No Gmail account? No worries. VZ only offered 2 solutions: import to gmail or have VZ store transfer the contacts. You can export all your contacts from Palm Desktop into Droid, w/o any 3rd party intervention. 1) In Palm Desktop go to / Contacts / "Select All" 2) Go to File / export / choose "export as Vcard" 3) connect your Droid to PC / MAC , and select "Notifications" / USB.. / "Mount" on the Droid. 4) Locate your Droid microSD, (it will show up as a new drive letter), Copy your Vcard export to the Droid card. 4A) Unmount/disconnect your Droid from the PC before proceeding to step 5. 5) open Contacts on the Droid, select "Import/Export" 6) Select Import from SD card. total process takes about 5-10 min. For reference, 1 contact record on the Vcard is about 1k, while a book of over 600 contacts, is about a 121k vcard. The export will carry over all your numbers, emails and addresses for each contact, as well as some notes. Hope that helps..
