Contact Migration Completed
For the past 3 months I encountered a problem with HTC Hero - Contact List crash.
I used to synchronize HTC Hero Contact List with my Outlook, my ultimate contact management. Therefore I will have access to information of all my friends, partners, vendors, colleagues, whoever I could think of.
The first time my contact list crashed on HTC Hero happened at the end of November, then it happened around once in a month, however, it is too much already! When the contact list was crashed, all contact entries on HTC Hero were gone. I have to synchronize HTC Hero with Outlook again before I could have all entries back ... yes, you are right, what about if I was on the road?
Therefore I started to migrate all contact entries from Outlook to Google Contact, which I could synchronize HTC Hero Contact List directly with on mobile data network. I could also take this opportunity to update contact list and compare the content with information from Facebook, like birthday and email address.
Now I have 907 entries on Google Contact, which still 20 are missing when comparing to Outlook. I will try to find them out - but at least, I could have all my contacts back if the Contact List on HTC Hero was crashed again.
