My Verizon Pre2 has just been delivered, and I'm looking for some guidance in making the move from my current, Verizon Pre+. For those of you that have moved between 2 webOS phones, I'd appreciate any advice/input. Here are some specific questions that I have:
1. What do I need to do with my current phone, before activating my new one? I have my contacts split b/n my Palm Profile and my Gmail. Do I need to do anything with this before moving over? What about my Palm calendar?
2. I'll make sure all of my pics/music are saved to my computer before the move. I have some apps, but not alot. Will all my current apps be downloaded w/my Palm Profile? What about certain apps that have their own data? Ringers?
3. I'm going to try to activate the phone myself. There was supposed to be a guide for this in the box, but it wasn't included. I'm sure I can find one online, but any tips for this?
A note about this: I purchased this phone from Verizon's website. My husband and I each have Pre Pluses and his line was eligible for the $4.99 upgrade. Mine was not. So, we ordered the phone with the intention of activating it on my line. I've asked about this on these forums previously, and people have said that I shouldn't have a problem, however, if this affects *how* we should go about activating the phone, please take this into consideration in your reply.
4. My Pre+ right now is very "vanilla". I have a few apps, and am running webOS 188.8.131.52, as that's the last release from Palm/ Verizon. I might want to start using some homebrew apps, maybe do some overclocking, etc. I've read a few things about "patches" not getting along with the version of webOS the Pre2 can use right now. What are some important things I should know before I think about modifying my Pre2 in any of these manners? Of course, keep in mind that I want this phone needs to last me until we start seeing webOS in smartphones again (assuming the Pre3 isn't released for Verizon...).
Big thanks to anyone that replies
