Dana, this is a setting that is "over the air" programmed, and should
The fact it does is a major bug and flaw.
There's a thread on treocentral.com...seems this is a widespread problem
that needs correction.

Hi. Same here. My 700W will switch back to 'Home' when powered on.
I never heard of this setting until recently when I was traveling out
of the country.
By accident, I switched it to automatic A, and was able to use the
Pretty poor Documentation.

It seems there is a bug in the phone setting of the 700w.
When setting the "phone network setting" to "automatic b" where it
should be for a Verizon phone, the setting reverts back to "Home"
every time the phone is switched off, then on again. I've seen this
in about 6 different 700 phones already, and have read reference to
it on various Treo sites.
Anyone else having this problem with a treo 700w?
Thank you for contacting our Verizon Wireless website. We are happy
to assist you with your question regarding setting your phone System
Select option from Home to Automatic B.
We apologize, as we have been unable to duplicate your issue with our
demo Palm Treo 700w. The System Select setting should stay at the
setting specified when device is powered off, then on, as it should
not revert to the Home option. Also, we are not finding any
information on the issue at the Palm website; thus, this does not
appear to be a known issue for other Treo 700 users. We need to
advise, at this time, that you consider resetting your device to see
if that resolves the issue. If the reset does not resolve the issue,
then we need for you to replace your device at your place of purchase
because if the device is stuck on Home, then the cellular portion
will not function once you leave your local area.
