Is there a way to erase multiple contacts? The Palm Data Transfer app moved my desktop contacts/calendar to the Palm Profile but after syncing with Google then most of that info is redundant and I have a mashup of several hundred unnecessary duplicates. I want to start from scratch but even after a Full/Partial erase the Palm Profile restores all my unwanted contacts.
BTW, I'm really questioning the concept of the Palm Profile. Syncing with google offers a web interface for managing data, provides backup and offers conduits for syncing to other PIM's. But the Palm Profile has no interface other than your phone so you're essentially syncing to a hidden cloud file that doesn't do much of anything.
Palm Profile Sync
Pre ---> Palm Profile Backup File (hidden in cloud)
Pre <---> Google Contacts/Calendar
Google Sync with conduit that also syncs to multiple sources
Pre <-> Google Contacts/Cal <-> Desktop <-> Yahoo <-> Plaxo <-> Wife's Desktop
Okay, I figured it out.
HOW TO CLEAR PALM PROFILE
-Open Backup app on Pre and flip switch to "Off"
-Click "Turn Off and Erase Backup"
This will erase the backup on your online profile, but it still doesn't erase the Palm Profile info you have on the phone (Contacts/Calendar). So you need to do an Palm Pre Erase.
-Open Device Info
- Click "Reset Options" on bottom
- Click "Partial Erase"
Phone will reboot (takes several minutes). This will erase your contact/calendar info on the Pre, but all apps and app settings remained for me.
Now your Palm Profile is clear and you can click to Google or whatever else you are using to sync up.
