I just got a free Nokia 8210 :), (and I might add that Vodafone just rang me to say that I have won a free Sim2 :)).

Anyway, getting to the point; I have a Palm M105 (Palm OS 3.5) and I noticed that my 8210 has an IR port, so I was wondering if I could use my Palm (running some phone software) to say edit things on my phone like my address book?

Does anyone know if such software for Palm OS exists?


Cheers

Liam :)

I used to use the Eudora suite. It was free, easy to set up and worked well.

I only assume thet the IR port on the phone also means its got an internal modem. I use a 6210 which works fine with a pocket PC.

Where can I find the eudora suite?

I have found some apps to do simple things like send text messages, but havent found any POWER apps that let you change settings edit address book stuff etc.

Hi Liam

You may want to try the following:
http://www.handango.com
and do a search for funBOOK. That will allow you to sync your Palm phone book with your phone. It does however cost $US19, which is about the going price for this sort of software.

From memory I used the trial version of one of these sync apps to transfer my Palm phone book to my Nokia 6210. I just used it the once to get the bulk of my contacts onto the phone and since then have just done the additional ones manually. Cheapskate, eh?

There is a trick to it that I cannot now remember. It didn't seem to be working until I figured out that there are two possible destinations - the phone or the sim card. I can't remember which is the correct destination, but I am pretty sure it is the latter. You may just have to try.

You may also find some apps at:
http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/pilotsoftware/

And with due deference to the wisdom of those on this august site, you may also like to join two Yahoo groups. One is called mSeries, and the other is called palm-nokia.

Both groups have file sections that contain freeware apps for your Palm, and there are a lot of wise Palm users who can advise you.

Hope that helps.
