    Is this the right forum/website to talk about rooting my palm pre. Didn't want to type up a huge paragraph about my situation then not be the right forum. I don't know if rooting is illegal and I'm sure it voids my warranty. Any help would be much appreciated. If this is the wrong place can you please provide me with a link to get me started. Thanks Andrea

    Yes, this is the right forum.

    No, rooting your phone does NOT void your warranty. Only overclocking the cpu does.

    What did you need help with?

    If there was ever a problem with your phone I know first hand that many Sprint stores don't seem to care. Heck, they do it themselves. You can always "doctor" your phone later if you need to, which puts it back to factory settings.
    The overclocking is an issue though.
    Need any help, just ask us. And welcome to the family.

    Another question?....How can I download a song from a rext to set as a ringtone? Can I even set them as a ringtone if I move them from my pc to my phone? My usb broke so I wanna know if its even worth byuing a new one because thats really the only reason I would use the usb.

    WebOS can use any mp3 as a ringtone. You can always email it to yourself.

    All you do is go to Sounds & Ringtones, tap on ringtones and the OS will identify all of the available files you can use are ringtones that are on your phone. Just tap the one you want. Easy as pie.

    Actually it's worth getting another, if it's the cord you mean. You can transfer ringtones on to your phone using the usb. All you have to do is find the ringtone folder and transfer the files to it. I don't think you can save a ringtone from a text however.

    Possibly hold the orange/white button and tap the link. That may work.

    If you use an application called "Internalz" by Jason Robataille you can save a ringtone from a text.

    Just browse to /media/internal/ and look for the attachments folder, in it you will find the mms folder and then look in the other folders there to find your ringtone file. Copy or move them to the ringtone folder by tapping the file.

    I'd like to suggest that the OP would change the title to something about rooting and homebrew, so it is more useful when it turn up in search results..
