    Hey guys, long story short...

    I used to have a Palm Pre Plus with Verizon, it finally shitted on me and I'm going to get an iphone. My contacts and calendar entries were being automatically backed up to Palm's webOS thing online (which I have my user ID and password for).

    https://ps.palmws.com/palmcsext/console/pages/LoginPage.iface

    Thing is, the folks at Verizon said the only way I can retrieve my contacts and calendar entries is if I get another Palm and log into my Palm profile on the phone. I want to be able to get my phone numbers and calendar entries and upload it onto my new iphone, or worse case scenario, have a doc with all the numbers and calendar entries so I can just manually input them in my iphone.

    Any help?

    There's no way to export them from that web interface...?

    I've never used a Palm or Apple device. Sorry.

    Can you sync it with google mail? Or some other peripheral such as that? Then use iphone to re download all contacts.

    Ok I figured it out. I called Palm (or HP, since HP bought out Palm) and there is NO WAY to access the contacts without using another Palm. Once you have a Palm, you can enter in the Palm profile and the contacts and calendar will load up on the phone. That's the ONLY WAY.

    So I called around, and my buddy at Sprint was able to get a hold of a Palm that he was gonna send out the next day. So he activated the phone, uploaded my Palm ID, deactivated the phone, then took the Palm and my temp smart phone (BB curve - POS) and linked them up with the machine and transfered my contacts. Then he wiped out the Palm and I went on my merry way. Once I get the new iphone 4s, I'll just have to hook up the BB and the iphone (Or use the backup assist on VW online)
