Yahoo is currently two-way synchronization, as mentioned above.
...not to mention that you get your Calendar with these services, which ChatterMail did not do on the Treo. Rumors circulating say that Contacts synchronization will soon come, as well.
...or you could look at the BlackBerry Unite! product for use on your home computer.
any idea when 2.5 will release?
Also, I know about google's app for sync but does yahoo have one as well?
Last question, if I have been on BES (personal, hosted), will I be unhappy with everything else?
