Just retired my V710 for this V3M. Overall, I am happy with it. Contacts and calendar sync'd to outlook via bluetooth and MPT 4.2.1 no problem and I love the size and contact multi letter lookup.

I went through virtually everything VERY thoroughly, and could not get past the same problem. I suggested trying it on his home desktop. His response was completely valid and reasonable. "If I have to spend more than an hour or two, (already spent 5 hours) it's just not ready for prime time." And He's correct. It was sold to him by Verizon over the phone as 'like an Ipod'. Well, it should be just as simple as an Ipod. plug it in, and it SHOULD WORK. A lot o... (continues)
