    I have been seeing inconsistent behavior for whether the phone comes on automatically after a soft reset. Sometimes it turns on by itself and other times the phone is off after a soft reset.

    I had a program called Radio Control for my 650 that always turned on the phone after a reset.

    What are others doing about this issue with their 680s?

    ...
    restart the GSM-Modul (Telefon) after a reset (with automatically PIN entering) **
    ...

    and don't believe the "** only with Palm Treo 650". I use it on the 680 and it works fine...

    Dirk -

    Thanks for the suggestion on 2playme. It seems to do a lot more than I need. If I cant find something simpler than I will try this out.

    My radio on after a soft reset is still unpredictable. Sometimes I get the Hello screen showing the cell phone radio is coming on automatically. Other times the Phone remains off.

    How is the 680 supposed to behave after a soft reset? Should the radio come on automatically (improvement) or does it stay off (like 650)?

    Anyone using Jeff Gibson's Powerup app on a 680? Seems to be just what I am looking for.

    I'm using PhoneTechnician to control my radio. I found TreoGuard gave me some instability issues.

    Is there any reason you can't use Radio Control on your 680, as you did on your 650? Here's a link to the free download if you don't have it anymore:

    Radio Control does not work on my 680. I used it with my 650.

    I have emailed the author, but it looks like he is no longer working on this program. The source file is available if anyone wants to give it a shot so that it works with the 680.

    I went with PowerUp and paid the $5 to have have my launcher come up after the restart.

    I never understood Palm's radio reset rules either, until I found this in their knowledge base a few years ago:

    Did your smartphone reset itself automatically?

    A seemingly spontaneous reset may occur due to a software conflict or due to a network event even when you are not using the smartphone. If an error occurs once, the radio will turn itself back on. It will only do this once; if the error occurs again in a short time, the radio will not be turned on when the unit resets for the second time. This mechanism protects battery life. To see what application caused the last reset:

    1. Go to the Phone application.
    2. Dial #*377.
    3. Press Phone/Send.
    4. An onscreen message will give you details about the most recent reset.
    5. The important question: did the radio turn off by itself without a reset? When you dial #*377, take a mental note of the time and date at which the last reset was recorded. If your Treo's radio turns off after that, and a more recent error was not recorded, you can be fairly sure the radio turned off by itself (without a reset).
    * If your radio turned off because of a reset: Follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software conflicts in Knowledge Library article 27908.
    * If your radio turned off by itself (without a reset): Proceed to the steps below.


    So basically: after the first reset, the radio will turn back on. If you reset again within an unspecified "short" period of time, it won't as a battery-saving measure, in case your Treo is unattended and gets stuck in a reset loop.
