Lotus to Palm conduits

by Volker Weber

You may remember the annoying problem with XTNDConnect PC (and its derivative EasySync Pro), that I described in vowe's choice: XTNDConnect PC does not reserve a slot for mobile numbers, therefore they will always appear in the Palm as "Other: Mobile" after synchronization. Now there is a cure:

Various products synchronise Palm devices with Lotus Notes. They all share a common problem: mobile phone numbers are stored on the Palm as "other" and in some cases the text "mobile:" is added in front of the number. This is particularly annoying for Treo users who try to send an SMS to a mobile phone number - the number does not show up in the SMS address dialog because the Treo does not know it is a mobile number. We have written a small Palm O/S application which cleans up the address book and removes this problem.

Your run this little tool on the Palm device and it changes the type back to "Mobile" from "Other" and removes the "Mobile: " string from the enty. Now, it would be a lot better, if Xtended Systems would clean up their act and make this tool obsolete. But until they do, this is a keeper.

Your program works well if one only has mobile numbers. The same problem exists for the PAGER: field. I have a need for both MOBILE: and PAGER: fields. I use a KYOCERA 6035 smartphone, with PALM OS 3.5.

Sorry, I can't see a link to your application? Can you give one?
