    Hello all,

    Glad to be on board. Have a question that I've searched for hours to find the answer to. As noted, my previous PDA was a Treo 650. I have thousands of calendar events and contacts I need to transfer to my new BB Bold. I followed the advice from another post.

    Since I am not allowed to post URLs, the thread name on this site is "How to: Palm to BB8830 Switch Device Wizard":

    The process worked perfectly.... until I doublechecked my Bold to make sure everything was transfered properly. Though all my contacts were transfered properly, only the calendar dates from today on transfered. All the dates from before today (1000s of entries) are not there. Am I doing something wrong? I've double checked the Treo 650, and made sure that everything was synced to Palm Desktop before doing the switch.

    Thanks to anyone who helps!
