Sounds like you may need to clean out your memos. Are you talking about the memo icon on the screen or do you have a memo button on the button panel. If you have a memo button, there may be something wrong with it, and you may have to use the icon.

•Enter the code: *#7370# and press Yes to confirm initialization.
•Important Notice: It is recommended that you save all important information on your phone (e.g: memo, contacts etc)
•To make a Hard Reset on a Nokia phone that is not willing to turn on, just press simultaneously these 3 buttons:
•on/off + * + 3
•Before making a Hard reset better backup all your important information: contacts , memo...etc

Having problems beaming data into memos. The system beams correctly into contacts, however, when I try to beam into memos, it only wants to receive it into docs to go. how do I change it to go directly...


have you tried soft reset? or may be hard reset but before this just make sure you backed up your data. It will revert back to default settings.

Cannot select or delete a memo item.


I had this happen and the way I got around it was to delete the memo entry from the desk top and then set hotsync so the desktop to overwrite the handheld and force the new memo data into the z22.

I don't know what the root cause is. The problem is a corrupted data file but no idea what causes this other than something that can interrupt the writing of the file data. It might happen again as all this does is fix the error not the cause. Having said that I had this happen a few times within a short time then have never had it since (a few years).

I have an entry in the memo feature of my palm. Everytime I try to access the information the palm goes black and reboots? What causes this to happen and how can I retrieve the information?


When a Palm OS device reboots like that, it shows that there is a driver conflict. Somewhere along the line some software that was installed is conflicting with other software on the device and causes the reset. I would suggest deleting applications from the device one by one and testing after each to see if the reset is still happening. If you are using the Palm Desktop software that came with the device and performed a Sync (backup) after you created the Memo... it should be saved and accessible in the Desktop software (Memo tab). If no Sync was performed after creating the Memo, you will need to remove applications one at a time until the software conflict is removed allowing you to run your device without the constant reboots. It's a bit of a tedious process, but the only solution if you didn't back up the device after creating the memo you are trying to retrieve.

Hope that helps

Need a phone reset


Part 1
Soft Reset


A soft reset tells your handheld to stop what it's doing and start over again. All records and entries stored in your handheld are retained with a soft reset. After a soft reset, the Welcome screen appears, followed by the General Preferences screen.

Use the reset tip tool (see below), or the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip), to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.

Reset Tip Tool: On most PalmOS handhelds, the stylus that comes with your handheld has a reset tip inside. To use it, unscrew the barrel from the stylus quill.

Double-Soft Reset

If your device doesn't seem to want to power up after a soft reset, and you've checked the other obvious solutions (fresh batteries, power button, contrast wheel, contrast button) you may want to try the 'Double-Soft Reset'. Simply perform a soft reset as directed above, but press the reset button twice in quick succession.


Warm Reset

A warm reset bypasses any system extensions (such as HackMaster hacks, OS patches, Alarm settings, etc) that are loaded on your handheld. Sometimes a damaged third-party application will try to respond to a reset but will fail and cause the handheld to 'hang'. Using a warm reset, you can start the handheld, then delete the damaged application before it has a chance to try to run again. After deleting the application, follow with a soft reset to start up the handheld normally.

To perform a warm reset:
  1. Press and hold the upper half of the scroll button on your handheld.
  2. Using the reset tip tool (or a similar object without a sharp tip), gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.
  3. When the Palm Computing Platform logo appears on the screen, release the scroll button.

If you're not sure which application is damaged, you can use a tool like ResetEmu in conjunction with a warm reset to help pinpoint the offending application.

Hard Reset

With a hard reset, all records and entries stored in your handheld are erased, except for the default or specimen databases predefined by the manufacturer (but see Extended Hard Reset below). Formats Preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings. You can restore any data previously synchronized with your computer during the next HotSync operation. If you're running OS 3.1 or earlier, and you're not using a third-party backup utility like BackupBuddy, you may need to reinstall your third-party applications.

Never perform a hard reset unless a soft or warm reset does not solve your problem.

To perform a hard reset:
  1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the handheld.
  2. While holding down the power button, use the reset tip tool (or similar object without a sharp tip), to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.
  3. Release the reset button.
  4. When the logo screen appears on the screen, release the power button.
  5. When the message appears on the handheld screen warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld, press the upper half of the scroll button on the front panel of the handheld to complete the hard reset and display the Digitizer screen.
Pressing any other button instead of the upper half of the scroll button will perform a soft reset.

Extended Hard Reset

An Extended Hard Reset will completely erase your handheld, and will also bypass the creation of some default databases.

This differs from a normal hard reset, which will automatically create the databases for the built-in applications, and will insert some specimen records into those databases: numbers for Accessories and Technical Support will be created in your Address database, a registration reminder will be created in your ToDo database, and several helpful memos will be created in your Memo database.

In addition, a normal hard reset will also create a Network database with some default Network profiles for your Network panel in Prefs, and a file of several default MIDI alarm sounds will be created.

If you have the Notepad application, a normal hard reset ensures a sample note will appear on your NotePad, and if you have the Mail application, an email message from 'Mail Help' will be automatically inserted in your handheld Inbox.

An Extended Hard Reset will ensure that all of these startup files are not created.

If you decide to perform an Extended Hard Reset and install one or more third-party applications that expect to see the built-in databases present, you may encounter an error. For this reason, it's suggested that after an Extended Hard Reset, you run each of the built-in applications (Datebook, Address, ToDo, Memo, and if installed, NotePad and Mail) at least once to ensure empty built-in databases are created.

After an Extended Hard Reset, you will not be able to select alternate alarm sounds for Datebook alarms, but the default alarm sound will still be heard for appointments with alarms set.

To perform an Extended Hard Reset:
  1. Hold down the power button on the front panel of the handheld.
  2. While holding down the power button, use the reset tip tool (or similar object without a sharp tip), to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the back panel of your handheld.
  3. Release the reset button.
  4. When the logo screen appears on the screen, release the power button.
  5. When the message appears on the handheld screen warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld, press and hold the upper half of the scroll button on the front panel of the handheld.
  6. While still holding down the scroll button, press, in any order, the Datebook button, the Address button, the ToDo button, and the Note/Memo button.
  7. Release the scroll button, to to complete the hard reset and display the Digitizer screen.
Pressing some but not all the buttons while holding the scroll key will result in a normal soft reset. Pressing no buttons while holding the scroll key will result in a normal hard reset.

without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button inside the hole
on the back of your handheld.
2... Wait for the Palm Powered™ logo to appear, and then release the power button.
3... When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your
handheld, do one of the following:

Memo on blackberry 8310


On 8310 the MemoPad may be located in the Applications folder on your Desktop. If you can not locate it, you should download and install the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Manager software from: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=DA5FB46338C8C0DCB1039F7898184FC5

Once installed, connect your BlackBerry to your computer via the USB sync cable. Open Desktop Manager, and click the Application Loader. On the right, you will see Update your device software. Click the Start Button, and if your BlackBerry is not on the latest Handheld Software, an update will appear. Select the update, and run the install. Be sure to select the option that backs up and restores your data. Once started, do not shut down your computer, or disconnect the USB sync cable as this could damage the device.

Once completed, your BlackBerry will restart and you will have the latest version available. This version has been known to correct various issues.

Memos Lost


Download an app called DBscan and run the scans. Then let it fix any problems it finds. This should help. Also, if you have synced before, you can try a hard reset, then re-sync. Another thing to try is the hard reset and sync if the Database on the PC is not corrupted...
