    Every time I try to run delete_contacts.sql I get many lines that end with "DELETE: not found". Any help would be appreciated

    Sounds like the app you are working on is still buggy, and the guy who developed the other backup is charging $5 for it, which I object to on principle.

    Thankfully, I was able to modify this script to just get my Facebook & local contacts exported to csv (and learned a bunch about shell scripts in the process). Just wanted to say thanks.

    Just out of curiosity why do you object to his $5 charge?

    Eh, his code went from bounty paid to a suggested donation to a required fee. He has the right to do whatever he wants with his code, his justification for it just seems sketchy to me.

    I'm not paying someone $5 who feels this way, especially when more altruistic individuals have provided free options that give me an opportunity to learn a little more about Linux and my Pre.

    Run the following from /var/luna/data/dbdata:
    sqlite3 PalmDatabase.db3 < workspace/delete_contacts.sql

    Hi all,

    Have been using Google to do all this for me since I lost the will to live when the Palm Profile (cloud) lost my information for a second time, having not a great deal of knowledge about the syncing of accounts etc, I just emailed all my contacts vcards to myself and imported them into Google with a "2" added to the name of every contact just so I could tell the difference when syncing and Google did the rest.

    Just having had to rely on Google for my changover to a Palm Pre Plus after my old Palm Pre went through a repair grinder...cant praise Google enough...took around two minutes to get all my contacts back after adding my gmail account on my new phone, and thats ALL the info including bdays/nicknames/email adresses/url's.

    Palm should feel ashamed there is no proper contacts management of our cloud right on the phone and the option to sync and check what we want.

    What I would also like to see is a little more on phone contacts management between SIM/Phone/Profiles ie.

    Delete all contacts
    Move all contacts

    yknow like Nokia was doing about 5 years ago...

    Wasn't impressed with Pre3 so I'm outie to Android ... this script worked great but I had to hassle with it: didn't have perl on device so just copied the database locally and ran a modified version of the scripts there.

    Linked contacts is web os's best feature - too bad it's best use for exporting them to your next platform.
