Sprint Treo 755p ROM Update Available

Sprint Treo 755p UpdateFollowing recent Palm updates for the Treo 680, 750 and Centro, owners of the Sprint Treo 755p will be glad to hear that a software update v1.07 is now available for them as well.

Details are extremely slim as to what exactly this update improves on the Treo 755p with Palm’s support website simply stating that:

“This software update is a tune-up that improves audio stability, software quality and device usability.”

As is often the case we have had to wait for the first users to install this update to find out a bit more.  So far at least most people report a very smooth update process and a noticeably “snappier” overall response using their smartphone.

It appears that Palm has now incorporated many of the changes first made on Sprint’s Palm Centro (see Palm Centro software enhancements list) including below:

 Palm Centro SMS Palm Centro - SMS Short Code

[UPDATE: It appears that I was being a little bit too enthusiastic in my initial post for this update as neither the Power Saving Mode nor the Quick Launch Anywhere features are available in the Treo 755p after all…  These are still only available on the Palm Centro.  The most important improvement is nonetheless still a much speedier overall interface when using, launching and switching applications.]

Inbound/Outbound SMS Graphics (Image above left)
A minor enhancement here consists of the addition of small graphics indicating whether the last message in your SMS is Inbound (Green down arrow) or Outbound (Yellow up arrow) – it’s not much but it actually helps to better keep track of your messages thus making the Treo 755p SMS application even better (it’s arguably still very much the very best of any smartphone in the world today).

SMS Short Code Translation (Image above right)
Another new enhancement now allows you to simply enter the word ‘yahoo’ or any other 4, 5 or 6 digit alphanumeric into the SMS ‘To’ line (image above right) and your Treo 755p will automatically translate this to a 12-key numeric equivalent.

Please let me and your fellow Treonauts know how you get on with this update and if you find any new features not listed here via the comments below.

I installed 1.07 for Sprint and I've had nothing but problems since. The only apps I have installed are Butler, BlkCardApp, CityID and CallBlock. Whenever I go into Butler and try to change my "Alert", I get a full reset of the device. Other times, it slows down to the point I need to reset, or just locks up. I had none of these problems before the new firmware. If anyone has any advice, let me know. I will be looking around for tips online. I also had to get a replacement unit after one year because the buttons have stopped functioning. Sometimes they don't register a push and sometimes they double hit...

I've lost all my data twice on my 755p. The phone shuts down, I had to remove the battery to restart it. All of my contacts, calendar speed dial data is lost. Is there a fix? I have the 1.07 update. Please Help.
