New to all this - questions and feeling pretty dumb

I've had a cell phone for years - usually the latest and greatest - also a Palm PDA - moderately used. I, of course, decided I needed the 6800 - and got it 2 days ago.

While most things are explained - I'm lost of finding answers to a few things.

First - With ActivSync - I have a desktop with XP and a laptop with Vista... can I download both applications and use the 6800 on either computer?

Second - once I enter contacts and sync with my PC, is there a way (like with a standard PDA) that I can access the contacts on my PC, make changes - and then on the next sync have the new information on the 6800? The manual talks like you should, but I can't find the files on my PC to access.

Third - In reading through the forum, I see a lot of "changes" being made through reg editors and such to make some things better. How do you download something to the 6800? Is it like a regular computer, you go online to a site and click to download and it just goes?

I guess that would also answer how I get ringers and screensavers and such as well........

I thought I was fairly intelligent, but I feel quite stupid working with this gadget........ I LOVE IT!!!! it's just making me feel a little dumb at the moment.

I thank anyone who can help me out with some of the finer points of the 6800.

1 - I have the same setup(xp on desktop and vista on laptop). I downloaded and installed activsync on the desktop(xp) but you don't have to install activsync on the laptop(vista). Vista uses a different app to sync with the phone. I think its called sync center or something like that - on my laptop it's in the control panel called sync center. All I had to do was just plug my ppc into my laptop and it started the setup wizard.

2 - the mogul synce your contacts and calendar with outlook on your pc. You can also set it up to sync files between the two. This is all set up during the setup wizard when you first connect the phone to the pc. Any changes that are made on one are changed on the other the next time it syncs.

3 - yes you can download to the 6800 by just clicking the download link online. You can also download to your computer and then use file explorer on your computer to copy the files to your 6800.
for ringtones you should put them into the My Documents/My Ringtones folder on the device
also I recommend using HTC Home plugin and the Customizer here
*8/20/2007* HTC Home Customizer v0.8b (Live Downloads!)
If you download the hhcv08b_140 zip file at the end of the first thread to your computer then unzip it and copy the .cab file to your mogul and run the cab file from your phone it will run you through the setup of the HTC Home plugin and customizer on your mogul.
Hope this helps some. Let me know if you have any more questions
Jay

help for #1 answer: the other version of active sync is called Windows Mobile Device Center!

Looks like all your other questions have been answered!
