    Hello all

    I have a treo 700p and since I use resco backup to the SD card and BackupBuddy.net for over the air backup, I do not hotsync at all. actually, I also run Suse Linux.

    So I did a hard reset on my phone and reloaded a few of my apps and one of them relies on the hotsync user ID for registration. Is there a way to set this ID manually without a hotsync?

    Thanks.
    Palms and more Palms till the 700p ruined it for me. Blackberry and now the Pre. Sprint customer since 1994! They had 1 tower in town.

    Ok, so I guess this can't be done?

    I really don't want to install a new operating system on my machine and set up hotsyncing just to change the ID.

    I started a chat with Palm. Here is the response:

    I would suggest you go ahead and perform a HotSync to create the id.

    You can not create with without performing a HotSync.

    hum, I will have to install windows and set up hotsyncing to do that

    there is no way to set the username on the device?


    Rob(Thu May 17 2007 15:51:48 GMT-0400 (EDT))>

    I don't have a windows computer

    Iam afraid that is not possible.

    Yes. Use ChangeName.

    I was excited but it resets my treo every time I try to run it. I never see a screen - just a very quick reset.

    There's a problem with either your device or with your download of the application. It runs just fine on my 680, and if you search the 700p forum, you'll see that it should run on your device as well.

    Hum,

    I redownloaded and reinstalled and it is still not working. I actually got to the main screen once but it quickly reset when I tried to push a key. Now it resets immediately when I try to load it again.

    I copied the program 'changename.prc' to my SD card and then moved it over to main memory with filez. I tried to do the same with the file 'change_hotsync_name.c' but filez returns an error when I try to copy it to memory.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again for all your help.

    You can use Resco to restore your "saved preferences" file

    That did not restore my hotsync and user ID.

    What are you trying to accomplish? Is there a reason you don't restore your device from the backup? You can do a restore and exclude specific apps and files if there is something you don't want back.

    The "Saved Preferences" won't restore your hot sync and user IDs. It restores the registration codes for your purchased apps.

    ...and actually, the Hotsync ID is kept in the Unsaved Preferences file.

    Restore that one then

    I don't want to restore my original backups because I was having resets and issues. I restored it 6 or 7 times and it just crashed again.

    So I did a hard reset and I am trying to run just the minimum files until the MR comes out. However, I am still getting some weird resets from programs like 'contacts.'

    Regardless, I am keeping dial by photo, phone technician, treo launcher, etc.. off the device and just trying to see how it runs. No Versamail either.

    BTW, it is much faster - especially going to and from Blazer.
