My palm pixie won't let me save contacts. Every time I finishing filling out the name & phone number & press done it keeps saying an error has occurred saving this contact. How do I fix this??

According to this Palmcentral blog:
It could be because of a patch you have installed from Preware. If you have downloaded patches from preware, you'll need to run the emergency recovery program that came with it.
Also try
(1) Launched Contacts.(2) tapped the Contacts tab on top left corner.
(3) tapped "Preferences"
(4) noted my accounts - Palm Profile, Facebook and Google.
(5) looked at my "default account" and noticed that it was Google and not Palm Profile.
(6) Changed the default profile back to Palm Profile.
(7) back-swiped.

I own a palm pre and the keyboard stopped working, i cant not type and it doesnt light up. is there anyway to fix this?

This happened to my wifes keyboard. It ended up fixing itself after a week, but it was very annoying. If you have tried going to the carrier and they wont replace the phone for free, try rooting your phone for preware and download the touchpad keyboard patch.

How to install palm software

Before you start Please make a note of this page: How To Recover
If you are unfamiliar with basic Linux command usage, you should visit this page: Basic Linux Use
Disclaimer Enacting any set of instructions from this site has the (remote, but greater than zero) potential to void your warranty. Our intention and the specific design of all instructions is such that you should be able to recover using the webOS Doctor should anything go wrong, and put your Pre back to a state which is indistinguishable from a factory-new Pre, but we give no guarantee. Use any information from this site at your own risk. At the very least, you should be prepared to lose all data on your phone at any time. We cannot tell you what you should do - we provide the information, but it's up to your own sense of personal responsibility to determine what you do with that information. We require you to use the webOS Doctor to put your Pre back to factory condition before contacting Palm or your cellular carrier for service or support.
You might also want to consider backing up any files you have in the usb drive portion of the Pre.

In general, simply installing the Palm SDK gives you everything you need for full access to the Linux operating system on the Pre or Pixi. There is no special "rooting" or "jailbreaking" process. Simply installing the SDK provides you with unlimited access to the Linux operating system logged in as the root user. Palm does not see this as a bad thing. Palm provides all these tools for download by anyone, anytime, for free.
  1. Download the Palm SDK.
  2. Install it using the installation instructions for Mac, Linux, or Windows.
  3. Enable dev mode on your Pre:
    1. In Card view or in the Launcher application, type the following: webos20090606
    2. Tap the resulting Developer Mode Enabler icon.
    3. In the application, move the Developer Mode slider to the On position.
    4. Tap Reset the Device .
      • When reset is complete, Developer mode is enabled.
  4. Plug the device into the computer via the USB cable, and select "Charge only."
  5. The next step varies:
    • On Mac or Linux, type novaterm in a command (terminal) window to directly access the Linux command line.
    • On Windows you will need to download and install a novaterm program.
      • On 32 bit Windows download and unzip it into the \program files\palm\sdk\bin directory.
      • On 64 bit Windows download and unzip it into the \program files\palm\sdk\bin directory.
      • Then, just like the Mac and Linux users you can just type novaterm.
At this point you will have a window with a prompt that says root@webos-device: or something similar.
You are now logged in as root on your webOS device and can do anything you would normally do on a Linux device.
Please be careful, you can seriously bork your phone now.
IMPORTANT NOTE: With the addition of the ability to install Optware packages to Preware, unless you have a need or desire to type commands into the native Linux shell of your Palm device, there is no need to use the novaterm terminal to log into your devices. Webos Quick Install (a java program for your desktop) and Preware (an app to run on your device) are fully capable of installing any Optware IPK (including *.patch and *.diff) to Palm devices. Linux command line access is needed by very few people. If you came here from a web page that talked about "root access" or "rooting your Pre" be aware that most of the instructions which require root access have been

My Palm Pre is frozen with only the word palm on the screen. I've tried all the troubleshooting I could...

It is downloading an update. It may seem to take forever. It will eventually restart. Sometimes they have taken as long as 20 minutes on my phone. When the word "Palm" starts glowing and "un" glowing, then you know it's about to turn back on.

Palm Pre Screen

I've had this happen to 2 of my Pre's that were never exposed to water. I think it's a product defect. I took it in to a Sprint service center and they replaced it.

I love Web OS and the Palm Pre form factor but I would discourage anyone from buying one because of the glaring quality issues.
