    Here's the deal. I installed Contacts5 on my phone and when I was given the option to map the phone button to Contacts5, I did. Well, I didn't like Contacts5 so I deleted it. Here is where the problem begins. My green phone button is now mapped to contacts instead of the default phone dialpad. How can I change this back? I've already went to preferences and the phone button isn't mapable (if thats a word). Is there a program that will let me map the phone button? Currently I have the dialpad(phone) mapped to my calendar button so I can atleast access the phone.

    One way might be to reinstall Contacts5 and remove the option to map it to the phone button then delete it again.

    Maybe someone will reply with a utility that will allow you to map the phone button like we used to be able to.

    I found the solution on another forum. There is a program called btnfix by shsh that resolves this issue!

    ----------------------------

    BtnFix quicky and easily resets the Treo's PHONE button function.

    There are several applications out there (e.g. TAKEphONE, Datebook5, Agendus...) that take over the PHONE button.

    If/when you remove any of those applications, you may encounter a situation where that button is left "hanging" - since the application assigned to it no longer exists, it behaves wrongly.

    Normally, you could get over it by going to your system "Prefs" application, to the "Buttons" tab, and re-assigning the built-in "phone" application to that button (or pressing the "Default" button). To make things simpler - just install and run BtnFix, and press the "Go" button - this will fix the situation if needed.

    Note: on the Treo 650 the "Prefs/Buttons" solution does not even work - it does not allow any change of that button assignment, so BtnFix is the only answer...

    TAKEphONE allows you to use the button for different things within itself. There are most likely other apps that will allow you to map it differently.
