Default Sync Calendar / Contacts without EXCHANGE wirelessly

Please Login to Remove!

a while back, I used a standard low cost ISP to register and get email for a specific domain via IMAP. In order to get my calendar data, I downloaded Google's Mobile Sync for blackberry. By using a random gmail account, I used the gCalendar as a sync point, and then used a plugin on outlook called "syncmycal"

Basically, I was able to enter/modify calendar data on either the blackberry or outlook, and it sync'd utilizing Google's sync and gcal as an intermediary.

Question... how would I pull a similar stunt for the outlook contacts??? I am aware there are several ISP's who charge for hosted exchange services, but I feel that's defeat!!!

Thanks for your suggestions!

Check my Mini Version Tracker list. There are a few products there that sync with Google Calendar. Don't know of any that sync Contacts wirelessly though.
