    I just replaced my 700P with a 700WX (the jury is still out on if i made a wise decision, only time will tell, they are both great phones)

    Here is my problem, whenever i would replace my 700P (four times thanks to Sprint) i would be able to hot sync and get the phone back to original settings like it was on the old phone (ring tones, email setting, text messages, etc) from the last hot sync.

    I have done a hard reset on the 700WX (some messing around caused the phone not to work correctly) however when i hotsynced the phone it did not retain the old settings.

    I have searched for hours, but cannot find the forum on here or anywhere i searched, could someone tell me if this is possible, otherwise i might have to call sprint and get my trusty 700P back, even though we were having to replace it every three months or so.

    Thanks in advance

    You can install Sprite Backup and it will work for this. It's free.

    The only way to get old settings back on the Treo700wx is to get a backup program. It doesn't come with one out of the box.

    Where do you get it for free? I see it at their website for 29.99 am i looking in the wrong place?

    Thanks again, the more i mess around with this the better it gets.... i just wish they had the native threaded messaging, this would be the ultimate handheld.

    You just have to provide your serial number to your treo.

    Go to the first board in this area and get the Palm Threaded messaging. Follow instructions, it's free and works incredibly!

    yep the threaded SMS hack alone is worth the price of membership at Treocentral.
