    If I have a Pixi and want to change it out to a Pre and then maybe go back to the Pixi, and maybe even back to the Pre again, can the same profile be used between the Pres and the Pixis or do I need a separate Palm Profile for each phone? Does it matter going Pre to Pixi or Pixi to Pre?

    You cannot have a profile active simultaneously on two different devices, but you should be able to use the same profile when you switch from one device to another...

    Thanks... I'll give it a shot. My wife, in a moment of wisdom, placed her Pixi on the kitchen counter while making dinner... the counter was wet. In a moment of true wisdom, she put the lid from a pan of sauce down on the counter, half on the Pixi. It is now siting in a bag with rice for a few days. I have a spare Pre that I picked up super cheap, so I may activate it for her.

    So, what have we learned here
    1. Don't put your phone down on a wet counter... the water can, and will "wick" into the phone
    2. Don't put a lid from a hot pan of liquid down on your phone... there's condensation inside the lid.

    I'm embarrassed about this.

    It could have been worse... there was a guy here while back who was drying his Pre in a pot of dry rice after getting it wet, and his wife came in started water boiling and dumped the rice into the boiling water thinking he was getting dinner ready! LOL

    HAAAAAAAA!! Its funny you mention this because I also had a fateful water encounter with my precious Pre while doing the dishes:

    The rice trick actually worked! Fortunately a few months later I was able to swap out my old Pre for a manufacture defect.

    No. No homebrew apps or patches are restored.

    I remember that! Hahahahaha! That was a great thread.
    I don't understand the purpose of the line, I don't need to drink to have fun. Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

    Let's all give thanks to the app that started it all.

    You can change your active device on-line. But you can't load that profile to that device until that particular phone is the active one (which is when you enter your Palm profile info on the phone).

    Do note that some apps will work on the Pre, but not on the Pixi so the only problem you may run into is if the app is not supported by the device you are moving to.
