    I looked for a simple and easy way to move the palm calendar and address book to the iphone. However, I did not find anything "simple" and "standard".
    So I'm just asking what are your experiences....
    Any hints on how to complete the migration?
    Thanks in advance!

    You'll probably need to sync your palm to either Outlook on PC or Address Book/iCal on the Mac, then sync those with your iPhone.

    I believe you have to re-install from the Palm CD and choose Outlook rather than Palm Desktop.

    (I did that with my 680)

    Ok, I found a solution... not easy, but it works.

    Datebook:
    - synch it with google calendar (i used goosync)
    - download from google calendar in ical format (from the calendar setting)
    - import the ical into outlook
    - sync your outlook to the iphone
    Addressbook.
    - install the ipod exporter plugin for palm from http://maxnoy.com/ipod/
    - export the plam desktop data with it (you need to manually create some folder). a .vcf format will be used
    - import that file with windows addressbook
    - sync the iphone with the windows addressbook
    - sync the iphone with outlook

    This pretty much works...

    Does anyone know if I can send the contact list/calendar from Treo 755p to iPhone via bluetooth? I've tried this with 755p to a Windows mobile phone and it works fine.

    Or you could just synch directly into Outlook using a product like one from Chapura
