    Has anyone heard of a cell phone virus that is affecting Treo 755p through text messages? My phone shuts down everytime I go to send or receive a text message. It also won't let me delete previous text messages....HELP!!

    Not a virus, a corrupted file. Take a try at DBFixit or if it is not important to you, just delete the file with a file management application.

    There are no virii for the Palm OS world. The file that needs medical assistance or death depends upon the application that is ill. You just gotta be a bit more specific before a diagnosis can be delivered (even free ones).

    On your error, is the radio turned on? that is the first in a short list of considerations.

    Have you tried deleting the messages db from apps (Press home button, hit menu, d, then scroll down to Messages Database and tap Delete)?

    755p restarts when opening a text chat

    My phone shuts down everytime I go to send or receive a text message. This happens in the chat section. It also won't let me delete the text messages.

    BINGO! That worked. I haven't tried to re-synch my phone yet. Do you know if I will bring the issue back? Thank you again.

    You just have to try it and see. The file could be bad on both devices or just your phone....
