    Is anyone experiencing random intermittent freezes? It can happen when switching apps or even in the middle of typing a text or email or clicking a button. Whatever I'm doing stops cold for about 10-15+ seconds and then all goes back to normal functioning.

    If typing, there is usually text that hadn't made it to the page, and when the phone revives, the Treo types as if I was typing it then.

    Also interesting, if it freezes as I'm pushing a button, like an OK, nothing happens, I often click again before I realize I'm in a freeze. Even though stalled, the clicks register so when the phone revives, so do any multiple clicks so the phone jumps from screen to screens depending upon how many times I clicked before realizing the Treo was frozen.

    I had a 650 which worked perfectly, and then upgraded to a 700p when the freezing started. I had the same 3rd party apps as on the 650.

    I hard reset back to factory settings and reinstalled all software from scratch not from backup restore and made sure I had the latest versions. Same result. Verizon switched me to a 755p and it freezes too.

    A fellow worker has a 680 and notes freezes too, but I don't know if he has any 3rd part apps, but don't think so.

    Before I hard reset again and this time use the phone without any 3rd party apps, does anyone have these issues or know whether it's the Treo hardware, firmware, Palm OS or any of the following apps? Here's what I got:

    Palm OS: 1.08
    Bejeweled 2
    CorePlayer
    Documents To Go (this came factory, I upgraded to the commercial version)
    Google Maps (this may be factory? I don't think I installed it)
    Nexus (dictionary)
    SplashID
    SnapperMail
    SplashPhotoV-Hound (movie dictionary database)
    V-Hound (movie dictionary database)
    Yahtzee
    VoiceDial - it's installed, but I haven't activated it yet.

    No expansion card installed

    New to 750p (I didn't have on my 700 or 650)

    -SplashMoney
    -SplashShopper

    On my 650 which never froze. Had 2GB SD card:

    Bejeweled 2
    Backgammon
    CorePlayer
    Google Maps
    Nexus (dictionary)
    SplashID
    SnapperMail
    SplashPhoto
    V-Hound (movie dictionary database)
    Yahtzee
    VoiceDial

    Also I use Now Up To Date, but understand that their Desktop app interfaces with the Palm Contacts and Calendar so the PalmDesktop isn't ever sync'd, but Memos is. I have always had NUTD on all my Treos.

    Thanks,
