Import ACT to Salesforce

Hello, we are using ACT 2010 right now and we want to switch to the cloud and use Salesforce. Now we are only using very basic features of ACT: adding  a contact, and then adding manual notes.

I want to export this data to Salesforce. Salesforce told me the contacts can be imported via CSV but they are not sure about all the notes. Has anyone done this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am going to just use the basic Contact Manager edition. Please advise we are looking to swap asap.

You can't import Notes into the Salesfoce basic edition ... it's one of the limitations of the cheaper versions

Well, when you look at the cost of SalesForce Professional or Enterprise over a year, it's not all that much ... I could probably get it for you at $345
