reset. This will delete all your contacts, but also all your other data on your phone as well such as mail, sms, call log, settings etc.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes
