    Given that....the only way to clean out you Palm Profile contact data is going to be one at a time right now :-(

    Sigh, I was afarid of that. Oh well. I will do it over the next couple of days. As long as everything is in google Im happy

    Just make sure you have Google as your default profile so that any new contacts you add into your Pre will not create a Palm Profile.

    Here's a suggestion: (please note, you may lose HomeBrew apps, and/or any tweaks/mods you've done, don't know for sure...) Please read before doing this:

    • Back up your Google accounts to a CSV (just in case)
    • Backup everything on the USB drive (plug the Pre in as a drive, also just in case)
    • Run the Backup app, and turn it off
    • Select Turn off and Erase Backup (this will delete your backup off Palm's server)
    • Run the Device Info App.
    • Select Reset Options
    • Do a Partial Erase, or a Full Erase (I'd try Partial first)
    • Restart the Pre

    You will still need your profile ID and Password. When you reboot, your purchased applications will return. If ou did the Full Erase, you will need to plug back in as a USB and restore those files.
    You can then add the Google account, and it will pull down your information.

    Note I've not done this, but I think this will achieve what you want.

    Please let is know if you do (and it does), so it will move from "theory" to "works"

    You my friend, are a genious!!! If there was a big time thank you button, I would click it for ya! Worked like a charm. All my palm profile contacts are gone. No more dupliactes. My gmail contacts fell down from the sky into my pre. All is well! I just need to install again preware, some homebrew apps bookmarks. Also text messages have been delete, no biggie. These instructsions should be pinned somewhere. Thanx again

    use google/gmail from now on since you will loose everything if saved in the palm profile
    or if you have extra money for 3rd party softwares, use chapura or companionlink
    both softwares backup data in microsoft outlook or palm desktop 6.2

    data loss may happen especially for contacts after a partial erase, running webos doctor or a webos update

    palm server is not what they say it should as advertised... BEWARE!!!

    Someone made an app on here that will create a csv file for all of your palm pre contacts.
