Move Memos from a Palm device into the iPhone's Notes app
Authored by: hintfool on Mar 19, '10 11:48:44AM

I just joined this Forum, and I already feel silly for not doing that years ago! Looks like some pro-level users here. And, this topic really speaks to me!

I hope your solution works as well for me on my present setup:

Powerbook G4, OS 10.4.11, Palm Desktop 4.2.2. I also have Entourage 11.4, as part of my Office 2004...

Please describe how you handled the Migration of all your Palm Desktop Data to iPhone. I heard about Missing Sync and about installing Palm Conduits into Entourage, and then syncing Treo to Entourage...

I've seen some interesting ideas here http://bit.ly/dmst0B particularly about the PIM Programs for iPhone! I'd love to address them too! But first I gotta get all my data Exported from Treo 700p to iPhone! I hope that your method works fore, cause it looks simpler. Having BackupBuddy on Treo, and SuperDuper on my PB G4 is my extra safety net!

In your case it was 340 Memos, but I have almost 2,400 Memos... So, will Missing Sync Demo allow me to do that, or is there a limit? Same limit Q re: the number of Contacts! Usually Demo Versions have limits... I also wonder if I should be doing all this Migration on my present setup (see above), or this Summer, when I plan to buy the Newest Macbook Pro and the Newest iPhone! So, it's not only moving from Treo to iPhone, it's also new hardware and OS... If I like Missing Sync, maybe I'll buy it... For now, I just need to bring my Data over to iPhone, and keep it simple, as I get used to it!

As part of my research, at Apple store I verified that Palm Desktop and Quicken 2004 installed OK on floor model of Macbook Pro 17... They did. I ran them with a few dummy records: a few Contacts, Memosl Transactions in Quicken. It worked. I canít say that they would run flawlessly after that, cause I didnít put my actual files on there, and didnít try to sync! So, I might be able to install Palm Desktop on my new Macbook Pro and have one less obstacle! I was told that my Office 2004 will run on OS 10.6 too... Then I probably should switch from Entourage to Mail.... All this seems like a big surgery, but maybe it's not that complicated!

I wish I had a spare OS 10.6 Mac to do all that as a rehearsal, but alas I don't have it... So, I guess I'll get MBP first, settle in there, than iPhone? Not sure yet in what order to do this BIg Upgrade! But, for sure, I won't do anything till both MPB and iPhone Updated Hardware this Summer!

In general, I wish Apple made it a lot easier for Treo users to switch! Palm will obviously not help them:)!

Thanks to all for any all advise on this topic! I am looking forward to learning from all of you on this Forum!

P.S.

How do I insert url links in posts... I couldn't figure out how to use [link:]

Is there a way to Edit Post after posting it? I hope so, cause sometimes it would be nice to make corrections...
