The new fancy

I have finally given in and gotten a crackberry.
Not the original crackberry, but a crackberry none-the-less. I’ve already got it hooked up to sync down my gmail and $job email. The IMAP client is fantastic; I just wish Outlook’s were nearly as good.

The first problem I ran into was a borked sync of contacts, calendar and tasks from Outlook. Thankfully, other have run into the problem and solved it. If anyone ever runs into errors that look like this and have Verizon’s wireless sync installed, the fix is to go into Wireless Sync -> Settings -> Connection -> Advanced -> Enable other sync apps.

Here’s the error log for future reference:
