Default transfer data from palm Vx to blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm about to switch to a blackberry, I believe the 6750 or something that looks like that (am getting it through work). I'm wondering if there is a way that I can transfer my calendar, address book etc. from my somewhat old palm Vx to my blackberry withouth buying 3rd party software.

The first thing I tried was to transfer my data from the palm desktop software to outlook, but that appears to require that I buy the pocketmirror software from chapura, about $40 even for this one time transfer. I also tried import/export, but that requires lots of field mapping and the phone and email fields don't quite line up so the data would be very messed up. In the end I'll be using the blackberry with outlook. Any suggestions would be greatly greatly appreciated. I'd love to avoid spending $40 on software from chapura just to make a one time transfer of my data.

There should have been a CD that came with the Palm (yeah, I know the Vx is a little older) which has software included in it called the Palm Outlook Conduits. The Outlook conduits form the link between the Palm and Outlook. If you can find the CD and reinstall the software, you should not need to buy Pocket Mirror.
