My phone is also my PDA. Every afternoon I go back to the office, plug in my phone and sync with my local Outlook. I bought a Windows Mobile 7 phone and I was shocked I couldn't do that. It went back the next day. I had several friends whose Hotmail accounts were somehow hacked last year and they were sending viruses everywhere. There is no chance my contacts are going in the cloud. Do you folks think the Inspire will sync with local Outlook as well as a Blackberry? Can you believe Microsoft doesnt sync as well as a Blackberry (thats rhetorical)?
