Default Palm data transfer to 8900 = Success!

Please Login to Remove!

Still a newbie at the forums so be gentle.

Four Days with my 8900 and it has become an ongoing adjustment. Having come from a Palm Centro, Iím hoping the adjustment phase lessens in a couple weeks (adjusting from a touch screen ain't easy). Thanks to all who have written enlightening posts on the use of the 8900. You swayed me with this choice vs the iPhone. Now Iíd like to give back.

I spent hours trying to move my contacts, calendar, etc from the Centro to (eventually) the 8900. The BB Desktop manager didnít recognize the Centro and exporting the data from the Centro and importing into Outlook was far from seamless (mapping never worked well).

By a lark, I found a $25.00 application called PocketCopy by Chapura Software. It moved my contacts, calendar, tasks and notes into Outlook. I then synched the 8900 with Outlook using the BB Desktop manager and I am now a happy camper. The entire process (I had 9 years worth of data to move) took 50 minutes (I wish I could get back the hours lost from previous attempts). There is no demo version.

After searching the forum, I didn't read any mention of this software (maybe because for most the time spent on transferring information outweigh the cost???). Anyway, as I said, I wanted to give back a little something to ya'll. BTW, I gain nothing by anyone purchasing/using the software other then knowing I was able to help.

Thanks. I am waiting for my 8900 to arrive, and like you I have a Palm (Tungsten C) with more that 10 years of data.
