Palm Tungsten and migration of information

by HERSHEY / March 1, 2011 7:18 AM PST

I have had a fabulous Palm Tungsten C since 2004. I have kept my own medical information on the Palm calendar which is the easiest to use and is great as an alarm. The battery will not take a full charge anymore, and this medical data is crucial. The information cannot be migrated to my Droid, which does not have the calendar/alarm features of the Palm. Since Palm is now part of HP, is there a way I can have an updated battery installed in this Palm Tungsten C?

Thanks

I googled this and found there are ways to get that info to google calendar. Yes, the Palm calendar app was pretty good.

Also I wrote PalmOS apps so to write there is no way is to dismiss those that do this today.

-> And about the battery, did you check pdaparts.com or amazon.com?

Thanks for the lead to Amazon. I see the battery and hope that it is not one left over from 2004 ! Are there special tools that you know of that are needed to dis-assemble the case or any internal parts? I see the plug is the familiar type.

Also, thanks for the great reminder to sync all the data before attempting anything .

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
