Ever since i got my treo 680 a year ago it freezes and I have to reboot by removing the battery. It freezes when i answer the phone, when I switch from sms mode to phone mode. Not all the time but sometimes several times a day. help Thanks Fred
I had similiar problems with my 680 but the problems are gone now. Mine had to do with 2 specific add on apps, Olive Tree Bible Reader, which had a patch, and Ultra-soft Money, which had a specific issue with the budget function. I applied the Olive Tree Bible reader patch and deleted the budget function of UltraSoft money and my issues are gone.

If you encounter a poor battery life on your Treo 680 and you have to
recharge very often even if not using the phone function, the issue
might have been caused by an incorrect first charging of the device.
Please follow the steps below to solve the issue:
1. Connect your Treo to the charger.
2. Remove the battery from the Treo and wait for at least one minute.
3. Remove the SIM card from the device and wait for another minute.
4. Put the SIM card AND battery back into the device and charge the
Treo for at least 4 - 6 hours. Do NOT press any key after reinserting
the battery. Do NOT switch your TREO On or Off either, it will do so
automatically after a short time. Do NOT enter the SIM card PIN if
prompted to do so, just wait!
After this procedure, that can
be performed and repeated any time, you will now dispose of the full
charging capacity and the display of the remaining battery power works
make sure the sim card is sitting snugly in the phone and if you have recently downloaded or added and 3rd party software that can mess up the phone, had the same problem and after I went through recently added programs I removed 1 at time and found the program causing the problem...have not had a problem since...have a Treo 680 for past 2 years
I wish I could say exactly how the problem was fixed. I just know that after I was using the calculator I set the 680 down and it shut off automatically. It now seems it was in some type of endless loop, one that I couldn't get out of even after taking my battery out multiple times. The Treo 680 does have freezing type problems that I wish could be fixed... Maybe it is my Tealphone 3rd party software or something like that??
Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.
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.
ive had my phone for almost 2 months now. My old treo 680 didnt even turn on... this was a replacement. Now it seems i'm having the same problem again where the phone froze and now it wont even turn on. Its really starting to piss me off now and if anyone can give any advice besides "taking out the battery" or "hard and soft resets" it would be great.
