TREO 650 Phone won't work

I cannot get my Treo to go into phone mode - buttons nor getting at the phone from a menu work. I cannot call out or receive calls because I cannot turn the phone on. Never has happened before and did not correct with a soft reset or the reset where you hold the UP button and push the reset button. HELP!

    I too have the same problem, my phone works in palm pilot mode but when i try to power the phone on to make calls the welcome screen comes up but then the phone stays off or sometimes it says network search and when i try to make a call it says "the phone is off would you like to turn it on now" does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Okay, this is too strange. It is May 26th, 2008 and I also have the same problem. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi. I just had this. I deleted dome messages out of the phone, phone did a soft reset automatically and then I couldn't get to the phone screen. Never happened before in almost two years. Funny thing is, I could use my email package, it asked me to turn the phone on which I did from inside RoadSync, so the phone was connected to the Vodafone UK network but the phone screen wouldn't come up. I did a hard reset, restored using BackUp Buddy (if you don't have get it, it's great) and that fixed it, although the Treo did do a couple of soft resets. These happened when I selected a note against an item in my DateBk5 display screen. Never happened before. The only further problem was when I HotSynced: calendar sync hung, so I had to change the sync process to PC overwrites handheld for calendar - handheld overwrites PC wouldn't work, it hung too. No problem as I sync regularly. All okay now, it seems but I have another refurbished phone on order 'cos I run my life from this thing.

I experienced the same problem while traveling this weekend. The green phone button and anything associated to the phone all of a sudden stopped working. No call out and none in. I hotsync'd and also did a "hard reset" except I said yes and then went in and hotsync'd again. Phone now works again and all data is back

I was having the same problem and finally got it working by starting to do a hard reset, then selecting 'No' when prompted to erase all data. See PalmSupport for details. I then installed the software upgrade for good measure. (Treo 755p)

Performing a hard reset on a Treo 650will erase everything on the smartphone. Most people do this because of trouble with the Treo 650's software. There are several key stages to performing a hard reset. Follow these steps to learn how to do it properly.
  1. HotSync the Treo 650 to your computer to ensure that you have all of your information backed up. You will lose everything on your Treo 650 with a hard reset.
  2. Step 2 Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset.
  3. Step 3 Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
  4. Step 4 Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
  5. Step 5 Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
  6. Step 6 HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process.

Restarting of phone mode

You probably have a loose SIM tray. I had a loose tray and it would just shutdown if the phone go sat down or held.

Not receiving some of my text messages

I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.

good luck

Ihave a PALM TREO butIT IS not a phone and I had the same thing happen to me.
What worked for me was # 2
If you have not tried it yet try this!
1). Press the reset set button on the back of the Palm.
2)This is a little bit more memory destructive and you might want to back up you data cause it will wipe out everything!
hold down the power key and press the reset button!
