thx for your comments - appreciate it.
i'm in hong kong and shuttle between hong kong & china.
i understand that i could change sim cards but the contacts in my outlook address book include long distance dial codes ...out here we use diff companies to dial diff countries depending on their pricing.
so if i change the sim card - every time i dial, i'll have to amend the number to delete the dial out codes - hence the need to have 2 separate address books.
sorry to get long winded....
my question still remains :-
a) can i sync 2 bbs with the desktop software with DIFFERENT sync settings?
b) is the calender problem on pearl still existing with 8800?
thx again for your help.
