    Hi All,

    I am intending to buy a Treo 650 tomorrow or Saturday and am hoping to get this question answered in time. I currently use an O2 XDA Atom which runs Windows Mobile 5 (WM5) and I sync with MS Outlook on a pc using MS ActiveSync. Will I be able to sync my data from Outlook to the new 650 and what software do I use? I am keen to get everything sync'd and for me that means calendar, contacts and notes. WM5 contacts have a number of phone numbers and email addresses aswell as birthdate, anniversary date, spouse and children names and a notes field to boot. Will all these have a place on the 650?
    Thanks.

    You can sync all that via the Hotsync process, using the USB cable.

    When you install the Palm software, it will give you the opportunity to select whether you want to sync with Outlook or Palm's own PIM PC software called Palm Deskop.

    Select "Outlook" during that installation and you should be all set.

    Thanks. I noticed a thread about the Palm software having been updated. Should I download the latest version rather than the bundled one?

    Unfortunately, the one on the CD (ver 4.1.4) is still the latest one for the Treo 650. It has capabilities (conduits) that are not included in the download version.

    Do apply the updates available for the Outlook conduit at

    OK will do. Did you say that all the fields I want also exist on the 650?

    I'm not sure. I don't use all features of Outlook.

    For more features, Chapura offers Keysuite:

    This uses it's own data files on the Treo. You won't be able to use other 3rd party software like datbk6, Agendus, 2day etc to view/edit PIM data on the Treo.

    Chapura also offers better sync software

    if you want to continue to use the standard Palm data files on the Treo.
