You want to perform what is called a "Hard Reset"

It's pretty easy. You hold the power button while you push the reset button on the back. The treo will ask you if you want to erase all the data.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, hold both for a few seconds, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes

  • Here is a explaining what I just said above:

    The following steps will erase all the information from your phone, if possibly try to sync your phone first.

    1. Take the back panel off to expose the reset hole.
    2. Press Power to turn on the screen.
    3. While pressing and holding End, use the tip of the stylus or a small paper clip to press and release the Reset button.
    4. Continue pressing and holding End until the Erase all data? prompt appears.

    I forgot my password on my palm treo cell phon

    unfortunately, the password is made for protection from accidental or intentional access. The only way to bypass this would be to perform a hard reset and then hotsync your phone with your computer to put your contacts back on your phone.
    For performing the hard reset that reformats your phone to factory condition, please follow the instructions below:
    1. Press and hold down the red phone key on the right side of the Treo 650 keyboard until the Palm screen appears. This will begin the hard reset
    2. Let go of the red phone button when you see the Palm screen.
    1. 3. Read the screen prompt carefully. It will ask you to press the up arrow key to proceed with the hard reset or the down arrow key to abort. Press the up arrow to continue with the hard reset.
      4. Wait for the phone to reboot. When it comes back on, it will ask you to select a language and walk you through the same introductory screens you saw when you first got the phone.
      5. HotSync your Treo 650 to your computer. When prompted, select your old username to restore all of your contacts and information. This should complete the hard reset process.

    Contact Alltell or Sprint. Here is a web page I found that shows you what phones work with what companies. It has a palm Treo Pro listed so it would seem that your phone would still work with the above companies. Good Luck.

    How to erase all contacts at once

    Honestly... your best bet would be to perform a hard reset... then sync with the computer again...  To performa hard reset, hold the power button down and press the reset button under the battery door,... The phone will ask you if you want to 'Erase All Data?'... press UP on the navigation key or press the volume up key...

    When it is done waking up and you have calibrated the screen and such, you can use activesync again to restore your old data.

    ANY DATA NOT BACKED UP BY ACTIVESYNC WILL BE LOST

    PALM TREO 700P PROBLEM HELP!!!

    While holding the power button and re-inserting the battery will prompt you to choose whether or not to erase all data. If you choose "yes" the phone will reset to factory defaults. This should be done as a last resort, but at this point the phone is not functioning at all. Once restored, you can sync it with your pc or laptop and it will import all of your contacts, notes, favorites, and calenders just as it did before. In the future you may want to think about using an SD card for documents or other important information that could be lost in the event you have to reset again.

    Good Luck
