How to manually keep your contacts synchronized

A light bulb materialized above my cranium as I was manually “synchronizing” the contacts between my Palm Tungsten E and my cell phone. Usually, if we get a new phone number, we put it into our phone and leave it at that. What about the geeks that has a PDA?

My solution? Write the number down immediately! (Put in in your inbox, too.)

Personally, I don’t carry my PDA with me in my pocket; it’d be too bulky. By writing it down, when I get back to my PDA, I can add that contact there as well. You have to be vigilant to do this when someone changes their phone number, too.

My goal: never to have mismatching contact information for anyone across all my devices.

What do you do to make sure you have up-to-date contact information for everyone?

  1. Hi there

    I am not much familiar about palm machines but i know of a free service who provides sync to mobile phones. I am using zyb to backup my phonebook and calendar data. Its cool and friendly. I think that they are working on a solution to sync ipods and outlook as well.
