Verizon Subscribers Can Automatically Update Contacts
Oct 31, 2006, 12:01 PM by (staff)
Plaxo today announced a new BREW application that will allow users to automatically sync and update their contacts on many Verizon phones. The application allows Plaxo users to select which of their contacts to add to the phone's address book and then will automatically update that information if the user or contact changes any information. The application will also backup the phone's contacts, as well as provide access to any contacts the user chose not to sync to the phone. Plaxo offers free online contact sync between many desktop applications, which provides the data used by the BREW service. However the mobile service will cost $4.50 per month. The application will soon be available to Alltel subscribers as well.
