1. Remove the battery cover.
2. Remove the battery and put it back in while holding the "Power" button. Keep the button depressed.
3. Release the button when you see the "Palm Powered" screen.
4. Press the "Up" button to confirm the "Erase all data" action.

Palm Pre Plus tips and tricks


1. Soft Reset Hold the power button and cycle the ringer button on/off three times.

"Orange button" "Sym" and letter "R". It's like a Ctrl Alt Del for the Pre.

Another way is go into "Device Info" --> "Reset Options" At this point you have three choices:

a. Soft Reset -restarts it

b. Partial Erases -erases all installed apps and their data but not personal files stored in Mass USB drive mode.

c. Full Erease -Everything Partial erase does and personal files stored on USB partition.

3. Save Battery Life

Pre_with_battery

- Log out of AIM (There is some problem with AIM draining battery power that Palm is currently fixing. And plus, who really uses AIM these days?)

- Change your email settings. Note: each email account can be set-up in a different way.

Top on the upper left corner of the screen in the email program.
Open the Preferences menu.
Set frequently used accounts to check every 15 minutes.
Set rarely used accounts to Push.

- Turn on WiFi. (It's weird, but the Palm Pre has better battery life with WiFi than with 3G.)

4. Gestures

Tap
Swipe A horizontal gesture on the touchscreen or the gesture area. The most common swipe is "back", which is a swipe from the center of the phone to the left in the gesture area.
Drag Drag upward from the gesture area onto the touch screen to bring up the Quick Launch menu when you are in an application.
Flick
Scroll Speed sensitive. Tap or drag the screen while scrolling to stop.
Zoom Double tap on an image or area, or use two fingers in a pinch-like fashion.

5. Turn On Advanced Gestures

Go to "Screen & Lock" app
Turn on "Advanced gestures" setting

The advanced gestures allow you to scroll in between apps while they are open in fullscreen mode. Simply swipe from the far right the far left, or from the far left to the far right, in the gesture area to move between apps without going to the Card View first. The back gesture still goes from right to left in the gesture area, but it takes a shorter swipe from right to left (halfway).

6. Tap the Battery

Pre_popup

Tap the battery icon to see an exact percentage of remaining battery life, the date, WiFi options, Bluetooth settings, and Airplane Mode settings.

7. Uncapitalize a Letter

When typing, the Pre autocapitalizes letters where appropriate (beginning of a sentence, "I", etc...). To undo this, simply press backspace once. Rather than deleting the letter, it will change it to lower case. Pressing backspace again, obviously, will delete the letter.

8. Pre Recovery Tool Leak

This Pre hack applies mainly to the super tech-savy guys out there, particularly the developers. The "WebOS Reset Doctor" has leaked out (including the 195 MB webOS root). This means that you can now view the Pre's "hidden" code, which means you (or some really skilled developers somewhere) can find and tweek some hidden Pre features.

9. Sync the Palm Pre with iTunes

Simply connect the Palm Pre to your Mac or PC, select "Media Sync", and iTunes will auto-launch. You can then choose which DRM-free media files to transfer.

10. Use your Pre as a Mass Storage Drive

Simply connect your Pre to your Mac or PC with a USB cable, and the Pre will appear as a drive on your computer desktop. Drag and drop files into the Pre, or drag files from your Pre to the computer.

11. Solve Post-Shut Freeze

Pre_battery

Numerous people have reported that when you close the screen too hard, the phone becomes black yet backlit, and the only way out is to reboot. Turns out there is a problem with battery, because it becomes loose when you slide the screen down hard. Simply put a piece of paper on the top part of the battery between the battery and the phone.

12. Konami Code

Konami

This one is funny. To access the "secret" Palm Pre dev mode, simply type the famous Konami cheat code right from the launcher screen of your Pre. The code is "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart". This opens something called "Developer Mode Enabler". This was discovered due to the leaked ROM (number 9 on this list). This allows you to connect the Pre to a computer running Palm's Mojo SDK for webOS, which allows you to do some dev stuff.

IPhone 3.0 vs. Palm: which one would you want to get?

iPhone 3.0 vs. Palm: which one would you want to get?

iPhone or Palm Pre?
Sprint, Palm Pre’s exclusive carrier announced that Palm Pre would be launched on June 6. Then this summer that’s the question many would-be-smart phone purchasers just might ask themselves. Both have their pros and cons. The iPhone has a huge profile and market presence, but the Pre has the old-school Palm faithful who have been waiting a long time for their Next Big Thing. The iPhone has massive channels and even Sprint admits they won’t be advertising the Palm Pre much due to low initial supply. But those most likely to want the Palm Pre already know it’s coming, where to get, and may well be reading this while already standing in line.
But what about the consumer on the edge? The consumer who has an older iPhone or Palm, or the one who’s about to move up from a feature phone for the first time. What about the dreaded “undecided”? This article is for them. Now let’s get it on.

