    Hi, everyone. I appreciate the posts from all of you.

    I have had my Treo 600/T-Mobile since early March 2004. Overall, I am happy with the device, T-Mobile, etc.

    Every once in a while I have an issue and a soft reset fixes the problem. For example, my device quit ringing and would take voice messages as if I was not answering calls. Another time, trying to pull up web pages would give me a Try Again Later message or some such. I figured I was out of memory or something. In both cases a soft reset fixed the problem.

    The problem is when the device needs a soft reset I do not necessarily know that.

    Any reason why soft resetting daily is bad idea?

    Also, any guesses as to who the responders here will be? I have at least one and I thank him in advance.

    Robert in Austin, Texas Summer is finally getting hot here.

    I've never heard that soft resetting daily causes problems; its just like rebooting a computer ~ consider it refreshing.

    There is no definitive way to know that a soft reset is called for. If your Treo is acting the way that it should, resetting wont be necessary; but if you do it, it wont hurt.

    No message will appear that says, "reset me now." That would be left to users intervention of their device. Again, if its not performing properly....reset.

    SprintPCS has told me on several occasions that a daily reset is an excellent idea - not just with the Treo but with all cell phones on their network.

    I had a StarTac TDMA on Cingular and never had any problems where a daily reset helped anything. I guess that just goes to show what works and what doesn't!

    I've been using a T600 on T-Mobile since last Nov. Sometimes I notice that button events get slow or repeated (hit a button and get a bunch of events in a row). This seems to be fixed with a soft reset. I have BackupBuddy do a
    full backup to an SD card nightly at 3am. It would be great to do a soft reset after I do my backup or maybe every night at 4am. Anybody know a way to do this?
