I switched phones, from a Treo 750 to a Treo Centro, both obviously with Palm applications, the problem is that when I hot-synced the first time it automatically created a new user and now I have 2 users on my PC,…how can I combine both user’s info on to 1 so that I do not have two?

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.
IN PREFERENCES GO TO PERSONAL/BUTTONS THEN AT THE BUTTON LOOK FOR HOTSYNC PRESS IT THEN ON CABLE CHANGE IT TO PHONE; IT MIGHT BE THE PHONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE HOTSYNC CABLE CONNECTION. NOW IT DOES GO TO HOT SYNC INSTEAD IT GOES TO PHONE. NOW I'M TRYING TO FIX THE PROBLEM BUT MY PHONE STILL USEFUL. SORRY ABOUT MY ENGLISH
Hot sync the phone, clean the battery contacts (touch of alcohol on a q-tip), and try a soft restart...which is simply pulling and reinstalling the battery.
If it does it again, you may have a corrupt application. Hot sync the phone, do a hard restart (pull battery, reinstall battery, hold down power button until black bar crosses bottom of screen, select "yes" to reformat, and re-sync the phone to reinstall the software and data.
If it continues to be a problem, you can try replacing the battery or removing user-installed applications one-by-one to see if the problem clears...but the problem is most likely an unstable phone.
My phone did this today....i look up answers and saw yours..i later called my phone from my home phone and it seems to be working fine as of now, don't have that popping up every minute...once open you will be able to delete the hot sync application. I didn't delete mine yet, I was going to wait it out and see if it starts again. Hope I helped.
