Treo 650 Voicemail Update for Cingular/AT&T

palmOne support has posted a update for Treo 650 smartphone users experiencing problems with voice mail on Cingular and the former AT&T.

The software updater resolves a known compatibility issue with some 64K SIM cards that cause your Treo 650's pre-programmed voicemail number to become corrupted or erased. When you tap on the voicemail icon, respond to a voicemail notification, press and hold the "1" key or access Voicemail from the Favorites menu, you may experience one of these conditions:

  • You can't access voicemail
  • You're connected with an unrelated long distance operator instead of voicemail
  • You are prompted to enter your voicemail number after the Treo 650 resets itself
  • You may have requested Cingular Wireless to send an over-the-air (OTA) message to reset your voicemail number, and it may have worked for a short period but then become corrupted or erased again.

The Treo 650 Voicemail Updater 1.04 resolves this incompatibility and restores your voicemail settings to working order. After the update, you should not have problems accessing your carrier voicemail through the methods mentioned above.

Great but...

What we really need is something done about the volume at the earpiece. Fixing the resets wouldn't hurt either.
Otherwise, I'm very happy with my 650.

Gemstar SIM fix - Big Deal!?!

sfmanuel @ 3/23/2005 1:09:23 AM # Q
I had swapped out the Gemstar for Axalto SIM a week after I purchased my Treo (2/16). I have been faithfully reading TC and MTDN and now Palm Infocenter. This update from Cing did not address the handset low volume issue but did free up about 25% of NV memory. According to Cing the major update is due later this year...

Actually, the update recentlyp rovided by Cingular did nothing to help the NVFS file system. I applied it to my T650 and first thought that there was an improvement. What actually happened is a good many of my Preferences Entries had been deleted after the Hotsync and many of the associated database from appications stored on SD card were no longer in memory. This gave the "appearance" that you had more memory, not so.

After realizing this, I went back and used BackupBuddy to restore my orig. config (I backed up using BackupBuddy VFS prior to the upgrade). After the restore, I had essentially the same amount of NVFS RAM available before/after the upgrade.

So far, no real change. My T650 is pretty stable, I've learned what actions cause a reset and avoid them.
