Emergency Question -- Palm Stolen

by jmk / October 12, 2004 9:07 PM PDT

I had a TG50 with a lot of apps, data, and apps containing data on it. I regularly synced/backed it up on my laptop. Last week the TG was stolen.

I am buying a Treo 600 (I suppose).

Can I sync/download the TG's apps and data and (most importantly) data in the apps, from my laptop, to my new Treo 600?

I am desperate to recover my apps, data, etc. on my laptop.

Please write to me at

Be sure to use the SAME username you did before on the first sync.

Best of luck in recovery.


PS. I've done this with my Palm IIIc. I'd done a hard reset and erased it and all my stuff came back, but that's my stuff...

Assuming that you have a cellular service on your new Treo 600, you should ask if there is an insurance plan. A good idea to get for the first year when you first bought it, since its worth alot for the first year. Insurance plan usually cost some percent of the value of that device. I have a $300 phone with Sprint and the insurance is about 5-6 dollars a month.
