    Palm Centro phone turning on and off, but not back on

    I got a used Palm Centro off ebay. I charged it and turned it on and it starts up the palm os and then to turn on the phone part you have to hold the end button down. Then if I do that again it turns off the phone. If I then try to turn the phone back on the same way it will hang on the "verizon" welcome screen a bit but not flash the red light and the phone will not turn back on.

    So now I have to pull the battery every time to reset the phone.

    Also the phone was activated on Page Plus which uses Verizon network.
    Verizon works pretty well here in this area, but the phone says roaming on the top of the screen (when it is on).

    I have it set to "home only" so not sure why it would say "roaming"

    update...

    Well I decided to do a factory reset on the phone to make sure I had no previous user data on the device and after restarting it now says "Verizon wireless" on the top of screen and no more "roaming".

    It still won't turn "phone" back on after turning it off, but I can live with that.
    I usually pull the battery overnight anyway to save on battery power and when I reinsert it in the morning, palm will start up and then the phone will start up and I just leave it on.

    If for some reason I would have to turn the phone off, I'll just pull the battery again. But that doesn't happen that often anyway.
