    Hi wcc, welcome. Haven't used Treo before, not sure if it's Palm OS, if yes, it's painless. Just sync your Treo data in computer first and then make sure you have the version 4.2 (or above) BB Desktop Manager (DM) which contains a "Switch Device Wizard" doing the switch flawlessly. The only drawback is that all your information in custom fields of Datebook will be placed in other fields (in User1..2..3..and 4 fields etc). It may be a workaround by changing the User fields in you new BB first, though I haven't tried it, I just let them in the User fields.

    wcc,

    I'm also a very recent treo 650 convert. After six years on palm OS (2 on the treo) and a week on my Pearl, I'm about to switch back - mostly because the 'Switch Device Wizard' doesn't work for me. It opens my palm desktop software, gives a dialogue box titled "Calendar" and says 'starting translation' but never gets past seven bars on the progress meter, even if I let it run over night.

    Did you ever get your switch device wizard to work? Between this (most important issue - I'm just not manually transferring all the info for 750 contacts into the pearl!), the fact that you can't separate email from SMS, no threaded sms and the totally weak calendar - I'm really left wondering what people really think is so great about BB other than the form factor and push email (which can btw be arranged on treos, as you probably know).

    I'm feeling like I took a big downgrade here. Any advice?!

    Since I was originally using the Palm Desktop, I ended up installing the Outlook conduit (which I had to dig out my treo 650 CD to do), syncing to Outlook, then syncing the Pearl to Outlook, which worked to get my contacts & calendar into the Pearl.
