| | Seeking advice - taming the migration monster
Please Login to Remove!
Hello everyone. Brand new to this forum. I have a Curve 8310, recently acquired. I previously used a Motorola RIZR with T-mobile, but I moved to an area where T-mobile is sketchy, so I switched to AT&T. When I called AT&T, they had refurbished Curve 8310 for only $30 bucks, so that was a no brainer - I wanted qwerty and a camera on a smartphone and the price was right, so I went for it.
My calendar and phone book contacts are on Palm Desktop v4.1.4 which I use with an old Zire. I would like to stop carrying two devices, but I'm not sure what to do to get my data from Palm Desktop into the Curve, and then to continue to be able to add/edit data using a desktop app.
Can I make the Curve work/sync with Palm Desktop?
If not, is there some other desktop app to which I could migrate the Palm data and sync with the Curve?
Complicating matters - I have a lot of email contact information in Thunderbird, and I'm wondering if there is a way to migrate that data to the Curve too, but that's really secondary to making it so I don't have to carry both the Curve and the Palm Zire.
Thanks for any advice. I've been googling around about this but not having much luck, so I was glad to find this forum.
