Palm and Sprint getting sued over data loss

I didn't think it would come to this but I did become victim of data loss after the last update 1.3.1. I soon after got rid of the phone due to this and other issues.

Re: Palm and Sprint getting sued over data loss

Bummer to hear about your data loss. Never trust just one source for backing up of important stuff. I don't care if you have to print out your contacts from Outlook and re-enter them by hand...do whatever it takes to back that stuff up.

And I don't know what the lawsuit hopes to resolve. I think the more we rely on cloud services and digital formats for everything...the more problems we're going to see.

late,
Coz

Re: Palm and Sprint getting sued over data loss

I have to agree. You always need a back-up, and even a back-up of a back-up is a good idea if it's really important. I have all my stuff backed up with Outlook, Google and Yahoo. So somehow it's getting back on my phone lol.

Cozarla!

Re: Palm and Sprint getting sued over data loss

In my case I did have my data backed up but this was by luck. I had my hero at the same time as the pre and when I was transitioning off the pre I for some odd reason synced my info to the pre through google. I was really lucky because soon after, I did web os doctor and all my data didn't come back. I would have been screwed if I didn't load google sync on my hero.

+1 I do agree that multiple backups should be kept with critical data.

It is pretty stupid to file a lawsuit especially since there are ways of backing up data on you device. Can you imaging how many lawsuits would be filed if everyone who lost data on any electronic device would go to court?
