The one good thing with Windows Mobile: ActiveSync

That’s the one good thing with Windows Mobile.

ActiveSync.

Your contacts sync correctly.

Same with Nokia handsets running Mail For Exchange. It all just works.

Every since I arsed about trying to get Google, Plaxo, Apple Address Book AND Exchange to sync… big screw ups.

BIG BIG screw ups.

iTunes and Google repeatedly sync and create duplicates for some contacts.

A total sodding bind.

So much so that my 2,000 or so contacts are now 10,000… have a look at this:

Joy.

    seriously – i doubt active sync could pull that off. my limited experience with active sync is stale: i haven't had a windows mobile device to try it with in a few years. b ut when i did, it absolutely blew up in my face. and then, i was only trying to sync with address book and ical (which, at the same time, were syncing perfectly with my sony ericcson device).

    i'm far from envious of windows mobile and active sync. but hey, i'm still only trying to sync with address book and ical (granted, now i've got google calendar feeds in ical… but plaxo? really? not for me)

    I can beat that … http://www.atmasphere.net/wp/archives/2008/07/1… MobileMe needs to die. I use Exchange for work and then plaxo to loop it over to my personal Mac

    Have you tried Zyb or Mobyko? They create duplicates like there's no tomoro. ActiveSync on my p1 works fine but I don't have 1000 contacts

    try vufone.com – i believe it has what you are looking for. full sync of your phone (contacts, calendar, messages, media etc) to a web account, plug-in for MS Outlook and integration with Google, Flickr, facebook and more.
