    I am a standalone Outlook 2007 user (not on Exchange) and currently have a BB Pearl. I am thinking about going to an Eris but want to know how well Outlook synchronization is working for users? Is the HTC synch program reliable?

    I would like to make the change, but the BB synch is so reliable and crippling my Outlook use is unacceptable for contacts, tasks, and calendar. I'm just nervous about making the leap. Seems like most people are sold on the multimedia capabilities and are sort of settling for less effective PIM functions on the Eris. Thoughts/

    Thanks,
    Roger

    There's a BIG difference between the Droid and the Eris ... Check out the Sticky note above for lots of good details.

    this is especially important if you don't want to use "the cloud" to sync your information (some folks, like me, prefer a direct connection with a USB cable to sync contacts and calendar info).

    You will have no problems with HTC Sync. It acts very similarly to BB Desktop Manager. The only difference is that you cannot sync Notes or Tasks. Other than that, you have the same options.

    Thanks for the info. Are there any apps that can synch notes and tasks? These are important items to me as well. Surely, they have this covered somehow? Makes me wonder if they are really targeting the business user with these devices.

    Thanks,
    Roger

    Hey just an idea.
    Couldn't you set up a google mail,calender and contacts on your phone, use google sync and sync it to your outlook on your desktop? Kind of like having your own little exchange server...:)

    I sync my work outlook calender (exchange server) through google sync to my phone calender and it works great. backwards and forwards.
    Plus I have never once even looked at google calender after I set this up.
    Calender on my phone and calender on my work PC thats all I need.

    Plus I have yahoo mail syncing to the phone, works nice.
