Anyone out there able to sync their HTC phone to a MAC computer?  Everything I have read only refers to PC.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

When you say sync, what exactly do you mean?

Syncing my calendar, contacts etc.  Almost like a back up.  I had a blackberry and it was quite easy.  I would have all my appointments in my i-calendar as well as my phone.

With Android you tend to sync with google calendar, google contacts, google reader, etc, and it's all automatic. You can probably get it to sync with other programs, but it might take some effort.

Hi, the best and cleanest way is to use gmail and its calandar and contacts within your web browser on your mac, this is totally seemless for what you want to do.

If however you want to continue to use the native apps on the mac then the following link may be of help, but using gmail as a cloud server is still central to this.
