    Have data on Palm synced with palm desktop ver 4.2 trying to import via "Switch Device Wizard" in BB Destop Manager version 4.3 on XP Pro w/ SP3
    When the "Select desktop organizer" window comes up, the selection I need is there (Palm/Treo or Palm Desktop Software) but it is grayed out. The Palm is connected but the BB Desktop Manager doesn't see it. I have not activated my 8130 yet as I wanted to get my phone numbers, etc. transfered first -- could this be my problem?

    What I did with all my Palm data was export it out to a .csv file or text or whatever, and then opened it up in excel to clean it up

    ... then once you've saved it in some generic format like *.csv then I guess you could import it via Desktop Manager... But that's not what I did. I went from Palm to excel, then to my computers email and calendar program Microsoft Outlook and now I just sync between Outlook and my berry using Desktop Manager.

    You are right, it is just that easy LOL. I just made it so complicated since my Palm data was such a mess that I wanted to clean and organize it before I did the transfer.

    I just bought my first BB, and cannot figure out how to get my calendar from the Palm Z22 to the Blackberry Bold 9700. I installed the BB software, opened the Device Switch Manager, and the options to switch data are grayed out. I can't do anything. I am running Windows XP, and the Plam version is 4.2. Any help out there? Thanks!!!!
