    so i have palm pre. have learned to sync with google and not the unreliable palm profile. and do all sorts of tweaks and such. and saved my PalmDatabase.db3 to my desktop. however...

    my roomie's little sister who has a pixi doesnt know any of this. she dropped her pixi cracked the screen and got a new one thru insurance. activated her new phone and got no contacts. id rather not call palm for support cause they wasted my time and never got my contacts back. so...

    what are her options of getting contacts out of her old cracked phone? the touchscreen is completely out.

    Update to the same version of WebOS as her last backup was performed using.
    Do a partial erase
    Sign back into her Palm profile.
    All her contacts will be back
    Pilot 1000 -> Pilot 5000 ->Palm Pilot Professional -> HP 620LX -> TRG Pro -> Palm V -> Palm Vx -> Palm M505 -> Palm i705 -> Palm Tungsten|T -> Samsung i500 -> Treo 600->Treo 650 -> Treo 600-> Treo 700p ->Centro ->Treo 800w + Redfly C8n -> Palm Pre -> HP Touchpad

    your contacts are on whatever profile they came from (palm, google, etc)

    That's where you need to get them from. Where are you syncing contacts? And are you getting another Pre? If you do, it will automatically download them to your phone when you log in to your Palm Profile...
