    I haven't tried to beam for a couple years with a palm. But now my wife wanted to beam me some calendar info and I thought it'd be a good idea to share info back and forth and I found out I can't beam to her. I checked in preferences that beaming in fact was on. I then got out of launcher x and went to the native palm applications app and selected beam, and found a bunch of padlocks on items. Before posting here, I tried to Google the problem and someone said you can't beam padlocked stuff; 90 percent of the stuff on my palm is padlocked (why, I don't know. It was never an issue until I wanted to beam...). But the whole calendar app seems to have that padlock icon. I don't know if that is an issue or not. She has a treo 650 and I have the 700p. When I try to beam it says it can't find a device. Same for her....frustrating! Can anyone help? Please?

    Don't try to beam the Calendar app; she already has that. You want to beam the Calendar database: CalendarDB-PDat
    V > Vx > m505 > m515 > T/T > T3 > TC > 650 > 680

    As an appendage to the post above, if you are trying to beam only part of your calendar, don't beam your database as it will wipe hers out. Beam only the calendar events or the catagory of calendar events to her from inside the address book.

    I have stopped using IR beam. There is a better option now. Make sure both devices have Bluetooth on. Mate the two units, so they trust each other. Go to apps the hit menu and select send instead of beam. It basically will work the same way, but you will be given options. Email, and bluetooth being the defaults. One of the options is bluetooth. Use it, and a list of devices will come up... select her device, and enjoy less painful beams.

    One note, when pairing, the devices need to be visible.

    P.S. - You can't send locked apps from the palm apps. You'll need a third party app to do that. I use Resco Explorer, but Filez may also work.
    HP200LX -> Palm Pilot -> Palm III -> Sony PEG-300 -> Sony PEG-N710C -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700p -> Treo 755p -> (iPhone or Treo 800L or something unexpected)??

    Thanks everyone. Brandorr, I am trying, the bluetooth which I never use, and it is asking for the pass key. What is that? Is that different from the device password for the device? (ok, i made the same code in both devices and finally they paired as trusted devices. I will try to send events now...)

    I want to send items from the calendar back and forth. Basically to share appointments that my wife and I have.

    yeah that's all I want to do is to send some events; me to her and then she to me, so we can stay up to date with each other.
