    Sounds like you basically want to remotely interact with your phone from your PC. I'm actually not sure that webSO supports this. You should be able to get access to the files on the phone via the USB port though.

    Exactly. Okay... well is there any way to access other data like text messages, ect.? Also, is there a keyboard shortcut that I could use to reset/wipe the phone?

    Cheers.

    AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK $you$ $can$ $only$ $access$ $to$ $the$ $part$ $of$ $the$ $memory$ $that$ $corresponds$ $to$ $the$ $USB$ $drive$.
    If you had Save/Restore installed and configured to perform a daily backup, then you will be able to recover plenty of you data and settings. But not your messaging history.

    To "wipe" all the conent on your phone, the best way is to:
    1 save the content of your USB drive on your computer
    2 delete the entire content of the USB drive of your device
    3 use WebOSDoctor

    Okay. That helps. BUT... I feel like there HAS to be a way to look at my text massages some way (without another device) after downloading the "PalmDatabase.db3" file. The issue is I have a device with a fried screen... can I plug the "PalmDatabase.db3" file into an emulator?

    Here we go, I knew that I saw something about this once before:

    This article on webOS Internals also talks about getting access to carrier db3 files. The process should be same for getting to the messages db3 files:
