    I just got my 700P today. I just upgraded from a Treo 600. Before I moved my data over from the Treo 600 I was playing around with the ringtones on the new 700P and found a couple I really liked. After I installed the 700P software on my PC and moved everything over from my 600 I went to change the ringtones but only the original Treo 600 ringtones are there. NONE of the 700P ringtones are available. How do I get the default 700P ringtones back? Please help. Thanks!

    I'd assume a hard reset would probably fix this.

    After I hard reset what do I do? Am I suppose to manually add all the data from the 600? That would take me about a year to do....seriously. How do I bring the 600 data over without losing the ringtones on the 700P?

    Trust me, you are far better off doing a manual data transfer no matter how long it takes. People that have attempted just restoring from backup or from sync all their data from previous phones have reported all kinds of stability problems.

    Is there any way to just bring over my calendar and my contacts list. That's all I'm really concerned about. I don't install any 3rd party apps.

    Rename your /Palm/<username>/Backup (it's probably not "Palm" on your desktop) directory (to, say, Backup.old), hard reset the 700p and then hotsync. That'll load just your PIM data.

    You can get your 700p default ring tones back by simply deleting the Midi_Ring_Tones file from RAM using FileZ, Zlauncher File Manager, or Resco Explorer. The master default "Midi Ring Tones" database in ROM will be automatically created in RAM when you do this.

    As far as keeping some / all of the new 700p ringtones while also adding your old (significanly larger quantity) ringtones from the 600, you have to do it manually in one direction or the other.

    As you said, you can tediously re-add all those ring tones you already had loaded on your 600 one by one into the 700p ringtones database. For me, I had many more ringtones on my 600 that I wanted to keep, so I reset teh 700p midi ring tones database (per above approach), then beamed the 10-12 tones I really wanted from the 700p onto my 600, then just beam the entire 600 Midi_Ring_Tones database (with the 700p ringtones already included) back from your 600 to your 700p. This will overwrite the default RAM version (but not the default ROM version) of Midi Ring Tones. The 700p tones you really wanted and all of your 600 ringtones will be available from Sounds manager.

    By the way, in my case, I actually beamed the 700p ringtones to my laptop so I would also have the midi files saved somewhere else before I hard reset my my 600 and gave it to my wise, but you could just as easily beam them to your 600 as I described above.

    Hope this works.

    Thanks for your help. I did a modified version of what you suggested. I went into the /handspring/<username>/backup folder and moved the midi_ring_tones.PDB file to a new folder I made. Then I just did a hotsync. Everything came over except the ringtones I didn't want. So thanks for the help!!
