I created a .CSV file from my contacts list in Outlook 2003 and then imported onto the PDA. When I check the contacts file, it placed them into the Business section of telephone listing because I did not have a choice to place it in Personal, but the information pulled across only includes name and address and e-mails no telephone numbers or mobiles. In the settings under PIM it asks if you want Home (address & Fax No: or Office Address & Fax No: details imported so I selected Home and then it asked if you want from today forward info or all and I selected all. Could this be because the fields in Outlook 2003 are different to the fields used in the PDA? Has anyone come across this problem?

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.
Google Sync details:
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 new phone.
Based on the following bolded statement from http://www.htc.com/ca/faqs.aspx?p_id=269&cat=78&id=99764 , I'm not sure you can do that with stock software...
How do I copy Contacts from my SIM to my phone? To copy contact entries between the device memory and the SIM card, follow these steps: Note: Only copying from the SIM card to the device is supported.
From the Home screen, tap the Contacts icon.
Press Menu and select Import Contacts.
Perform one of the following:
Move one at a time: Press and hold on and select Import from the pop up Menu.
Press the Menu key.
Tap Import all. If you want to get the contacts off your phone, what I suggest is to synch your contacts with your Gmail account, and export from there to a .csv or .ical file.
Another way to do it is to go to the marketplace
and download the "contact exporter" app, then export contacts as a .csv file. then
you can log into Gmail and import all those contacts from the same .csv
file. this will automatically sync over the air with your another Android phone. Very easy.
Sorry, linward. There's currently no easy solution for your problem. It seems MS is still working on fleshing out the BCM Mobile program further, but right now what you've seen is what you've got.
There are ugly workaround options, but anytime you want to update your information it could take a solid hour or two to run through. These involve exporting your BCM data via a CSV file, editing out unneeded fields in Excel, then importing the edited CSV file into your Outlook contacts and syncing. :-/
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.
Palm tech fixed my problem.
It turned out some items in Outlook Calendar were corrupted, thus preventing a synch with LifeDrive. The fix is to export the Calendar items and import them. This process fixes corruption. After doing that I successfully synchronized Calendar with LifeDrive.
More specifically. I moved Calendar items to a different folder, thus emptying the main Calendar folder. I exported the Calendar items in the new folder to a CSV (Windows) file. Then, I imported that CSV (Windows) file into the main Calendar folder. Finally,I did a synch and all worked perfectly.
yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm
(which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.
