Question about Palm Treo 600 Handheld

1 Answer

How do I purge contacts from the Treo 600?

I have recently changed my email from Thunderbird to MS Outlook. (I know, that's the wrong direction...) As a result of the previous HotSync, the contacts database on the Treo is duplicated. I edited out the extraneous contacts in the Outlook, and now I want Outlook to overwrite the Treo. I tried the HotSync feature "Computer Overwrites HandHeld" but that did not eliminate the dupes. I am afraid that the next sync will re-pollute my Outlook Contacts. Can I purge the contacts from the Treo in one action and drop the contacts in from Outlook?

Re: How do I purge contacts from the Treo 600?

Best would be to perform a hard reset. This will delete all your contacts, but also all your other data on your phone as well such as mail, sms, call log, settings etc.

  • Unscrew the tip from your stylus
  • Locate the "RESET" hole on the back of your Treo 600
  • Press and hold the power button on the top of your Treo and then press the reset button with the stylus pin
  • Remove the pin from the reset hole FIRST, and then release the power button.
  • The screen will say "erase all data?", tap the up arrow to answer yes

    Treo 650..In contacts, how do I delete many at a time instead of one at a time


    I suggest that you create an additional subfolder under your main contacts for your master contact list and use the main contacts file as your list for syncing with your treo. Once you have your contacts moved around you need to change your setting on the sync to have your pc override the handheld. I use pocket mirror to sync with and it's a fairly simple setting to change. I would also suggest that you export your contacts to a back up .pst file before doing the sync. If it messes up on you with duplicates or something you can alwaws just delete the contacts and import them from your back up. I recently cleaned up my duplicates on a treo 600 using this method.

    Can you change from Palm to Outlook on your Treo 600


    Simplest method for 'switchers': Assume that your Treo 600 has the data you need (it does but you are focusing on your Palm Desktop in your question). Install the Palm Desktop software again using the CD but this time, choose the option to synchronize with Outlook during the installation process. This will switch the synchronization to Treo <-> Outlook instalead of Treo<->Palm Desktop. Assuming your Treo is recently synched with Palm Desktop, this will merge the data you have in the Treo with that of your Outlook profile.

    Synching treo 650 with 600


    In a nutshell, make sure you have a recent synch to your PC of the 600. Install the Treo 650 desktop software Synch to the username of the 600 Your are done. You should rename the Treo 600 or hard reset it (you will get data corruption if you synch two devices with the same username to one PC). If you are paranoid, you can make a backup copy of your c:\program files\palm\ folder to begin with. This contains most of your settings and extra software on the 600. As you are an Outlook user, your personal data is probably in a PST file or it is stored in Exchange.

    Override


    What you're talking about is what is called a "collision" when it comes to syncing devices. You use the options in the hotsync manager to decide how to handle collisions.

    Open Palm Desktop.
    Go to Hotsync->Custom
    Pick the outlook calendar conduit
    Select if you want to synchronize intelligently, have outlook overwrite the handheld, or have the handheld overwrite outlook.

    Typically if the treo detects both records on outlook and on the treo, and you've set it to synchronize intelligently, it will make dupliate records and post a message at the end of the hotsync operation.

    HotSync Outlook 2003 with Tungsten E


    I tried all the suggestions that were offered and gave up. But then out of pure craziness I loaded the treo 600 CD that came with my Treo 600 out of curiosity. It loaded and the MS Office 2003 conduits loaded nicely and the problem appears to be solved for now. So I tested and it the Tungsten E Hotsync's feature all appear to be okay. I'm not sure if this is the best solution but it solved a very frustrating problem. The version of Hotsync that loaded is 4.1.0. Hope this helps.
