Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

1 Answer

Lost Memory I recently bought a Garmin Nuvi 360 and paired it with my Motorola V635 phone. My phonebook was transported to the Nuvi & everything seemed to be okay. I was ecstatic! I also paired the Nuvi with my Tungsten T3 & transported some of my Contacts from the Tungsten to the Nuvi. I used the Tungsten later that day & everything seemed to be okay. The next day I tried to turn on my Tungsten & it won't come on! I charged it with my travel charger & it later came on. However, all the messages on the screen guided me through setup (like I was using it for the first time)! All my info I collected for the past 2 years seemed to have disappeared! I had sync'ed my Tungsten with my computer before pairing with the Nuvi, but when I accessed my files on the computer & made indepth checks I found that the majority of my applications weren't updated because my Palm Desktop was set up to "Do Nothing" for most of the applications when sync'ing (this action was selected after my very first sync! - and was set up for me by someone else since @ that time was wasn't familiar with most of the technical stuff). I remember when inputting some of my info I'm sometimes asked if I want it "archived". Is there any chance that my old info still exists in an archive somewhere? If so, how can I go about retrieving it. If there's anyone out there who really knows how I can solve this problem & retrieve my info PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'M DESPERATE

Re: Lost Memory

Curiously, my setup is also set to "do nothing" for some apps... but changes on the Palm for those apps are saved to the PC, as they show up in Palm Desktop.

First thing to do is BACK UP YOUR "GOOD" BACKUP DATA ON THE PC. It is easy to accidentally lose everything there, and they you're screwed. Default location is C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six letters of your Palm's User ID.

Next thing: Check in PD; are your contacts there? If so, they should reappear on your Palm after a hard reset.

If that does not work, set the conduits to "synchronize" and try again.

Sadly, too many people find out about backups the hard way.

How do i send my lg 990 phonebook to a parrot hands free kit

No one idea of the kit.

First, you will have to disconnect (and not delete) the pairing between the kit and the phone (on the kit settings -> paired device and then select and disconnect).

You go to the phone, you select the contact -> bluetooth option send via bluetooth. (if the phone can sending the whole phone book, you have mark or send whole phonebook).

You can send either one by one or the whole phone book. (I'am not sure if the whole phonebook are possible).

But i do not remember also if this phone has an auto synchro of the phone book, unfortunately with more than 1000 mobiles bluetooth difficult to remember.

Do you have any software can unlock code?

Uh Oh- The only way I know that you can unlock it without wiping it or deleting it clean which would result in losing your phone numbers is by using Motorola Phone Tools.

Following is a free link to download the Motorola Phone Tools and you will also need a data cable that attaches your cell phone to your computer:

The software will allow you to see the password.

Note: Don't try to keep guessing the password if you don't know it. Usually if you guess incorrectly 10 times it will delete your entire memory and phonebook.

Hope you get it figured out without too much problem.

Blackberry curve won't pair with my bluetooth headset


Try the following. Hope this helps.


1. Go into "Media" on your BlackBerry and enable incoming files (Menu-->Receive using bluetooth).
2. Find the file on your friend's device that you wish to send, and beam the said file accordingly.
2a. If you have not "paired" (created a friendship between) the two devices before, you will need to do this first...
2b. One of the devices will ask for a PIN code first and on this device you need to create a four-digit, numeric password that can be anything you like.
2c. On the second device, enter the four-digit, numeric password you created and follow the simple, on-screen prompts on both devices to complete the pairing (you can also pair the devices in advance by going into Menu-->Set Up Bluetooth).
2d. Depending on the devices being used and the time taken to complete the pairing, you may need to re-send the file (go back to step 1), otherwise, continue below...
3. When your friend's device tries to send you the file, your BlackBerry should ask you to name the file and where to save it; if you have not set the device as "trusted" in the bluetooth settings (Options-->Bluetooth-->your friend's device), you may need to approve the file transfer first though.
4. The file should now be on your device.

Note: by default, all
* Pictures are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/pictures or /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures if you have a memory card.

* Sounds (including songs) are saved into /Device Memory/home/user/ringtones/ or /Media Card/BlackBerry/ringtones/ if you have a memory card.

* Videos are saved /Device Memory/home/user/videos or /Media Card/BlackBerry/videos if you have a memory card.

In other words, unless you specify somewhere else in step 3, this is where you will find your file.

Motorola Phone Tools can not access to A1200 (System Memory is full)

It sounds like a bad flash or firmware to me. I would reflash to a different firmware. You can only flash to the same or a higher track with these phones, so be careful not to flash to a lower track. You could brick your phone.

You need to download the updated drivers & install them. You can find them on Google by doing a search for Motorola drivers.
