    Reached in a highly unscientific manner but applications that I shy away from are;
    Butler, Chatter Email, anything from Toysoft, Causerie, Zlauncher (but only because I love LauncherX) and the newest beta version of Verichat.

    And yes ink, Directory Assistant IS the best app ever!

    Mainly my resets are caused by Verichat. Once in awhile it says power run is causing. I'm thinking that verichat and power run don't go well together running at the same time.
    Palm III -> Sony Clie 73V + Sony Ericsson 610 -> Sony Ericcson P900 -> Nokia 6600 + IPAQ 4150 -> Treo 650 -> BenQ P50 -> Motorola Q -> Treo 755p -> HTC Titan (Sprint Mogul)

    I only had a number of resets after I initially synced my palm and forgot that I had all my old BT drivers from my m505 still backed up on the machine. It didn't like that.

    I don't have much installed though:
    Zlauncher
    IBM Java
    PalmVNC*
    pssh*
    FileZ*
    -Vindigo-
    Dir Assist*

    * = on SD card.

    I did a Hard Reset (#4), and installed only the following:

    - Voice Dial
    - Docs2Go
    - Chatter
    - Bluetooth Carkit Upgrade for GSM
    - eReader
    - Adobe Acrobat

    So far so good (about 16 hrs now - 0 resets)

    I'm planning to install these apps in the following order:

    Day 1: Dir Assist, pssh
    Day 2: zLauncher 5.11
    Day 3: Verichat
    Day 4: Butler

    What do you guys think? Am I crazy? I hear so many bad things about Butler, zLauncher, and Verichat that I am a little nervous installing them again.

    Side Note: I've been debating about getting Causerie instead since I've been loosing msgs in Verichat. Both seem kinda unstable so I don't know what to do. But I love IM'ing.

    Another Side Question:

    Do you guys really recommend using PowerRun to run apps from SD card? I've been dumping muchos dineros on so many apps already. I hate to shell out another $15 if I don't have to.

    Regarding shying away from Butler is that on a 650 or 600? I've had Butler on a 600 for well over a year now with no problems - or a few that could be rectified instantly.

    My first Treo would reset 5 or 6 times a day. Always after sitting for the evening, and another 5 or 6 times during the day. 99% of my resets were due to HALRadio or Phone. Cingular and PalmOne both said it was a defective phone. I returned it for a new one. In the two weeks I have owned the new one, I have had two unplanned resets (one for VersaMail and one for HotSync). VersaMail actually works well for me. The VersaMail reset was when it initially HotSync'd the setup from the PC. I am also running the same Gemplus SIM card that everyone else is having issues with. Every now and then my voicemail number gets screwed up, but no reset issues have resulted from the SIM card.

    Here is what I did differently with my newest Treo 650:

    1 - I ran it stock and unsynced for two days
    2 - After two days, I HotSynced with an empty Backup folder
    3 - I ran it this way for a full 24 hours
    4 - I installed Uninstall Manager and let it run for a day
    5 - Each morning, if no issues resulted from the previous 24 hours and sitting overnight, I would install another application.

    Here is what I have running right now (all from RAM for now):

    Cleanup
    DateBk5
    DopeWars
    Electronics
    eReader
    Filez
    HappyDays
    Invisible
    iSilo
    KB Lights
    List Pro
    RsrcEdit
    SplashID
    Strategic Commander
    Uninstall Manager


    I plan on installing the following:

    TealPhone or Contacts5
    zLauncher or LauncherX or MegaLauncher
    MMPlayer

The same was true with the 600, especially when it was brand new, and few software apps had been upgrade to support it.
    And it seems the T600 crowd still has their share of resets.

    I voted 1-5, though in reality it's less than 1 per day on average. And none are due to the Treo itself - they're always problems with a couple of less-than-stable apps which I am trialling.
    Palm Pilot Personal -> Palm III -> Palm IIIx -> Visor Prism -> Clie TJ37 -> Treo 650 -> GSM Centro

    I would say around once a week...
    The only time I ever made a mistake was when i thought I did and was mistaken.

    Once every few weeks, usually when I install/try new programs.

    Zero to one, main apps are Chattermail, the built-in apps, Fonts4OS5 and PocketTunes (a whole bunch of other apps get occasional use).

    less than once a week. Actually, I've had the pone since ealry December and it's only reset on it's own about 4 times. I've had to reset it due to lockups about another 4. And then I've had to reset it because of failure to authenticate the web access another few times.
