    I need to retrieve photos and songs off of my broken pre I already deactivated it and put my profile on another pre. When I try the orange+sym+u key it wont go to usb mode when plugged into computer. I tried battery pulls and powering off the phone while plugged into computer then boot up and still nothing. Is there a way to get usb mode with a broken volume button and not having to sign on into a profile.

    I'm no expert it this but is there no way to push the volume up key? Maybe inserting something to shorten the contact?

    The problem seems to be going around the activation scene. So no email, no nothing,

    in that case, I agree with your previous suggestion of "tweaking" the volume button.

    Try booting into recovery mode as described here: Developing on an Unactivated Device - Palm Developer Center

    If you still can't access your USB drive, then try running the "Activation-Bypass" tool found on the same web page above. This should allow you to bypass the activation screen.

    EDIT: Sorry I just noticed you need the volume up key to enter recovery mode. I would try taking the case apart and seeing if there was some way to activate the volume up key.
