Update from ThinkPost:

Several users have mentioned to me that they have been constantly impressed with our uptime. We have decided to make these results public. Our 3rd party monitoring service was started in November 2008 and was released yesterday to the public for monitoring (to ensure adequate data collection first). You can find this information on our homepage in a news link at the bottom.

Thanks again for your patronage folks!

Can someone who has used thinkpost on a Bold comment on battery drain? I am getting serious battery drain and want to see if it is indeed this software. I have only calender, tasks, & memos to sync every hour. I stopped syncing contacts because it took too long (over 2200 contacts)

Thanks.

Good evening!

Thought i'd pitch in here to the group (as I did reply to this email). The way any aftermarket sync software works is that it parses through all the information, figure out what has changed, and then performs a differential sync.

In this case, 2200 contacts is quite a lot, and while the Bold could handle it (as it has a faster processor than say, the Curve 8300), it will still take a lot of oomph to do so. Customers generally with >1000 contacts, >1000 events etc, are advised to do either BES or a USB cable sync. The limitations are as follows:

1) Insufficient processing power to complete an analysis within the timeout period (15-30 minutes) depending on network timout times.
2) Customers with a lot of data are more prone to corruption issues - this can be resolved by log fetching, but I am not fond of selling a product that I do not believe will work well.

At the end of the day, any aftermarket sync software is not a replacement for BES - simply an alternative - ergo, the price difference is substantial....

Hope that helps clarify things!
