I am able to connect this Treo 850w to just about any workstation except for a Dell E6400 laptop. Sprint and Palm both say they have not heard of any issues yet so I figured I'd ask here.
When I connect the Palm device to any USB port on the E6400 laptop you can see the new drive show up under Explorer, but then it quickly goes away again. Then it comes back... then it goes away... over and over again and you really cannot do anything with it.
I have tried logging in as different users to the laptop and tried safe mode, both produced no change. Again, the Palm connects to other workstations and laptops without an issue, and I can connect any other phone/USB device to this laptop without a problem so I'm starting to ... (continues)
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 meÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
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 resetÃ¢â‚¬Â¦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 thatÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
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!
I have two persistent problems and am wondering if anyone has similar experience or suggestions.
1) My 8GB HD Data Card frequently becomes "unreadable" beyond one or two directory levels. I go to use the file browser to look for and all directories on the data card appear to be empty or contain only subdirectories, no files. A soft reset fixes the problem.
2) Often times my phone just locks up -- stops responding to anything. Again, only a soft reset fixes this.
Both problems are happening at least once per day.
Please forgive me for my ignorance - I am not currently a user of these types of phones. However, I am getting an 800W this week specifically because I need to have access to my business e-mails as soon as they arrive. My question is - I just watched the quick info video on the 800W and they specifically said that you can "read Outlook e-mails as they arrive". Does that mean that I cannot read (or get alerted to) OTHER e-mails (such as AOL) as they arrive?
I am on my 6th Treo 800w (3 in the last 5 days)and Sprint cant do anything but give me a refurb which is understandable. So I call Palm and they tell me it will take 10 days if I send it in for repair OR they can send me a warranty replacement for 29.99 (why would I do that if Sprint keeps doing it for free)? THEY THEN told me that it was Sprints network as to why the phone doesnt work AND I should of researched the phone before purchasing a phone that I do not know how to use. I found that VERY insulting! When is enough enough? Am i going to keep getting a crappy phone replaced over and over and Palm not do anythign about it? I know why Palm sucks. They make phones that are crap and dont do anythign about the ones that dont work. I was real... (continues)
This isn'tlike the normal wm phones where you can just copy and drag files to the rings directory. Does anyone know how to customize ringers? In settings it's already set as the desired file but it still defaults to the treo ringtone. Please get back to me with this!
Anyone else experiencing charging problems with their 800w? I thought my car charger was defective or the wrong one (bought from Sprint store, but it wasn't the one that was suppose to be for 800w, just the one they had that they said worked with it). Basically it will charge while it's on, when the screen goes dark (sleep mode, whatever) then it stops charging. Within a minute or two the screen will come on again, but just a white screen, it will charge then a minute or two later the screen is off again and the unit is not charging.
Again, I thought this might be the car charger until I noticed it doing this when plugged in at my desk.
I charge it overnight in a drawer in my nightstand and I'm assuming since it does this in the car a... (continues)

Treo is a much better option for someone looking for both media and Data capable phones. BB has more of a business only feel while Palm has both. Dont get me wrong curve is a nice phone but if I had a choice palm hands down. Here's why better apps, To... (continues)
i just got my 800 and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for sites with great treo 800 updates, apps, homebrews, hacks, etc
so far i love this phone. i had a 650 and i finally decided to give in and buy the 800w. no regrets here. and the battery life isnt that bad, u just need to end tasks so they dont run in the background
Did anyone return their Instinct for the TREO 800w?
Just curios because I was promised a lot more from the Instinct at the store only to later find out that Sprint had no intention of providing what I wanted. I at least wanted the ability to read email attachments. I didn't need the ability to edit them but at least read my Word, Excel, or even PDFs while I was mobile. That was my breaking point.
I ended up giving the instinct to my wife when I got the treo. I'm a long time windows mobile user and she has never had anything more the a razr so she is very very happy with the instinct. And I couldn't be happier with the treo. 😁
I have it on decent, yet changeable, authority that Verizon will NOT be carrying the Treo 800w because it has failed Verizon's testing department over and over and over again. This is a regular issue for Palm devices, not just the 800w. For instance... (continues)
Question for anyone/everyone who might have some info on this phone. I got the 700w and due for an upgrade Oct 6th. I'm crossing my fingers that VZW is gonna pick up this phone for a better Blackberry, I'd rather have the 800w. Does anyone know FOR SU... (continues)
Have you seen the negative press on the iphone, go read engadgetmobile.com and look at all of the issues they are having. There has already been 3 software updates in less than a month. Thats just ridiculous.
The iphone was rushed to market and a... (continues)
I like the 800w, but I like the look of the Pro better. I have been looking at various qwerty phones, and I have decided to get the Treo 800W when the extended battery becomes available. The feature I like best is the speed of the phone. It might be n... (continues)
