It seems that I am not going to get the way I work on my Palm TX directly onto my Desire. So I am looking into using Google Calendar and Google contacts via Gmail sync as a workable replacement. I will be leaving email off my Desire for the moment; I have a Gmail account setup. Looking at Google Calendar. Can I import all my Palm diary data to Google Calendar and then onto my Desire? This data consists of entries going back to 1997 plus Palm "Notes" attached to many entries plus future entries with waiting alarms (some several years away) plus annual Anniversaries e.g. birthdays(with "Note" of birth year), deathdays(with "Note" of death year), event anniversaries(with "Note" of event year). I don't know how big the file I want to bring forward will be but hope it will fit in the Desire's memory! I have Outlook 2007 to act as a conduit from my Palm; when I get them to sync!! Another story. Can I use the event description field, in Google Calendar, to act as a replacement for Palm Event "Notes"; is there a limit on the number of characters in the description field? I spend a fair amount of time away from any connection so I use the "Notes" section of my Palm to add details of events and sync to my Desktop when I get home. I assume that when I next am connected my Desire will update Google Calendar? As for Google Contacts I note the present amalgamation of firstname and surname; shame because I do sort by surname on my Palm Desktop and firstname on my old phone.
