    Here are the symptoms:

    [1] When entering text, my Treo randomly engages the caps-lock (I can actually watch the caps-lock symbol on the screen go on and off).

    [2] Eventually the caps lock will get stuck onand does not respond to pushing the shift button on the keyboard.

    [3] With increasing frequency (i.e. many times a day) all of the buttons above the keyboard (D-pas, menu, preferences, etc) will become unresponsive; multiple soft resets usually restores the functionality --- for a while.

    Thinking the above problems might be due to some third-party software I've installed (like Key Caps) I uninstalled any programs that take control of the keyboard -- problem still happens.

    I also did a hard reset. The same problems happened with just the native software installed.

    So, does my Treo need an exorcism or euthanasia? My phone is with Sprint (and I didn't buy the extended service plan). Assuming the condition is terminal, do I merely (!) buy a new phone with them, or do they have some sort of exchange (for a large fee) program?

    what about the one year warranty? Have you had it over a year?

    If it happened even after a hard reset, sounds like a hardware issue...

    I just realized that I got the phone last fall, so if the warranty is a year, I may be in luck. I know that Sprint handles warranty repairs. I feel like I lost my best friend (sad, isn't it?). Can't image being without it while repairs are made. I'm assuming Sprint has some sort of exchange program...

    I would assume not, because if he had his 650 over a year, that would mean he had it before Palm even announced it. In that case, why not just throw it away, and pull out your Treo 700, and use that?

    Oh, man. You've all discovered my secret plan!
    I hadn't realized that the warranty was a full year. I am used to most of my consumer electronics coming with a 90 minute warranty...

    Now hoping Sprint will hand me over a replacement...
