Syncing your smartphone with your computer means that information (such as contacts or appointments) that you enter in one place – either your smartphone or computer – is automatically updated in the other, keeping the information the same in both places.
You must install Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager software on your computer before you can sync. This software came on a CD with your Palm OS smartphone.
When you’re installing the software you’ll get the option to sync with Microsoft Outlook. This is a good idea if you already use Outlook for email on your computer.
To sync your Palm OS smartphone with your computer:
- Connect your smartphone to your computer with the cable that came with your device.
- Press the HotSync button on the cable.
- Messages on both your computer and smartphone will indicate that a Hotsync is in progress.
- When you see a message on your smartphone that the HotSync is complete, you may disconnect the phone from your computer.
