Never turned on again

I was really happy when I bought my first Palm handheld on my birthday. I got just enough money for a Palm Z22. I enjoyed Palm OS Garnet and all the apps I had on the installation cd and those that I downloaded from the Internet. I bought it at Circuit City with 90 day warranty. And guess what? On 88 day of my warranty I downloaded an app from PalmSouce. Right after I HotSynced my Z22, I decided to open the app. All I could see is some wierd screens and suddenly my Palm turned off. I tried to turn it on, but no luck. I read everything I could find on the Internet about what just happened to my hanheld, but unfortunatlly, nothing solved my problem.

I tried everything. Reset, charging, waiting and periodacally checking if it works. On 89 day of my warranty I went to Circuit City trying to get my money back (I wanted to buy something else this time). They asked me some questions about what and how it happend, so I told them. After calling Palm and doing something, they gave me a brand new Z22. RIP my old Palm.

I didn't use the new Palm for a very long time, I traded it for a 5-year old Sony Clie PEG T-615C. I'm pretty happy with it, but I still miss Palm OS 5 and Graffiti 2 =).
