    Does anyone know of a way to set a hotsync ID WITHOUT a hotsync <g>?

    I'm out and about without a hotsync cable, and had to reset my Treo - it's been resetting itself multiple times a day, and I got sick of it. I tried just backing up/restoring, but it still resets, so I really need to just reinstall programs one by one (I keep most of them in a directory on my SD card for such purposes), but I don't have a hotsync ID right now, so some of them will not "register"

    Thanks.

    Search for an app called changename.

    Thanks to all. I couldn't find anything "unzipped" while I was out and about, but got changename.prc put on my SD card after returning to the office. It's a bit flaky - I had to put two spaces in front of the Hotsync ID, as it kept stripping the first two characters OUT of the ID each time I set it - once I figured that out, it was cool, and will be a nice tool to keep on the card for future needs!

    As for the "unsaved preferences" - that's a good tip too - however, since I was resetting because the Treo was behaving badly, I really didn't want to use any "settings" from the backup unless absolutely necessary to try to narrow down what my problem could be!

    Thanks.
