    Import Data from PalmTX to BlackBerry 8703e??

    Advertisement



    Would like to import data from my PalmTX to my new BlackBerry 8703e. Desktop Manager has import option for Palm Treo only. What's up here? Is there a way to get the calender, etc from my TX onto this neat BB?

    All replies appreciated,

    Mike

    Welcome Apostle01!
    You can also transfer your palmTX info to outlook and then use desktop manager to get it into your bb..

    I've never tried to do it directly on a PalmTX via desktop manager..sorry..
    But you should not have any problems doing it via outlook, then you would be able to sync with outlook as you see fit..
    Let us know how it goes!

    There may be an option in the palm desktop option to export the data as say a excel file or a tab delimited file, if the palm can export that see if the balckberry desktop can import that file for a more direct route.

    Unless something new has come on the scene, there's no software that I'm aware of that will allow synchronization of the Palm desktop with Outlook. Is there something I'm missing here? Please help and,

    thanks very much,

    There should be an Outlook conduit on the TX CD. That will set up the synch with Outlook.

    UPDATE to my posting: There is a program called Pocket Copy that transfers data from the Palm Desktop to Outlook. It's $24.95. I purchased it, transferred data to Outlook and downloaded to my BlackBerry. All went well except I had several duplications in my hundreds of "Contacts" list. Be sure you go into Outlook and straighten things up before you download, if you follow in my footsteps.

    Thanks for all your help folks.
