Thanks for the help on using the screen HotSync launch instead of the cradle button... been beating on that for a few days. Already have a 6035, trying to upgrade to 7135. Got almost everything loaded but cannot get the appointements to work at all, I'm using Time & Chaos with a Palm add on. Also, the phonebook now has a significant number of duplicate or almost duplicate names, would really like to start over.

The T&C interface builds pointers to the files it uses and should tell the Sync program where to look. Is there a simple way to clear just the phone directory file?

it seems as though if I can get the desktop software to see the data then it syncs properly. Is there a way to approach it from that direction? The desktop doesn't have ANY appointments nor does the phone.

Thanks, John <><
