    Great success story for you Pre 3 owners, or likely any webOS device. I work for a Fortune 500 company that had a massive server failure affectng the USA and South America. Evidently a primary and backup Exchange server failed at the same time. (BTW, not an IT expert by any stretch but something tells me there was some human intervention in this "failure" because what are the odds of two pieces of hardware failing at the same time....but that is another story)

    When the servers failed all connectivity to server data (email, calendar, contacts etc., was lost. My company decided to fix by installing new servers and create new email folders for all the employess. As they were doing this they advised everyone to delete and reinstall their exchange accounts. Well what they forgot to think about is that when the new accounts were created that all existing data in Exchange would be wiped out until they could restore from a backup, which 4 days later still has not happened. Well all of my colleagues that have BB's and iPhones of course lost their calendars and contacts when this happened. But syneregy saved me and my entire calendar and contacts still exist on my Pre 3 and I have yet to come across another person that was so lucky. Synergy somehow created a palm profile calendar and contact data base from my exchange information and I can still see everything. The weird thing is that my calendar events that used to be green for exchange automatically changed to blue and they show up as "undefiined", which never existed before.

    My laptop computer was wiped out too, but my trusty Pre saved the day--big time!

    Not sure what will happen when my company restores the server data from a back up and I might have a bunch of duplicates but if that happens I am sure a reset will fix everything because then the Exchange server will be restored.

    Yet another huge feature of WebOS that appears to be leaving the masses as cell phone manufacturers no longer make devices with webOS....Let's hope somebody embraces open webOS and makes some phone hardware down the road!

    HAHA that's awesome.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    if the undefined still exist after Backup restore of your exchange there is Agendaz to delete them:

    This is great to know. It sounds like they probably will still exist after the restore so I will have to see. Thanks for the info.

    That is very cool...

    And yet, given HP's penchant for enterprise, webOS hardware never seems to have made it into the conscious decision making process of Large Corp. IT departments.

    This story really highlights another missed marketing opportunity...

    LOL - I imagine you triumphantly hoisting your Pre 3 on high and crowing to colleagues that your data is intact.
