Re: Replacement Treo won't load my info

I would suggest doing a hard reset on the replacement treo. After that do a hotsync, and choose exhisting user from the drop down menu. This should work.

Vista hotsync

Older palm products and vista aren't compatible. You either needs to transfer info via bluetooth or upgrade your palm if you wish to continue using vista.

Unable to hotsync treo 600 with my computer

What is happening with the Sync? Does your PC and the Palm Desktop Manager recognize your TREO 600? If not, the issue may be that somehow the driver for your device was removed. I would suggest upgrading to the latest version of the Palm Desktop Manager and try plugging in your TREO 600 again and try synching.

Here is the location for the free software from Palm.

You also have to make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Manager is the same as the type of cable you are using. If it is a USB cable, have that setting on your PC's Palm Desktop Manager Hotsync settings.

How do I get the hotsync to sync everytime there is a change?

You may be used to PocketPC ActiveSync. HotSync is an asynchronous synch model - you synch upon demand but not continuously. Pocket PC devices synch all the time while in the cradle. There are advantages to both models. If you want to synch a Palm OS device, you need to press the button. There are some extra appliactions available on that will force your device to synch upon a schdule.

How do I purge contacts from the Treo 600?

Best would be to perform a hard reset. This will delete all your contacts, but also all your other data on your phone as well such as mail, sms, call log, settings etc.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes

    What you're talking about is what is called a "collision" when it comes to syncing devices. You use the options in the hotsync manager to decide how to handle collisions.

    Open Palm Desktop.
    Go to Hotsync->Custom
    Pick the outlook calendar conduit
    Select if you want to synchronize intelligently, have outlook overwrite the handheld, or have the handheld overwrite outlook.

    Typically if the treo detects both records on outlook and on the treo, and you've set it to synchronize intelligently, it will make dupliate records and post a message at the end of the hotsync operation.

    Acrobat reader for Treo

    Go to, select "downloads", then select the acrobat reader. When it starts walking you through the download process select "other" when you get the option from the platform. It will then give you a pull down box. Select PalmOS and download it to your PC. Run the install program. During that process it will ask you to hit the hot sync button and will download the reader to the phone. Once you have the reader client installed on your phone you run the PC side which will take a standard PDF and shrink it down for your Treo 600 and download it through the hotsync process to your Treo

    HotSync Outlook 2003 with Tungsten E

    I tried all the suggestions that were offered and gave up. But then out of pure craziness I loaded the treo 600 CD that came with my Treo 600 out of curiosity. It loaded and the MS Office 2003 conduits loaded nicely and the problem appears to be solved for now. So I tested and it the Tungsten E Hotsync's feature all appear to be okay. I'm not sure if this is the best solution but it solved a very frustrating problem. The version of Hotsync that loaded is 4.1.0. Hope this helps.
