If you are on a Mac, then it's as easy as changing HotSync to use iSync. All of the info on your Palm Treo (assuming your talking Treo) will transfer to the iApps. Then it's just a matter of syncing with the iPhone.Hopefully someone is writing a software to allow auto conversion of Palm contacts, memos, to do list and calendar to the iPhone at a click of a button.
I should have read your post. Then I could have simply said, "what he said".All the contacts on my Treo are also found in the address book on my Mac. Seems to follow that once I sync my iPhone to my computer that all the same contacts will be uploaded to my iPhone. But that's a Mac. Not sure about PC's.
If you're having trouble, have you checked out Everythingtreo.com? There's even a Mac OS forum you may find helpful.I'm using the Treo 680. I saw my phone numbers and calendar appointments on my iMac but not my To Do list and Memos. Also, all my "hidden" info on my Treo were shown when I did the iSync...
At the moment I am syncing my Treo 700p with the Palm Desktop on my intel iMac via bluetooth. I have iSync turned off. I am also taking a bit of wait and see on the iPhone myself as I just got the Treo and a new Verizon contract last fall so it would cost me more to get out and by a iPhone. Final problem is that for me when i am out west digging dinos I find that Cinglular/ATT does not have good coverage in areas off main interstates (like Montana).If you are on a Mac, then it's as easy as changing HotSync to use iSync.

For PC users, that's the great unknown. I'm surprised more hasn't been written about this. (hmmmmm....gives me an idea). You know the iPhone will sync with iTunes, but what type of conduit will allow syncing with Outlook, etc.
