Hi the problem you are having is with the settings on the phone all you need to do is contact your service provider or go into one of their shops and ask them to send you the latest mms and wap settings.
your service provider wont charge for this and they will send the messages via text message, this will then update your phone to the latest media message settings and wap for the net settings and this will then allow you to use the phone as you want to.
you can sometimes send the settings to the phone yourself via your service providers web site, how ever not all service providers offer this service so you will have to check if they have this option on their site.
the quickest and easiest option would be to give your service provider a call and tell them the make and model of your phone then ask them to send you the settings.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
I have the same problem using an unlocked Treo 650 on O2(UK).
One thing you need to do is make sure that the Message Centre Number is set correctly for the SIM network you are using. Get the MCN from the internet, then on the Treo Messaging > Menu > Options > Preferences > Network > Manual > Edit to check/set the MCN.
Hello, hope it helps (from http://www.chaddickerson.com/blog/2006/05/19/what-to-do-when-sending-an-sms-makes-your-treo-650-reboot/)
The application that causes the reboot varies, but it’s always the
same error related to the message store. Here’s how you fix it (and
beware — this deletes all the text messages on your device!):
If you don’t already have it, you need to download and install FileZ
on your Treo. All this does is give you access to all the files on the
Palm OS filesystem. This is a tool that must be used very carefully,
since you can move, copy, and delete any files on the Treo, even ones
you didn’t know were there. It’s one of the most useful Treo utilities
you can have.
Run FileZ on your phone and choose “View and Edit Files.” In the
next screen, you should see “Internal” under Filename. It might also
say “ROM.” If you have an SD Card, you should also see “External” or
Click on the little wedge beside “Internal” to expand the list of files on your Treo.
Find Messages Database and delete it (you do this by checking it, choosing “Details,” and then clicking “Delete”)
BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.
1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.
2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe
is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out
the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct
steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.
3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd
parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which
drain the battery.
Try above steps might help.
Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there
is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving
it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm
If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind
of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.
Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It
gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as
compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.
Verizon 700wx:I had the same problem. With little or no movement, the phone would go from charging to not over and over. At home with it perfectly still it would charge maybe 1/4 in 6 hours. Same problem with 3 different chargers. With the battery out, I dipped a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol squeeze out excess and jammed it into the charging port on the phone. Put the battery back in and oh **** nothing. Took it back out and let it dry for a few minutes and were back in business. No more charging problems at all.
May be a little risky, but warranty was up and what did I have to lose. Anyway good luck!
