Hi!
The accounts from the outlook express of your tungsten E can not be transferred as they can again be created in iPhone. However, the folders and the mails in your tungsten E can be transferred to your iPhone 3G and transfer of calender and contacts can also be done.

See link for details----

    The picture is less clear, however, when synchronizing address book and calendar data. On the Mac, it’s a no-brainer: The iPhone pulls down information from the Mac’s built-in apps automatically. But PC users running Microsoft Outlook have a few extra steps to take care of. If that describes you, read on.


    For this story, I used an HP Pavilion dv2910us laptop running Windows Vista Premium along with a 16GB iPhone 3G, but any computer running Vista should work. I tested the process with local Outlook sync. Most folks aren’t running into trouble with the iPhone’s new over-the-air Exchange feature, so I stayed away from that for now.

    Note: To minimize the chance of conflicts—something that many people around the Web have reported—I began with a brand-new install of Vista and Outlook 2003. And I deleted all mail accounts in my test iPhone 3G before beginning.



    With that out of the way, here are the steps necessary to synchronize your iPhone 3G with Vista and Outlook:

    1. Run all relevant software updates.
    Boot Microsoft Outlook and run Help | Check for Updates. Also make sure that no new Vista updates are available before continuing to step 2. If there are new updates waiting, install them first.

    2. Set up your mail account.
    For this how-to, I tested a Gmail account set to IMAP, which I then synchronized with Outlook 2003. (To convert your Gmail account to IMAP, head to Settings | Forwarding and POP/IMAP | IMAP Access and click Enable IMAP.) It doesn’t matter what kind of e-mail account you use: The iPhone 3G will sync with both POP and IMAP accounts.

    3. Delete your iPhone 3G’s current mail configuration.
    If you’ve already tried this before without success, delete what’s currently in the iPhone 3G and start over. From the main menu, go to Settings | Mail, Contacts, Calendars | Accounts. For any accounts listed, click each and then click the big red Delete button on the next page. The iPhone 3G can’t sync over the air with an Exchange server and also sync to a desktop Outlook setup; try it and you’ll see the following error message: “Your contacts are being pushed to your iPhone over the air from Microsoft Exchange” instead of the Info tab you need in one of the later steps.

    4. Connect your iPhone 3G to your PC.
    When you do this, iTunes should fire up automatically on your PC. iTunes may prompt you to update your iPhone 3G to the latest version (2.0.2, at the time of this writing) if it’s not current. Note: Be sure to also update iTunes to version 7.7.1 or later. Some users have reported online that the 7.7.1 update fixes issues related to Outlook synchronization.


    5. Set Outlook contacts to synchronize.
    In iTunes, click on the name of your iPhone 3G underneath Devices in the left panel. Then across the top, click the second Info tab, and scroll down to the Contacts section. Check the box that says Sync contacts with Outlook, and click All contacts if it’s not already selected.

    6. Set calendars and e-mail messages to synchronize as well.
    Repeat the process for the calendar and e-mail sections, which are located just below the Contacts section.

    7. Apply the changes.
    When you’re done, click Apply. The iPhone 3G should begin synchronizing on its own. You shouldn’t even have to disconnect the iPhone 3G to see if it worked. Click the iPhone’s button, slide the lock to Unlock, and then check the Calendar and Contacts sections. Your Outlook data should now be on the iPhone.

    From here on out, each time you synchronize your iPhone 3G, it should automatically pull mail, contacts, and calendar updates from Microsoft Outlook, and vice versa.

    If you’re still having trouble, leave your current e-mail account aside and add a new one in Outlook. Try creating a test Gmail account, which allows free POP and IMAP sync. Set up that test account with Outlook and again with the iPhone 3G using the steps above. This way you can isolate the problem and see if it’s something related to your current account’s PST file in Outlook, or a problem somewhere further down the chain

These steps are as if you are primarily using the ipod and want to also use the palm:

1. Install the Outlook conduit for your Palm
2. Plug in the Itouch
3. Open Itunes, click on your devices name under "DEVICES" on the left side of the iTunes window.
5. When you device shows up, click on "Info" tab
6. Check "Sync with Contacts" and "Sync with Calendar" and make sure the pull down menu is set to sync with Outlook
7. Click "Apply" - this will sync your iTouch with Outlook
8. Sync your palm with Outlook, make sure your contacts and calendar synced
9. From this point on, if you add a date to your iTouch, when you sync it will go to Outlook, then sync your palm, and it will go to your palm.
10. If you want to go from your palm to your iTouch, reverse.

Hope this helps.

If you are on a Mac, then it's as easy as changing HotSync to use iSync. All of the info on your Palm Treo (assuming your talking Treo) will transfer to the iApps. Then it's just a matter of syncing with the iPhone.

For PC users, that's the great unknown. I'm surprised more hasn't been written about this. (hmmmmm....gives me an ideasync Palm tungsten E contacats and calendar to new - wink3.gif). You know the iPhone will sync with iTunes, but what type of conduit will allow syncing with Outlook, etc.

Putting contacts on the SIM card


When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.

You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your iPhone.

Transfer calendar info from Tungsten/E Palm to iphone 3GS


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

Downloading contacts from Palm to iphone


Just save the contacts as described above "Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards."
Then send the file you saved as an e-mail attachment - using any mail (i.e. gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc) - to your i-phone e-mail. Open this email on the i-phone and push the attachement - it then asked you if you want to add these, click (push?) yes, and select eithr merge or new and voila you got them.
