Just got home from Verizon with my shiney new Eris Droid. I plan to use HTC sync to sync with my Outlook. My question is, what impact does having a Google account have on the sync process, any? I read that once you sign up for a Google account it takes over and tough to sync. Also, any down side to having the Google account? I have not set it up yet, but felt very heavy pressure from the Verizon rep to have me sign up. She wanted me to do it while I was standing there in the store. What's up with that?
