Hard reset
A hard reset erases all data and third-party software on your Treo. Never
perform a hard reset without first trying a soft and system reset. You can
restore previously synchronized data with the next
HotSync<http://mytreo.net/treofaq/HotSync>operation. A hard reset can
tell you whether a problem stems from your
Treo or an application installed on it. If you do not experience the problem
after you perform a hard reset, the problem may be related to software you

1. Unscrew the stylus tip to access the reset tool.
2. While holding the Wireless Mode button, use the reset tool to gently
press the reset button on the back of your Treo.
3. When the Palm Powered logo appears, release the Wireless Mode button.
4. When the warning appears, press Up to confirm the hard reset.
5. If a language selection screen appears, select the same language you
selected for your desktop software.

Battery Disconnect Reset
Since you can't actually remove the battery (without disassembly of the
case), Handspring/Palm has included a way to emulate battery disconnection.
This reset will erase all of your stored data. Unless you really want to
lose all of your data, you must make a proper backup before doing this. It
is recommended that you don't just rely on Hotsync, try out other backup
applications to see which you like.

This will disconnect the battery, erase all of your data, and reset the
radio. After you do this, you will not be able to turn on the Treo until you
have plugged it into a power source, such as a cradle, car charger, or
travel charger. If you don't have access to a power source, you shouldn't do
this. Get a power source first.

1. Unscrew the stylus tip to access the reset tool.
2. While holding K and BACKSPACE use the reset tool to gently press the
reset button on the back of your Treo.
3. The screen should quickly flash white and the Treo should turn off. The
network status light near the antenna should be completely off. If so,
4. Plug the Treo into the power source. Leave it there for a minute or so.
When the Treo is ready, it will turn on. The screen should briefly show a
Palm or Handspring logo screen and then show the calibration screen.

Have to swap out my Treo 600, again.  They have a habit of losing pixels
on the screen.  And, the phone, in combination with Sprint's lousy
service, doesn't work as a phone.  (Second swap out.)
How does one clear off all data on the existing phone?
