Anyone out there using this on older devices?

I have Moxier on a LG Android, but it won't hyperlink URLs in emails, and syncs contacts to its own DB, instead of the handset default DB. This means all those contacts are not visible to the dialer.

RoadSync does it, but won't sync Exchange folders.

Any other options? Alternatively anyone rooted this device and installed something newer?

In case no one else answers at all: 

The LG has been rooted, but any alternative ROMs are still Android v1.5 as far as I know, based on the stock ROM. I don't know if LG have been good and released the source code. They should, but some of the phone makers are slow to get their heads around this part of Open Source.....AOSP have been the best, but that source then needs to be ported to any given phone (driver blobs included or source added, if available)

Also, the MS Exchange stuff tends to be proprietary licensed software, so there aren't many / any free apps that can do the job.

The Nexus One's Exchange support is very good....but mine is now on Android v2.2 and I can't now recall what it did on the stock Android v2.1.

Touchdown, from Nitrodek does folders and tasks.

A bit more expensive than Roadsync, but there is a 30 day trial.

Touchdown does emails nicely. But doesn't sync contacts to the Android default contacts DB - so it's not integrated with the dialer, SMS, etc.

Roadsync does a bad job on emails, but does sync contacts to the default DB and it shows up in the dialer, etc.

Moxier doesn't hyperlink URLs in emails and like Touchdown it syncs contacts to its own DB.

Why can't these companies create decent programs?

Actually Touchdown has a "Copy to Phone" feature in the contacts app - what a waste of time and double use of (expensive) memory...

Exchange support on Android 2.1 on the N1 was pretty average. You could emails only and it didn't do contacts or calendaring. You had to do a workaround by syncing the calender on your PC with Google Calendar and then sync Google with the N1.

On Android 2,.2 it's pretty well integrated. I don't do a lot but do sync email when I want to read it on the road (just sync the last day) and I have it auto syncing the calendar.

In email it syncs all folders and shows the folders you have in Exchange. In the sync options for an Exchange account you can sync contacts also though I don't.

No idea if an older phone can be loaded with Froyo though.
