Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

Freezes at palm screen

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I haven’t added anything new, but I did go and buy a Centra cell phone that came with its own desktop software (this may have added something). I set it up on my desktop, which removed the older version of my palm desktop software and everything was fine. I set up two separate accounts one for my T3 one for the Centra. I was setting up my T3 for Bluetooth and it had a fatal error. (this was a few days later, after I sync’ed and had been using it with no problems). I had to hard reset but it still hung at the palm screen. I finally had to take off the back and disconnect the battery. It came up, but one of the icons on the extend screen was missing and it kept crashing when I tried to do anything. Since then I have:
1. Removed the new desktop software and installed v 4.1.4 . That might be the same version from Verizon, but I got it from the Palm Page (I am not sure what v I was using before).
2. Slicked my palm and reinstalled the original OS. That worked. (The icons were fixed and it operated ok).
3. Tried to resync, but received a fatal error in the process. After reset, I am right back were I was. Now even disconnecting the battery will not reset it.

Oh, at sync, I did not install the quarantined 3rd party software per the pop up screen.

I am sure I left out some important detail, but I am a little panicked. I am pretty sure my data is safe, but we all know how dependent we get on these little pocket brains… besides, it’s my friend.

I had a TREO650 and have replaced it with a Treo700wx. I want to have the Palm Desktop information on my new phone.


With this method of upgrading your handheld, you'll transfer all PIM¹ data from your existing user name to your new handheld with the same user name. You will also transfer all third-party applications to your new handheld. Caution: Some third-party applications may not be compatible with your new handheld. Your handheld will crash, freeze or display an error when these third-party applications conflict with your new handheld. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.
  1. You must install the version of Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager included on the CD-ROM with your new handheld, even if you already have an earlier installation on your computer, and even if you will synchronize with Microsoft Outlook. This ensures that the desktop components of any new handheld features are added.
  2. Put the new handheld's CD-ROM² in the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Follow the installation instructions that appear.
  4. When prompted, select the existing username of your old handheld.
  5. During installation, you will be asked to perform a HotSync operation. Use the same existing username as above.
  6. Once installation is complete, your PIM¹ data and third-party applications will be transferred to your new handheld. Your new handheld will have the same name as your old handheld.
  7. To avoid confusion, change the name on your old handheld once you're sure that you have all your data transferred to your satisfaction. If you're going to sell or give it away, you may wish to perform a hard reset to erase all your personal data.
  8. With this method, you have a greater likelihood of encountering third-party application incompatibilities. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.

Copy Contacts from Palm Centro to SIM Card


When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.
Google Sync details: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/
You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your new phone.

Install software


You will have to unzip it locally on your computer then take the program and add is to the Palm desktop installer program on you computer.  Palm may issue an error if it doesn't recognize it in the correct format when adding it to the Palm desktop installer.

Suncing Media, Photos, Videos and MP3


The Palm Desktop Manager, which is free on the Palm website, can sync all your media to and from your phone. Here is the site, just choose the right OS for your computer.

http://www.palm.com/us/software/palmsoftware.html

When you sync your phone to your PC, it will ask you initially for what you want to sync. You can also do this anytime when you open up the Palm Desktop Manager on your PC. You can drag and drop your MP3s to the music folder on the Palm Desktop Manager and then sync it to your phone. This is the easiest way to get the MP3s on your phone.

You can also move photos/MP3s from your phone to your PC by using a 1GB SD card (the TREO 650 cannot accept any size larger than 1GB, trust me!). Copy your photos/videos/MP3s from your phone to the SD card and then take the card out of your phone. Use a USB Card Reader and connect it to your PC to read the SD card you just removed.

Good luck.

Palm treo 750


try a reset, if that doesnt work, then we can try a hardreset witch also removes all your files from the phone.

If a hardreset doesnt work then the phone is in need of repairs.
