Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger
Bought an unlocked (ATT branded) Treo 680 off ebay. I installed the new battery and connected to charger. After 2 hours charging light turned from steady red to green with flashing red. Disconnected from charger and charging light went red, flashing onc3e a second. the Treo seems to work but I have no SIM card in it. Other functions OK and battery did charge. I'm new to Treo. Is it broken?
Re: Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected...
Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

call the carrier in which the phone is locked to and tell them you bought the phone used and it doesnt work with your sims card ask then if they can give you the subsidy code or unlock code you will have to give them ur imei number and they will give you he code you need as well as directions that worked for me
if you are using Vista ultimate, it is a 64 bit operating system and therefore palm doesn't have official support for it yet, but someone has found a solution: http://forums.palm.com/palm/board/message?board.id=windows_hotsync&thread.id=17980

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!
ive had my phone for almost 2 months now. My old treo 680 didnt even turn on... this was a replacement. Now it seems i'm having the same problem again where the phone froze and now it wont even turn on. Its really starting to piss me off now and if anyone can give any advice besides "taking out the battery" or "hard and soft resets" it would be great.
