i500 Password 

Somehow, my Samsung i500 lost all its data (possibly due to low batteries?). A bit annoying, but I sync the phone, so I figured I'd just restore it.

But Palm Desktop asked for a password. I won't go through all the steps I tried, but finally I realized that this was not a password on my user data, it was the phone's password, which had been reset to the default value when the data disappeared. Then it was a simple matter of looking up the default password in the manual.

BTW, the phone syncs fine to iCal and the Mac OS X Address Book, but only if you turn it off first. (iSync seems to crash Classic, but the synchronization works fine.)
