I am a happy new Blackberry so far, but have come across something that is very annoying. I am attempting to move the data off my Palm TX, but the Blackberry Desktop does not recognize the version of the Palm Desktop software that I am using.
What is making this difficult:

Hi and welcome to the forums!
Would you be open to buying Outlook 2003? If you can get your contacts into a csv file format, you can transfer them into outlook. And then to the BB. This could be done independent of your Palm software. I would have to research the calendar, if you tell me what version of palm software you current calendar resides on.
This is a third party app that would convert everything into a .csv that would be imported to Outlook .

Well, I finally got my Palm data transferred. First, I was pleasantly suprised that Yahoo actually does have support for the Task List, which was the only thing I thought it was lacking. I performed a sync of my BB with Yahoo and saw that a test entry of each type was uploaded to Yahoo and vice versa. Therefore, my problem was then a matter of getting the Palm data up to Yahoo.
Approach 1: Use the Yahoo Sync tool with the Palm Desktop.
Result: Didn't work. Yahoo Sync doesn't support Palm Desktop 6.2.
Approach 2: Save the Palm data to an archive file and use the Yahoo Import tool.
Result: Didn't work. The file format for Palm Desktop 6.2 was not supported by Yahoo.
Approach 3: Dig a flaky notebook out of my workshop and install an older version of the Palm Desktop.
Result: I got the Palm Desktop installed, then noticed that this notebook had Outlook on it. I synched my Palm with Outlook, then installed the Yahoo Sync tool. Performed a sync and all my Palm data was sucked up into Yahoo. Went back to my Vista machine and ran the BB sync and all the Yahoo data came down.
Thanks for all your help.
