Hi My treo 680 pda feature works great but since 3 days i have been fighting with the phone feature to turn on ands stay on. I did soft and hard resets, got a new sim card ( I have an unlocked one and use it with T-mobile) sometime it goes right into network search and works ok for a couple of hours, then it freezez on a phone call. when I soft reset it it doesn't do the network search and just stays off. by pressing the on button it shows the "hello" but continues to say phone off. On guy from palm support said today i need a 3G simcard for it to work properly, but t mobile doesn't offer that yet. Also it worked fine for a month with the regular sim card. Any ideas?

some network providers dont provide object push which prevents the pictures from getting pushed to your mobile , but they will send the link to download the picture , report the problem to your network provider.
Four things it could be are:
1. You are in an area that doesn't provide service for the sim card you have inserted.
2. There is a bad connection inside the phone between the antenna and the main board.
3. If it is locked for a network and a different network's sim card is inserted it may cause this problem.
4. A problem with the main board or the firmware could be the culprit.
Unfortunately, unless you have experience with these phones it will be difficult to diagnose which is your problem.
HI, Here is a link that will take you to a site to download the manual. Scroll about half way down and you will see where it says guides. Click on that and there is a link to download the guide for you phone. Best wishes.
I wish I could say exactly how the problem was fixed. I just know that after I was using the calculator I set the 680 down and it shut off automatically. It now seems it was in some type of endless loop, one that I couldn't get out of even after taking my battery out multiple times. The Treo 680 does have freezing type problems that I wish could be fixed... Maybe it is my Tealphone 3rd party software or something like that??
I had similiar problems with my 680 but the problems are gone now. Mine had to do with 2 specific add on apps, Olive Tree Bible Reader, which had a patch, and Ultra-soft Money, which had a specific issue with the budget function. I applied the Olive Tree Bible reader patch and deleted the budget function of UltraSoft money and my issues are gone.
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.
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.
