The phone feature won't turn on!

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?

    Also can't get the phone to turn on. I try to dial a call, it asks me if I want to turn the phone on, I click "yes," and then it shows the Palm logo, as if it's about to turn the phone on, but then, the phone remains off. 


    Help!

Why my palm treo 680 always no signal?


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.

My Treo 680 automatically turns back on when I turn it off.


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??

Treo 680 freezing


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.

My palm treo 680 turns itself off repeatedly


hi dear

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 also.

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.

Good luck

Palm Treo 680 does not power up


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.
