Just got the phone...my previous one was nokia n81 (stolen) I am on old att network. My questions are as follows: 1. I got my contacts synched through Google mail. Can I avoid doing this and synch the phone with pc? I did tried PC studio 3 but the phone was not recognized. I was however able to access sd card. Changing usb mode from pc studio to mass storage had no effect. 2. Once my contacts are synched. what happends if I loose the phone or it gets stolen? Who ever finds it will have access to my emails with bank statments password recovery email private stuff etc... 3. After syching my contacts with gmail the phone numbers transferred but peoples berthdays did not although they are visible in gmail. How can this be addressed automatically? 4. When I add bithday to a contact, can it be added to calendar automatically or do I have to do it manually? 5. If all my contacts are deleted from gmail and I update the phone it does not prompt me ... and just deletes all contacts. What kind of sycnhing is this? If I add a contact to the phone will it be deleted on next synch session? Thanks in advance.
