Before doing the OS update, I was strictly using Wireless Sync for my contacts, email, etc. And I was connecting to the comptuer via USB for transferring music and installing software.

About a day or two before the update came out, ActiveSync would just continue to look for the phone and never connect. So I did the update and still had the same problem. I read that a new beta version of ActiveSync had just been released. So I thought I'd try my luck with it.

I did a hard reset, uninstalled AS from my computer, installed the new beta version, and then synced my phone. I was expecting the same problems as usual but everything worked fine. I was a bit skeptical at first so I wanted to wait a few days before celebrating but I'm on day 5 and everything is still working great.

I'm not sure if this will work for anyone else but I wanted to share and hopefully it will work for you!
