    You are using what software for your Palm info and what desktop OS? I switched from a Palm T|X to a Centro and then to a Pearl. I have a Mac, so my contacts just magically transferred, but awhile back when I still used Windows I was able to use Bluetooth to transfer everything from phone to computer and from there to new phone. I bet you can do that just fine. In short I'm quite certain you will NOT have to re-enter everything. I'm a recent Palm to BB convert: you won't be sorry you switched

    When you go in to upgrade your phone, just ask the guy that's selling you your new phone to transfer the information from your Palm to your new Pearl. Although, with the price difference of only $30 after mail in rebate between the Pearl and the Curve 8330, I'd take the upgrade. You get better memory, GPS, and it comes with a free 1 gig memory card.

    If you do it in the store, I would ask them to switch it over.

    Also if you have windows, you can use the Desktop Manager and use the "Switch Device Wizard" which works well.

    A bit off topic, its funny how the DM provides BB to BB and Non-BB to BB, but no BB to a Non-BB 'Switch Device Wizard'
