    I was told that pre owners could update there phones through iTunes. Is this true? They can easily sync all there music from iTunes to there pre vice versa?
    This might be old news to you guys but I don't pay attention to anything pre what soever but this just caught my attention.

    Long, long, LONG story short:

    Pre syncs with iTunes in an unauthorized way. New iTunes breaks link. Palm re-creates it. Repeat forever.

    In other words, any user who actually depends on this method is setting themsevelves up to be frustrated.

    No one knows.

    Blackberries use an Apple-authorized method to access iTunes songs that continues to work. It gives their users a good experience, which you'd think a phone maker would care about.

    Of course, that means RIM has to do some programing work to write software that does that. All Palm does is trick iTunes into thinking the Pre is an iPod. So I guess that's easier? Who knows.
