    Are the other phones EVDO? You could test your theory by forcing the Treo 700P down to 1xrtt or whatever those initials are. . . . Verizon should have the code you can key in to force the 700P off the EVDO network. If the phone behaves, then you have proven the theory -- where you go with that info is another thing. Are you the only 700P user on Verizon in your area? Are you the only one with the problem?

    Just Bizarre.

    If a 700P right out of the box (with no sync to anything) has the problem -- I will not mention the clean install process.


    Can you turn off CALL WAITING? Does that cure the problem? At least this will identify/confirm that it is a call waiting interruption issue.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Are you using a bluetooth headset, or even just have a BT headset configured in the BT settings, when this happens?

    Sprint Pre & Motorola H300 BT headset

    Dead devices: Palm Pro; Palm III; Treo 600, 650, 700p, 755p; Centro
    Yes, I finally updated my tagline!

    Sounds to me like it's a network issue as well since you've had 8 replacements.

    BTW, please make your post more legible by inserting paragraphs at the very least.

    Have you tried using your phone out of your immediate area or out of florida.
    That dosent soundlike aphone problem and the fact that you are on your 8th phone prooves that.
    If you could go to an ajoining state that would put you on another network for sure andyou could get verizon to do there job. You cant be the only person in florida having that problem

    There have been batches of bad 700p's that somehow slipped by the crack team at Palm Quality Control (also D.B.A. Iraq WMD Investigations, Inc.), but as one who went through 7 or 8 Treo 600's in 18 months I've found that the quality of the 650's and 700p's, with all the problems, are much improved over the previous model. 8 replacements seems excessive, unless they are all pulled out of the same exact bad manufacturing run.

    One possibility is the OTA EVDO update possibly messing something up - but again, 8 times? I'd suspect that something in your added applications (try going a while with absolutely nothing added) and/or somehow some particular quirk about your specific area is affecting the hardware via RF or magnetics or...?

    Can you open up a sealed new one in the store and duplicate the problem?
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    We have been having all of the same problems in Asheville, NC. We bought 4, and 3 have been replaced so far, we trying a new batch today to see if it fix’s the problem.

    Has anyone been able to get Verizon to change there phone to another platform? Say Blackberry, or there such types? I am just wanting to know what we might be up too as we work though this, if the new batch of phones does not work!

    I was having the same problem of the phone resetting when on a call and a call-waiting call came in. (on a p on sprint) Happened on an important conference call too. I attributed it to some software I had installed. It happened a few times but seemed like I had to be on the call for over 20 minutes or so. Changed phones and installed only need be apps. Hasn't happened in a good while now. go figure.
