    I am considering buying a 3G S, but I have one reservation.

    I need to be able to be able to sync the contacts and appointments on Outlook on my works PC onto my phone, then sync the phone with my Mac at home and vice versa. This is something I take for granted with my current Sony Ericsson phone using the Sony Ericsson PC suite and iSync on the Mac and something I very much rely on for my job.

    Can this be done on an iPhone 3G S?

    Connection with the works Exchange server is not possible according to the guys in the IT department, so I will have to be able to connect the phone via USB and sync it that way.

    Any advice would be appreciated...

    Am I to take 60+ views and no reply as a 'no'?

    I thought as much. I've been looking into it, and the only solution appears to be an elaborate setup where you sync your works Outlook calendar with Google Calendar, then sync your iPhone and iCal with that. All I wanted to be able to do is connect-sync at work then connect-sync at home like I do now, but it looks like I'm asking too much.

    Think I'll stick to Sony Ericssons.

    Haha. You can use it as a spirit level, but it won't do the basic stuff that a free phone will do. Oh dear. Thanks for the help Chobbs.

    That was weird??? Not sure what you mean, but good luck anyway Also I do not have to hook the phone up to anything. It gets all of my needed updates over the air...instantly! What a great device!!!
