You don't say it outright, but it sounds like you have separate issues.
-A new (smart)phone with desktop syncing software, or a smartphone which can work with something you already use (e.g. Outlook, etc.)
-Something which can utilize/import/transfer over your old Palm data(?)
The first part is easy. Windows mobile device center (software) allows you to easily sync w/ Outlook-
The ATT branded Tilt 2 would work for this purpose. Getting that Palm data into Outlook would make the process quite easy. There are other third party programs to help move Palm data, but all aren't compatible with the various handsets/mobile OSs. Before you choose a phone though, you might want to nail down the other stuff first.
Hi, all. I have been a Palm user for many years, and currently have a 2 year old Centro. I know I'm going to have to get a new phone sometime. Was waiting for the Pre to come out on ATT but it no longer has the desktop PIM. Not willing to trust my information to "the cloud." Tried a Blackberry Bold, after having been told that the Desktop Manager had a PIM. Wrong! Took it back becasue I couldn't even transfer my Palm info. Long story short, is there a smart phone that comes with a desktop PIM a la Centro, so I can keep my information on my hard drive? Or is compatible with Win7 Live Mail calendar? If not, I'd be willing to consider the PDA-and-phone combination again,if possible, but would need suggestions there. Help appreciated!
