What an awesome write up. I wish I could get past step 1
After a short (two year) vacation from the Pre series, I'm back with the Pre 3 and as excited as ever to get it fired up. So far it's been four hours with no luck. Every problem everyone else seems to have had, I have it and more.
I can't even get WebOS Doctor to install on my Mac OS 10.6.8.
I've read work arounds where I can change the name of the "com.palm.novacomd" to "com.palm.novacomd.plist", but when I try, it says, "You do not have permission to rename..."
I've also tried the other option explained for Mac Lion, but it asks for a password. I have no idea what password it's asking for.
So here I sit grounded with tears in my eyes...with a beautiful phone just waiting to take flight. Verizon is no help AT ALL. They won't even attempt to manually program it. After four calls, each person says all I have to do is press *228... but I have no bars.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a PC at work, but it's a secure PC and we are not allowed to even use it to browse the internet.
You can email me at my user name and then add Yahoo (I hope that is allowed).
