    Is it possible to reinstall the O/s on a Palm 700P?

    Please this is very important, I am loosing documents , I need to know how . I don't want to have to pay palm for support ($14.95) I don't think it's right that they charge and besides we have so many people in these forums that have the knowledge necessary, and I would much rather say "Than You" to them for helping then paying a big corporation.

    Put your docs on a card or email them; then do a hard reset.

    Will a hard reset fix the O/S as well as phone functions?

    Performing a hard reset on your Palm will erase all of "your" documents, preferences and apps that you installed. It will effectively return the phone back to a factory fresh state. If you can get the phone on, copy your documents to an sd card and then perform the reset. You should really look into using some sort of sd backup like NVBackup to avoid potential issues like this.

    NVBackup is an excellent tool, but if you backup becaues of the problem, Hard reset, then backup with NVBackup, you are back where you started.
    I keep my phone apps to a minimum, most everything is stored on my 8 GB micro SD card.
    And a copy of that card on my PC or elsewhere.
    I use NVBackup and Hotsync regularly.

    NVBackup has a handy option of selective restore. You can just restore certain files or programs you know not to be the problem or to help determine which program is causing the problem. I had to do this with my Treo 650 while on vacation one time. No pc around, just had to selectively restore a few programs at a time until I determined which one was causing the problem. In combination with the phones crash log, it can be done without a pc all together.
