I'm coming from the Palm world as well, and it's definately an adjustment. The Palm desktop GUI was so easy to use, and it was nice to be able to make all the edits on the desktop, then just sync everything to the handheld. Oh well.
I was able to use the Switch Device Wizard to move my contacts, Memos and Tasks over from my Palm desktop SW. It choked on my calendar, however.
Make sure your BB is plugged in when you run it - it also says you need your Palm plugged in, but I think that's only if you want to read directly from your Palm device. To read from the Palm desktop SW, I didn't have my Palm plugged in. Just hit Switch Device Wizard, and when it pops up the window with two choices, pick the second one.
That's all I had to do, it ran a translation for each Palm app (memo, contacts, etc.) and everything appeared on my Curve.
