    I have a Verizon plan and would like to find a way to sync my calendar & contacts from Outlook to my home pc using a usb cable rather than having to do it wirelessly on the verizon (or Google) network.

    Is this possible? If so what do I need?

    Thanks

    ts

    Anne, You are making me nervious. I currently use a palm & have been considering switching to either a Blackberry or a Droid (Maybe I should stick with Palm).

    What do you mean by: "Forget the top 5, list ALL of your apps

    It's just a link to app recommendations by the forum members. Stuff I never would have discovered on my own...

    And I make all men nervous!

    Anne, you didn't tell me if there is a way to sync with a usb cord, I hope there is.

    Also, I'll bet there are many good reasons why you make all men nervous.

    Did you take a look at the link that christim provided? That tells you about CompanionLink and it's syncing capablilties. I hear nothing but good things about it.

    It's certainly possible. Companion Link is one option. There are quite a number of threads that already discuss the options. I don't have links handy -- I'd have to search, same as you.
