Years ago, if your Palm battery was allowed to completely die (discharge), you lost all of your data. You'd have to return to your PC, and restore your Palm's apps. and data.
In the last couple of years, the newer Palms use flash memory, so if you allowed the Palm's battery to run down completely, all you had to do was recharge it, and all of your programs and info was still on the device.
So.... what happens if I happen to let my Pearl run completely down? I used it quite a bit today, and it was at about 15%, which is what made me wonder what happens if I allow it to go to 0, or whatever the lowest battery level is before it won't turn on any longer.
Haven't seen this addressed anywhere...
I can resist anything but temptation.
Yeah.....so the only thing to do when your battery goes out is to recharge it. My wife has a sidekick 3 and every time her battery runs low, she scrambles to charge it up......I just chuckle on the inside.
That is true. If the option was there to enable/disable this feature where the phone turns the wireless radio off when the battery gets too low... the phone would simply die at that time instead of running it's last minutes on reserve power, so you can maybe use the calendar, get into the phonebook, etc.
