Facing Your Worse Fear

By

One of the worse things that can happen to a Real Estate Agent is loosing their entire contact list or address book on their phone.  Without an address book what is a phone?  Is that what they mean by paper weight mode?

Have you seen the new Windows Mobile commercials designed to make us think a Windows phone is just like an Apple of Google phone.  Are they all the same?  I used to use an HTC with Windows Mobile.  I tried to download dozens of apps.  It seemed there were six different ways to download apps and if you didn't follow the correct procedure it wouldn't work.  I wasted hours of time, about 1 out of every 10 apps worked. 

Syncing is another exciting experience with Windows Mobile.  If you are a computer geek it should be no problem going on the Internet to download the 3 apps required to convert your Windows address book to another format then to another to finally back it up on your computer.  The exciting part is when Windows erases the entire address book from the phone.  At which time you have to search the Internet to figure out how to load the back up.  After restoring the address book to the phone you find out the new format is last name first.  Have fun changing them all manually.  All the ring tones are also deleted.  In a way using Windows Mobile was exciting.

After using a Google phone for months I would never go back to Windows.  With Google the  apps always download successfully.  And there are more to choose from.  After 6 months I have had no problems backing up and syncing the address book.  And there was nothing to set up, it was like they knew I bought the phone to back up the info on the address book and the calendar.  Thank you Google.  When are you going up with an OS for a PC to replace Windows?  I'll be the first in line to use it.
