Address Book Not Synching

When I synch my samsung i500 with Palm desktop on my laptop, everything works great, except that the Address Book is not synching at all. I cannot figure out how to add a conduit to add Address Book to my HotSync routine. I can see that it is doing something with Outlook, but I want it to use the Palm Address Book. Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling the software? thanks in advance for your help!

If addressbook is presently syncing to Contacts in Outlook, then you will need to reinstall the desktop to alter the conduits. The reinstall should overlay the present version. Just select to alter conduits when requested.

I have a palm centro and change to iphone. how can I move?

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.


OR





Sync your palm to outlook, then sync your outlook to your iPhone. It'll grab the outlook contacts and calendar.

Downloading contacts from Palm to 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 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.

Synching Vx handheld w/ Palm desktop 4.1 AND Outlook 2k?

Are you trying to get your data in both Palm Desktop and Outlook? Are you saying that you wish your data to synch three ways - between your handheld + Outlook + Palm Desktop. This is not an entirely tenable strategy as it is impossible for synchronization software to understand what it would mean if you altered the same event in both Palm Desktop and in Outlook. If you need to keep a copy of your data in Palm Desktop, PocketMirror has an advanced feature for making onetime backup copies. Open the Chapura Settings dialog, choose your username and then tap on Settings. You will get the option for each of the Outlook conduits to make a one time backup of your data to Palm Desktop. This is a really useful feature for making sure you have an offline copy of your data outside of Outlook.
