    Sigh...thought I'd be wiser now.. but not so....installed two more applications...TreoGuard and LightWav...back to resets....uninstalled them through uninstall manager but now LauncherX needs to be refreshed every time after a call has been received in order for the screen to show. G'ddamn...

    Also disappointed with Uninstall Manager. It wasnt automatically able to delete all files that came with LightWav.

    This weekend..back to...Hard reset..and reload my 15 applications that never resets my phone and I think I will leave it like that for some time.

    Sorry to hear that, Tiff. What version of LightWav did you install? If it's 5.0 or 5.1, then LightWav is most likely the culprit for your resets. There's a thread about it here. There's a new version that was recently released (5.1.1) which I heard should address the problem.

    BTW, I'd recommend using a backup app (like BackupMan or BackupBuddy) so you don't have to reinstall everything one by one.

    I installed 5.1 Downloaded it from their own site today. Sigh.
    Well that's one software I won't go near again...

    yeah I would use my backupbuddy...if i had been more cleaver and actually done a backup recently.....sigh again...

    In my opinion, stay away from Toysofts applications! They always seem to bring the perfect applications to market accept for one problem, they never work properly!

    Take it from a born and raised Bay Area boy who recently was transplanted to the midwest, I feel physical pain whenever anyone talks about a nice day in the Bay Area.

    Hey Tiff,
    What was UninstallManager unable to uninstall? I am curious, as it has not failed me yet when installing an application. Also, if it's true that you NEVER learn , you may want to look into BackUpMan, as it performs automagic backups on a schedule...

    Tiffany,

    I'm happy to try and help if you're having a problem with TreoGuard.

    Exactly. I have mine set to back up every morning at 0600. Make sure you turn off the "radio" (i.e. phone off) as I've read in various threads that you won't get good hotsyncs or backups with the phone on.

    I have restored using BackupBuddy VFS on several occasions. Takes less than a minute and you are right back where you want to be.

    Cheers,

    mine works fine with the radio on. with 1 exception. if a SMS comes in during the nite before the scheduled backup begins, it suspends the backup until i read the sms..in all not a huge issue

    The backup works fine. A restore may not. There are several threads about this problem in this forum.

    No kidding. There's still some snow left on the ground here in Boston, with more to come. God I hope I'll be able to move back to SF this summer.

    Might I ask what 15 applications those are? I'm putting my list together right now...my first Treo
    On a similiar note, which is better and why: BackupMan or Backup Buddy?

    Ditto for me. Fedex should be delivering my unlocked Treo tomorrow. I am all set to install some apps. I was actually ready to order lightwave, but your story scares me a little. What would you recommend to assign MP3 ringers and display photo caller ID which I know Lightwav does?

    MacUser,

    the 15 or so applications are now close to 30 as I slowly move more and more on...what I have installed now that seem to work REALLY well together and not giving me much trouble. With the exception of making the mistake of installing LightWav I have not had ONE reset in 7 days.

    LightWav also caused my phone to go into reset loops.
