Determine your Palm Profile email address 7

by Adam Marks Tue, 24 Aug 2010 12:44 pm EDT

Your Palm Profile is an important piece of your webOS device, containing everything from your contacts and calendar, to your listing of App Catalog purchases, your web bookmarks and a lot more. Therefore, it is important to use the same Profile if you ever need to reset your phone or swap devices. But what happens if you forget what email address you used to create your profile?

In order to determine that email address, open up the Backup App ( Backup App ), swipe down from the top-left to bring the Backup Application drop-down menu, and choose "Palm Profile". Once you enter your password, you will be able to see (and edit) the name, email address, and security question on your account.

this is the first tip I actully found useful and even though I consider myself an avid webos user I didn't know this...
KUDOZ to whoever writes these up just have to say thanks


Thanks.. As eztech said, I didn't even know I could change it. My email addresss had changed and I didn't know I could change my profile.

I agree never knew this.

However, which are you more likely to forget: your email address used or your password? You need to know the password to get the email address.

That almost sounds like a Dilbert joke -- you lost your email password so the help desk will send it to you in an email.

One important note is to never change your palm profile email address to another existing palm profile email address.

Example being that you are signed into your profile and your significant other is signed into another. You decide that you want both devices to have the same palm profile email address. You go into your significant other's device and change their email address to yours. NO! Don't do that! It's very bad!

Question about Palm Profile - I know if I replace my Pre with another from the same carrier I use the same profile and everything comes to the new phone. If I were to change to another carrier would the same thing happen? What if, God forbid, I went from a CDMA carrier to a GSM carrier?

Thank you. I have sometimes forgotten which address I used.
