PROBLEM: when I go to set up sync options it says I need to be connected to the internet. I am. I read something on this but can't remember where.
Anyone with a solution??????????
I was the who found and resolved this problem when I went from DM 4.2 to 4.5 and forgot. 4.2 doesn't require an internet connection, so it worked for me. Still don't know why I can't sync with 4.5 and 4.6. Maybe a Firewall or Outlook setting. I checked and didn't find anything. It may also stop the "update device" window problem other people are complaining about, since this workaround eliminates the need to be connected to the internet to sync. It prevents the internet connection. This is how I got 4.5 to work and just forgot about.
Now I can enjoy the phone and post hopefully easier problems to resolve. 1 Click start