Display
[img]http://nidesoft.com/forum/iphonevspalm/iphone-vs-palm.jpg[/img]
IPhone: beautiful, large (3.5 inch diagonal), high-resolution (480x320 screen) multi-touch display.
Palm Pre: Beautiful, large (3.1 inch diagonal), high-resolution (480x320 screen). The screen is not as large as the iPhone (0.4 inch smaller) but this is balanced against other hardware features such as the removable battery and sliding keyboard further below.
Advantage: Tie

Keyboard
Palm Pre has a physical, hardware-based QWERTY keyboard while the iPhone has a virtual, software-based keyboard that can be QWERTY (or anything else).
For those who need to feel those keys, the Palm Pre is the obvious choice. However, the Pre’s keyboard is reportedly somewhere between a Treo Pro and a Palm Centro: softer, more gummy keys with a narrow width overall. It might not be to everyone’s liking. That said, at least the Pre has one, and it’s a slider to boot, which means if you don’t need it, you can just tuck it away back under the screen where it came from.
The iPhone, can draw any kind of keyboard it wants. So if you need to type occasionally (or often) in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, or most any language, you can easily switch between those exact keyboards. You can also automatically be presented with web-optimized, or video, audio — any task at all — specific keyboards.
The iPhone is an excellent touch screen phone, no doubt. But for heavy texters and e-mail addicts, the lack of a physical keyboard can be annoying. Now Palm Pre combined a touch screen and keyboard, pleasing both touch screen and keyboard fans. So Palm Pre wins.
Advantage: Palm Pre

Network
In the US — which is the only country with initial availability — Sprint has exclusive rights to the Palm Pre, much as AT&T has a lock on the iPhone. When you choose mobile phone, also make a choice between the carriers. There are two factors to consider:
1. AT&T is a GSM network, which means you can theoretically pop out your SIM card and put it in another mobile phone. It is great in emergencies, and if you travel and don’t want to deal with roaming charges. Sprint is CDMA, so any phone switches involves a call to your carrier at the very least.
2. Sprint doesn’t currently allow simultaneous voice and data. This means if you’re talking on the Palm Pre, you can’t use the web or email, and vice versa. If you’re using an iPhone on AT&T’s EDGE service, you’ll have the same problem, but if you’re on 3G, there are no worries at all. For the Palm Pre, you’d have to switch to Wi-Fi to do that.
Again, for me, using voice and data at the same time has become a must. Looking up information while out and about on a call is a frequent occurrence. If you’re not accustomed to it, you may not miss it, but once you are, it’s hard to go back.
Advantage: iPhone

Applications
Installing new applications on the iPhone is a complete joy. It’s ultra simple and quick – an absolutely superb experience than virtually nobody has matched today. With 15,000+ apps now available there is something here for everybody and although there is a lot of rubbish there are also many superb applications.
Palm has already confirmed that it will create a full App Catalog – one that will presumably have the same functionality and ease-of-use as Apple’s App Store. Though maybe there will not (initially at least) be as many apps available for the iPhone as for the Palm Pre.
Advantage: Tie

Multimedia
For Palm Pre, it offers a 3-megapixel camera. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to snap any photos, but early reports say that the quality is pretty good. Disappointingly, the camera won't have video recording capabilities at this time, but those could be added in the future. In terms of music and movie, it is reported that the music sounds very beautiful, also the movie looks perfect with the 320*480 pixels screen. However Palm Pre can only play MPEG-4, H.263, H.264 videos and MP3, AAC, AAC+, AMR, QCELP, WAV audio files. What if you have large music or video collections you want to carry around with you on your mobile? I have got third part software to do this admire job: use [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/dvd-to-palm-converter.html]Nidesoft DVD to Palm Converter[/url] to convert DVD collections into Palm Pre and [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/video-converter.html]Nidesoft Video Converter[/url] to convert video or music collections into Palm Pre.
As far as iPhone, there’s no doubt that iPhone is wonderful music mobile phone. Listening to music, viewing photos and watching movies/videos is just “something else” on the iPhone. IPhone can play MPEG-4 videos with resolution of 640 *480, up to 160 Kbps. Also it supports audio formats including AAC (16 to 320 kbps), MP3 (16 to 320 kbps), and WAV. With its beautiful 3.5-inch wide screen display and Multi-Touch controls, iPhone is an amazing iPod. Watch movies and TV shows in wide screen, iPhone brings you a video experience unlike any other portable device.

Advantage: Tie

Conclusion
So there you have it. Two companies that both pride themselves on their high-skill products. One who’s Newton spawned an industry that the other is Pilot defined and dominated, went on to converge with the Treo only to fall behind and get eclipsed by the iPhone, and is now poised to come back with the Pre. Apple is going on to the third version of their smart phone line while Palm is introducing the first version of their third act.
If it seems like the only real deciding factors are where you live and work, what you want to do, and how you prefer to do it, well — yeah. That’s it.
Bottom line, the competition between iPhone and Pre is good for Apple and Palm — it keeps them on their toes and on top of their games — and it’s better for us. We’re lucky to live in a time and place where we have such increasingly awesome mobile options to choose between.
Come this summer, we’ll have a few more choices as well. Which one will be yours?

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.
