Sure, one way and probably the easiest is to use Outlook, just sync all the data from your palm to Outlook.  Then install the latest version of Desktop Manager on the same PC and sync Outlook with the Blackberry Storm.

Sure for Palm side, use Palm Desktop to get data into Outlook.

For getting the Desktop Manager/ blackberry portion to work, just download DM from RIM's site for free at here:

Once installed you will need the USB cable and just hook that to the PC and bb device. Start the DM software and it will recognize the device, then configure the Desktop manager to sync with Outlook.  Use this guide.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi, it is worth updating Palm Desktop to the latest version as the data import feature is improved (assuming you still are using the old version that came with the device).  Once updated in the Palm Desktop program folder you will see an option to change sync type and ensure it is set to Outlook.  Once the data is in Outlook you will find Blackberry Desktop Manager on the CD that came with the device.
