After a 15 relationship with Palm, I am trying out the Blackberry.
The store tried to transfer the contacts and at first it looked like all 1300 contacts had moved. When I got home and opened some up, I found that only the names, numbers and notes had moved. All the numbers had not moved and the notes were shortened.
I tied to use the transfer wizard in the manager, but the screen was grayed out to select both the treo or the palm desktop and I couldn't use it. Both phones are plugged in and the computer recognizes both of them. (The Treo may be failing, but can still sync with the desktop)
Formerly when I moved from Casio to Palm, then upgraded the Palm, I could just export the data into a tab or comma delineated file, move it around to match the recipient device. I can't find a way to do this with the BB Manager.
Is there a way to use outlook to move the data? I can sync the treo to Outlook if needed. Has anyone been able to solve this? If I am forced to retype the information, is it possible to use the manager to the contacts and sync it that way.
I am forced to keep the BB since I have a lot of business contacts, the treo 700p is failing and Verizon has no replacement in the foreseeable future.
I have never personally used the Device Switch Wizard in the Desktop Manager, but when I plug my phone in it is not grayed out.
If you can move it to outlook your blackberry should import it. I dont get why the device switch wizard is failing though.
