    Smile Migrate data from Palm Desktop to BB.

    Advertisement



    Done this a million times. Hey, just like to change phones alot. However, the sync process can't/won't get past translating the calendar. Just freezes. Data is coming from old Palm Vx hotsynced to current palm desktop program (everything comes over fine). Link up with USB to 8700 and attempt to import PIM from palm desktop and crashola. Worked fine with my treo to 7100. BB software 4.1.0.9. When I hit cancel it tells me that some errors have occured, but I can't even find where the log is.

    confuzed, welcome to PinStack.

    What version of Desktop Manager are you using? Are any of the Calender entries Recurring Events with no end date? do any have attachments in the Notes Section?

    As Rcbjr stated, most calender problems are do to attachments or invalid symbols in the name portion.

    Thanks for bringing them up and reminding my william, I had forgotten about the invalid symbols problem.

    So, just to reiterate because I'm having the same issue...if there are attachments in the calendar they won't sync and cause the whole process to crash or error out? What are the invalid symbols and why isn't there an error log?

    I'm using Treo 650 to BB 8700. Desktop manager version 4.1.1.9

    Any assistance is much appreciated!

    Wildgirl, Welcome to PinStack.

    There is an error log in the Desktop Manager. It's under Reconcilliation/Configuration and click on the View Log.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: Migrate data from Palm Desktop to BB.

    I would like to know if it is possible to use some of the same software that Palm uses with our Blackberries? I have several programs that I would love to use with my BB7290. (I still have my TusgesenE - Palm). Appreciate any feedback -- thanks!
