Sync contacts with yahoo??? Is it possible

I have a Sprint Mogul. I've been using yahoo for like the last 15 years and don't want to switch to something else.

Is there a possible way to sync my contacts and calendar with yahoo? I'm leaving my current job and currently have all my contacts on outlook and my Mogul sync's using the exchange server. But, since I'll be loosing the exchange server, is there a possible way to sync my contacts and calendar with yahoo directly from the phone without having to cradle it to my home pc?

The reason I don't want to do it through my home PC is because my home PC is a Windows Machine and it is my upstairs room that does not have AC, thus extremely warm during the summer. Therefore my everyday use machine is a laptop dual booting with CRAPVISTA and with Ubuntu Linux. I use Ubuntu on it more than I'd use anything else at home.

Thanks for any help.
Tim

Re: Sync contacts with yahoo??? Is it possible

I'm still on XP, because I utterly despise Vista for a number of personal and technical reasons. In any case, Yahoo can't currently sync those things out of the box, however, you may want to look into Yahoo! Go 3.0 for various Yahoo functionality...

Just head to http://go.yahoo.com/ from your phone.

PS: I should also note that using Yahoo! Go would be a largely platform independent choice, since they're more web-based.

Vista? Its just another gimmick that Windows is using to make money. Too many problems, deficiencies, issues, errors, etc. I hate hate hate it. Besides, now we have to worry about which of our electronis are compatable??? I call bs. XP has everything I need, and it makes me happy...

Re: Sync contacts with yahoo??? Is it possible

I love Vista, I view XP as being the precursor to what is soon to become a beloved operating system. I can say that I used to love XP but after using Vista for 2 years I can not stay away. I am also tired of the bad vibe on Vista about hardware and software compatability issuse. Even i have had capatability issuses, one with my logitec web cam which was designed in 2004 for XP, its internal USB mic does not work with Vista. But seriousaly if you forgot XP had the same issuses with hardware when it started out.

I truthfully believe that Vista is the worst operating system that Microsoft has released with the exception of ME. I have tried Vista several times and cannot get some of the software to work correctly. This is partly because of the insufficient driver support.

Now as far as syncing with Yahoo I know there was a way awhile back to sync with Microsoft Outlook. I think you should be able to sync yahoo with outlook then sync your Mogul with outlook. I havenít tried this for awhile don't know if this would even work.

Re: Sync contacts with yahoo??? Is it possible

Well you can sync your contacts, not so sure about calendars though. www.seven.com is a PUSH email application that's installed on your phone. It's free of charge, and syncs contacts and other PIM information, as well as real-time PUSH. I find it extremely useful, but it kinda eats up my battery life, so I uninstalled it.
[[EDIT]]
"SEVEN is mobile messaging in sync with your life or business. Now you can manage email, contacts and calendar functions wherever you are - in the office or on the go. SEVEN also runs in real time, so you don't need to wait for messages to arrive. To help SEVEN manage your day, all you need is five minutes and one password."
-http://www.seven.com/products.html

So, yes I guess you are able to sync your contacts and calendar onto your Mogul.
Hope this helps!
