Default My Palm desktop calendar!!

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if there is a calendar program that works well with the 7520? I just got my phone a week ago and have been trying to figure out how to get a calendar on the desktop like with my old palm. I have searched quite a bit, even on this site, and I must be missing something!

Thanks so much for your help.

Most people use Outlook on their PC; they keep their calendar in Outlook and using the included Intellisync software to sync it up. There is no special BlackBerry equivalent for Palm Desktop. Use Outlook.

Here is a guide that will help you get your contacts/calandar/etc from palm to outlook, and ultimately to the blackberry......

Converting Palm Data to the Blackberry using MS Outlook

There are several ways to convert your data from the Palm Desktop to be usable on the Blackberry device.

Requirements
Original CD ROM that came with your Palm device, with Palm Desktop software
MS Outlook for a Personal Information Manager (PIM)
Your Palm device and sync cables

Option I: Reinstall Palm Desktop Software

This is a potentially painful process because there is a risk of lost and/or duplication of your data. But, it is fairly easy and straightforward.
1. Sync the Palm to the computer (Palm Desktop).
2. Uninstall Palm Desktop.
3. Reinstall the Palm software and choose to sync with Outlook.
4. Sync the Palm with Outlook.
5. Uninstall the Palm software.
6. Install the Blackberry software.
7. Sync the BB with Outlook.

Option II: Install Pocket Mirror software
This is a much safer bet to eliminate potential data loss and/or duplication. Pocket Mirror is a software program that is included on the Palm Desktop software CD ROM that ships with every Palm device.
1. Sync the Palm to the computer (Palm Desktop).
2. Insert you Palm Desktop software CD ROM and go to. \palmsfw\disk1\PocketMirror, and run the Setup.exe file.
3. During installation, choose which application to sync with Outlook.
4. Re-sync your Palm to the computer.
5. Check to make sure that the data was copied to MS Outlook.
6. Install the Blackberry software.
7. Sync the BB with Outlook.
8. Uninstall the Palm Desktop software and Pocket Mirror.

Will this work with Outlook 2002 or just 2003?
