    If you're so interested. Try Pre backup Utility.

    Save all the Phone Data or just save the text messages. Its better you restart after you restore your text messages. Try restarting before you reply to anything or even click the text messages.
    If you want to buy a Palm Pre is great condition. Here's your chance.

    Recently, some ppl have suggested that PreBackup Utility caused some major issues with their phone (including damaging the Palm Profile). I'm not here to disparage the app, it's just that DrewPre took on a challenge that is very difficult.... See the last page or two of the PreBackup Utility thread for at least one guy who really messed up his phone.

    Personally, I have used the following approach to recover call log and SMS history... to the same phone as well as to a replacement. This is done by pulling the palmdatabase.db3 file from the old phone to the new one (with a few edits if changing phones). Again full disclaimers that there are no guarantees with this one either, but I've personally used it a few times...

    See post 201 in the following thread... (might be worth reading the last several pages and deciding of each thread and deciding which is for you.) The guy who posted instructions in #201 addresses some of the differences in the database file when swapping phones...

    Yeah. It also messed up my profile too. I think it made my Palm Profile continuously keep logging me out and my sms was trashed. Hence i said "if you're so interested". Im not actually recommending Pre backup utility. I didnt know there was another way to do it. Now i know
