    I'm about to make the leap from my launch day Pre- on Sprint to a Verizon Pre2. Going to order it online to save myself $50 from buying it in the store (if I have to wait for the store to order it in anyway why does it cost $50 more to buy it in the store anyway?) and switch my service to Verizon. Not happy about it but I don't want to pay full price for one off contract to FrankenPre it.

    To move from the Pre- to the Pre2 what steps do I need to take? I know all of my Synergy stuff should transfer over fine, as well as my apps since I'll be using the same Palm Profile. I've used Save/Restore before but was wondering if there was a step by step guide anywhere. Couldn't find one after a quick search so I thought I'd check here. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

    Copy the DCIM folder with all your pictures and music if you have any. Apps and contacts SHOULD be taken care of...

    ...and any other documents that might be stored on the USB. (I had several PDF files on my original Pre than I needed to transfer to the Pre 2.)

    if you have preware, you can use save/restore to back up your app data.

    The cheapest I've been able to find is $265 for a used Pre2. Most are going for 300 minimum.

    Still, I think it's worth not changing carriers.

    Me too. So I bought that used $265 one

    From what I've read, the first thing I want to do is try and backup as much of my Palm Profile as I can (if this is even possible). Sounds like it might be lost on the other side.

    You will need the Calendar hack if you use gCal
    HP200LX->Treo270->Treo600->Treo650->Treo680->Centro->iPhone3G->
    Treo680->TreoPro->iPhone3GS->PalmPre->HPPre2->HPVeer 2.2.3->HPPre3

    Is that in PreWare, or do I have to edit stuff by hand?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I think I'm going to order one this weekend. The switch to Verizon will be a minimal monthly increase for me and I'm out of contract. Thanks!

    Also refer to this:

    WebOS 2 Upgrade - WebOS Internals

    This is of course talking about more than just moving up to a Pre 2, but there is a ton of great information here.
