    I have a Palm Treo 650, containing all my contacts, calendar, and memos. I also have my email addresses in my Mail on my iMac G4, using OS 10.3.9, and Palm Desktop 4.2.1. What is the most reliable way for me to get ready to move all of the above into a new iPhone?




    Thanks,

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.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. Bring up Windows Address Book. You can find this in Start, All Program, Accessories, Address Book.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, drag the vCard file you created in step 1 to the Windows Address Book window. I had never used Windows Address Book, so it was empty. If yours isn't empty, you'll have to decide whether you want to merge your contacts.
  4. When you drop the file, you'll get a window asking you to confirm the first contact. Press OK. Another window will come up for the second contact. Press OK until all windows are gone. It's easiest to hold down the Enter key.
  5. Bring up iTunes with your iPhone plugged in. Go to your iPhone page, to the Info tab, and configure it to sync from Windows Address Book. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the window.
  6. Sync your iPhone. Verify that your contacts transferred over.
  7. Tell iTunes to stop sync'ing with Windows Address Book, since you probably only wanted a one-way sync. Your contacts will be backed up anyway by iTunes, so the Address Book sync feature doesn't buy you much.

    Waow !, impressive and efficient, I've been searching that solution since I've got an Iphone 4 and it works just the the same way with it.
    No need to use µsoft Outlook
    the process to transfer 340 contacts between a Palm Z22 to a Vcard file, open this file in windows address book and synchronise it with I tunes to my Iphone4 took nearly 5 mn.
    Thanks a lot guest !

  • plogan7 Oct 31, 2010

    I've been trying for two Months to transfer Addresses from my Palm TX to my iPhone4. This worked great. I had to use an old Dell Note Book for the Windows Address Book, and I put iTunes on the Dell. I tried doing it on my iMac, but it wouldn't recognize the vCard File. This is the easiest way to get your Addresses from the Palm to the iPhone. Thank you.

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.

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

Converting from Palm Pilot TX to iTunes


There is probably a compatibility issue between the TX, Pocket Copy, and Iphone. TX is pretty picky about what can be used to transfter information. They only recommend Outlook and the one that is included on the TX CD.

TX and IPhones are different systems as well. You could try to get the files exported from the TX into a CSV and see if you can import the files into Iphone that way, if it will import them.

Good luck on that one.
