A few months ago my treo 650 was only recieving about half of the text messages being sent. The text message icon was also staying on regardless of whether or not I had any new text messages. I had tried a soft reset and the phone company had tried a few things as well. The only thing they could come up with was that third party applications were causing the text messages to come in intermittantly. I had to do a factory reset and re-enter everything. Now the same thing has started to happen again. Is this the only solution to fix it again?

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.
Friend, there is something wrong in your network.contact your network provider to solve the line problem. If the message cannot be deleted then there is something happened in your memory due to line failure thats why it cannot delete. try to free up your memory.
On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?
contact cricket and get there messae centre number of them, enter this into the option on your message settings, also get them to send you a sim update and also a gprs message update this will sort all your problems
I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.
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.
