    so i've looked around but dont see any threads on this....but newho, onto the question.

    has anybody been able to sync their contacts via ATT online Address Book? I've seen like 5 completed syncs in the log, out of prolly 30 total attempts. Either way, i cant log in to check the contacts online. I get this:

    I made the mistake of even attempting to use this service this afternoon. I didn't check the log until a little while ago and I saw a failed attempt every 15 minutes! I unchecked the sync option and it still attempted to sync. I rebooted my phone and it hasn't made an attempt in 45 minutes, so I hope it's done.

    I'll leave the phone on overnight and check the log in the morning. If there's any attempts, ATT is getting a phonecall.

    Yet another piece of ATT crap. :rolleyes:

    ya, it pisses me off cuz its an awesome feature if it worked. and i cant get kies to work so the only way i have to backup my phonebook is exporting the contact list. which isnt gonna work in the long run if i end up with a dead phone and need to get my contacts onto something other than a captivate.
