    Hardly HTC Challenged the Palm 650 was manufactured by HTC! Palm ditched HTC as manufacture and well take a look at the hardware issue with the Palm Pre to see the results!

    Thank you! Well, I figured out a couple of issues, but my biggest question is how to get all my Palm data to this OS. I haven't had time to search and read all the posts but I'm hoping it's possible???

    I'm glad I decided to keep the HTC. Now I just need time to figure out how to use it :)

    you have to be a little more specific. What data over to the hero, emails, texts, documents. Can't help without specifics.

    I have a Palm Desktop application on my computer and would sync my palm to desktop and visaversa. All my contact info.; phone #'s, addresses, birthday's, appointments, alarss, etc. I have over 600 phone #'s that I need to move to the HTC. Also, is there a desktop application that will do the same with the HTC??? So when the Sprint (helpless desk) attempts to help me and has me push buttons and erases all my data, I don't have to start ALL over again.

    Well, you bought a Google phone, and Google is how you do everything. Start by putting all of your phone numbers, addresses, and birthdays into your Google Contacts. Then, put all your appointments into Google Calenders.

    Once all that is there, your contacts and calenders will always be synced and up to date. If you change something on the phone, it nearly instantly changes on the web and vice versa.

    Google syncing works like a charm on this phone, and it's always backed up automatically to the web.

    To get your contacts into Google, export them into a CSV (comma separated) format from your treo. You can then import them into Gmail Contacts

    For the calendar, does the treo allow sync'ing via the iCalendar format? If so, you can sync your old calendar with your google Calendar. See the Calendar Sharing & Syncing Help sections in Google Help
    Share your calendar - Google Calendar Help
    Access options - Google Calendar Help

    Once you've got all your data into your Google account, it should then sync with the phone.

    Your Google account (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, Voice, etc) is the key to easy data management with Android devices. There is no need for a specialized app installed on a computer to sync data like Palm requires.

    I switched from centro to pre to hero and LOVE the hero. Try downloading companionlink trial....use it one time to transfer your palm data to google. Then you are all set. Works like a charm.
