    My wife is upgrading from a 650 to a 680. Before we rid ourselves of the 650, I'd like to clear all the contact items and calendar items from the phone. Can this be done quickly/easily, or must I do this for each item?

    Probably a simple question, but I'm not (currently) a Treo user, although I may try the 650 for a while after we get it cleaned off...

    Thanks in advance.

    That also deletes any patches you might have installed. And software. I gave mine to my dad, so i did not want to do that, only remove the contacts, calendar and messaging stuff, as well as notes and so on.
    So i used a file browser for palm os and deleted the stuff. I could not delete ROM stuff, so it was pretty safe. Besides, if i ****ed up, i could always just reset it fully. But it worked fine, the software and patches was still there, but not MY data.

    From what I can tell the OP's getting rid of the phone and doesn't want anything on it; he wants it as it was when it came straight from the factory. The zero reset just scrubs clean the RAM and the internal card; it doesn't get rid of any ROM updates (if that's what you meant by "patches").

    Not only does the phone you gave your dad use your old Hotsync ID (which since it's your dad, probably isn't so bad), it has much more of your personal data on it than you might think...there's no way I want a stranger getting his hands on that. A hard reset won't clean that stuff up - that's why you want to perform the zero reset.

    Well, I'm the OP, and I'm not sure whether I'll keep the phone and use it or sell it. I've not decided. I have an SMT5600 that I'm currently using, and trying to decide if I want to go the Treo route or stick with what I have.

    I appreciate all the replies, it definitely gives me the information that I needed.

    Thanks!
