Switching to iphone...

After the love/hate relationship we've had with our Treos for the last couple of years, J and I switched over to the iphone today. I've spent the better part of 7 hours, just setting them up. Mine was relatively easy, because I have a mac, and already synced all my palm contact info into i cal and address book, so it pretty much set itself up.

Then I had to do J's. I thought it would be a piece of cake. Just export his contacts into a csv file and import into the itunes on his computer. Nope. So I tried syncing his stuff into my palm software on the mac. But I didn't know how to import his stuff separately from mine, so now all our contacts and calendar stuff is combined. But that didn't work, because I didn't want to sync his iphone on my itunes, anyway. So I spent about three hours after dinner trying to get his stuff onto Outlook on his windows computer. Boring, so I won't go there. Looooong story short, finally got his info onto Outlook and it's been syncing with the iphone for a very long time. I don't think it's going to work.

Now I just realized I can't delete more than one email at a time on the iphone. I get about 200 per day! There's got to be a way...
