There are several apps on the app store that do this pretty smoothly. some are free, some not. I don't use any personally, but I have used them to try em out. I don't want to plug any in specific, but if you check the app store and search for outlook tasks, you will find what you need.

I want to sync my Palm Desktop, from a TREO 650, on my iMAC to my new iphone. I was able to sync everything off the desktop except for the Palm desktop, where all my phone numbers, addresses, memos,...


The best way is to transfer the Calendar and Contacts to Outlook. The iPhone can then be synced with Outlook.

Unfortunately, tasks and memos do not transfer. You will need to find other 3rd party apps that are supported on the iPhone and transfer your data to them.

Two examples are:

1. Evernote - This is good for memo. You can export your memos and then import them into Evernote. unfortunately, when I did this, it was a bit tricky. I even had to write a little PERL script to create the format that it wanted.

2. RemembertheMilk - this is a todo application

Did Apple Fix Top 5 iPhone 1.0 Problems?


There’s no doubt that the iPhone has revolutionized the mobile world, reinventing the touch screen and adding cool widgets in a simple yet slick interface.

However, the iPhone 1.0 also had several annoying and persistent problems which hampered the experience and caused a lot of headaches to the average user.

I’ve looked into the FixYa database and pulled out the most common iPhone problems. Steve, I hope you’re reading it this time…

IPhone touch screen not working – Over 200 people complained that their touch screen stopped working. For some it came from nowhere; other had a better explanation (phone fell into the toilet). The iPhone definitely needs a more reliable touch screen to keep customers satisfied.

SMSing – Looks like neither sending SMS to multiple recipients nor forwarding an SMS are easy tasks. SMS is way more popular than email, especially in Europe and Asia. Apple needs to fix this feature and improve the user interface.

No YouTube for You – iPhone users love multimedia and surf the internet through their mobile phone 50 times more than the average user. That’s why it is so important to have the major websites run smoothly on the Apple gadget. Viewing videos on YouTube turned out to be an impossible mission on the 1st generation iPhone.

Toothache – Bluetooth is by no means a new technology; how come Apple couldn’t make it work?

Outlook sync issues - I’m not sure if this is the love/hate relationship between Steve and Bill, but many iPhone customers who use outlook found it extremely difficult to sync up their outlook to the iPhone. While there’s definitely a way to do it, a simpler more seamless process is in need.

These are the 5 most popular iPhone 1.0 problems on FixYa. While it seems like the SMS and Outlook problems have been resolved on the 2.0 version, we might have to wait and see if Apple will fix the other problems in the future..

Sync iphone to outlook contacts


Speaking of syncing iPhone with Outlook, you can take advantage of iTunes to sync contacts. sync-iphone-outlook-contacts-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-3-0.jpg
  1. Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable, and launch iTunes.
  2. Click iPhone icon, and choose Info the Summary Panel in left sidebar.
  3. Check Sync Contacts with, and choose in the drop-down menu.
  4. Click Apply at the right bottom to start syncing iPhone contacts with Outlook.
When the sync is finished, the contacts will show up in the Outlook contacts. Besides syncing contacts, you can also sync iPhone calendars and mails to outlook as well. But if you have noticed, the sync of iTunes is an annoying issue among iPhone users as during the sync of iTunes, the application may erase the available files in their iPhone.

How to sync contacts from iphone to outlook 2003?


Hi,

When you connect your iPhone to the PC that you always sync with, Go to Info tab, Check the box Sync Contacts with: and select Outlook. Then make sure that you check the box Put new contacts created on this phone into the group: and select a subfolder in your main contacts folder.

This way, all the contacts from your iPhone will be saved into another folder in your main contacts folder of your Outlook PST.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks
Sandeep

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.


This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.


Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.
