I am using Android Version 2.3.4. I now realize what is going on on my phone. Since I was not able to add the Hotmail account to my phone correctly using the earlier instructions in this thread, I accessed Hotmail.com from my phone directly and THOUGHT I had added the Hotmail account when actually I was only accessing Hotmail.com through my phone browser and the Hotmail account was never added. I guess I need to start from the beginning because I am really lost now. I just never realized that setting up this sync would be so difficult. Had I known this, I would have just bought another Blackberry because this process is done without much effort on a BB. Thank you so much for your help. This cerainly has been a challenging and frustrating experience.
