I love love love the phone, and I was a die hard Blackberry boy for four years! But, there is a few things I don't like about the Pre and need help correcting it. One thing is the contacts options. I linked my facebook contacts and it puts all 297 friends in my contact list. I only want SOME of them to show up because I don't call but about 60 of them, but it won't let you delete them one at a time, it's either all or nothing. Same with my email. I have about 97 email addresses in my gmail and it pulls all of them into my contact list as well. Like I said, I ONLY want the contacts that I call in my contact list. Is there anyway to fix this?

I will be getting my Palm Pre in about a week and these are good questions. I would love to have the answers to this also.

in regards to the facebook - no way to pick contacts to import. as for gmail - try putting the contacts you want imported to your phone under the "my contacts" group in the gmail contacts tab. some people have said this works. if you want to make your own ringtones, try http://ringtonemaker.com. love the phone!
Universal search is the best way to access contacts. Scrolling through the list is a waste of time, they're only there so all your information is in one place. Any time you want to text, call, message, or view a contact- just start typing their name. I found this makes much more sense, and saves loads of time.
