I had a Samsung Alias. Old school QWERTY CDMA phone. My contacts in that phone have phone numbers.
I also have a Gmail account that I use religiously. My contacts in Gmail have email addresses.
I also have a Yahoo account, an MSN Messenger account, an AIM account, and people sometimes like to talk to me through Google Talk.
I also probably have addresses somewhere...
Let's not even take into consideration my Exchange server stuff at work...
Now, Synergy is supposed to group them all together into one contacts list so that I only have one list, right? I think this sounds good on paper, but how is this not going to get completely bloated and require a lot of effort to clean up? For example, I now have about 200 email address "contacts" in my Palm Pre because we once-upon-a-time sent an email or two to each other.
Take the following example: I have a friend named "Bill." My contact info for Bill across the various areas all have different names and would look like this:
Bill's Cell - 800 555 1212
Bill Smith - firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill - billsmith
123 Main St
Los Angeles, CA 90048
...Isn't this really just going to create 3 contacts for the same person until I take the time to clean up all of the data? Where would I do this? Should I just go to my Contacts in Gmail and work through all of this?
