    Doing this to my wifes phone this afternoon so I really don't want to screw this up. She wants an Evo 3D so I'm trying to avoid the whole, "I told you so" conversation. She has a Sprint Pre- and I purchased a Verizon Pre2. Which script would I run? There are a couple that look like they apply to me. What about contacts and calendar info (via palm profile, she doesn't use google)

    And yes, I've read through about 100 pages of forum searches. My head is spinning.

    I just did this last night... you will want to use the Sprint Franken Verizon Pre 2 script (./scripts/meta-sprint-franken-verizon-pre2-2.1.0). Mine failed the first time thru, but I reran the jar file and it worked fine on the 2nd try.

    I started with a new profile on my pre2, so I can't say for sure, but I think the palm profile stuff will be there once you sign in after the doctor.

    When I did it, I was able to use the same profile that I'd had on my Pre-. It worked just fine.

    so you guys really see a difference between the pre- and the 2?

    Umm...yeah.

    First things that come to mind:
    1. It's much faster
    2. Battery life is better - due to more efficient processor
    3. Build quality is better

    Did it! It was simple. The hardest part was getting my wifes iTunes music back on the device. Ugh. I received a few errors in downloading some of the scripts but just re-ran them and all went fine. Now if I can only figure out why none of the system sounds are working. I get ringtones but no notification sounds or the swooshing when a card is tossed.

    Go to the Sounds & Ringtones app and check to see if "System Sounds" are enabled.
    I am, therefore I think

    Is a token transfer still required then if you ARE moving a Sprint Comm Board to a Pre Plus? If so, what makes a conversion to Pre2 different such that it is not required?

    When you make a frankenpre+, it can be restored with the stock sprint webos doctor. the frankenpre2 can not. So you don't really need to worry that much about the tokens.
