    Question transfer memos, etc. from 7290 to 8700c

    Advertisement



    Is there a way to transfer the data from a 7290 to an 8700? Mainly memo's, calendar items, and contacts.

    The old device (7290) has a sticky trackwheel so the user went and got a new 8700c. I'd like to be able to transfer the data from one to the other (she's an SVP, so it would be really really good for me). Ideas?

    I am thinking I can make a backup of the 7290 using the Desktop Manager software, then just load that file and restore the specifics to the 8700c, which is charging right now, so I haven't been able to try it yet.


    Thanks in advance...

    I don't believe you'll have any issues using the DM backup to transfer those items, however should you have a problem, you can always sync the 7290 with OUTLOOK, then switch devices and sync OUTLOOK with the 8700c. It's what I did when I switched my 7290 for my 8700

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll have to try that out. I just got a new 8700 and was wondering how to do that.

    Thanks again!
