    I have US service through Verizon, with the original Verizon SIM card and no hacks or other mods of the phone. I am in Saudi Arabia and DO NOT want to pay for data here. I have okay internet service via my Lenovo T420 PC running Windows 7.

    Is there a way to sync the google calendar via a wired connection between the Global and my computer? While the cloud is wonderful, I have a totally clear sky and zero clouds, but a nice piece of wire and connectors on both devices.

    I connect via a wireless network in my work situation or at the hotel; I can also connect wired at the hotel. At home, when the phone is linked in or whatever you call it to Verizon and I make changes on my computer, those changes appear almost instantly on the Droid 2G.
    Could you explain "enable DHCP" ? Is it as simply as finding... uh, I don't even know how to ask!
    FWIW, I just turned on WiFi on the phone and connected to the hotel WiFi. It's been about five minutes and it has not yet synced, so I guess I need to know about DHCP.

    I have another question open in this forum, which is how to enter my local time in Saudi and have it still show as the same hour when I get home, that is, "12:00 Noon: went to park" does not turn into "1:00 AM: went to park," which is correct re GMT but which is worthless in my phone as I need to remember things at the clock time when I experienced them, not as related to GMT. Since I have no answer about that yet, I have to hope this doesn't give me apparently time-shifted entries.

    Maybe after I get that settled, I'll try the reverse tether thing. That sounds like a winner thing to know about!

    (By the way, I'm not such an idiot when it comes to audio and video....)
