Determining what Palm OS version is on a device

You can find out what version number of the Palm OS is installed on your device (as well as the version numbers of any other applications installed on your handheld) from the Info screen.

For most Palm OS devices:

  1. Access the Applications launcher.
  2. Access the Menu launcher.
  3. A menu will appear. From the App pulldown menu, choose Info.
  4. Tap on the Version box at the bottom of the screen.

Note: If you have Palm OS version 3.5.2H1.2 or Palm OS version 3.5.2H1.4, you'll notice that the full version number is cut off (you'll see only "Palm OS ® software v. 3.5.2H1..").

For older Palm OS devices running Palm OS 2.x (such as the original Palm Pilot or anything before the Palm III):

  1. Access the Applications launcher.
  2. Launch the Memory application.
  3. Your current Palm OS version appears in the top left section of the screen.
