    Anyone found a solution?? I have a Treo 650 and Verizon and the same issue.

    700 p does the same thing. Palm support sucks. Altell will not repair. I am out a $600.00 phone. Stay away from TREO.

    Same problem. Talked to 6 techs and no help. Worst phone ever

    My treo 700p took a swim. It's defiantly got moisture in it but the battery compartment managed to stay dry. I've placed it in a zip lock with silica gel packages, and the moisture from between the lcd and the touch screen is slowly retreating. I did have it on before placing it in the ziplock, and the screen semi works, but the back light is not comming on. This backlight not comming on is a problem I had before the whole water issue.

    It seemed to be stuck in a constant network search with a red T looks like " Network Search ... T " and the t is red.

    Any ideas on what to do? I haven't taken it appart yet since that makes me kind of nervous all the ribbons etc.
    any help would be much appreciated!

Did you ever consider it's not a gsm or cdma issue. It is a device issue. You also may want to suggest some other fixes since if your phone is having this problem, you will not be able to use the "options" because the phone will not turn on. It is a radio issue. Please elaborate a little further on the posts here so people can productively troubleshoot the issues, try not to be so vague. I hope I speak for all of us. Solution # 4 was a waste of breath and our time. If you want to slam others who want to be helpful then go harass some losers in a game forum.

We're talking about Verizon phone, CDMA technology. You jump in try to to smart and talk about GSM.

Next time, read before post.

Try going to Options->Select Band. The select Automatic A or Automatic B. Mine was set to Home which did not find a network.

Try a soft reset first, then a hard reset.

Verizon suggested a hard reset on my 700w for the same problem. (Hit soft reset and power/end button at same time and hit up on keypad when prompted to reset everything and reboot)
you will loose all of your features but they say it fixes 5/10 times...

It did not work for me but I wanted to share in case.

In the phone menu, go to Options /Network search. Select the 900/1800 GSM band instead of auto. It worked for the Brazilian networks.

Soft Reset
A Soft Reset stops all active (or open) programs and "reboots" the handheld. When the Treo powers back up, you'll start with all programs closed and the unit will be ready to use. The soft reset is intended to reset the Treo if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down.
The Palm Treo 750 can be soft reset by quickly pressing and releasing the tiny red button beneath the miniSD memory card door:
diagram.jpg Hard Reset
A Hard Reset wipes the internal memory and returns the Treo to its factory specs, in effect returning the Treo 750 to the state it was in when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed on the Treo after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync / Windows Mobile Device Center.
power_button.jpg The Palm Treo 750 can be hard reset by pressing and holding the power button (seen left) while at the same time pressing and holding reset button beneath the miniSD memory card door. Press and hold the two buttons until the screen completely fades. When the screen returns, you'll be given the option to "Erase all data." Select Yes to complete the hard reset. The Treo will now be as it was when it left the factory and you can start fresh. You may have to perform a soft reset after the hard reset to get the unit to power on.

Phone frozen: The screen just shows boxes of red, green, blue and white.

Just had the same problem. When you take the battery out, leave it out for 4-5 minutes. Then when you put it in and reset while holding the on/off red button, it should start. Mind did. Good luck.

Phone calls won't connect

I have the same problem with my Verizon treo 755p. It will dial but I can't hear anything from the other end. I can receive calls but when I answer, I can't hear the person on the other end. I guess I need to visit Verizon to have them look at it or give me another phone.

Palm Treo 700P In Death Spiral

I just encountered exactly the same issue.
Was using the phone ended the call and was about to place a call when it started the Death Spiral.
All reset options have no effect. Putting the battery in while holding the sync button will produce a color pattern but no functions are available.
I did call Palm USA tech support - apparently they are aware of the issue but have no free solution that they would offer me - for $199 I could send it to them for repair.

You can do a soft reset by pressing the small indented button on the back with your stylus,: or you can do a hard reset by removing the battery and pressing the same button on the rear with your stylus. I would try the soft reset first, as the hard reset wipes all your data.

Treo 650 Stuck in "Network Search"

How long have you had the 650?  Palm offers a 12 month warranty with all of their treo's.  It's very possible that Sprint will exchange this product at no charge.  I have found the 650 to be the most unstable treo ever made.  I had replaced 13 of them before finally switching to blackberry.  That does not mean you will suffer the same issues.  I would use the palm/sprint warranty if still available.
