I know that with 2.x comes a different Palm Profile that saves more things and saves old things differently. When you upgrade from a 1.4.5 device to a 2.x device, how much of your own information is lost and how much can be restored with a backup?

I have done a manual backup and restore when I replaced a broken Pre-, so I have had to do SQL database editing to restore text messages along with contact list consolidations. I read that 2.x texts are stored with a newer database structure that is incompatible with the old structure.

The root question is this: when I get my Pre 3, should I have any hope of my texts and contact list customizations somehow being transferred from my Pre-? When the Pre 2 came out, was it just like starting with a fresh phone?
