I had to swap out my Pre a couple of times (first one lasted me several months before the power button crapped out, then the first replacement they gave me had the ribbon cable put together wrong and the touch screen was unreliable). I activated my replacement phone today and restored from my Palm profile. Well, everything synced except for about 75% of my apps, all of which were from the App Catalog (with one from the beta catalog, the beta of Foursquare). The apps that are missing include:
Need For Speed Underground
DZ.Tanks (or something like that, the new Scorched Earth/Worms clone that costs like two bucks)
Here's the kicker. When I go to the App Catalog to try to redownload them, none of the missing apps will show up in the catalog. I search for them, browse to where they ought to be, etc. No dice. Palm's support was completely useless (telling me to "just search for them in the app catalog and redownload them" about a thousand times while I told them that that was exactly what I wasn't able to do, and eventually telling me they couldn't help me). Apparently something somewhere thinks those apps are installed, too, because I have the infamous "Application updates are available" with no updates available issue.
Has anyone else run into this issue? Any idea how the heck I can fix it?
Edit: I've done every combination of battery pulls, doctoring, and full and partial resetting imaginable as well.
