Help needed...multiple 800w issues


Sep 18, 2008, 1:42 PM
Hello everyone…

Has anyone who has the Treo 800W had any issues with the phone? I have been through 5 within 3 weeks and am beginning to think that another phone may be the way to go for me…

I have had issues with my contacts being deleted and the screen going blank ever few hours and not responding to anything but a soft reset…Has anyone else experienced these issues or something similar?

The people at the Sprint store have been great and swapped it out when I go back but I feel terrible that they keep having to do that…

Any advice?

I appreciate it…

this is not an issue we have seen in my store. its strange that you've had such a problem with so many replacements. do you have any software programs installed that did not come with it?

thanks for the reply. I was getting ready to give up. to answer your question I don't have anything installed on the device other than what came with the device. I really do like the phone so I would like to find a reslution. thanks for your help.

I have not any any issues like that. Mine will lock up once in a blue moon and have to reset.....

I have had the same problem! I am not happy with 800w at all! Im on my second phone after 5 trips and complaints in 3 months! The amazing thing is that the service guy doesn't even try to figure it out any more!
