Notes • Some information types such as Favorites, Files, and Media cannot be selected in ActiveSync Options on your device. You can select or clear these items only from your computer’s Windows Mobile Device Center or ActiveSync.

A computer can have sync partnerships with many different Windows Mobile powered devices, but a device can have sync partnerships with at most two computers. To ensure that your device will synchronize properly with both computers, set up the second computer using the same synchronization settings you used on the first computer.

Outlook email can be synchronized with only one computer.

Troubleshooting Sync Connection Problems

In some cases, when the computer connects to the Internet or a local network, it may disconnect the connection with your device in favor of the Internet or network connection.

If this happens, tap Start>Settings>Connectionstab >USBtoPC, and then clear the Enableadvancednetwork functionalitycheck box. This makes your computer use a serial USB connection with your device.

Synchronizing via Bluetooth
