This Palm/Mac calendar/contacts sync problem is the single infuriating issue keeping me from ordering a Pre today.
I still use a 700p, and it used to sync with my Mac OS iCal & Contacts perfectly... until Apple started selling its own cell phone and quickly disabled the Palm sync feature in the next version of the MacOS. So then I optimistically bought Missing Sync, and it never worked at all for me despite hours of frustrating trouble-shooting.
What could possibly be so hard that entire years go by and no one can seem to design a simple fix for this? I would have thought Palm themselves, for example, could have dedicated a team to fixing this MacOS sync problem long before the WebOS debut.
Someone should ask that at the next Palm shareholders meeting.
And no, I don't want Google "up in my business." I just want to do something very simple: Sync calendar & contacts data between a Pre and iCal/Contacts. PALM -- ARE YOU LISTENING?
If not, I'll probably buy an iPhone instead.
