Exclamation Help! My Treo700wx doesnít turn on!

Hey everyone, hereís the story: Iím studying for finals when I pick up my phone to check the time. I press the End key, screen doesnít light up. I press the Windows key, nothing. I press any key, no life.

So I take out the battery and pop it back in. TREO screen comes on, but the bar on the bottom doesnít load. I left it alone for 10 minutes, itís still on the TREO screen. I tried everything but a hard reset, because I donít know what does.

Is the phone officially dead?
What does a hard reset do? Erase everything? (Calendar events, contacts, pics/files on phone?)

a hard reset takes phone back to stock. all info., apps ect. gone unless you have an sd card. that info. is safe.

Are my contacts, calendar events, etc stored on my SD card automatically (by default)? Aren't they stored in the main memory?

This is exactly why a good b/u app is a must have for any WM device....even if it means forking out a few bucks for a quality app like SPB Backup
