What kind of phone(s)? Do you have a connection between the phone and PC? (Bluetooth, Cable or IR)

kaboom: does anyone know if there is a software out there which can transfer contacts from the address book from one phone to another one ??


When I had a KJam I used to sync my contacts and appointments with Outlook.  When I replaced that phone with a Nokia E71 I used the Nokia sync suite to load my contacts into the phone.  Worked a treat.

Use ActiveSync to sync your contacts with Outlook (Or save the vCards to a folder). Then use Nokia PC Suite to sync with your new Nokia.

Also, many Telecom stores can do this for you in store.

Telecom stores and dealerships have a system called synapes which will transfer contacts from almost any phone on to your new phone

The service is free when you buy your phone. They can also transfer from a voda SIM to a Telecom SIM

Funny you should mention that. It is my current phone.

If you like the Touch then you will be very familer with the palm as they both use windows 6.1 and are touch screen.

The Palm does not have the HTC touch flow software however.

I am getting signifcantly better battery life out of the palm. I am connected to my companies exchange server, use facebook, twitter (there is a front screen app for this now) and internet service as well as using it for most of my calling. I will get about three days of constant use out of it before it dies (I have wi-fi and bluetooth turned off).

The keyboard is a little small but is fine once you get used to it.

I had a Blackberry between the touch and the plam and I have got used to navigating with keys so find I am not using the touch screen as much as I thought  I would.

You also have to decide on how large you want the device and how large you want the screen.

The palm is the smallest of the smart phones and so has the smallest screen. If you don't care about the keyboard then you will miss the large screen on the touch.



Oh and to keep this on topic, you can transfer your contacts to it no problem ;)
