And, no, I do not sync my phone with my computer. The last time I tried that with a Blackberry several years ago, it completely screwed up my Blackberry. It took me weeks to recover the correct setting.
So because of one bad sync, years ago on a completely different platform you won't sync your device? Even though the vast majority of millions of people (most of which have no idea what they are really doing) do so every day without a problem?
Eh I suppose it is no big deal since Android is designed to be independent of a host PC. I do hope you have figured out ways of getting your data on and off of the phone and backup regularly though. At least that is the lesson I would of taken away from the experience.
