Re: address book

Did you delete any of your Categories? Did you perhaps set a Filter then delete that Category leaving the Filter on but no contacts set with that Filter anymore?

Re: address book

Hey guys, I think I figured it out. My girlfriend was having the same problem. I didn't have any filters to uncheck, so I created a filter called "Contacts", which was checked by default. I un-checked it and now I see everything! Yipee!

You have to uninstall your desktop manager from your computer again. Then on your phone, go to settings, options, advanced options, service books. You should see some "desktop" service books there. Delete all the service books with "desktop" in the name. Then reinstall the desktop manager and make sure you choose the option for "personal" email and not business email-even if it is business email. The phone is trying to communicate with an enterprise server and you obviously don't use one.

Address book

open your 'empty' address book and click on the MENU button (left of the rotater wheel) and select FILTER and UNCHECK anything that is checked there. All your addresses should reappear. It happened to me and I have no idea how it happened, but it was a relief to get them all back so easily. Hope that works.

Address book won't show contacts

Go into your Address book
Hit the Menu Button
Go to Filter
Make sure that both the business and personal box's are NOT checked
If they are checked you need to uncheck them
This should restore your contacts... If it does not restore them then you have a Bigger Issue!!!

Good evening....i think i left my palm "on" & not charged last night. i opened it this afternoon & it was a white screen that said RESET. i tried to turn on or off & pressed restart...

Hi, from the sounds of your situation, im sorry to tell you that your address book is gone. If you have hotsync with your desktop before, you may be able to retrieve a copy of your address book from your last sync. Otherwise there are companies available to recover data from pdas but their services are very expensive.

How do I copy address book and calendar from Tungsten E to Outlook?

In order to synchronize with Outlook you need to setup the replication to be with Outlook instead of Palm Desktop. On you cd there should be a third party piece of software (Chapura). Install the required software and follow the instructions.

'Reset' each time after hotsynching

Do you still have administrative access to your laptop? IIRC there are some problems with using PD with a non-admin account.

I would recommend that you back up the "good" backup data on the Laptop. In PD, Choose Tools/Options, the "Data Directory" entry shows where the data is stored (in a subdirectory that looks like the first six characters of the Palm's User ID)

Synch question

If you have PocketMirror from Chapura (included with certain Palm handhelds), you can choose to install conduits that synchronize MS Outlook with the handheld applications Date Book, Address Book, To Do List, and Memo Pad. You can choose to synchronize these applications with either Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook, but not both. If you want to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook, DO NOT install Palm Desktop from the Web. Instead, run the Palm Desktop installer from the CD that came with your handheld and select the option "Synchronize with Microsoft Outlook" when the choice appears. Visit for more information about Chapura(R) PocketMirror.
