Question ID: 722712
I want to purchase a Palm Treo 650 cell phone from Verizon. However,
before I make such a purchase, I would like to know:

1) Can I can periodically hotsync (transfer) the data I have in my
Desktop PC Lotus Organizer software progam to the Palm Treo 650 cell
phone? (Does the Palm Treo 650 cell phone ship with an accompanying
hotsync program that will accomplish this?  If not, is there a
third-party software program that can accomplish this?)

2) Can I similarly hotsync (transfer) my Outlook Express Address Book
from my Decktop PC to the Palm Treo 650 cell phone?

Hi zoom2326,

The Palm Desktop software is included in the Treo 650 package.

The following is an excerpt from the Palm Support Knowledge Library.
However, I suggest you read the guide in its entirety for a better
understanding of your Treo 650 and its features.

Install Palm Desktop and connect to your computer 

"All users need to install the version of Palm Desktop software
included in the Treo 650 package, even if you already have an earlier
installation on your computer.

If you use Microsoft Outlook, you'll still need to install the new
software from the CD-ROM included with your Treo 650 smartphone.

About Palm Desktop: Palm Desktop lets you enter appointments,
addresses, and other information on your desktop computer. Then you
can transfer the information to your handheld using the HotSync
process. It's the fastest way to enter lots of information.",Kb=PalmSupportKB,ts=Palm_External2001,case=obj(7628)#3
