Maintain data home and work Outlook data separate but combine on Treo 650



  • 1. Cannot read simplified Chinese on Tungsten T3!
    Dear all, I recently bought a T3, and tried to download some of my emails with GPRS. I tried quite a few times already, I just cannot read most of my simplified Chinese emails (but I can read some of them). The same thing also happens to most of my traditional Chinese emails. They all show garbage. But the English ones are read perfectly! I tried quite a few different combinations of CJKOS (I think the T3 comes with v4.61) options, but the same thing happens with any combination of options! The strange thing is that there are a few of my traditional/simplified Chinese emails that can always be read no matter what combination of options I used, but not the rest of them. I already tried to hard-reset the T3, and re-download the emails again. The same thing happens. Also, all the emails are read perfectly on my PC! What is going on? Thanks for any answers in advance. Regards, Patrick
  • 2. Req: Screen flipping software for Tungsten E - TIA
    I bought a Targus keyboard but it doesn't have the software. According to the manual: "NOTE: To view your PDA screen properly in the landscape position, your PDA must have a third party screen flipping software." Does anyone know of such a beast? Thanks.
  • 3. treo600 our man flint ringtone?
    I've been trying to get the "Our Man Flint" (recently from Austin Powers) ringtone on my treo600. There are various MIDI and other versions, but they just don't sound like it. I've only been able find a WAV version that sounds like it. Now, I've been able to play other WAV files on my Treo600, but for some reason, all the OMF WAV files I have won't play on it. Has anyone been able to put a WAV file on their Treo as a ringtone, and has anyone succeeded in getting a "real" OMF ringtone on it? TIA! Mark
  • 4. Synching between two usernames
    Can anyone help me with this? My wife and I both have long-used Palm IIIs. Hers was recently stolen from her purse, so I'm giving her mine, since I don't useone as much as she does. She had a backup of her Palm data on her PC under her username. My Palm has my username on it. She wants to figure out how to do a sync between my Palm and her backed up data so that she'll have *both* sets of data combined. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance for any tips. -SD

Maintain data home and work Outlook data separate but combine on Treo 650

I have a Treo 650 with a Palm OS.  I would like to maintain my home
Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks and notes and separately maintain my
work calendar, contacts, tasks and notes on each PC but sync both of
them to show on my Treo.  (I sync my home info with my husband and
don't want all my personal info on my work computer).  I also use
multiple categories for tasks on both PCs (close to the 15 category
max on the Palm each).  Is there a way to setup this up, maybe
switching between profiles or something?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >, 
Kelly says...

You can not do this "out-of-the-box", but any of the 3rd party conduits 
can do this. Some won't sync selected categories, some won't sync any 
record in any category marked private.

Pocketmirror (standard or pro) is one that will not sync private records 
and gets my vote as the best.

1.Sync Treo 650 with Outlook (work) and Palm Desktop (home)

I use Outlook 2000 at work and no PIM at home (Outlook Express, but that 
does not count..).

I just bought a Treo 650 (delivery tomorrow).  How do I sync with Outlook at 
work (my contacts, calendar, tasks, notes) and Palm Desktop at home?

Is it as obvious as installing Palm Desktop at both places, with Outlook 
conduit at work and Palm Desktop calendar conduit at home?

3.Outlook Treo 650 Palm HotSync OLERR lookup table

Where do I get advice on what these Outlook to Palm synchronize errors
Are they indicating errors in Outlook (which works) or the PDA (which
won't sync)?

HotSync operation started for donna on 12/21/05 19:54:07
Outlook Calendar
- Recovery Sync
Outlook Calendar synchronization failed

These were cut directly out of the PalmSource Outlook conduit HotSync
6.0.1 file:

The really frustrating thing about these messages is the hotsync used
to work on this new Verizon Treo650 Palm PDA cellphone and then stopped
all of a sudden. No matter how many times I reboot the Windows XP PC,
the PalmSource HotSync Manager 6.0.1 has been failing for more than a
week with these cryptic error codes above.

Is there a lookup table for these error codes?
Are they indicating Outlook errors (Outlook seems to work just fine) or
errors in the Palm PDA (which seems to work fine also)? It's just the
synchronization between the two that is failing. Contacts synchronize
just fine via the Treo 650 USB cable but the Outlook Calendar fails
every time (it used to work and I don't remember changing anything to
break it).

When I googled, I found someone suggested deleting the entire Outlook
profiles directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
which didn't seem to solve the problem at all (I think I got even more
error codes when I pressed the HotSync button on the Treo 650 USB cable
but I don't remember because I didn't save the original set before
deleting the profiles directory).

The Outlook profiles directory reappeared with Outlook 2003 (which
seems to work fine throughout),  and it re-created the following files:
donna_Outlook_profile.FAV 26 KB
donna_Outlook_profile.NK2 0KB
donna_Outlook_profile.srs 3KB

Do you know what these Outlook conduit Palm syncronize errors mean?

4.Treo 650 Outlook 2003 sync, datebook functions

A couple questions for you experts out there.
1. Anyone else having trouble syncing with Outlook 2003?  Does PalmOne
have a plan to fix this?
2. Has anyone figured out a way to set the defaults on the datbook
function to allow "alarm on" to be set as a default for a datebook
event? (Treo 600 did this.)
3. Has anyone figured out what happened to the "Journal" function that
was present on the Treo600?
4. Or the "template" function that was a function on the Treo 600
5. And has anyone figured out how to set the "default event length" to
0? (Treo 600 did this.)

It seems to me that PalmOne rushed this phone out to the market before
it was ready to go and they may have cut out a number of useful
features also. (At least to me they were useful.)  The memory problem
is inexcusable also and further evidence that this phone while
thoughtful and innovative has some very sloppy and unfinished elements
as well.  Anyone have answers to the above questions or the general
statement please let say so...

5.Treo 650 Outlook Calendar Sync problems

I have a Treo 650, and I run a Outlook Exchange, on windows XP. This
configuration is the same for both home and work
I installed my hotsync application
I have problems syncronizing my calendar both ar home and at work.

1. I set the preference to syncronize my calendar
2. After I syncronize, I realize that on the registry, no activity has
been done on the calendar
3. When I look at the preferences, I realize that my instructions on
the Calendar have been overuled, and "someone" changed into "do nothng"
4. I have this problem both at home and at work

I called Palm, and they only offered to sell me some assistance. Then I
extorted that in the Knowledge library # 8985 there is my answer. In
reality this reference is inexhistend
