Which smart phone?

by adrianpd / December 6, 2010 9:57 AM PST

I presently use a Palm Centro and back my Contacts and Date Book up with Palm Desktop. Which smart phone would be the easiest to transfer all this data to. I particularly want to be able to have my Date Book/Calendar on my device. I have been told that I can transfer from Outlook to an iPhone but it seems very complicated.

I hate to say it but not a single phone has any EASY transfer method.

Here I went with the droid and since I had my stuff in Outlook, it slid right over.

The palm desktop stuff would be more work.

I fear that any glitch or miss and you may be upset. No transfer is perfect but what's in outlook (not EXPRESS!) slides over with ease.

I can't answer if you can transfer but many have.
