Basic Microsoft Active sync info??

Could not locate the info anywhere.

I synced my phone last week using activesync.
I lost my phone yesterday.

If I buy a new phone , could I just simply sync the new phone and all my contacts and files will be on the new phone?

Re: Basic Microsoft Active sync info??

chillout has it right
you have to have some other program to 'catch' the data when you sync, i use Outlook which is the most common but there's others out there. as long as you have the data backed up somewhere activesync can put it back on your phone, i actually did this just yesterday after i reflashed my mogul

What that makes no sense? So what the point of using activesync? I remember using Palm Hotsync , it would save everything by itself!

Re: Basic Microsoft Active sync info??

if you want the conspiracy theory answer: its because microsoft wants you to buy more software so they can make more money
the point of activesync is just to be a bridge for your device to your computer. it can be used to install stuff and enable file explorer to access your device but that's about it on it's own.
palm went the extra mile and included the palm desktop (i think that's what its called) which is actually a separate piece of software, but they threw it in anyway.

yea that is what it is exactly called. my bro has the 755 and I clown him for not having a windows phone. Now he is clowning me. Palm Desktop syncs everything!!

So all in all my files and contacts are lost?

Re: Basic Microsoft Active sync info??

I don't want to start a new thread for this, I hope someone has the answer for me..
I just reinstalled windowxp on my laptop. After installing Activesync it connected the phone just like it should but after it started syncing it popped up a message saying I don't have outlook installed on my pc. It only can sync the files but not my contacts. I have out look installed. If I can't sync my contacts and emails than why the hell I need this for. Any help? Please....

Re: Basic Microsoft Active sync info??

Yes you need Outlook to sync your contacts unless you wanna use PIMBackup to back them up as well as a few other things. Why do you need AS if you do not have Outlook? Because that it how you will transfer things from your PC to your PPC if you do not have a card or card reader.
