Well fuck.
My Treo has apparently kicked the bucket. No response when I remove the battery. Not charging. No buttons do anything. No soft reset.

Anyone know a good way to force a reset in case I've not thought of something? Can I borrow a battery from someone to see if maybe it's just that which died?

So.. email me if you need me....

Yeah... trying to avoid that solution. I'll still be unable to check my work email on it.
Too bad they don't have any 4gig versions available any more.

Maybe I'll call the two stores that are two blocks from to see if they have any.

you're not helping!

Ha. I bought one Friday. See, my other phone died and I couldn't talk to anyone.
So I went after work and before my 80s party.
I love it. It loves me.

*makes out with phone*

Hey! You're not helping either!!

4 gig or 8?

May I suggest a sweet ass iPhone tattoo? It's not as expensive as an iPhone, it won't solve your problems, but you can still make out with it.

Yeah? You'll be the coolest geek on the block.

Doooooo it.

"Hello! Hello! CAN YOU HEAR ME??"
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: October 1st, 2007 04:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
8 of course... you think I'd buy a discontinued product?

Err... they were out of the 4s.

Though it looks like checkout guy gave me a discount. I'll have to checky my bill for sure... but it didn't cost all that I thought it would.

Dude, you hate that phone anyway. And you can't hear/feel it ring. You should get the manufacturer to buy you an iphone.

I think I'm past the warranty.
How long have I had this phone? Huh. May not even be a year.

Oy. I just don't want to drop 400 on a new phone where I'll be losing functionality.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: October 1st, 2007 02:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Losing functionality... but gaining iPhone. Plus, does teh Treo have an automatic youtube button? I don't think so...
abmann From: abmann Date: October 1st, 2007 02:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
I dislike the YouTube button. It forces one orientation of landscape mode which is the wrong direction if you hold the phone in your right hand.
rianwyn From: rianwyn Date: October 1st, 2007 04:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, that's something that I would never consider that would be painfully obvious to you.
I use youtube to listen to songs that I can't (am unwilling) to actually pay for.
fiendishx From: fiendishx Date: October 1st, 2007 06:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Obviously the solution is to hold the phone in your other...oh right.
You bring up an interesting point.
phoenix_snake From: phoenix_snake Date: October 1st, 2007 02:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, i understand.
abmann From: abmann Date: October 1st, 2007 02:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
But the "hate" part is a good motivator. I hear the iPhone is pretty soft and the vibrate is a touch weak. So an iPhone may not solve my issues with the Treo.

But it would have far, far better calendar and internet support....

You just need to set the right ringtone.
fiendishx From: fiendishx Date: October 1st, 2007 11:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
You make me wish that my phone allowed for custom ringtones. :(
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: October 2nd, 2007 02:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Maybe you should get an iPhone?
phoenix_snake From: phoenix_snake Date: October 1st, 2007 11:11 pm (UTC) (Link)

You are such a dork

I like that about you.

Treo wipe:

When you get the battery in, hold the "end call" button. It will ask if you're sure you want to wipe it and to respond with certain direction pushes.

Also, it might be that the battery's completely toast; they're not so good. If you like, I think I've got a spare lying around here (we deal with a LOT of Treos and Blackberries here)

Still think the iPhone's overrated, but that's me.

Someone showed me at least that the photos you can take with it are pretty decent, at least.
