Go into your Mail preferences and change the alert status. Every time mail is pushed to your phone its alerting you

To the vibrate issue do you have email set up?
and in regards to the texting, when you get more than one text it should give you an option that says go to messages and it will take to the message list.

Palm Centro - continous Syncing problem, now phone is dead

This happened to my palm centro and i fixed it myself. :) Maybe it will work for you. What i did was take out the battery and so the phone is completely off.. then take a tooth brush with rubbing alchohol on it and scrubbed the bottom part of it that the hotsync cord goes into.. I thought this may just mess up my phone more but i plugged it back into the power cord, turned it on and it worked just fine!! Seriously, try this out. It brought me so much relief!! And chances are you either got some **** stuck up inside there, or you got the botton part wet. Hope i helped!!

When ever someone sends me a picture message, my palm centro shuts off and re-starts

that's not normal you need to contact your provider and let them know that you have problems with your phone some times n because they want your business they give you a new phone.

My battery died, when I charged, and turned my phone on all of my text messages were gone. Is this a common problem with this phone?

Usually this happens when the battery is taken out while the phone is still on, I believe the term is a hard reset. If you've been syncing your phone on a regular basis then, you should still be able to retrieve your texts.

Palm centro won't receive multiple sms

Generally, 160 is the default limit for text messages. Some carriers will allow for up to 500 characters but that's usually within the same network (e.g. Verizon to Verizon). This is why text messages often use modified words (e.g. r u ok?, lol).

Message button

the centro is a smart phone and boasts e-mail over text any day. But for those of use that would rather text, you can go to the preference menu and assign every side key and navigation key.

from the main screen press the home button, select prefs, scroll down to personal and select buttons and then change the envelope icon to messaging.

Pls make sure you rate my post.....Good Luck!! :D

Message alerts aren't working

Make sure that you have text notifications set on in the preferences section of your message options. You may have to do a reset on your device because sometimes script errors occur on the phones and causes simple things like that to stop working. Also, check to make sure that you have version 1.07 on your phone. That is the most updated version which addresses many script issues, networking issues, and volume issues, along with improved security.

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.

Unlocked Palm Centro

Are you still attached to a Sprint account? Or are you with another provider? If you are with another provider, you may not have the options of using the phone that Sprint provided ie. intrnet access or things like picture mail options. I know this occured with me when I used my Samsung device on another provider. I had to do a flash and only text and dialing out works on another provider. If it is still attached to a Sprint account then you should be able to call Sprint technical care and resolve your internet issue. But by the sound of it you are on another provider.
