I'm aware there are 3rd-party tools to remedy this problem, but I'd rather not go that route and make my digital life even more complicated. Too bad, because I really liked Palm before I ran into this problem.
Is it really so smart? Really?
I've never had that problem. My first Palm phone was the Samsung i300, then the Samsung i330, and now the Palm Treo 700p.
If your contacts were on your Mac, that's one thing. I assume you're saying they weren't on the Palm to begin with?
I've never had a problem syncing anything. I've got all sorts of programs and data on the phone. I also have hundreds of contacts, with mucho info on most. Never has anything been garbled.
Would I like to get an iPhone? You bet! My wife wants one now, though my daughter thinks it might be too big for her.
But, I'll wait for 3G, and see what other apps become available. A book reader is a must, for one. So is my scientific calculator, my conversion programs, etc.
