    Well, I had many Treo 650s when they were initially released, and they constantly spontaneously reset on a daily basis.

    This was not a software issue; even plain 650's reset frequently.

    I recently had to swap of a 650 with a "new" one.

    No more reset problems!

    Hardware version B seems to be the deciding factor.

    This has reduced my cursing significantly.

    So I would recommend hardware version B to all.

    I can agree with you. I too had software issues w/version A, since switching to version B it's been pretty solid!

    Do your Hardware B devices have the yellowish tint to the screen?
    Actually come to think of it, I've had a Hardware A with that screen.

    If it does it really doesn't bother me nor do I see the difference.

    I have A hardware from Cingular. Our company is international so ours come unlocked, don't know if that makes any difference or not. Originally came with 1.15 firmware. Upgraded to 1.17 and it has been pretty stable. I have tried a couple of programs that caused major problems such as Galactic Ranger sent the poor PDA into a reset loop that I had to do a hard reset to get out of, but other than that I have had very few resets.

    I also have hardware A on both my Treo's and haven't had 1 reset on either one in the 4 months I've had them.

    Can anyone who has traded Hardware A for Hardware B tell us how to get that done?

    Thanks!

    I have 2 version A's right now, and one has the screen with whiter whites, and one is yellowish. BUT the one that is yellowish displays dark colours with more intensity then the screen that displays whiter whites. The darks are overexposed in fact in photography terms with the whiter display. So, its a trade off it seems. Even the button lights have that yellow or whiter tint.

    I have a Rev.A GSM unbranded and I do get a reset once in a while. Often its when I remove it from my car charger and immediately hit the phone button. Sticking a piece of paper in the SIM tray behind the chip helped with random resets as well.
