    I've been thinking about getting a 700w for a while now. The only reason I haven't bought it is that I have hundreds of dollars in palm os applications. I was wondering if theres any way that I could sell them or do something with them other than just letting them completely go to waste. If they just completely go to waste then not only would I be losing all that money I've spent but I would probably have to spend a decent amount on wm5 applications to get the same functionality I had on my treo 650. Is there anything I could do about this problem?

    Thanks
    several regular phones -> sidekick 2 -> treo 650 -> hopefully 700p

    I don't know the legalities, but I do know that a number of apps are tied to the ID, so it's not as simple as just syncing an app to another device.

    I feel your pain. This is one reason why a Windows Mobile phone would have to WOW me beyond belief to get me switch.

    In another thread -- someone mentioned a program that allows you to run Palm Apps on Windows Mobile but I can't remember the name of it. Of course, the next responder into that thread said that it didn't preform 100% of the time.

    Ah, found the link:

    Palm apps register themselves in on of three ways that I am aware of:

    1. No regsitration.....you can beam them to another user / phone and they will work fine, no strings attached.
    2. Limited regsitration.....you can beam them to another user / phone and they will work fine, for a trial period....same as downlaoding a trial or demo.
    3. HotSync Name Registration - the program will only work for the user whose HotSYnc name was specified. Usually can still beam demo to others as above.
    4. HotSync and Device Registration - Syncs to single device and hotsync name...will only work on spoecific Treo and with sepocific Hotsync name.

    That being said, some vendors specifically allow (regarding item 4) a move to another device. Whether the vendor allows you to sell your software to another means getting a new reg code and I would imagine you will have to address those on a case by case basis.
