    ugh. This is unbelievably annoying. I have the same problem.

    My phone did the exact same thing. All of a sudden it went to Hot Sync and wouldn't leave. It was just stuck there. I also took the battery in hopes to reset it, but to no avail. My phone even with the battery in, doesn't power up. Did anyone bring it to the store and where they able to fix it.

The last thing you need to do is doing a hardreset.
This will erase all the data in your phone but usually fix the problem.
If the problem persist, bring your phone to the nearest store to fix it.

Copy Contacts from Palm Centro to SIM Card

When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.
Google Sync details:
You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your new phone.

Centro handheld won't sync with Desktop Calendar

Reinstalling the software would probably be the best Idea. If you need the calendar bad enough you could always do a full backup with a third party program onto the SD card, then do a hard reset. Maybe it's a problem with the Centro.

Palm Centro - continous Syncing problem, now phone is dead

This happened to my palm centro and i fixed it myself. :) Maybe it will work for you. What i did was take out the battery and so the phone is completely off.. then take a tooth brush with rubbing alchohol on it and scrubbed the bottom part of it that the hotsync cord goes into.. I thought this may just mess up my phone more but i plugged it back into the power cord, turned it on and it worked just fine!! Seriously, try this out. It brought me so much relief!! And chances are you either got some **** stuck up inside there, or you got the botton part wet. Hope i helped!!
