TX in a crash, reboot, crash cycle since I deleted contacts file
I tried to swap out my contacts file on my TX with the file from my T3.
Same name, must be same file, right? No. TX is now in a constant
reboot, crash, reboot mode. W/o breaking it apart and taking the
battery out of it, is there any way to replace the TX contacts file
(which I deleted) with a new one? I used FileX to do this big mistake.
I'm hoping someone can tell me how to reboot the TX and not have it
load the contacts module - is that possible? If Palm can fix it, should
I send it to them?

If you're able to hotsync, then yes. In the desktop, delete notes or other items (Does the TX have voice memos? Those would be a quick way to free up a lot of space!) Perform a hotsync, and your Palm should then have some free memory.
If you're not able to hotsync, then nothing you do in the Desktop will have any effect on the Palm.
But, I'm skeptical that this is the real problem. It sounds more like memory corruption, and a hard reset is going to be the real fix.
On your Palm Desktop, under username PalmUser40, select the category view of 'All'. Then press Control + A to select all contacts. Then press Control + C to copy them all.
Then change the username on the upper right to 'misty'. Then go to contacts, under category 'All', and then Control + P to paste all contacts.
This will most likely not keep all the category names, but all your contacts will be copied in.
Then hotsync to sync to your Palm TX.
You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.
Do you still have administrative access to your laptop? IIRC there are some problems with using PD with a non-admin account.
I would recommend that you back up the "good" backup data on the Laptop. In PD, Choose Tools/Options, the "Data Directory" entry shows where the data is stored (in a subdirectory that looks like the first six characters of the Palm's User ID)
I did search through the forums before posting and the only "solution" I found was to buy Chapura PocketMirror for $30 which I refuse to do. I should be able to sync this palm with Office without having to spend even more money.
