My trusty Palm V was stolen, so after doing some research, I've ordered a Dell Axim X30 624, the Dell Bluetooth GPS unit, and 1G SD card to hold map and MP3 data. Can't wait! Here's a few of my questions about this upgrade:
1. I learned that I can use Yahoo to convert my Palm backup info from my desktop to the Yahoo system, then from Yahoo back to MS Outlook (CSV format) on my desktop, which can then be synched to the Axim. Is this correct? Has anyone done this? If so, are there any problems with it? Is there a better way that I should be doing it?
2. I've read that pda's running the MS system use MS Outlook to sync up with the desktop or laptop. I have "Outlook Express" on my desktop, is this the same thing? If not, will my new Dell come with whatever software I'll need to sync?
3. Regarding the sync to Outlook or Outlook Express. I've been using Outlook Express as my email software, independent of my Palm data. When I start using Outlook to back up my pda info, will this reconfigure my current email address book? Are there any potential problems with this?
4. My cell phone is outdated, and my Verizon contract is up, so I'm going to be upgrading to something that can communicate via Bluetooth with my new pda. I was leaning towards the Sony Ericsson T610 or T637, but I read somewhere that these phones had some problems communicating via BT with the Axim X30. Does anyone have this combo? If so, are there any problems? Also, are there certain phones that are better at BT communications with pda's and/or headsets, or are all BT enabled phones created equally?
I could probably ask a bunch more questions, like why the hell do I have to wait so long for Dell to send my pda! But I'll spare you for now. In the meantime, any help with the above questions would be much appreciated.
