Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I want to download my contacts from my Palm Pilot to my 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
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.

I have a palm centro that I had to do this for. Open your palm desktop application, goto addresses, goto edit and select all (which should highlight all contacts in your address book) then goto edit and forward as vCard which will prompt your email screen to open (need outlook acct first) then using the outlook email send to your email address which you'll receive on your iphone. From there open your email file which shoul prompt you from there to save all contacts to your phone.

Get Companionlink. You'll need to open a gmail account (it's free). Then you'll synch your palm contacts and calendar to gmail, and from there to your iPhone.

You can use iSync if you have a Mac to transfer Palm contacts and calendar to your new iPhone or iPod Touch.

I moved Palm contacts to my new iPhone by first downloading Palm Desktop software for Mac onto my new Mac laptop. Then I synched the Palm Pre with the Mac, which put all my contacts on the Mac. I then followed instructions from solution #4 above, "Show the Address page, select all contacts (Com-A), and export them with File, Export vCard...This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards." Saved this onto the desktop, then just dragged the icon into the "Contacts" icon in the row of icons at the bottom of the screen. Done.

My wife and I just bought an iPhone and wanted
to transfer our contacts from our Samsung i500 Palm phone.
All the instructions I found online suggested going through
Outlook, but that didn't work for me for a variety of reasons.
I found this other method that worked really well.

Sync your palm to outlook, then sync your outlook to your iPhone. It'll grab the outlook contacts and calendar. I've done this for a couple of iPhones now.
