    I recently switched & found an app for MS Outlook. Try Touchdown by www.nitrodesk.com . Only $9; and the first 5 days of trial you have complete access to the program.

    I used a Treo for years and was thinking of switching to the Palm Pre, but I didn't want to switch carriers. The Droid is a great replacement for the Treo. I got all contact info and was able to link up to my office e-mail within minutes. I'm still getting use to the touch of the screen. The only adjustment for me is the on screen keyboard. It's a little to sensitive for me. The other keyboard works great. I love that there are tons of apps available and some good ones are free.

    moving memos from Palm to Droid.

    I was able to move my contacts and calendar easily from Palm Centro to google and my Droid. However, I could not figure out a way to move my memos on my palm. i tried different apps including the gdoc and I tried to move my memos on google document but it would not move to my palm.
    Any of you was able to move the memos from Palm to Droid? how?
    thanks

    I actually was on an Samsung Omnia between my Centro and my Droid, so I synced my Centro to Outlook, then to the Omnia. After that I used csv export from Outlook, and then imported that with OI notes....kludgey but successful.

    Note: I have since moved to AK notebook on the Droid, but it seems to have import/export as well...haven't tried it.

    It took me a while, but I was able to get my memos onto Google Documents. I had them on my computer already (I used the Missing Sync, so they were in "Notes". I copied and pasted them into a Google Document. Then I synced that to Google Docs on my Droid.
    Hope this helps.

    I pasted them all into one document that I called "Memos". Then I used the app "GDocs Notepad With Sync" from Android Marketplace. Once you open the program on your Droid, you can press the menu button, and an option to sync comes up. This will then transfer the document to your Droid. You can edit it from either place. A bit clunky, but definitely workable.

    Treo 750P, 755P, Droid, I/Phone, back to Droid........
    My 4th 755P started to crash. Decide to change. Went with Droid. No sync with my work Novell Groupwise email and calendar which is critical. Went to I/phone. Sync, but HORRIBLE cell service. Back to the Droid. Trying to figure out whether to keep or buy a new 755P on EBAY. Can we tether the Droid yet? Last thing, someone else mentioned. My contacts on my Treo allowed me to enter birthdays and weddng ann. It then merged into the calendar. So simple and cool. Wahhhhh...why wont the Droid do this. Okay one more thing, wanted a keyboard. A little disappointed. Big fingers dont work well. :)

    RE: Tether - PDANet is available (which I used on 755P). Havent set it up yet on droid, but my experience with June Fabrics is good enough that Im pretty confident. Will be setting it up in about a week (right before I travel again) so that I get the most out of the trial period.
