    In my contacts -> preferences -> Palm Profile, it says I only have 2 contacts.

    Why? Does this mean that restoring my palm profile will only bring back 2 contacts? How do I get my hundred + other contacts to be backed up with the palm profile?

    Hopefully it means the rest of your contacts are in one of your other accounts, like Google, Exchange, or Yahoo. Any of those will automatically re-sync when you get a new device. That is much better than the crap-shoot called Palm Profile backup.

    To check, just pull up one of your contacts and see what Icon is next to it. Also check your default contacts account from the contacts app to see what it is. It sounds like it is not your Palm Profile (a good thing) or you have not added any contacts since setting it up.

    If you do not have your contacts in another service then right away you need to update to the newest version of WebOS. Then perform a partial erase reset. Then you log into your profile and all your contacts will come back.

    If you wait to long you will loose your contacts the next time your Pre does an automatic backup.

    Provided your existing contacts were synced from Google, yes.

    That would only affect new contacts. Your existing contacts will continue to sync with wherever they came from. Don't do it.
