Coming from my Treo 755p, Verizon people would only transfer "phone contacts", and really, really preferred that I handle it myself. They (Verizon Corporate store tech support / customer service) told me that my call log couldn't
be moved onto my Moto A855.
Personally, I don't trust many with handling my data. I've lost entire databases in the past by moderately competent, well meaning tech support people that were correctly following a published procedure, (which proved to be incorrect in certain instances). If some of you have had good results with your local cellphone dealer transferring a large quantity (1000 +/-) contacts records of fair to heavy complexity, I'd say you're lucky. I'd agree that it shouldn't be that way, but it is.
The link I posted above, and here again:
works on lots of PDAs and smartphones, NOT only Palms.
Read that thread, but here's the real pearl for non-Palmys:
before you run it
, read that thread, and go to
PdbConverter - Index - shredzone.org
and read through it and it's links. While it was written specifically for PalmOS converts like me, the Java program actually does a few different types of file conversions, not only Palm file conversions.
everybody jumps to csv export/imports but vCard may very well work better for you in migrating into gmail contacts. Once you're there, and on your Android device, vCard is nearly ALWAYS the best format for sharing and handling contacts records.
csv is a format that goes back to the days of MS-DOS and is a "lowest common denominator" format. Android people and Verizon tech jump to it for that reason, and because you can play with your database fields and entries in a text editor or spreadsheet program, putting almost everyone in a position of being able to do it,,, and take the blame for their results when they do.
