    Hey, I'm wanting to get a Droid Incredible when they are released. I'm new to the whole Android phenom. Currently, I have a Mac Book Pro and use Microsoft Entourage as my email, calender, contact software. I currently have a Motorola Q9c phone and use Missing Sync program to get my phone to sync.

    I would like to be able to load music from Itunes, my contacts and calender from Entourage. Will I need a new program to do this?

    Thanks in advance for reading this and thanks for the answer!

    :)

    Not to be rude but this has been ask several times,there is a search button up top that would provide any information needed but to answer your question yes you can try double twist and a couple other third party apps that will do this.you can search the others to see what's to your liking.

    i actually use all apple apps. ical, address book, and mail. i got them all syncing 2 way without special software.

    ical sync to google calendar via caldav
    address book to google contacts by just setting sync to google in preferences
    apple mail to gmail full 2 way imap syncing using this tutorial: Configuring Mail.app and iPhone with Google IMAP - blog.scottlowe.org - The weblog of an IT pro specializing in virtualization, storage, and servers

    didnt bother with music sync since i have 35 gigs of music and i still need my ipod to carry all of that.

    with what i have done... i dont even need to initiate a sync anymore. everything is done automatically via the google cloud! just suggesting this if you dont mind moving out of entourage (which i hated)

    if you want software to do a full sync for everything... yeah missing sync may be the answer. used this for my palm centro before and it could sync itunes and iphoto as well.

    I use multiple email addresses (yahoo, gmail and aol) at the same time since I use the different addresses for different parts of my life. Can the syncing you suggest work with all of the addresses concurrently. The sync needs to work right otherwise I will waste lots of time.
