Are PDB's (Palm data files, as opposed to programs) not going to be copies
from  the  Desktop PC to the new handheld if full data restoration is  as-
sumed? How about synchronising the T2 with the Desktop, then synchronising
it  with the Tungsten 3 right after a hard reset. Will the Desktop be able
to  tell that the Palm unit is different? Even though there is no  profile
(user)  associated  with it? I suspect the no PDB's are lost in case of  a
hard reset with complete data loss. Why not 'fool' the Desktop and have it
believe that a T3 unit was used all along?
