Help with Verizon selection
      #29076 - 11/26/07 04:51 PM

I've been in a couple Verizon stores trying to pick a phone. I'm eligible for $100 credit with new every two. The problem is, every phone advertises V-Cast and mobile TV...neither of which I'm at all interested in.

Here's what I am interested in, can you make a recommendation?
- My biggest thing is a calendar/address book that will sync with Outlook.
- I'd prefer to sync manually and not be required to pay for the monthly wireless service.
- I've always liked flip-phones, if that's a possibility...not a requirement though
- Want to keep the price down.

I was looking at the LG enV, but I'm not sure it can do outlook sync. Any other suggestions?

Most Verizon feature phones are setup to use Verizon's Wireless Sync. There are manufacturer and 3rd party tools-- Motorola makes Motorola Phone Tools (though I didn't see the newest Motos on Verizon listed as supported) and there's DataPilot http://www.datapilot.com which I've never used but they claim to support a large number of current phones for Outlook syncing.

All smartphones support syncing to Outlook out of the box (Moto Q9m, Samsung i760, XV6700 and the PN-820 which is a fairly inexpensive Windows Mobile Smartphone in flip phone format made by Pantech.

Okay, that makes sense. Let me ask you this. Is there a way anyone knows of that you can sync your data using the cheaper hopke.net, or something like that?

I'm trying to find a way to get out of paying $20/month just to sync data. Any ideas?

I'm not aware of any services. sorry. Never heard of the one you mentioned but it looks like a small sports news portal?
