    I'm switching from one Pre to another, but there will be about a 1 month overlap with both phones active. Can they share the same Palm profile, so my contacts will be on both?

    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    "To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    Nope. I had a new Pre and it said it would disable the old Pre when I login to the Palm profile on the new one.

    So that being said... it will not load on 2 different Pre's apparently.

    Sync your contacts to a Google / Gmail account. You can add this account to as many phones as you would like.

    DUH! Why didn't I think of that? Seriously, thank you! Problem solved.

    Yup sharing the same google account works for sharing contacts and calendar. You can't share the same palm profile becuase that would mean you could share/resotre the same purchased apps from the catalog even though only one license was purchased...

    ^^^Makes perfect sense

    It worked beautifully. I love you guys! Makes putting up with the trolls worth while.

    This actually works? I thought every Pre has a unique serial id

    Google doesn't care about the Pre's ID. Yes every pre has a unique serial number and if you login to your Palm Profile you will see all the serial numbers that have been active on your Palm Profile.

    I think some applications might tie their license codes to the serial ID though. I think this is how Classic works...

    It does indeed work. Took about 4 minutes to update all my contact info after I loaded in my Gmail info.
    It's simply brilliant.
