Any other thoughts?
PS: Since losing the Plaxo connection via Nuevasync I’ve installed Outlook in my computer and synced exclusively the contacts locally. And just FYI, Microsoft removed WiFi syncing from Activesync beyond version 4!!!

I have a google calender and I synced my contacts from my old WinMo 6.1 phone with a new 6.5 HTC Touch2 without signing up for plaxo. Thanks

NuevaSync informed me Plaxo was not allowing them access to their API but expected this to be solved in the short term.
I suspect it has to do with the fact that Plaxo moved their “Outlook Sync” function to the premium package.
If Plaxo does cut this functionality for good does anyojne have any other alternatives to sync contacts?

Smartphone: Samsung Omnia running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
E-Mail Client: Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0

I initially had some success with FinchSync (using a USB cable), but was unable to later get FinchSync to work corectly. I played around with varying things for a few weeks, but never succeeded. Finally, I tried the Plaxo/NuevaSync idea. It worked pretty much on the first try. As suggested I played around with it (adding/deleting contacts on both the Omnia and in TB) and everything works fine.

There are only 2 downsides I have encountered (so far):

1) I am giving all my contact info to Plaxo (and potentially NuevaSync).

2) I use the Thunderbird Addon on “MoreFunctionsForAddressBook”, which adds a contact picture (and other useful things) to the Thunderbird Addressbook. Unfortunately, the pic does NOT sync. My initial thoughts were that the Plaxo Thunderbird AddOn does NOT incorporate the additional fields from “MoreFunctionsForAddressBook”. However, upon looking at this further, I’m finding this to NOT be true (the Category field, for example, DOES sync with Plaxo). Thus, I’m not sure why the pic can’t sync. If I could get the pics to sync, I’d be very happy indeed. There are some less important “MoreFunctionsForAddressBook” fields that would also be nice to sync (Spouse’s name, Birthday, etc…). Anyone have any thoughts about how to get the Pics +/- the other fields to sync with Plaxo?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled and checked everything thrice and nothing changes. I am in a maddening cycle. Please help…

Side note, I am doing this because funambol does not work for me either…

I realize this is not a help forum and emails are not published…how can I get help?

It is simple, can be used on any PC, everywhere, at any time. One to rule them all… thank you very much.
