Yes, change the Palm software to sync to Outlook by launch the Palm Sync Conduit changer.I was using a treo 650 and i want to transfer all of my contact number over to my iPhone, i have over 200 #...is there a simple way to do this besides doing it manually?
all of my contacts are in my palm desktop. but now how do i transfer them into my iPhone? i don't know what outlook is?Have you synced your Treo to your PC with the Palm or windows software. If you did your contacts should be in Outlook Express or Outlook 2003 or some such... Have you done that?
So would i have to import one contact at a time? for option #2?I just did this very successfuly a couple of days ago.
There are two relatively easy ways to do it.
1. Purchase software called Missing Sync for Palm OS. This works very well and is what I did, though in retrospect it is probably not completely necessary...it just makes life easier. You sync using Missing Sync, it imports everything into Apple's Address Book and Calendar. Then you just sync your iPhone in iTunes and set iTunes to sync with your Address Book and Calendar, and voila. It took 5 minutes.
2. In the Palm Software, export your Calendar as a vcal file and your contacts as a vcard file. Import these into Apple's Calendar and Address Book applications. Then sync with iTunes. This is free and just about as easy, but you don't sync photos, videos, or anything other than the calendar and phone list.
Hope this helps!
I was able to sync with both Mac Address Book and Outlook 2007. You may need to uninstall iTunes, then reinstall it. If I can sync with Outlook 2007, the 2003 should be no problem. When you try to sync to Outlook for the first time, it will ask if you want the Phone to overwrite contacts in Outlook or if you want Outlook to overwrite all contacts in the Phone.Boys and Girls: I've had my iPhone since iDay. I have never been able to sync Contacts and Calendar from Outlook 2003. I'm running WinXP Pro SP2. Yes, everything is plugged in correctly (that's the first question Dell tech support asks) and all the settings (checkboxes) are correct in iTunes. Any suggestions? (Yes, besides buying a Mac.)
If you don't have Outlook, try using Yahoo Addresses online. I used it and it worked perfectly.
