- Buy OKTA Touch
- Set up to sync with company Exchange Server - all PIM data + emails
- Leave company
- Decide don't need OKTA
- Buy Nokia
- Want contacts synced over
- Pair OKTA with home PC
- A.S. hangs trying to sync with Exchange account (now locked out as I don't work there)
- Tell A.S. to not sync any items with Exchange
- A.S. "I will delete all your calendar items"
- Im like "Great, cause I don't have to go to those meetings, I don't work there any longer."
- I click OK.
- A.S. stops hanging trying to sync Exchange, and moves on to syncing with PC
- A.S. completes this about 0.1 seconds later
Although it explicity told me it would "remove all calendar entries", it mentioned nothing about contacts!!
Now I have no contacts :-(
Friendly sys-admin at old workplace says he can dig out my contacts and put them in a .pst for me.... WOOOHOOO
Could have saved myself by doing a simple PIM backup before I started though - I have the tools installed!!

I did a similar thing a few weeks ago.
I'm now using Contacts from 2007-04-12.
Activesync kept all the names and trashed half the numbers and I have no idea what went wrong. I was rather annoyed and that's exactly when I stopped using the Touch..
Do you happen to know of any free alternatives?
Thank got my Symbian phone can just dump it's internal contacts as industry-standard VCF files to it's memory card.

I am an avid advocate of spb backup, run a full backup at least once a fortnight, especially prior to installing any software. Been a lifesaver more than once.
