if your ESN is cleared for activation then you can just call customer service and and the they can do it while you are on the phone with them. If the ESN isn't clear take your phone into your service providers store/
It sounds like you have a bad battery initially, but your other issues may point to a software issue or something else. Have you tried a hard reset or updating the firmware on your palm? You can go to the Palm website and click on support and then choose the TREO 600 and the provider (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc) to get the firmware updater. You will also find a User's Guide with instructions on how to hard reset the device. These two options may help you with your problem.
My ESN was also missing from my treo until i switched on the wireless. try it.., let it load the network then look for the ESN. note my network did not have a sim card. you may need to put in a sim card if your treo network requires it then check. good luck.
Simplest method for 'switchers':
Assume that your Treo 600 has the data you need (it does but you are focusing on your Palm Desktop in your question).
Install the Palm Desktop software again using the CD but this time, choose the option to synchronize with Outlook during the installation process. This will switch the synchronization to Treo <-> Outlook instalead of Treo<->Palm Desktop. Assuming your Treo is recently synched with Palm Desktop, this will merge the data you have in the Treo with that of your Outlook profile.
In a nutshell, make sure you have a recent synch to your PC of the 600.
Install the Treo 650 desktop software
Synch to the username of the 600
Your are done.
You should rename the Treo 600 or hard reset it (you will get data corruption if you synch two devices with the same username to one PC).
If you are paranoid, you can make a backup copy of your c:\program files\palm\ folder to begin with. This contains most of your settings and extra software on the 600. As you are an Outlook user, your personal data is probably in a PST file or it is stored in Exchange.
