    Is there a way to change from Palm Profile to Google? I.E. "John's" info is currently saved in palm profile. Is it possible to switch it to google?

    Yes its possible.

    Free and non free way of doing it.

    There is a patch in preware called contacts to google or something like that. That will export your contacts from phone to csv file which you can then import into google. Once that's done you need to delete palm contacts from your phone.

    Paid version with detailed instructions
    Xybyresoft WebOS Utilities this will get you started.

    Try changing your default contacts profile to google (under preferences). Then press SYNC to sync with google. Give a day and they should transfer.

    I'm not sure that will work. Please post back if it does.

    This will not work ... contacts will not "move" from one account to another. The Default Account setting only controls where new contacts entered on your phone are stored.

    There's dozens of previous threads about this ... try a search for "palm profile" or "palm profile export". There's no Palm-supported way to do this, but there are several workarounds. You basically have to export the Palm Profile contacts and then import them to a Google account. I think this is the easiest way (but there's a also a patch to email all your contacts) ...

    Just an aside ... if you only have a few contacts, it may be just as easy to transfer them by hand. Typing them into Google on a computer is certainly a lot easier than typing them into a Pre, so it's not that bad.

    when you look at it on your phone, there will be an icon or pic in the upper right corner. Tap that to expand. There will be an icon next to the name indication what account it comes from. If synergy is combining multiple accounts, you will see each one listed.
