So, I'm new to Android. I currently have a Palm Pre and will be getting the 3D tomorrow. I've read on here that you literally need a Bachelors degree to get things set up. Lol, with the unfamiliarity I will have with Android, what should I realistically expect? Am I going to stare at this thing for hours not knowing what to do? I consider myself pretty technologically savvy but, how much work is it going to be to set it up the way I like it? And what exactly is there to set up that takes so much time? Thanks.

Create a folder on the SD card called Pictures(I created it on the root of the SD card). Then connect the Pre as a USB disk drive. Copy the pictures on the Pre usually located under DCIM to the pictures folder you created on the SD card.
If you do not have a way to connect the SD card directly then attach your shiny EVO 3D to the computer and choose disk drive. You should then be able navigate the SD card.
Is it difficult to take the mirco sd card in and out of the evo3d?

I could be wrong on this, but I don't recall a way to manually write to the internal phone memory. I think your only option is to save them to the SD card. I do know that once you associate a pic to a Google/Gmail contact, the photo does sync along with all the other contact info. When I load up new ROMs on the EVO 4G and sync my Google account, the contacts that had pics associated to them still have those pics in tact, even when the pic is no longer on the SD card.-Stay thirsty my friends.

Remember, there are some things pre-loaded on the 8 GB card and to copy those contents as well. LOL, I didn't do this and now can't load the free movie.

I'm probably misunderstanding your original question, but if you are looking to transfer the photos on your Pre to your 3D, virtually anywhere you go to buy a device can transfer these for you. I switched from a Pre to an EVO last June and ALL of my pictures were ported over along with my contacts, etc...you just need to ask them to do it. Didn't have to copy them to my PC, swap SD cards, etc. It took about 15 minutes, which I spent browsing accessories. :-)
